Introduction to Add-ons

 

This article will explain to you what an add-on is, how you can install one, and go over the entire add-on library in EcomSolid.

 

What Are Add-ons?

In EcomSolid, add-ons are extensions that can be installed for extra functionalities or to further customize a section. The library of add-ons has a wide range of selections and is constantly updated with new features that are not yet available in Shopify. You can display quantity discounts to boost sales, showcase real reviews from customers from your favorite third-party apps, and even enable the sticky Add To Cart and slide-out cart drawer by add-ons.

 

Some add-ons are only available in the Growth plan, indicated by the “PRO” tag. See our comparison table for more details.

 

 

How to install an add-on

Step 1: Head over to the EcomSolid Dashboard and enter the Editor.

 

 

Step 2: Open the Library and switch to the “Add-ons” tab.

 

 

Step 3: Search for the add-on you need or browse through the library. 

 

Step 4: When you find the add-on, hit “Add” to install the add-on

 

Depending on the specific add-on, it can be relocated using the target icon

 

Add-on Categories

There are two types of add-ons: Page Add-ons and Global Add-ons.

  • Page Add-ons works only on the selected page.
  • Global Add-ons works on all pages of your store.
You can move any add-ons from page to global, and vice-versa.

Add-ons are divided into several categories based on their functionality: Sales and conversion, Countdown, Trust and security, Third party, and Default.
