Display featured items and categories on your Square Online site
In the site editor for Square Online, you can add sections to your webpages that feature certain items from your online store. Use one to bring attention to new or restocked merchandise, or any items you want to draw attention to.
Add a featured items or categories section
From your Square Online site editor, open the page you want to add featured items to. Select +Add > Section and choose from any of the following options:
Display items on your section
Note: Recommend additional items to customers by upgrading your Square Online subscription.
Once you choose an option, select Choose items in the editing panel to start adding items to your section. You can search and filter existing items from your site item catalogue, or add a new item and category to Square directly from the editor. Check the box next to each item you want to include, then select Save to see the selected items appear on your webpage.
If you’re using the standard Featured items section (i.e. not the ones for donations, menu items, etc.), you can display your items using any of the following options:
Custom selection: The section will display any items of your choosing.
Most popular: The section will display up to 10 of your most popular items automatically.
Recently viewed: The section will display your customers’ recently viewed items automatically.
Recently ordered: The section will display your customers’ recently ordered items automatically.
Recommended: The section will display recommended items to your customers based on their previous orders (upgrade required).
Display categories on your section
You can also choose a few categories to feature prominently in your online store. To customise your featured categories, manage your section using the following options:
Choose how your category images will display
Choose the number of columns category images are displayed in
Choose the column spacing
Toggle on Make items full-width to highlight an item that represents the featured category or a new arrival
Customise your section
Depending on which layout you’re using, you’ll see various customisation options. Select any item from the list in the editing panel to see its location on the section and make changes. You can also toggle off some of the options such as the section title, or add and remove items. If you’re displaying a custom selection of items, you can rearrange them within the section by selecting and dragging an item up or down in the editing panel.
Note: Masonry style layouts require six items. If you have fewer than six items, select one of the other layouts instead.
Review all of your options in the editing panel to see what you can customise for the specific section type you’ve chosen. Learn more about designing and customising your Square Online site.
