Product Page Walkthrough
In your Tapcart Dashboard, navigate to the drop-down under ‘Design’ and select ‘Product Page’ to edit your page layout. When you first open this page, you will see one of your products displayed on the right-hand side. This is your default view that is populated by your best-selling product. To see what the page will look like with other products, simply click the shuffle icon or the page icon in the top right-hand corner of the product and select the product you would like to view.
Important Note- The product page builder customization applies to all products.
Customizing Your Product Page
On the left-hand side of your Product Page is your block bank. Simply drag and drop your blocks into your product page display to update your app and create a dynamically engaging product page. Below is a summary of each block in your block bank.
Image Banner Block
With the Image Banner Block, you can upload an image banner that will appear on the product page of your mobile app. The banner can remain static, link to a collection, or an in-app webpage. Use this block to highlight promotion banners, such as ‘Free Shipping Friday’ or ‘In-App Exclusive’!
For Enterprise Merchants: Use Dynamic Layouts powered by Shopify Product Tags to add flexibility to your product page layout. A Dynamic Layouts block will only appear in your app’s product page if the product has any of the tags associated with that block. This feature will allow you to display content for limited promotions, product line content, and more!

Video Banner Block
With the Video Banner Block, you can upload a video and choose a thumbnail image as a banner on the product page layout. To upload a video or image, simply click on the icon and select the video or image file. We recommend videos under 5 MB’s for optimized load times in the app when using LTE/device data. Use this block to highlight your lookbook and lifestyle content!
Product Video Block
The product video block gives you the ability to display your brand’s Shopify product videos. This block will pull its data from the Shopify product model’s media.
Important Note- This block does not play videos uploaded to YouTube. It only plays the videos you have manually uploaded to your Shopify product media.
Utilize the Share Block to make it easy for your customers to share products they love with the ones they love!
When a user taps on this from the product page it will open the share in iOS or Android share sheets.
Product Description Block
The Product Description block allows you to display all other relevant information for your products. Change the title or main content as you see fit (ie., Product Details, Product Information, etc.).
Choose how you want your content to be displayed by selecting an accordion view or a new modal view. The modal view will bring up a new block that displays the content, while an accordion will display the content as a dropdown.

Product Tags Block
Powered by Shopify Product Tags, use this block to call attention to important information on your products. This block allows you to display crucial product tags, such as “limited time promo”, “pre-order” or “no returns”.
A maximum of three tags will show on any given product page and the display will be prioritized based on the order they were added.
A variant block allows your users to select a variant of a product, such as size or color. There are two types of variant block displays to choose from; the dropdown or inline!
The Drop-down Variant Selection Block, allows you to create a seamless shopping experience in the form of a drop-down and minimizes screen real estate on your product page.
The Inline Variant Selection Block will display all the variant options for the product without the need for a drop-down.
Installment Provider Block
The Installment Provider Block will appear only if you have one of the following Installment providers enabled:
An installment provider will allow your users to spread out their payments for a certain order. Use this block in your product page layout to help increase your average order values.
