Add currencies to your store

Your store can be configured to show prices in different currencies and allow customers to check out using their preferred currency.

When you set up an account with BRIKL, a default account currency is selected for you. You can add more multiple currencies.

From your BRIKL Dashboard, go to Settings > Currencies.

Learn more about adding currencies.

Setup your shipping rates

Shipping rates are what you charge your customer in addition to the cost of the products that they order. The cost of any shipping rates are added to a customer's order at checkout.

Learn more about setting up shipping rates 

Setup your taxes

As a merchant, you might need to charge taxes on your sales, and then report and remit those taxes to your government. BRIKL doesn’t file or remit your sales taxes for you.

You can set up BRIKL to automatically handle most common sales tax calculations.

Learn more about setting up taxes.

Setup your payment gateways

All BRIKL-supported payment methods rely on Stripe to process your transactions.

When a customer checks out, they can choose to pay for their order using any of the payment methods that you've enabled with Stripe.

Learn more about payment methods

Setup your domain

A domain is the URL or website address where your customers go to find your store online. When you sign up for BRIKL, your default domain uses the format your-store-name.briklshop.com. If you want to change the domain that customers use to visit your store, then you can buy a custom domain name from any third-party domain registrar, such as www.example.com, and connect it to BRIKL.

Learn more about linking your custom domain to BRIKL

Setup your email

The Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) standard ensures outgoing emails for order notifications from the BRIKL platform are sent from your domain. DKIM uses “public key cryptography” to verify that an email message was sent from your authorized mail server.

2.3 Setup your microsite (team store)

You can setup online microsites for sales to events, teams, clubs, schools, companies or organizations. Microsites are also referred to as team stores, popup stores, brand stores, club shops, corporate stores or temporary stores. In this online guide, we will mostly be referring to the concept of Microsites or Team Stores.

A team store can be as simple as a listing page of products or can include multiple content pages with text, video and graphics. A team store can run on any domain name, including your existing domain name, a subdomain name or an external domain name. Team stores can be standalone sites (separate from your online store), or can be part of your online store.

Team stores have unique functionality like password protection, open and close dates, special reporting features, fundraising fees and customer panels.

  • Test successful and failed transactions
  • Test refunding and canceling orders
Open your online store
  • After you've tested your online store, you're ready for people to see it.
