Step by step to create your store in Bitcoin Shopping Centre.

The purpose of Bitcoin Shopping Centre is to create a space where the Bitcoin community can make use of their precious currency.

The current problem is that, although the bitcoin community is huge and why not say it, well capitalized, it encounters many problems to make use of the currency.

The supply of products for sale in exchange for bitcoin is very scarce in most countries and this makes it difficult for buyers to meet their demand.

To solve this problem, Bitcoin Shopping Centre was created to minimize the risks for both parties, since the merchant sells in bitcoin but receives the currency of his choice.

Here we will see step by step how to create an account on the platform and thus have your space, your store where you can sell your products and interact with your customers.

CSV product import

If you already have a store created with woocommerce, you can import a CSV file with the products.

If your store is created with a platform other than woocommerce, you will have to modify the database to adapt it. Our suggestion is that you create a product manually, download the CSV to know the structure of the tables and be able to adapt the database.
