Optional Extensions

Welcome to our tutorial on optional extensions for your eCommerce.

  • From the Web Site menu, highlight eCommerce and choose Manage Extensions.
  • Find the extension you want to enable or disable in the list, and check the box next to it. Pay attention to the Extension Path, which will tell you where to find the extension in your eCommerce admin.
  • Click Enable or Disable.
  • In your eCommerce admin, choose System > Extensions > CatalogZoom settings.
  • Click Edit CatalogZoom default settings.
  • Click the > arrow next to the settings you would like to change to expand the options, then make individual changes as needed. We recommend leaving most settings at default.
  • When you're finished, click Save.
  • Follow the steps from CatalogZoom Settings and click Miscellaneous to open those options.
  • For Product option names associated with images, type the names for each option you would like to use, separated by commas.
  • Click Save.
  • Follow the steps to create your configurable product or another product with custom options. Add an image to the product for each option and click Save.
  • In the text field underneath the images, enter the option names that match the images.

  • In your eCommerce admin, choose System > Extensions > Catalog 360 Image settings.
  • Click Edit Catalog 360 Image default settings.
  • Click the > arrow next to the settings you would like to change to expand the options, then make individual changes as needed. We recommend leaving most settings at default.
  • When you're finished, click Save.
  • In your eCommerce admin, create and save the product you would like to add the images to.
  • When creating your images, the images should be named in the format "product-[vertical number]-[horizontal number]". For example, the first image for a shirt would be called something like "shirt-1-1.jpg". The second image in a horizontal (left/right) rotation would be called "shirt-1-2.jpg". To download an ZIP file with example images for a 360 product, click here.

    For most products, we recommend using a 360 degree horizontal (left/right) rotation. To create a 3D spin that rotates up/down as well as left/right, the product should be photographed in different vertical positions, two or more for each horizontal position. In the following example of a 12x4 spin, Number of images on X-axis = 12, Number of images on Y-axis = 4, and total number of images = 48:
  • After creating your images, edit the product and click the Catalog 360 Image tab.
  • Click Browse Files to find and select the images from your computer, then click Upload Files.
  • If you are using vertical (up/down) images for your product, check the box for Up/down and left/right spin, then enter values for Number of images on X-axis Number of images on Y-axis. If you are just using horizontal (left/right) images, those fields can be left alone.
  • When you're finished, click Save.
