Forwarding Your Domain Name to Your Reseller Storefront
Forwarding a domain name to your reseller storefront lets you use your own domain name of your choice for your storefront instead of the default URL.
The default URL for your reseller storefront is https://www.securepaynet.net/?prog_id=***, where *** is your program ID (Prog ID). This long URL is difficult to remember and hard to market. We recommend registering a domain name that supports your reseller branding, and then forwarding it to the default URL.
NOTE: To locate your storefront's URL, click View Storefront in your Reseller Control Center. You can copy the URL from your browser's address bar.
Forwarding redirects visitors from your domain name, such as coolexample.com, to a URL you specify, such as your storefront URL.
|Forwarding coolexample.com to https://www.securepaynet.net/?prog_id=***|
