Custom Product Page Layouts

Cart66 comes with a custom post type for products. The Cart66 Product post type serves a couple of purposes both for presentation and some behind the scenes stuff. By default, the product pages are presented with an image gallery in the top left, the Add to Cart button in the top right, and the page content below. This provides a really nice, clean layout for your product pages without requiring any additional plugins or coding. Sometimes, however, you want to layout the page yourself. We just released a new feature to make Cart66 product pages even more flexible. You can now choose the default layout that shows the built-in image gallery and product form, or you can turn all that off and lay everything out exactly like you want it. Let’s take a close look.

Whatever the reason, it’s nice to be able to send customized information to your customer based on what product they just bought from you. Here’s a quick demonstration of how to include product specific content in your email receipts using Cart66.
