How do I make my photos shoppable?

To get started with SnapWidget Shoppable, make sure you’ve already created at least 1 Pro widget. These are available to all Lite, Pro and Developer plan subscribers.

On the Shoppable setup page, you can select the widget you’d like to edit from the dropdown. You can then click on a product or item in any of the photos to add a link and description.

Now enter a product URL and description. This should be a URL to your product page for the selected product where your visitor can buy the item.

The respective photo now shows a link where the Shoppable hotspot has been added.

Once you’ve added links to all the images you’d like to make Shoppable, you need to update the widget to open the photos in a Shoppable lightbox. To do this, visit your dashboard and select the widget you’ve just edited.

Go to the Advanced tab of your widget settings and set the Photo Link option to Shoppable (Lightbox).

You can also change the text that appears when your mouse hovers over the item using the Shoppable links. The default is 'Shop This'.

Update your widget and replace the code snippet on your website with the new one. Your widget is now Shoppable!

When a visitor hovers over a photo in your widget that has Shoppable links, the widget indicates that they can purchase the item(s) in this photo.

When clicked the photo opens in a lightbox listing all the Shoppable items featured in the photo. This makes it easy for your visitors to go directly to the product page for each item.
