How to Use the Product Feature

The Product Feature lets you instantly display and highlight a certain product on your website page, allowing your viewers to buy products without having to go to your actual Sitebeat Store.

Note: The Store option is only available for the Sitebeat eCommerce plan and will not appear on all other Sitebeat plans. Suppose you want to set up an online store with complete SSL protection as well as easy setup and monitoring of products and orders. In that case, you will need to upgrade your current Sitebeat plan or purchase a new Sitebeat eCommerce plan.

Add the Product Feature on your website page and customise it to conveniently display any Product or On Sale item, using the steps below:

  1. Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
  2. Under My Sites, click the Edit Site option on the website that you wish to manage.
  3. Note: If you want to edit a new site, you have to unpublish the current website and make your new site as your primary website.

    Under My Sites, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon on the top-right corner of the website to unpublish the current site. Click Unpublish Site, and then click Yes, Unpublish to confirm.

    Under My Domains, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon of the website that you want to replace as your primary website, then click Replace Primary. In the pop-up window, select the domain of the new website in the New Primary Domain list, then click Replace Primary. You can also click the Domains tab under My Sites to perform the necessary steps mentioned.

    You can now edit the new site that you wish to manage.

  4. On the Sitebeat Editor, click Build from the left-side menu, and then click Online Store.
    Note: If you're using Sitebeat eCommerce but can't find the Online Store option, you may follow these steps first to get started with your Store:

    1. Click Store from the left-side menu on your Sitebeat Editor.
    2. Click on the Get Started button, then wait a few seconds for the Sitebeat Editor to add a Store page and Shopping Cart icon to your website.

    Once done, you can go back to Build. The Online Store option will now be available.
  5. Drag and drop the Product icon onto an available placeholder on your website. Hover your mouse pointer over it, and then click Edit.
  6. Under the Layout tab, customise the following using their respective drop-down lists:
    Show Product Select the specific product that you want to feature on your website.
    SKU SKU or Stock Keeping Unit, is the unique number assigned to each product for Inventory Management.

    Set whether you want to Show or Hide your products's SKU.
  7. On the same pop-up box, click on the Settings tab to customise the following options:
    Button Label Hover your mouse pointer over the field under Button Label, click Edit, and then replace the text with your desired label.
    Image Aspect Ratio Select the Aspect Ratio to use for displaying your products's image.
    On-Click Set the action to take once visitors click on your featured product.
