Product information

Tell your own story

Nothing lasts quite like a good story – a completely novel feature for Shopping Worlds, Storytelling allows you to guide customers’ through your shop with a compelling narrative. Through engagement on a personal level, customers are able to develop completely individual ties with your brand.

Modelled after the experience of exploring a physical store, Storytelling transfers the emotional impact of discovering that “perfect item” to an online scenario. This feature takes your product presentation to the next level – where they are not only presented, but also tailored to coordinate with the context of their moods and values.

Seamless and atmospheric

Storytelling creates coherent shopping experiences across several devices – the voice and style will not be lost by changing the device.

Sideview - Let curiosity take control

An emotional catalyst, Sideview is an additional element of any balanced, inspired shopping experience. After clicking or touching an image of interest, the customer is presented further details of the items contained within the image.

This engaging approach to browsing and discovering new treasures not only creates a truly memorable shopping experience, but also contributes to exceptional usability.

Quickview — A never-ending experience

With Shopware 5, customers are more likely to remain in your online store due to the deep emotional involvement experienced during their visit – an essential relationship that is further supported by Quickview. When a customer clicks or touches a banner or product, a more detailed information page is displayed.

With interest, the customer is free to save the item to their personal wish list or purchase directly. Your customers can close Quickview whenever they choose and return to the same place in your online shop. Nothing disrupts the unity of the Shopping World, narrative and emotion – neither navigation nor the device being used during the customer’s journey.

Whitepaper / Tutorial Storytelling Shopware 5

Purchase products directly from Shopping Worlds

Customers can make purchases directly from the product listing, leading to an even better shopping experience – especially on mobile devices. This means that the customer journey will never be interrupted by reloading the page.

Global for all product detail pages

The Quickview function can be activated in all sliders and listings. When your customers click on a product, the product will pop up as an overlay in the QuickView module. The customer journey will no longer be interrupted due to page reload.

Quickview for the product listing

Alternatively, you can use Quickview only for the “Details” button. All you have to do is activate the option “Display purchase button in the listing” in your basic settings.

When your customer clicks on the product’s detail button, they can easily select the desired colour, size, etc. of the product and place it directly in the shopping cart.

Please note: 
This is an Advanced Feature of the Shopware 5 Professional Edition.

Thank You!

23 Jul 2018

We monitor our shop using Google Analytics and noticed that the time spent on landing pages that use Storytelling are considerably longer than the rest of our website. The bounce rates are also lower than the normal product or category pages. Moreover, Storytelling landing pages are ranked highly on Google. We have nothing but good words to say about this add-on.


Wie aus der Steinzeit.

21 May 2018

Wie aus der digitalen Steinzeit. Jedes anderes System hat einen besseren Page Builder (siehe z.B. dutzende für Wordpress, CsCart, Prestashop und viele mehr). Ein Alptraum für Leute, die auf freie Layout-Gestaltung und SEO Wert legen.


Mobil nicht einsetzbar

15 Sep 2017

Trotz diverser Reports, ist dieses Feature auf Mobilen Geräten weiterhin nicht einsetzbar. Das Storytelling-Feature wurde so gebaut, dass Footer-Content, der über 100% der Bildschirmhöhe einnimmt, nicht aufgerufen werden kann. D.h., dass selbst in der Shopware-Demo mobil Buttons oder Footer-Menü-Elemente nicht aufgerufen werden können.
Auf Fehler-Reports im Issue-Tracker wird wie gewohnt nicht adequat reagiert.


Funktioniert - Must Have Produkt - jeden Penny Wert!

4 Jan 2017

der Left Side Manager füllt einer der Lücken wenn es um optische Werbung in Shopware 5.0 geht. Und davon gibt es noch ne Menge. Daraus könnte man ein Premium Plug machen.

Die Installation ist einfach wie bei den meisten Plug´s.
Danach bekommt man eine Vorlage, in den man händisch per HTML-Code, Banner auf der Linken Seite darstellen kann. Etwas HTML ist Pflicht ! sonst geht da gar nichts.

Eine Hilfe wie man ein Bild mit verlinkung in die Kategorie oder zum Produkt realisiert, gibt es nicht. Das Tool ist also nichts für Vollblut Anfänger.

Hilfe bekommt man aber im Netz.
Der Support war freundlich und bei uns immer erreichbar.

+ plus
Das Tool ist jeden Penny wert....
Es ist einfach zu Installieren
Es macht genau das was es soll
Es funktioniert hervorragend
Der Support ist gut

- minus ( das kann besser Sein)

Das Tool sollten man Direkt im Menu aufrufen können.

Eine kleine Hilfestellung bei den Verlinkungen
sollte eventuell mitgeliefert werden, eventuell mit einem kleinen Aufpreis
das wäre OK. Denn jeder möchte für seine Arbeit bezahlt werden.

have a nice day
