OPTION 1: VineSpring Hosted Storefront (HSF)
A fully functional VineSpring Hosted Storefront (HSF) comes with every VineSpring 3 account. Our HSF is something you can use to get up and running with a storefront connected to your website very quickly. There are limited customization options (ie: fonts, colors, logo) that can be easily changed via the VineSpring admin panel.
Examples (click the link below and navigate to their "store" - you'll notice the domain changes to a VineSpring hosted domain once on their HSF):
To view your HSF, from the VineSpring admin (https://app.vinespring.com):
- Click Settings
- Click Business
- Click Account Plan
- Click the web address to the right of "Storefront"
All options to customize / style the HSF are located under:
- Click Settings
- Click Storefront
Here you will see the various places to make customizations and edits to things like logo, colors, fonts and verbiage.
The HSF contains all functionality available to your pricing plan.
We've created a guide explaining in greater detail the various customization options. As always, reach out to us if we can help explain these options.
OPTION 2: A Hybrid Approach
Customize the "Store" page on your own custom domain website, but link to the HSF for cart, checkout, and all account pages
The hybrid approach is a good choice if you want complete control over the look and feel of your store pages, but don't want to re-build all of the other VineSpring related functionality (cart, checkout, and account pages).
The examples below have built their store pages directly on their website using the web editing tools of that platform (WordPress, Squarespace, etc) and linked each page to the corresponding VineSpring HSF or cart.
We've created a guide to help give you more information on linking the HSF back to your frontend store.
OPTION 3: Full customization using the SDK (Software Developer Kit)
With the SDK, a web developer is able to seamlessly embed VineSpring functionality with your own custom domain. Some functionality is fully customizable, such as the Product List, Product Detail, and Allocation pages, while other pages are not customizable (ie: the checkout page).
Here's is a link to the SDK documentation: https://vinespring.github.io/js-sdk
