Superstore V2.2 adds image zoom, back in stock notifications and a featured collection section
After much anticipation, we're beyond excited to announce that Superstore V2.2 is officially here and with it, new features that are specifically designed to increase sales for your business. Plain and simple. In this post, we’ll dive into the new changes, and how you can implement them in your own store.
Image zoom optionsWith added zoom options, customers can simply hover over the image to zoom in, which can be placed either over the main image or outside of it, depending on merchant preferences. Customers will also be able to click the main image to open it in a full-screen gallery view. Thumbnails are also available in the gallery view for faster switching. With Superstore V2.2, zoom options aren't limited to desktop, when on mobile customers can simply tap the main image to view the fullscreen gallery. Zoom options are of particular value to merchants whose products have multiple variations, such as color, pattern and feature add-ons.
ATC on mobileIn order to ensure your customers have a stellar mobile experience, merchants can now show add to cart and quick shop buttons on mobile pages, allowing for a quicker checkout process across devices. If adding to a cart, customers will be able to select options related to product variations (size, color, model, etc) prior to checkout.
Back in stock request form
With Superstore V2.2, customers have the ability to request an email notification for out of stock products/variants.
The back in stock notification form will appear in place of the product form when the selected variant is out of stock (inventory is tracked on Shopify and reaches a level of 0). To receive notifications, a shopper simply enters their email address and submits, which produces a success message. Upon submission, merchants will receive an email to their Shopify account email indicating the shopper is interested in a specific variant.It's important to note, that notifications are not sent automatically when the product is back in stock; merchants will need to complete the request manually.
Featured collection section
Customize how you show featured collections on your homepage and how many items are shown. Choose the number of products from the featured collection to show, ranging from 5-25 products, allowing you to showcase the products your customers are most interested in! In addition to creating a memorable visual element, you can also choose to add a call-to-action button that appears below your products, encouraging visitors to take action immediately.
With Superstore V2.2 merchants can choose to display feature collections in a slideshow or a grid format, allowing for greater design flexibility to showcase new products.
How to get Superstore V2.2
If you’ve already purchased Superstore, you can upgrade to the new version at no extra cost. If you’ve made code customizations outside the theme editor, you’ll need to follow our instructions for updating your theme. We recommend using the Theme Updater App, as it's the simplest way to ensure that your current store settings and layout remain the same.
