Products can take a while to appear. We've seen them appear almost immediately, but it can take a couple of hours. Shopify is a busy product, and sometimes we just need to wait our turn!

You shouldn't need to log into our site again. Shopify should send you emails as products are sold, and you can use your existing site as to process them.
