Next / Previous product navigation links
Ecwid now displays special Previous / Next Product links on the product details page, so your customers can browse your items quickly, efficiently and more conveniently.
Prior to this new feature, if a customer wanted to browse all items in a specific category, he/she would need to open a product details page, then go back to the category level, then open the next product and so on. This was not ideal and not the way it should be. That’s why we added these links, so now your customers can easily press the Next product link and the next product is loaded instantly.
This feature hides a lot of great changes and improvements under the hood. We wanted to create the fastest and wowest experience as possible, so we implemented a complex combination of product caching and products
But this is not all. If you’re a keyboard ninja and love keyboard shortcuts, you can use them to browse your catalog. Use Ctrl + → and Ctrl + ← to browse products and Ctrl + ↑ to go one level up.
As one of our users who tested this feature, said: Ah that is really awesome… I was just messing with it in the test store. It’s kind of addicting, getting you to click through the whole catalog.
Your customers will view more items and spend more time on your site, which will lead to more sales for you.
These Next / Previous links are new elements on the product details page, so if you use a
- We’re constantly working on improving the performance and speed of all Ecwid stores. We strongly believe that fast page loading is a big advantage and leads to more sales. As a result of our internal changes the average speed of Ecwid response was improved by 15%.
- We’ve also improved the order search in the control panel. As many of you probably know already, Ecwid provides a unified field to search for all order values. It’s very convenient not to think of what field to fill in and just enter the search string in one field and find the specific order for whatever you search for: customer name, email, purchased products or anything else. It works great, however as soon as the number of orders grows in a store, the performance begins to suffer — too far from our standards. That’s why our engineers revamped the order search completely. Now Ecwid uses a separate search server to perform such tasks. So even if you have thousands of orders (we wish for you to have them), the search will be extremely fast and accurate. As a neat addition to this feature, it is now possible to search by the Affiliate ID order field as well. This feature will be automatically enabled for all merchants who have more than 100 orders a few hours after v10.3 release.
Feel free to use and enjoy these new features. Our team is already working on the next major version, which will include a completely revamped shipping module, new social sharing buttons and many more important new features.
