CMS: Displaying Your Wix Stores Products on a Dynamic List Page

11 min read
Use the CMS (Content Management System) to get creative with the display of your Wix Stores products by showcasing them in a fully-customizable repeater on a dynamic list page. Choose only the page elements you need (e.g. text, buttons, images) and connect them to the relevant fields used by your products (e.g. name, price, quantity in stock). 

You can link buttons or images to your Product Page so customers can click to learn more before purchasing. You can also create 'Add to Cart' and 'Quick View' buttons for a seamless shopping experience.
Before you begin:

Step 1 | Add a dynamic list page for your products

Go to Wix App Collections in your Editor's CMS and create a dynamic list page from the Stores collection. This page includes a repeater that is already partially connected to your Stores products.

Studio Editor
  1. Go to your Editor.
  2. Click CMS  on the left of the Editor.
  3. Click Wix App Collections on the left.  
  4. Scroll down to Stores, hover over Products and click the More Actions icon
  5. Click Add dynamic page
  1. Click List page
  2. Click Add to Site

Tip: If you want to use a different style repeater, you can delete the default repeater and add a new one. You'll connect the repeater elements in the next step. 
Tip:
You can display your products in a Pro Gallery or table (Wix Editor only) instead of a repeater. To do so, remove the repeater and add a gallery or table. Then follow the rest of the steps in this article to connect your gallery or repeater to the CMS.

Step 2 | Connect your repeater to the CMS

Connect the repeater to a dataset that binds to your Wix Stores products collection. Then connect each repeater element to the dynamic values of your collection that change depending on the product shown. Make sure to link an image or button in your repeater to the Wix Stores Product Page so customers can view additional info about products before purchasing. You can also create 'Add to cart' and 'Quick View' links.

  1. (Optional) Add elements to your repeater (e.g. buttons, text, images) or remove elements you do not need. You can adjust the size of the repeater so it can contain all the elements. 
  2. Click the repeater element and select the Connect to CMS icon .
  3. Click the Choose a dataset drop-down and select Products.
  4. Under Connections, click the repeater element you want to connect.
    Note: If you're using the default repeater that came with the dynamic page, the Image and Text elements are already connected. You can delete extra text elements or disconnect and replace them with static text. 
  5. Click the relevant drop-downs and select the Wix Stores dynamic collection fields you want to connect or the dataset linking options for buttons and images:
    • Wix Stores collection fields: Select the relevant fields, for example:
      • Name (Text): The product name you created in Wix Stores.
      • Formatted Discounted Price (Text): The price formatted with the currency (e.g. $20).
      • Main Media (Image): The main media item (image or video) for the product.
    • Buttons and images linking options: Click the Click action connects to or Link connects to drop-down and select the relevant option:
      • Navigate to Product Page URL: Go to the web address of the product's page on your site. 
      • Add to cart: Add the product to the cart. 
      • Open quick view: Open a popup with details about the product. 
  1. Click Repeater connections and repeat steps 4-5 above to connect additional elements in the repeater. 
  2. Click to adjust your repeater elements as needed.
    Tip: You can add or remove elements from your repeater at any time. Disconnect elements if you want to use static content that doesn't change according to the relevant category. 
  3. Click Preview to test your dynamic products page.
  4. Click Publish if you are ready to make the changes go live. 

Step 3 | (Optional) Manage the dataset settings

In your dataset settings, you can choose the maximum products that can display at a time. You can also add filters to include only certain products, or add sorts to control the order in which the products display.

Editor X
Studio Editor
  1. In your Editor, click the Products dataset and select Settings
  2. Edit the Maximum items displayed field to set the maximum number of products that can load at a time on the page. This is also the maximum categories that can load per page in a connected pagination bar or per click in a "Load More" button
  3. (Optional) Click + Add Filter to only show specific products in the repeater. 
  4. (Optional) Click + Add Sort to choose the order in which the products appear in the repeater.
  5. Click Preview to test your dynamic products page.
  6. Click Publish if you are ready to make the changes go live. 

Step 4 | (Optional) Let customers filter products

Give shoppers a way to view only products that match filters they apply such as price, inventory, or brand. Choose from any of the following input elements that allow filtering: Radio Buttons, CheckboxesDropdownSelection Tags, or Slider (Range Sliders only).

Step 5 | (Optional) Add 'Load More' or navigational buttons

You can improve your page's performance by limiting the number of products that appear and adding a 'Load More' button. 

Add navigational buttons to let shoppers click to view the next/previous items displayed or add a pagination bar for cycling through a set number of products at a time.
