Size Buttons

New eCommerce Features

  • Use the Title field to name the category (“Size” usually works best).
  • Then click on the Add Selection button to add the different sizes.
  • The letter you enter in the Button field will be displayed on the product page. The text you enter on the Tooltip field will be displayed when rolling over the button.
  • If different sizes have different costs, you can add a Surcharge that will automatically be calculated into the total price!
  • If you wish to delete a size, just click on the trash icon to the right of it.
  • To confirm, click OK on the bottom right.

Color Buttons

New eCommerce Features

  • Enter the name of your color category in the Title field (“Colors”, “Shades”, etc.).
  • Click on the Add Selection button to add the different colors.
  • To choose the colors you wish to display, click on the colored box on the left (default black) and select from the palette.
  • In the Tooltip field, enter the color discription or name, which will appear when rolling over the color button.
  • Again, you can choose to price each color differently and add a Surcharge that will automatically be calculated into the total price!
  • To delete, click on the trash icon to the right of the color.
  • And don’t forget to click OK to confirm!

Drop Down Menu

New eCommerce Features

This feature is most useful for purposes of choosing shipment options, but you can also use it for other purposes.

  • First choose the title of the menu (e.g. “Shipment”) and write it in the Title field.
  • Then click on the Add Selection button to add the variables of your menu.
  • If the shipment destinations have different prices, use the Surcharge field to add the special shipment costs that will be automatically calculated in the total sum.
  • To delete, click on the trash icon to the right of the variable.
  • To confirm, click OK on the bottom right.

Message Box

New eCommerce Features

Using the Message Box, your clients can send you special instructions or requests regarding their order.

  • Write the headline of the Message Box in the Title field.
  • You can choose to mark the Message Box as mandatory, thus requiring your clients to leave a message in order to complete the purchase.
  • To confirm and continue, click OK on the bottom right.

The result? A customized product page, easy for you to create and fun  for your clients use!
