How can I remove decimals from product prices?
- Go to Ecwid Control Panel → Settings → General → Regional Settings.
- Enable Hide trailing zeros in fractional part:
This removes all remainders from your prices if they show a zero – $40.00 will show as $40. If a product price or an order total has a decimal that is not zero (e.g. $40.95), we will show the decimal to reflect the exact cost for customers.
Please note, the fractional part is removed automatically if your currency doesn't use decimals. For example, prices will never include decimals if the currency is set to the Japanese Yen.
Will Ecwid notify me when my products are low or out of stock?
Yes, Ecwid will send you a message about the low stock of a product if you enable this option for the product. Learn more about how to set up inventory tracking of a product.
Can I set the weight for ounces?
Yes, to do this, you convert the weight in ounces to a decimal ratio for pounds. Each ounce is 0.06 pounds. Be sure to use a zero before the decimal.
