Overview

The new "Shopify App Block" element makes adding and integrating widgets from third-party apps to your "Full Customization" Product pages a breeze!

Now you can easily integrate any Shopify app that utilizes app blocks onto your product page, even if it’s not one we've built an integration for. No custom coding required.

See the instructions below for the details about how to use this new element to take your product page design and functionality to the next level!

Find and select the "Shopify App Block" element from the Integrations category of page elements:

The element will be added to your page in the location chosen. Next, click on the "Open Shopify Editor" button in the sidebar:

πŸ“You must publish the product page first before you can add and edit the app block in the Theme Editor.

A new tab will open where your Shopify Theme Editor will be displayed and the current product page template. Under the Template section, click "Add block":

Important Notes

  • The Shopify App Block element can only be added to "Full Customization" product page templates that use the JSON file type. If you're not sure which file type is being used for your Zipify Pages product page template, navigate to Sales channels > Online Store > Themes > Edit code and check the "Templates" folder to see the type of file. It will either be product.zipifypages-xyz.json or product.zipifypages-xyz.liquid
    ​

  • The third-party app widget will only render on the published page and not within the Zipify Pages builder directly. If an app widget requires their app embed be enabled, check the "App Embeds" section of the Shopify Theme Editor to enable it.
    ​

  • To add additional Shopify App Block elements to your page, click the "Update" button in the Zipify Pages builder each time a new one is added. Then navigate to the Theme Editor via the button in the sidebar to add the additional third-party app widget.
    ​
    ​For example: Add the "Shopify App Block" element ➑ Click the "Update" button in the builder ➑ Click the "Open Shopify Editor" button in the sidebar to add the new widget via the Theme Editor.
