Adding product description in your Ecwid store

Last updated

Product description is usually used to add information about product, emphasize its advantages, list its characteristics or to show products features. You can also add videos, images and animated elements that will help you show your product in a more favourable way.

To make the process of formatting product description simple, we have a text editor for the Description field. It allows you to add texts and format them like in the text editor that you use everyday. Using it you can make paragraphs, add images, change colors, sizes and fonts of the text, etc. In other words, you don't need to know HTML coding for creating descriptions with styles you want.
