In Shopblocks, you can show special content on your product pages such as a promo videos or tabbed content.
Not every product will require these content blocks, so you only have to add them to the ones that do.
There are three different content blocks you can add to each product:
- Promo Text
- Video Carousel
- Tabbed Content
- Secondary Images
Here you can enter some text to highlight a certain aspect of this product.
This is where you can select a video or videos to display with your product. This is useful is you need to explain a certain part of the product, how it works, or how it was made. Both YouTube and Vimeo videos can be used here. Simply enter the URL of the video you want to display.
You must have permission from the content creator to show the video on your shop.
Keep in mind that this does not download the videos to your account, but instead links to them and playing them from either YouTube or Vimeo servers. If YouTube or Vimeo removes the video from their sites then you or your customers won’t be able to see it on your shop.
If you need to display a lot of text based content then sometimes standard paragraphs over other doesn’t work, this is where tabs are useful. You can display different types of information alongside each other without overwhelming your customer with rows and rows of text all at once.
This would be useful it you needed to display technical specifications, customer reviews, warranty and returns, deliveries, and a general overview. Having all this information is standard text blocks running down the page would be awkward for your customers to navigate, especially on mobile. But when this content is in tabs then it’s much easier to your customers to find what they are looking for.
Some websites like to have certain secondary images displayed outside of the product image area. Secondary Images will allow you to have other images specified to that product page, but appear on it's own block.
