Request or Change a Storefront
Before setting up your storefront, you need to determine which storefront would be best for your needs. The main difference between "regular" and "generic" storefronts is who the person is who enters the credit card information.
- Generic Storefronts can only be accessed by pre-designated Andrew UserIDs. This storefront is typically used by administrative staff who receive credit card orders over the phone. The generic storefront is a generic web page that has already been created for you.
- Regular Storefronts are meant to be self-serve applications where the customer chooses their products and services and completes the transaction themselves, similar to what you do when ordering products from any online store. In order to use the regular storefront, your department would need to create your own website, and host it on your own departmental server.
A department can have both a generic and regular storefront using the same store number, if they desire. For example, this would allow the department to have customers register and pay for a conference themselves using the regular storefront on the website, while using the generic storefront to process credit card payments from faxed payment forms.
