I would like to know how to integrate my Ecwid store to Wix?
Hi this is Daniella from Daniella.io and today I’m going to show you how to integrate your Ecwid store to your Wix website. So, I’m in my Wix backend, and all I’m going to do is go to the app market here, and search for Ecwid. Click on add to site > Add app > and then hit OK. It is going to load Ecwid’s default products. Click anywhere on Ecwid’s demo products, and click on Settings.
If you already have an account click here. I already have an account But if you you don’t have an account you can sign up right here. Click on “Connect your store” and if you’re sort is already open, Wix will automatically connect your store. And there you go your store is now in Wix and there’s a new tab that appeared at the top of the screen. So you can edit your store’s appearance by clicking on Settings, and then under the design tab you have a whole bunch of options.
Be careful to scroll down all the way this is a little sticky here but if you scroll all the way down you have advanced settings that are available also. So we are just going to scroll up and have a quick look at this. You can add the mini cart widget to your website. You can also add the search widget if you want it just click here and then choose the page you want to add it to.
You also have the ability to change the colors of your website right here which is really useful instead of going into your store’s backend and changing your CSS you can do it right here so if you want to change the background of your store to purple you just click on the color hit OK and everything will change automatically which is really useful. I don’t recommend purple and for the background of your store… There. You can also make it transparent by you can change the text colors buttons anyway there’s a lot of options here you can also change the number of categories that are shown here. Right now is that for as you can see the only two.
Ecwid will optimize over here for your categories and for your products also. So for example if you say that you could have for example five categories across, and there is actually only room for four, Ecwid will show four. The reason that there might not be enough room is because your titles are too long or your images are too wide… Ecwid will optimize the way the images are shown so that your store looks clean. So if you put six and only room for four they don’t show four instead, but if you change your titles and make them shorter, and there’s room for five then it’ll show five or six, depending on how much you put here. This one concerns categories, and then This one concerns products depending on the view that you choose, so in a gridview you’ll have five by five it’ll list view you would have all the way down the page 99 and your table view how many rows that you can have.
So it is as easy as that to set up your store. If you want to add HTML code for example you have horizontal categories or something you could do that within he advanced settings and you can choose what your default view is also so for example I chose the grid view and the default category I would want to show my my store homepage when people come on my page. But if I wanted them just to see the cell phone category I could choose it here. So that’s it. You could add your store as easily as that to a Wix website. I hope this video tutorial was useful. If you have any questions just post them in the comments.
