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 CSS code:
    
    td.ecwid-productBrowser-productsTable-buy,   
    .ecwid .ecwid-btn--addToBag,   
    div.ecwid-productBrowser-details-qtyPanel {    
    display:none;  
    } 

 

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