Yahoo! Web Hosting and the Catalog Manager can be used together to quickly and easily build a professional looking website.
Information on creating tables and items within the Catalog Manager can be found at: Catalog Manager Help
Once you've created the items in your Store, the next step is to create pages in your Hosting account. When creating these pages you can reference your item information from Catalog Manager using Store Tags (described below). For information on the site editors you can use with Yahoo! Hosting, please see: http://webhosting.yahoo.com/v/designtools/
When creating these pages you will use Store Tags in your Hosting web pages to pull and display product data from your Catalog Manager. Using Store Tags you can create custom HTML pages and templates then simply insert the tag where you wish for the information about your product to be shown. You can use Store Tags to display any of the information related to any item you've added to Catalog Manager — including name, price, sale-price, ship-weight, etc. Store Tags can also be used to add "Order" buttons to your web pages. For full details on Store tags including a tutorial and examples on how to write each tag, access the "Store Tag Hub" from your Store Manager.
Note: At this time, we do not provide assistance to users building home pages using advanced scripts or software. If you would like assistance with this you may want to research the information on the technology you are interested in using Yahoo! Search.
How do I attach a shopping cart now that I've created my site?
A shopping cart is already included with your Merchant Solutions account. You do not have to take any additional steps to add one to your site. Once a visitor to your site clicks on an order button, they will be taken to the Store Editor portion of your account and the item they have chosen will be placed into their shopping cart.
After you are done creating your pages, you will want to get familiar with the "backend" of your Store. Your Store Manager is where you can configure the shipping costs for your Store, review your site's statistics , customize your checkout flow, and more. This is also where you will open your store for business when you are ready.
