What You Can and Should Do
Since these demos sites are live web sites, you can completely test the Ecommerce functionality by testing their shopping cart features. You can add and remove products to and from your shopping cart and perform a final checkout.

What You Should Not Do
After adding products to your shopping cart and checking out, please do not perform the final payment step by entering in your credit card number. All the products within these demonstration web sites are fictitious and are not really for sale. So if you purchase these demonstration products, you will not actually receive them.

About the Design of these Demonstration Web Sites
Both the web site structure and the actual sample data you see within these demonstration web sites are included with the XLEcom program. A demonstration site is provided as the default template to help you get started. The program also includes many unique web site themes so you can customize the look and feel of your web site. The program comes with two shopping cart display options. You can either have the shopping cart open within the same browser window (In-page Cart), or have it open within a new popup window (Popup Cart).

Home Page Publishing Options - Please Read
You also have the option to publish either of two Home Pages. They are the Home Page with Ads or the Home Page without Ads. If for example you want to have specially advertised products on the Home page, then choose the Home Page with Ads publishing option. You can display up to four (4) products on this home page.
