Turn your online store into a catalog

This approach allows to turn your online store into a product catalog, i.e. to show products without actual checkout, perform these steps:

  • Disable all payment and shipping methods.
  • Make sure you don't have the minicart widget installed. If you do, you need to remove it.
  • Disable [Buy Now] buttons: in your Ecwid Control Panel > Settings > General > Cart uncheck 'Show "Buy now" buttons on products list pages'
  • Hide the Add to Cart buttons and the "Qty" fields using this the CSS code below.

The code you need depends on the page version you have.

If you have a new version of the product details page it looks like this:

In this case use this code:

.details-product-purchase__qty,
.details-product-purchase__controls {
display: none;
}

If you have an older version of the product details page, it looks like this:

old_PD.png

In this case you this code:

.ecwid-productBrowser-details-qtyPanel,
.ecwid .ecwid-btn--addToBag {
display: none;
}
If you wish to enable the new look of the product details page, you can do it in your Ecwid Control Panel → Settings → What's New. Find Activate New Details page and switch it to Enabled.

Then hide the "Sign in" link: How to remove the "Sign In" link
