What You Need:

WP eStore Custom Shopping Cart Grid Display Steps

What you will achieve. 

  • Create a Grid Display of the products in a category .
  • Clicking on a product it will take you to a landing or product page.
  • In the landing or product page you can have either option, a Buy Now button or an Add To Cart button.

Step 1 ) Go to WP eStore -> Add/Edit Products and create your new products. See image below.

  • For this tutorial I created three twitter products


Step 1-a ) The following image allows you to add Product Description and a product Thumbnail Image URL.


Step 1-b ) The following image allows you to Add a Category if you don’t already have one.

For this tutorial I created a Twitter category.


Step 1-c ) The following image shows you the category twitter created above checked and the custom Button Image “Read more” URL added .

(Your image might be different depending on your products and destination URL)


Step 1-d ) The following image allows you to click on Save Product button or Delete Product link. (Remember to save your product once you have completed the setup)


Step 2 ) We are going to add the following shortcode to a post or page to display our shopping cart. See image below.

  • id = 1 this is the category id number.
  • show_price = 0 this will stop the price from showing on the item.
  • style = 5 this is the template we are using.

The following URL Stylish Product Display Options For WP eStore has more templates for you to choose.

[ wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=2 show_price=0 style=5]


Step 3 ) The following image shows you the final results. Now you have your products displayed in a grid format using the above settings. You have your product image displayed, the title is displayed, the description is displayed and a custom button “Read more”

Note: The Read more button will take you to the landing or product page.


Step 4 ) In your landing or product page you will add the custom Buy Now button or Add To Cart button. See image below.

Notice: I have added a <div align=”center”>[shortcode goes here]</div> HTML container tag. This will align the image in the center of the landing or product page.

Remember: Your id number might be different. This is the product id number and is unique to each product.

I hope the above helps you to create your custom products grid display.
