Are you in? Now connect your wallet clicking in the button located in the left-upper corner. You can use Metamask or any other wallet with WalletConnect enabled (as TrustWallet, Rainbow, ect).

Settings section

This is the first landing page you'll see when click on the link above and connect your wallet.
  1. 1.
    Name of your marketplace: Be creative, or just follow your brand path. Important! Take in consideration that this is the only feature that cannot be changed once deployed because once in production this option can't be edited. Think well about this.
  2. 2.
    Marketplace email: This email won't be published and this is the contact method we will use in order to send you (with your consent) our Newsletter and, if you are Premium user, you'll receive your bill there as well.
After filling those both lines, click on the blue button «CREATE MARKETPLACE», sign digitally in your wallet. You will get a pop-up message that will need your authorization.
Digital signatures on DexKit dApps are safe and free, so you can use any wallet, even without funds.
Let's go forward clicking on «VIEW MARKETPLACE» blue button that will appear in your screen.

General

As long we filled the name of the marketplace and the email, we can fill the other sections here.
  1. 1.
    Logo URL. PNG or SVG 150*150px (square image) is recommended. Clicking on the «Marketplace by DexKit» image will open you an upload menu. We will host your images for you.
  2. 2.
    Favicon URL. 20*20px PNG or SVG recommended. Click on the icon and upload your image.

Domain

We will host your app using a centralized and reliable service. Also we are including a custom URL for your NFT marketplace with ---.dexkit.app suffix, so you won't need to buy any domain, nor any hosting to deploy your marketplace.
At the same time, we're keeping the custom domain section, so you can use one of your domain's CNAMES and call your NFT marketplace from there.
Done here? Just click on «SAVE» blue button. You may be asked to sign digitally again with your wallet.
We have a nice tutorial here about adding a CNAME entry on CloudFlare.
When you are adding your CNAME following 'cname.vercel-dns.com' in your hosting provider you can add as well an A-type registry, with '@' as Name and '76.76.21.21' if you're facing issues with redirection.
If you are not using this optional feature you can keep the field in blank and move forward.

Social

Do not want to place any social network? You can leave these fields blank and continue.
We will add more social media profiles as long we receive more petitions. After finishing this part, click on «SAVE» blue button and continue.

Layout section

Theme

Choose from the currently available color combinations or just pick your custom colors to fit your brand guidelines. On this version we included as well the «dark mode» feature (because we know that looks awesome and it's eyes-friendly).
After filling this section with your colors, press on the blue «SAVE» button at the right-bottom corner of the page. Sign digitally and continue.

Pages

Perhaps this is the most important and interesting section of your marketplace since here you can let your imagination run wild in order to arrange the available elements for your benefit.
Let's review the main elements that make up this section:
Page section
This is the primer page section you will see after creating your first crypto website / NFT marketplace.
Inside this section you can put default prebuilt sections (clicking on + ADD SECTION button) or adding a custom one clicking below in the «+ ADD CUSTOM SECTION» button.
You can edit the prebuilt ones with your data or just delete each one and start building your Home page from scratch.

Tooltip usage

Clone section
Preview section
Edit section
Delete section
Move section up
Move sect. down
Create the pages you will need for your NFT marketplace. Take in consideration that the only page that will have the pre built components on it's the Home one. Every time you create one it will start from zero components.
🧙‍♂️ Master tip: are you planning to add a lot of data? create a full component page (without any information, only the empty component) and clone it the times you want. It will be easier for you to add all the collectibles information / contracts after you built the basic structure.
On this specific widget you will be able to input your featured collections or assets on sale.
Did you know that you can post any NFT you want there to sell? 👀 you don't need to be the owner. Just use the NFT details and, if you get a sale from your marketplace, the fees will be yours 🥳

Custom pages

One of the highlighted features on this new update [28/10/2022] it is the inclusion of a very customizable section, in which users can add many interesting options that not only help your market look great, but also useful and functional for your visitors.
Be creative! Now you have more tools for it! 👨‍🎨🖼👩‍🎨
Did you have fun in this section? 😁 Now save your progress on the usual blue button at the bottom of the page, sign digitally and let's move on to the next part.

After finish adding more elements, click on «SAVE» to go back. Then click again on «SAVE» at the right-bottom to proceed.

SEO

Google wants to show your NFT marketplace, but you'll need to fill this section for it.
This section will allow your NFT marketplace to be indexed by the most popular search engines. Fill both camps and upload the share image that will be seen when you share your NFT marketplace's link. As always, we recommend to «SAVE» and proceed.

Fees section

Marketplace fees

This is an important section of your NFT market unless you want to work for free 😂
On this section you will be able to set a fee for each NFT traded in your marketplace. We recommend here to not be greedy and use lower percentages (from 1% up to 3%) in order to make attractive your offers. After you finish here, click on «SAVE» and proceed to the other fee section, this time for the swap interface.

Swap fees

Another critical section of your marketplace, pay attention pls 👀
Here you will set the fees you want to receive from your client trading operations. As long this will be one of the most used features on your marketplace, try to use low percentages here (up to 1%) if you don't want to scare your customers 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️💨💨

Data section

Collections

Here you will place all the collections that you have available taking into account that you can choose several networks at the same time for each of them. For example, you can add the collection of our adorable Kittygotchi NFT kittens (on Ethereum, Polygon or Binance Chain) and in turn you will be able to add your NFT collections on other networks that we support with 0x decentralized liquidity.
Such compatibility! 🤠 Even show off your NFTs on Ethereum and Polygon testnets! 👨‍💻

Tokens

Choose the pairs you want to get in exchange for your NFTs. In the list you will find the most requested pairs by the people, taking into account their market volumes but, if you press the add button (inside the orange rectangle), you can add any custom token as well.
