    Hello,

    Can the same category table appear more than once on a page? I tried it and it doesn’t seem to allow this. But if there’s a way that it can be done, please let me know, thanks!

  • Hi,

    Can you elaborate on this a bit? What do you mean by “category table”? What do you want to get at the end? Do you want to add several product catalogs to the same page? If so, why?

    Thanks,

    You know, when you create a category, you can add it to a page as a grid, list or table. I have it added as a table on a page, but I want to be able to have the table appear more than once on that page because the page is kind of long, so I want it to appear more than once for added call to action.

    Got it, thank you.

    Unfortunately, it’s not possible to add product catalog to the same page twice. To create an additional call to action and to make sure visitors will see your products, you may want to add single product widgets. In the page editor, you can click “Add product” button and add as many products to the page as you like. You can also consider creating a custom table with “Add to bag” buttons in it. The add to bag buttons can be added to the page the same way, i.e. by clicking the “Add product” button in the editor.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks.

    Why do the “add to bag” buttons turn into “Buy Now” buttons when adding them this way?

    Hi there,

    Edward here, Ecwid Team.

    By default, the “Add to Bag” button is not displayed on the storefront page; you can only see it when you open a product page. So, in this case, the “Add to Bag” option in the settings of the single product widget basically means the ability to add a product to the bag directly on the storefront without opening the product page.

    A button responsible for adding a product to the bag on the storefront page is the “Buy now” button. So that’s why it’s displayed there.

    If you want to display single product widget without the “Buy Now” button, you can just untick the “Add to Bag” button in WordPress Admin Panel -> Pages -> Select a page -> Add Product -> Customize widget, see the screenshot — http://take.ms/Rni3L

    This way, the single product will look the way all products look like on the storefront page. Here’s the example without the “Buy now” button — http://take.ms/vsqas

    Moreover, you can easily alter a text of almost any label in Ecwid, including the “Buy now” button. Please refer to this article for the instruction — https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002823369-How-to-change-texts-in-my-store-

    Also, I want to thank you for pinpointing it, I see how it can be confusing when you add a single product widget and select the “Add to Bag” button but the “Buy now” button appears instead. I’ve passed this on to our product team, so they’ll consider replacing the “Add to Bag” button with the “Buy Now” button in the widget settings.

    I hope this information will help.

    Thanks Edward, I see how to change labels now.

    Another Question: You know on a table where you click “add to bag” and then the box pops up with the product? Well how can I get the individual popup box links for each product just in case I wanted to create my own custom table?

    Hi!

    Sorry for the delay.

    By default Ecwid popups do not have direct links. These popups are triggered by our internal mechanisms in the default product listing.

    I suggest taking a look at Ecwid API capabilities for achieving your goal. You can grab any product details from the database by means of a custom script that will be based on ‘Get Product’ requests. You will be able to arrange these details exactly the way you want them to appear on the page (e.g. in the popup). Please, review the documentation on Ecwid API here: https://developers.ecwid.com/api-documentation/products#get-a-product

    Thus, you will be able to build a custom product listing on your website. I need to pay your attention, that this solution will require programming skills. Before starting to develop the script, please take a look at Ecwid API playground: https://developers.ecwid.com/api-documentation/api-playground It allows to quickly learn Ecwid API and see it in action even before you start coding.

    If you need a professional help with such customization, you may want to hire a developer. In Ecwid, we offer a customization service on a paid basis. If you are interested in, please fill out this form: https://ecwidcom.typeform.com/to/vIlijv Our customization team will review your request and get back to you with the quote.

    Hope this will help. Please, let us know should you have further questions. Also, feel free to contact our support team directly here: https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/requests/new We’ll be glad to help.

    Hi there,

    This is Ecwid customer care team.

    Just wanted to update you regarding the following case:

    Also, I want to thank you for pinpointing it, I see how it can be confusing when you add a single product widget and select the “Add to Bag” button but the “Buy now” button appears instead. I’ve passed this on to our product team, so they’ll consider replacing the “Add to Bag” button with the “Buy Now” button in the widget settings.

    We have replaced “Add to bag button” with “Buy now button” in the single product widget settings. So it should not be confusing anymore.

    Thank you again for attracting our attention to this.
