After purchasing SimiCart and logging into your account, click on App Management to go to dashboard. To get started, on the navigation bar, click on Integration. The connector needs to be installed in the Magento backend to sync your app and your website.

4) Use a FTP client (such as Filezilla, WinSCP, cuteFtp) to upload or copy all folders in the zip package to your Magento site root folder.
5) After the upload process completes, log in to your Magento administration panel. Go to System > Cache Management. Select all caches and select the action Refresh and then Submit.
6) On the main menu of your Magento administration panel, if you can see the SimiCart tab, it means that SimiCart Connector is installed properly. If you get the message "Access denied error" when clicking on SimiCart tab, you need to log out of the admin panel and log in again.
