The settings here allow you to customize how customers view and select products across your entire store.
This will display the brand or supplier beneath the product title. You can add the brand to each product in the Products section of your Shopify admin.
When enabled, this option displays the Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) code for the product and its variants on the product page.
Enable image zoom
For product images over 1600px in width, this option will activate a zoom feature for customers to magnify the image for a closer look.
You can configure the level of magnification by selecting from the two options under Initial image zoom level.
Select an Option style to display your product variants in a dropdown menu (Dropdown) or as individual radio buttons (Selectable boxes).
Enable product recommendations
Enabling this option will activate the Product recommendations feature.
Select Enable sale badges to activate the labels indicating that an item is marked down from its regular price. Empire includes three different sale badge styles, allowing merchants to display a percentage off, a dollar amount, or a simple, classic “sale” badge. You can customize the look of these sale badges from the Sale badge style dropdown below.
Enable product reviews and ratings: This will add star ratings to your products, but you must first install Shopify's Product Reviews app to your store.
Enable social sharing: You can control which social networks are featured as sharing options from the Social media accounts area of the Theme settings.
Enable cart redirection: As explained in the theme editor, enabling this option will automatically send users to the cart page after adding a product to their cart (as opposed to keeping them on their current page).
Disable AJAX on product page
Certain apps require AJAX to be disabled to operate, so enabling this setting would deactivate the AJAX on product page.
Product image dimensions
The Slideshow aspect ratio setting lets you control the width to height ratio on the Product page where the images display. This can help keep them more consistent to browse through if the images are uploaded with varying ratios.
The ideal product image dimensions for the Empire theme are 2000 x 2000px.
The settings under Product grid specifically allow you to control the presentation of your products where they display in grids, such as the Collection page or Product recommendations.
Emphasize price: As explained in the theme editor, "Emphasizing the price will show the product's price above the title" (as opposed to below it, as is standard for the theme). It also enlarges the price.
Product aspect ratio: This refers to the proportional relationship between a product image's width and its height. With Empire, you can select cropped or uncropped versions of your grid images in the following aspect ratios: Natural, Square, Cropped or Tall.
Using an uncropped setting will generate white space around the image to create a uniform grid without cropping your image. The background in the editor indicates the applied white space, but will not appear on your storefront.
Here you can customize the buttons that appear within your product grids.
Show "Quick shop" button. By enabling quick look on your theme, you'll allow customers to view and select products without leaving the page they're browsing, creating a fast and seamless shopping experience.
Enable Show "Add to cart" button to display the add-to-cart (ATC) button right on your collection pages, reducing the number of steps to purchase.
To include an additional add-to-cart button that directs to the Checkout page, enable Show dynamic checkout button (DCB).
