2. Click mceclip1.png (top right) and then click on the Zencart logo

3. Click mceclip0.png and confirm: 

Account Name - the name you'll use to identify this account in Expandly (if you have multiple Zencart accounts to add to Expandly, we would recommend making the Account Names unique, so you can easily differentiate between the accounts within the platform) 

Store URL - the URL of the website you are adding to Expandly

Merge Setting - this will determine how you want to merge your products in Expandly, when importing from Zencart

Image Merge - this will determine whether images will be merged based on the URL, to avoid duplicated images on products within Expandly

4. Select your preferred method for adding the bridge file to your web server, using your FTP details click mceclip3.png

Manually

2. Extract the zip file and upload to your web server using the application of your choice (we would recommend FileZilla)

3. The file then needs to be saved onto your server, where the index. php file is stored. This is usually found within the public_html folder (however this is dependant on how your website has been set up so if you are not sure, please check with your developer) 

4. Find and open the public_html folder
