Hi,

I'm using Squarespace for my site (blueriderdesign.studio).  I want to add options (size and / or materials) for each piece along with a purchase button.  However, I don't like the Squarespace templates / their 'store' pages.  I'd rather use some version of what I have now.  Would Shopify be able able to do what I want?  

The site still needs some cleaning up, etc.  However, I'm close to having the final look I want on the pieces page and the individual pieces section.  Example: https://blueriderdesign.studio/pieces/project-one-27etg-th48n.  I want to keep this format, more or less.  The store looks too standard for my branding.

 

cheers,

You don't need to use the fixed format product pages to display your products. Instead, you can add the size and materials options and purchase button directly to the page that you linked above!

However, you will need to create a Store page for administrative purposes so that you can create 'products' to be sold, assign them prices and so on.

First create a Store page, if one doesn't already exist. You will need this for administrative purposes so that you can create 'products' to be sold, assign them prices and so on.

Next, add a product (the Walnut Coffee Table?). Add some basic information about the product (title, price, image, variant options) so that you can save your first product. 

Once you've added your first product, go to the page for the individual piece that you created yourself and edit it. Add a Product Block wherever you want the purchase button to appear. You can uncheck all the display options that you don't need, so that only the [accurate] price, variant options and purchase button are shown.

However, Squarespace are launching new product page designs today, so perhaps one of these will better meet your needs?
