Adding more information to a product that displays in the storefront

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have set up a storefront to sell paintings. Each item only has one available, as I am selling original artwork. In the main storefront (page that displays all products (paintings)), the title of each painting is shown under the photo of the painting. I see an option to toggle on or off the price of the painting, which I do not want to display in the storefront - only on the individual product page.

I WOULD like to display the painting size and whether or not it is sold on this main storefront page, so that customers can see the paintings as a gallery but do not have to waste time clicking on a painting if it is sold. Is there a way to show information about individual products on the storefront page other than price?

Currently, I have implemented a workaround by allowing the thumbnail posted to the storefront to have text overlay that reads SOLD, but I do not like the look of this. And it forces me to add a photo with text overlay to every product page once it's sold.

Hi Ashley

In answer to the first part of you question, there are already some 'SOLD OUT' labels on your Product List Page (PLP). The problem is their colour 🙂. They are currently set to white on a light background. Here's a screenshot where I highlighted the label to make it visible:

You should be able to customise the colour of your 'Status' labels in the Site Styles panel as shown here:

For more details, see the Squarespace guide Changing colors.

Regarding the second part of your question, Squarespace does not include a way to include additional information about products on the Product List Page (PLP). You can show the Product Title, Product Status (eg Sold Out), and the Price.

If you want to include any additional information you'll need some custom code to do this. For example, you could edit each "product" and add a tag for the dimensions. Some code could then look for this tag and display the dimensions in the format that you choose. You may want a developer to help you with this but @creedon recently posted a very similar solution here for adding product information in this way that may be helpful.
