Designing Your Website
At Uscreen your website is referred to as your Storefront. To customize your Storefront go to your Customization tab.
Select and install a theme: In Customization, you'll see a Theme Gallery where you need to select a theme for your website. This will be the general style for all of the pages on your site. Learn more about our themes.
Customize your theme: Once you install your theme, here is how you can customize it.
Further customization: In addition to your theme, you have further customization capabilities using the landing page builder. You can replace your home page with a landing page and/or add a new page to your website.
Note: Some changes on the Catalog page need to be made from the Theme Homepage, such as the Catalog page's header, footer, and settings. If you are using a landing page as your homepage, and decide you want to change those settings on your Catalog page, you need to go back and edit your Theme's Homepage.
Code Changes: For advanced customization to your theme, you can always use the code editor. However, you won't be able to edit your Catalog and Player/Video page using the code editor. If you want to edit those pages a developer can help you. Here are some great outside developers we recommend.
To add HTML or CSS to your landing page simply go to the landing page > Click the (+) option in between your blocks and select the block > Custom HTML
Sell Your Content
These are all the ways you can sell your video content.
If you want to offer Tiered Subscription plans, learn more on this page. For example: a Basic Plan, and a Premium Plan that includes additional content.
Choose a Payment Provider
You can find more information about your Payment Provider options here.
Paypal can also be set up as an additional payment provider, but it cannot be your main payment provider.
We recommend adding Paypal as an additional payment option because 11% of all online sales are done through Paypal.
Note: once you have customers making recurring payments, you will not be able to easily switch payment providers.
