Adding product descriptions in your Ecwid store

Product descriptions are usually used to add information about a product, emphasize its advantages, list its characteristics, or highlight products features. You may also use videos, images, and animated elements that help promote your product.

To simplify formatting, we provide a text editor for the Description field. You can make paragraphs, add images, and change the text (color, size, and font).

You can change the font family, color, and size of all texts in the Ecwid store using CSS codes. Check this guide: Customizing fonts in your Ecwid store.
If your Ecwid store is added to a Wix website, change the fonts in the Ecwid app settings.
