Default Large number of categories

Hi,

Does anyone know of an ecwid store with a large number of categories? Some of our categories have over 100 subcategories and I'm curious how other people handle this.

TIA

What do you mean by handle this? Ecwid is able to handle a large # of categories. You can import your Categories via CSV file.

Sorry for being unclear. I'm more interested in the presentation. Our store is based on wix and so the integration is via an iframe. If a category has a large number of subcategories, then we have a rather unattractive second scroll bar in the iframe. I wonder how others confront this issue.

Thanks.

Ecwid is totally capable both of handling a large number of categories and of tailoring the display to your needs so you can always adjust the display to conform with your site.

One of the most advanced Ecwid-based shops at http://naturalbodyinc.com features custom-built category menus that display multiples of available product categories in a compact and appealing view. You can use one of hundreds of dynamic menu scripts along with our Product API to get the lists of the directories dynamically and build the menu that could fit the frame on your Wix-based site without scrolling.

The Prodcust API in Ecwid v.7.0 supports JSONP format and hence can be requested from JavaScript. To get a JSONP response from API you need to include 'callback' parameter in your request.

If you need a qualified help in building such menu, our colleagues from Qualiteam can offer their development services for you. Contact sales@qtmsoft.com if you are interested.
