Hi everyone,
i'm looking to incorporate 360-degree product rotation functionality into my squarespace website. I want to allow visitors to view my products from different angles by dragging or using a slider control. I've seen this feature on other websites and would like to implement it on my own site.
Could someone please guide me on how i can achieve this effect using squarespace? Are there any specific plugins or custom code that i need to use? Any step-by-step instructions or recommended resources would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help!

David

PS: In site URL i included a product where the rotation works but is implemented in kind of not engaging way.

You will probably want to use a service to host, there are many out there, and then embed that onto one of your product pages. You probably won't be able to have the interactive 360 in the main gallery carousel, but it can go anywhere in the additional info section of the product item.

To add a 360-degree product rotation feature to your Squarespace website, you can utilize third-party plugins or custom code. Here's a general approach using a plugin:

  1. Choose a 360-Degree Product Viewer Plugin: Look for a suitable plugin or service that provides a 360-degree product rotation feature. One popular option is the Sirv 360 Viewer, which integrates well with Squarespace. Alternatively, you can explore other plugins or services that offer similar functionality.

  2. Create an Account and Upload Your Product Images: Sign up for an account with the chosen plugin/service and upload your product images. Typically, you'll need a set of images taken from different angles to create a smooth rotation effect.

  3. Generate the Embed Code: Once your images are uploaded, the plugin will provide you with an embed code or a snippet of JavaScript that you can insert into your Squarespace website.

  4. Add the Embed Code to Squarespace: Log in to your Squarespace account and navigate to the page where you want to display the 360-degree product rotation. Depending on your Squarespace template, you can add the embed code using the Code Block or Markdown Block.

    a. Code Block: Drag and drop a Code Block onto your page, then paste the embed code provided by the plugin into the block. Save the changes.

    b. Markdown Block: Drag and drop a Markdown Block onto your page, then paste the embed code within the Markdown editor. Save the changes.

  5. Preview and Publish: Preview your Squarespace page to ensure the 360-degree product rotation is working correctly. Make any necessary adjustments, and once you're satisfied, publish the page to make it live on your website.

It's important to note that the specific steps and options may vary depending on the plugin or service you choose. Make sure to review the documentation or support resources provided by the plugin/service for detailed instructions on setting up the 360-degree product rotation feature.

Remember to test the functionality on different devices and browsers to ensure compatibility and a smooth user experience.
