More about me
One of the most frequently asked questions I get about Showit is Can you sell digital products on Showit? and the answer is YES!
In this blog post, I am diving into Showit E-commerce and giving you a step-by-step tutorial on how to connect a Shopify store to a Showit website.
No, Showit does not have its own built-in e-commerce platform, but it does integrate with e-commerce platforms and can utilize other checkout platforms.
I personally sell my Showit website templates, courses, and services on my Showit website with ThriveCart as my checkout platform. You can also link your buttons to any other checkout software like Send Owl, Sam Cart, Teachable, ConvertKit Commerce, and so on.
You can also connect an e-commerce platform like WooCommerce or Shopify to Showit.
The most well-known WordPress shopping cart plugin is WooCommerce, which is free in its most basic version.
Showit users who are on the Advanced Blog subscription can use this WordPress based shop. You can also easily migrate an existing WooCommerce site over to Showit.

Shopify has a Starter plan (formerly called Shopify Lite) that allows you to place your Shopify buttons on your Showit website using embed codes.
When a user clicks on one of your buttons to purchase, a separate, secure window will pop up from Shopify where they can check out.
This is such a great option for those who sell multiple digital or physical products. You get a strategic and beautiful website with Showit combined with the powerful e-commerce capabilities of Shopify.
I have helped many clients connect their sites to Shopify and it is a simple process once you know how, so let’s jump into this Showit e-commerce tutorial.
Step 1: Login into your Shopify store account and on the left-hand side click the “Buy Button” link. A box will appear. From there, click the “Create a Buy Button” button.
Step 2: From here it will ask you to choose the type of Buy Button you would like to create. If you are creating a button for an individual product select the “Product Buy Button” option.
Step 3: It will prompt you to select the product from your shop that you’d like to create a button for.
Step 4: Now it is time to customize your button. If you just want a simple button, change the layout style to Basic and you can adjust the button background and text colors as well as choose your font text and size. Once you are happy with your button, click the button that says next.
Step 5: After you click the “Next” button, you will be taken to a screen with a box of code. Click the Copy Code button.
Step 6: Go to your Showit account and open up the page where you want your Shopify button, then click into the canvas that you want the button to appear on.
Step 7: Go to the tools section at the bottom center of the Showit editor and select Embed Code.
From here a box will pop up and you will paste in the code you copied from Shopify. To paste in Showit hold down Ctrl V. Then click save.
Your customized button should now appear on your canvas within the page. Resize the button to your liking and place it where you want it on the canvas.
Step 8: Click Publish. Then preview the site and click on the button to make sure that the Shopify checkout opens up.
Create a button in Showit with the text that you want the button to say, then put the Shopify button directly over it. From here make sure that the Shopify button is selected and go over to the Effects menu on the right-hand side of Showit, click into Opacity and change the number to zero. The button is still there, it’s just not visible anymore, so only the branded button can be seen. When someone clicks on it, it will still open up the Shopify checkout.
Congratulations! You have now learned how to connect a Shopify store to a Showit website with buttons! Still have more questions?
