Activating the PluginBack to top
Now that the installation is complete, it's time to activate the plugin.
Go to the Modules page and scroll to the very bottom. Here, you see a section labeled E-Commerce. Check the box to enable the Checkfront plugin you just installed (1) and click Save Configuration (2).
You now see a Configure link appear to the right of the plugin. Click on this.
On the next screen, look for a box labeled Setup. Enter your URL in the field labeled Checkfront Host URL (1).
This is the URL by which you access your Checkfront admin area and was chosen by you when you first created your account. It is most likely [BusinessName].checkfront.com.
In our example, we use demo.checkfront.com.
Click Save Configuration (2).
If everything went according to plan, then you should now see a confirmation message at the top of the screen.
Pay close attention to your Checkfront Host URL. Depending on where you are located, your URL may not end with .com. It may, for instance, end with .co.uk.
Entering this incorrectly is a common mistake, so double check before entering it in the field, just to make sure!
