Website World Support Desk Holiday Hours

Our team are taking a well earned break over the summer holidays. 

Our support desk will be closed from 4pm on Friday 24th December and will reopen Monday 10th January at 9am.

Phone support will not be available, with email support for emergencies only during this time.

We want to thank you all for your support throughout the year and we wish you and your family all the best for 2022.

What's On Your 2021 Christmas Shopping List?

One of the greatest things about being an eCommerce platform provider is we get to see all of the amazing products our merchants sell. Recently some of the members of our Website World Facebook Group shared their gift recommendations with us. We've put them all together in this Christmas shopping list.

See what's on the list here.

Organising Your Products Into Categories

In October when we launched Our Market, we explained how to add your products into one or more categories. It's been great to see many people have taken the best advantage of this free promotion of their products by doing so.

We thought it was timely to look at how to go about organising products into categories on your own website too. 

Well organised product categories can provide you with multiple benefits, including:

  • intuitive shopping experience on an easy to navigate website
  • improved customer experiences, which lead to happier customers who are more likely to shop again
  • increased sales as customers can find exactly what they want
  • better SEO

In this article we walk you through how to create product categories and add individual products into them.

Site of the Month

Caz Dezigns is an eCommerce store which also offers in-house workshops. Their website contains a great example of the Event List and Calendar feature found in the CMS. This feature allows visitors to your site to see what events, workshops or other bookings they can make in both a calendar format and in a list, where more detail of each event is available.

You can view this feature on the Caz Dezigns site here.
