PRINT OUT THIS PAGE - very important!!!! You'll need to keep a copy of this information so print a copy of the page and it in a safe place with your other site info papers.

You're all set with your Mal's shopping cart account, now you can set it up with the necessary info needed to process orders placed through your site - like taxes, shipping fees, payment options..etc.
You will also need the user name (1) and server ( 2) ( the part before .aitsafe.com ) to fill in to your storeadmin's Catalog Setup area to tie your site with Mal's.
Password for payment area
The first time you log in you'll be asked to create a payment password. This is for a different login area where you can retrieve credit card info on any orders processed, if you have chosen to set up your account to collect cc info for you to later process manually on a physical terminal. This would be for those of you who have merchant accounts and terminals you can use to put credit cards through.
