About Product Item

Product item is a section that includes multiple sections/elements related to the product grid(s) design in your product list. This will help you optimize your Collection/Search page look and increase your chance of converting visitors to buyers. 

Settings for Product Item are reused for other features such as Recommendation, Merchandising, or any other features that appear as Product items on App Blocks.

Included in Product Item, we have two others sections:

Styling configuration

  • (Optional) Layout Library

If you'd like to save time from having to design your Product items manually, you can choose our pre-designed layout for your Collection header.

    • Select Layout library on the right panel > Switch to Product Item tab.

      From the Main Layout drop down menu, there are 3 options for you to select:

      • Product item 1: provides pre-designed sub-layouts that you can choose for your product items
      • Product item 2: provides pre-designed sub-layouts that you can choose for your product items
      • Match with your current theme (theme name): your product item layout will be designed to match your theme when you just installed it.

Match your current theme option is only available if you are editing on one of our V3's supported themes. Simply select it and click Change layout to get your current theme's design.

    • If Product Item 1/Product item 2 is selected, choose one of the sub-layout > Change layout.


💡 When you use the sub-layout of the Layout Library, it will return foundations such as the font family, the font size, etc... in App Admin (the editor) will take the value Null (equivalent to inherit value of CSS) to inherit the original theme value being installed. You can change it by select a new value.

The font's values are displaying blank (null) when the sub-layout from Layout Library is in use.

  • On the right panel, you will see
    • Border layout
      • No Border
      • Border No Padding
      • Border No Padding Image
      • Border Has Padding

  • Color: You can change Background color, Background color when hover, Border color and Border color when hover.
