Assumptions

I'm assuming that you wanna build an eCommerce site and you need to be guide through the registration steps, first steps to create our first store and you are a developer.


First step

Create an account

The first thing we'll need to do is create an account on Moltin's website, so go to http://moltin.com an create your first store on the system.

You will be asked for few data as First and Last Name, Email and Password

After that you'll be asked for more details but however if you don't wanna provide that information at this stage you can just skip this step and go directly to your account details.

Second step

Grap the store's credentials

Once we have an account created we need to login into the system and go to the account overview to grap our store's credentials.

Notice: You'll have by default an store already created for you.

And last grap the Client ID and Cliend Secret that you'll need to access to Moltin's API.
