Catalogs have gotten a complete makeover to offer a ton of customization and new features.

  • Customize layout and styling
  • Choose attributes to use for filters, sorting and search
  • Header and Footer can be disabled for embedding on external sites
  • Improved checkout experience
  • Export PDF with custom template
  • Way, way nicer looking πŸ‘Œ

Release Note

We hope you enjoy this first version of customizable Catalogs! The bulk of this release was making sure a lot of things under the hood were optimized and that we could properly migrate all your existing catalogs to the new designers.

This means that you may not see all the fun stuff we had planned/discussed or the full range of customization you might have expected. This also means that your existing catalogs are ready for you to update and use 😊.

But fear not! This is not the end. Now that we've laid the groundwork, we'll be able to add and improve a lot more going forward. Thank you so much to everyone who took their time to share feedback πŸ’–, we always love to hear from our clients to make our product better than ever.

Let us know what you think!
