Over the last year, many brick and mortar retailers have learned the importance of having an online presence. Whether that’s selling online, or simply deciding to build a website. Whilst having an online presence is important, keeping a product catalogue up to date can be a time consuming task for busy retailers.
To make it as easy as possible for you to display your up to date products on your site, we’ve added the option to embed a product search widget to your website. The search widget is available from today, is completely free, and will allow shoppers to search your live stock without any additional effort from you.
How does it work?
The search widget is a simple search tool that you can add to any place within your website. When a shopper searches for a product, they will be directed to your Google See What's In Store to search your live product catalogue. From there, the shopper can contact you or get directions to your shop to purchase the item.
Here's how to add it:
- Sign into your MyShop account
- Go to the Channels section and click Get started in the ‘Website search widget’ section
- Copy the code and paste it within your website HTML, preferably on the home page. If you're not sure how to do this, there's also a button to email the embed code to your website developer.
If you have any questions or need any support getting your Search Widget embedded to your website, please get in touch with our team and we will be happy to help on firstname.lastname@example.org
