The new e-commerce sections are available in the page editor when adding a new section to your site. E-commerce settings such as currency, taxes, or Stripe API keys for payments are available by clicking on under the E-commerce tab. Taxes can be calculated and added at the checkout if your prices are tax-free, and fixed shipping charges can also be added with an option to offer them if the order exceeds a certain amount. However, it is possible to manage several delivery methods by treating them as a selectable product, as demonstrated in the PC builder template.

By default, payments are not charged to be testable even if you do not have a Stripe account. To receive real payments, just sign up at Stripe, copy your Stripe API keys in PageXL, and switch to “Live” mode (PageXL PRO plan required).
