Review settings

Go through the settings panel in your instance to make sure that the settings all match up with your initial requests. You will also need to set up your accounting codes, tax rates, and any other system charges or discounts/promotions. You can update most settings directly or reach out to us if you need help with anything. 

The Settings help docs explain how everything works.

Add your site, unit types, and units

With your settings in place, you are now ready to start adding your facility information, such as the site, unit types, units, and more.

The first step is to create your site. Learn how to create site in our help article: Creating a site.

After creating your first site you will be prompted to set up your unit types and units.

If you are using a supported payment gateway, you'll receive more info from us on how to get this setup & integrated. If you haven't, reach out to us.

Testing your payment gateway

Once you have connected your payment gateway, you should do a test rental to ensure everything is set correctly.

You can move yourself into a unit from the customer portal or the management portal. For information on how to do this please see our help documents:

The payments made can be checked in the corresponding payment gateway dashboard against the invoices in Storeganise. It's advised to reduce the rental price and deposit of the unit before moving yourself in to minimize charges. Any refund will need to be processed through the payment gateway, not Storeganise.
