Modules are blocks of code that add features to your store. You can use the Modules screen to add modules that you've downloaded from Miva Merchant or a third-party developer. Some modules are available for a fee, others are available as a free download.

Add a Module to Your Store

When you download a module (either free or purchased) it is generally packaged in a .zip file. The zip file will usually have an instructions document that tells you how to install and configure the module. These instructions can be quite different from module to module, but the general process is as follows:

  1. Go to Menu> Modules
  2. Click Add Module Add.
  3. In the Add Module screen, click Upload.
  4. In the Upload File dialog box, click Browse. Navigate to where the module file is stored on your local machine, then click Upload.
  5. The module file will have a ".mvc" extension.

  6. In the Add Module screen, click Add+.
  7. The software may take a few minutes to process the upload. When the upload has finished processing, click Update.
  8. After you click the Update button, you should see a new tab called "Information". Select the Information tab and make sure that the Active checkbox is checked.
  9. Mail Chimp Module

  10. Check the installation instructions that were included with the module and follow any remaining steps.

Remove a Module from Your Store

The steps to completely remove a module from your store vary quite a bit from module to module. Generally you have to look inside the zip file that the module was package in for the instructions. If the module did not come with instructions on how to remove it, you can either contact the manufacturer who created the module, or call Miva Merchant support.
