How to Configure Widgets

On the Home page of your Commerce Connector account click on the module “Integrations” and proceed to select “WTB Widget” or “Store Finder

  1. Click on the top right corner “Create New Widget” Select if you want to configure an inline widget (no CTA) or a pop-up widget (CTA button) and choose the settings that fit to your market’s needs:

    - CTA: no button, one button, two buttons

    - Channels: online / local (dependent on the license booked)

    - Possibility of using one or both channels Display both channels separately in two widgets or together in one widget

  2. By using your mouse to go over the titles of the available features to be activated for the Widget, a question mark “?” will appear along with some additional information about that feature:

    - Color schemes, logos, product variant drop-down, online shop settings, filters, local store
    search radius and more… Use the configurator to adjust your widget(s)

    - The smart button “Smart ‘No results’ behavior” is an option that when “Active” will hide unavailable/out of stock results for Buy Now Online. The Smart Channel for Online and In Store gives the possibility of showing the In Store results while hiding the Online Channel tab if there is no stock available

    - Sticky button constantly displays “Buy Now” as the brand’s customer scroll up and down through the website page, while the default button is locked to its designated area

Please keep in mind that the to add product title and photo our support team needs to be contacted to enable this feature, and photos have lthe image link (including protocol https). Also, integration testing should be done in a test environment by the brand/agency
