# Ecommerce Components

You can build fully featured stores in Bootstrap Studio that can list products, let users maintain a shopping cart, enter payment details and checkout. Payments are deposited directly to your PayPal and/or Stripe accounts. This is done with the help of the Ecommerce components.

# Components

You can see the available components in the Ecommerce group, available in the Component panel:

Ecommerce Components

These components use the Reflow toolkit behind the scenes (a sister project by Bootstrap Studio's developers), and display mock (fake) data by default. You will need to connect your Reflow account, to see live data from your store. After you do so you will see all the available options that are presented below.

# Product

The Product component displays a product page with a name, media gallery, description and an Add to Cart button.

Product Component

Note

If you need to display multiple products, use the Product List component, instead of placing individual product components on your page.

# Available Options

You can configure the product and change the way it's rendered from the Options Panel. There are a number of customization options:

Product Options

# Product Options

  • Show XXX - toggle the product gallery, name, price, etc. You can show as much or as little information about the product as you need.
  • Cart URL - a URL to the page where your Shopping Cart is located. When Add to Cart is clicked, a Toast notification is shown to let users know that the product was successfully added to their cart. If you have set the Cart URL option, this notification includes a See Cart button that opens the Shopping Cart page.

# Data Source

  • Store - click the button to choose/change the Reflow Store. This is a design wide setting, so it will be applied to all ecommerce components in your project.
  • Product Type - choose what type of product the component displays:
    • Fixed - shows a specific product you choose by clicking Choose Product.
    • Dynamic - dynamically gets the product ID from the page URL and shows the product associated with it. You have to provide the name of the URL parameter that contains the ID, e.g. in https://example.com/product.html?product=111111 the parameter is product and the ID is 111111.
  • Product (available only if the product type is Fixed) - Click this button to choose which product from your store the component should display.
  • Refresh Data (available only if the product type is Fixed) - Click this button to fetch the newest data after you've made changes to the product on Reflow's website.

# Product List

The Product List component renders a collection of products in a list with optional pagination. You can filter the list to show only products from a specific category, change the ordering and select different layouts.

Product List Component

# Available Options

You can configure the Product List through the Options Panel. A number of customization options are available:

Product List Options

# Product List Options

  • Layout - choose the layout of the product list. Currently products can be displayed as either cards or list (default).
  • Order By - choose how the products are sorted. You can order them by name, date or price in both ascending and descending order.
  • Page - choose which page of results to show (defaults to 1).
  • Per page - choose how many products to show per page (defaults to 20).
  • Product Link - if this option is provided, each product in the list will be wrapped in a link that points to this URL. The URL supports {id} placeholders, which are replaced with the product ID (e.g. /product.html?product={id}). Set this URL to a page where a Product component resides, and set the Product to Dynamic so it takes its ID from the URL. This way you can display products dynamically (see how to build a store with this technique).
  • Show XXX - toggle the product image, name, price, etc. You can show as much or as little information about each product in the list as you need.

# Data Source

  • Store - click the button to choose/change the Reflow Store. This is a design wide setting, so it will be applied to all ecommerce components in your project.
  • Use Mock Data - when this setting is switched on, Bootstrap Studio will generate mock data for the component. This setting is only applied in the app (you won't see the mock data in the Browser Preview or when exporting).
  • Category - with this option you can limit the list to only show products from a specific category of your store.
  • Refresh Data - Click this button to fetch the newest data after you've made changes to a product in the list on Reflow's website.

# Add to Cart

The Add to Cart component renders a button which lets users add a specific product to their shopping cart. It can be useful if you wish to build an entirely custom product page, while only making use of Bootstrap Studio's add to cart and checkout functionality.

Add to Cart Component

# Available Options

You can configure the Add to Cart through the Options Panel. A number of customization options are available:

Add to Cart Options

# Add to Cart Options

  • Show XXX - toggle the variants dropdown, quantity widget, Add to Cart button.
  • Button Text - change the "Add to Cart" text to something else.
  • Cart URL - a URL to the page where your Shopping Cart is located. When Add to Cart is clicked, a Toast notification is shown to let users know that the product was successfully added to their cart. If you have set the Cart URL option, this notification includes a See Cart button that opens the Shopping Cart page.

# Data Source

  • Store - click the button to choose/change the Reflow Store. This is a design wide setting, so it will be applied to all ecommerce components in your project.
  • Use Mock Data - when this setting is switched on, Bootstrap Studio will use a mock product for the component. This is useful when testing how a variation dropdown would look like in your design. This setting is only applied in the app (you won't see the mock data in the Browser Preview or when exporting).
  • Product - click this button to choose which product from your store the component should display.
  • Refresh Data - click this button to fetch the newest data after you've made changes to the displayed product.

# Shopping Cart

The Shopping Cart component renders a fully functional shopping cart. It lets users change product quantities and remove products and finish their checkout. Payments are transferred to the linked PayPal/Stripe account and orders are recorded in Reflow's control panel.
