The Customize Content tab in the left navigation pane houses over 12 widgets. With simple drag-and-drop functionalities, you can design the home page of your app looks exactly how you want it to be.
Let’s get the basics right first.
On the left, you have the Widget list section that carries all the widgets you’ve picked out for your store currently. If you have picked a pre-built theme, this list will be populated automatically based on the them you selected. Click on the + button next to the Home Page title to add more widgets to your home screen.
You’ll see a pop-up consisting of all available widgets. We have 12 currently and we plan to add more soon.
Let's look at each of these widgets separately.
- Instagram Feed
You can dedicate a section of your home screen to display what you post on your Instagram account. Connecting your social media to your app is a great way to engage with your customers and keep them updated when you have new products or other announcements to make.
Log in to your Instagram to pair it with your app. Add a catchy title to this section to keep your shoppers hooked.
Feel free to use any of these examples:
- From the gram
- Follow us on Instagram
- A hashtag that you frequently use
2. Image Grid with Text
This widget is great for displaying collections of products with cornered image frames. Each tile displayed in the section can be a category of products that you wish to highlight. A lot of our customers use this to display collections.
See the icons over the image tiles? You can use those to rearrange collections, upload product/collection images, enter the redirect link when shoppers click on it, and delete it altogether, in that order.
3. Empty Space
Empty space not only creates harmony and balance to your design, it also leads the reader from one element to another. Spacing out your content adequately will keep your app simple and uncluttered and ensure your shoppers aren't overwhelmed with all the product images.
Vajro lets you pick the size and color of the empty space.
4. Product Grid
The product grid works like the image grid except that it comes without the text in the middle of the image. Your shoppers can scroll through the collections or products to pick a collection.
5. Product Slider
Select a collection of products that you want to feature as a slider that can be slid across by viewers to see all the images.
Just give the section a title, and pick a collection that you want to have featured, and you’re all good!
6. Circle Image Slider
The Circle Image Slider can be used to display products or collections with circular frames. It works just like the product slider in all other aspects.
7. Auto Slider Image
Similar to the circle slider image, but the Auto Slider moves on to other images automatically.
8. Banner Images
Announce sales, offers, new products and so much more with banner images!
9. Image Grid (Without Text)
Best suited for products from a single collection or category. You can customize and link each image to its product page.
Click on the third icon over the product images to link it to the respective product pages.
10. Slidable Banner Images
Feature multiple images, sales, offers and so much more with slidable banner images.
You can now add promotional videos, product videos, testimonials and so much more to your homescreen. The possibilities are endless! We only support MP4 and MOV formats, btw! So, just convert and upload, yeah?
12. Countdown Timer
Build anticipation for a product launch or a sale with a countdown timer.
You can set up the timer to go whenever you want, add a banner image and a redirect link to the page it needs to go to!
