In this article, you will learn about another Shopify element named Product Description.

About Product Description element

The Product Description element is designed to present the description of your Shopify products on your page to increase your conversion rate. You can use the Product Description element to promote your products on any non-product page or use it on a product page.

Note that you can search for this element by using the search function instead of finding it in the sidebar.

Another important thing is that if you want to edit the description content, you have to go to the Shopify admin to edit.

Product Description element comes with two common variations but we will continue to add more variations to help you save time.

Drag a variation to layout and see how it can be configured.

Product Description element configuration

Product Description element comes with plenty of parameters allowing you to fine-tune content appearance for the best possible conversion rate.

Select the element in the layout to see its parameters.

When you drag and drop the Product Description element into the editor page, there are 2 choices for the Product Source option for you to choose from such as:

  • Auto
  • Custom Product

Note that if you are in the Product Page and use the Product Description element, then you can choose the Product Source option. However, if you are in a Regular Page and use this element, the Product Source option is disabled and the Custom Product chosen by default.

If you choose Auto, then the product that was assigned when you created this product page will be displayed in the page editor. The Auto option is the default when you use the Product Description element.

You can choose Custom Product and select the product you want.
