Chip makes it quick and easy to create a fully branded online store via custom domains. When designed effectively, custom domains strengthen brand value, encourage repeat purchases, improve upselling, and ultimately increase sales.
Sign in to your Chip account, click “Domains” and then click “Create Domain” to get started with domain creation.
Once on the “New Domain” page, you must name your website, add social media links (optional), upload a homepage banner and logo, and choose a highlight color to complement your brand.
Click “Proceed to domain name registration” once domain details are complete. Enter your domain name below to check for availability—a green checkmark will appear to confirm. Click “Proceed to Payment” to complete the process. Domains will be ready in roughly three hours.
All-inclusive annual fee of $20
You will be charged an annual fee of $20 for your custom domain. This fee covers domain name registration, SSL certificate creation, and other administrative fees.
Want to add campaigns to your domain? You’ll need to create new campaigns and assign them to your domain. On the last step of campaign creation, click the drop-down list under “URL” and select the appropriate custom domain URL.
Select the correct domain URL for your new campaigns.
Collections are found on your custom domain homepage and they feature your storefronts. Collections highlight up to four of your campaigns and display one banner image with custom text. Click the toggle button next to “Collection 1” to activate a collection.
First, assign a storefront to your collection. Next, add a title, description, and a call-to-action in the font color of your choosing. Finally, add your banner images — we allow separate desktop and mobile banners for better optimization and higher conversions. Click “Save Changes” to publish your store.
There you have it! In just six simple steps, your custom domain is officially ready for business. To see a real custom domain in action, check out MerchForest.com.
