About the Instruction Manual

Most aspects of building and editing your artHIVES website should be self evident by the presence of onscreen prompts and instructions. This instruction manual is designed to compliment the general intuitive design of the artHIVES editing system. Advanced users may find little reason to consult this manual, however it is recommended that all users read the Troubleshooting section.

Multiple Cart System

Because any sale is a direct transaction between the buyer and the artist, artHIVES has developed a unique multi-cart system which allows customers to navigate between different artist’s websites and make purchases from more than one artist, resulting the the creation of more than one shopping cart.

In this case payments to each artist need to be processed separately.  After the customer makes payment to the first artist they will be returned to artHIVES in order to process the next artist's item/s in the buyer's cart.
