WebSite X5 Pro

When you set up your online store, you are free to choose the way order data should be received and stored: you can for example decide to receive an e-mail when a new order is placed, or to store all the orders you get on an online databse.

Please keep in mind that you necessarily need to use an online database if you want to be able to handle e-commerce orders from the online control panel.

Please proceed this way to manage the orders with your database:

  • In the Shopping Cart > Sending order window, select Send data to the Database.
  • If you want the site administrator to receive a notification e-mail each time a new order is registered in the database, select the Send an e-mail to notify the data has been received option and enter the Admin e-mail address. In any case, you need to give the Admin e-mail address because it will also be used as the sender of the order confirmation e-mail.

#tip - Database and project export. If you decide to export your website using the Webspace offered by WebSite X5, you don't have to do anything: the database and server connection parameters are already integrated. If, on the other hand, you choose another Provider, you will need to report them manually. Please see: How to export your website using a Hosting Service different from the one included with WebSite X5.
