1 The Catalog
The catalog at Republican Market is divided up into categories, each of which contain items.
The best place to start is the Category Index, which lists all the categories on offer, and a representative picture from that category.
1.2 Looking at Specific Categories
To look at a specific category of items, simply go to the Category Index and the click on a Category. You will then see all the items in that category (see 1.4).
To find all items with a specific word or phrase in either the name or the description of that item, you need to perform a Search.
Simply type in the word or words you'd like to search for into the text box on the Search page, and press the button. If you need to search for words in a specific case, just check the Case Sensitive checkbox.

When you move into a specific category, all the items in that category are displayed. You get a thumbnail picture of the product, it's original cost, and the exclusive Republican Market price! To get as close-up look of an item, just click the thumbnail picture! (See 1.5)
1.5 Viewing Items
When you view a specific item, you get to see a close-up picture and detailed description. Sometimes you will see a list of items we think will go well with the one you are viewing. This appears in a box called Also Consider.
1.5.1 Suggested Items
When other items are suggested they will appear in a box titled Also Consider. Each item name is a link to the page for that item so you can decide whether or not to add it to your basket independently.
1.5.2 Choosing a Specific Type of Item
Sometimes, an item will be available in more than one size, or color, or some other variation. If the item you are currently looking at has different variations, the choices will be displayed next to the Add To Basket button.
Choose the type of item you want before pressing the Add To Basket button. Some choices will affect the price of the item. For example, if you choose an XX-Large T-Shirt, the price of that item might increase by $2. Conversely, a color change to the same T-Shirt might decrease the price.
1.5.3 Adjusting the Quantity
Once you are happy with the type of item you are buying, you can add one or more to your basket. To alter the quantity, just change the number next to Quantity:.
1.5.4 Adding To Your Order
Once you are happy with the specifics of the item you are buying, just press the Add To Basket button. This is the green sqaure icon to the bottom-right of the View-Item page. This will add the specific item you requested in the quantity you requested to your basket.
If the item you are viewing is available at a discounted price, the discounts will be displayed to the right of the close-up picture.
There are many types of discounts available, but don't worry - they will always be displayed, and, if you qualify, you will automatically get the discounted price at the checkout.
Common discounts include: getting a specific amount of an item at a given price, or getting a reduced price on every item when you have a certain amount in your basket.
Discounts are also prioritized, so you will always get the most discount if more than one applies!
