But the real question is: How do we convert a Webflow site to Shopify through the help of Udesly?

Eric Phung
Founder & Owner

Firstly, what is Udesly? 

To simplify (and as simple as it is), Udesly is a no-code platform that works with Webflow with many amazing resources. Due to that, Udesly Adapter App will support converting Webflow projects to Shopify (or other platforms if needed). In general, it eases out all the processes and allows you to enjoy the benefit of both at a much faster pace.

Most importantly, now we know Udesly is helpful. But have you ever had a full look at both Webflow & Shopify’s advantages? 

Core Benefits of Webflow: 

To this day, while WordPress is a solidly well-known platform for designers & web developers, Webflow is also gaining its reputation. One of its main points is simplicity, yet professional and can make the most for both starters and intermediate users. But these core benefits are what you should mind: 

Code-free platform:

Right from the start, it sounds incredible to those who don’t know much about websites and codes. Webflow provides a complete CMS that allows users to create new blogs, portfolios, and services without complex coding. 

Zero plug-ins required: 

Next, while WordPress requires a lot of plug-ins to add functionality, you can find them all in Webflow. Every tool you need is right with a click, and much greater convenience is added. 

Fully responsive: 

Being mobile-friendly is the key to winning customers’ interest in the current situation as 60% of web traffic came from mobile phones. Although tablets and desktops run quite low in comparison, having a responsive website to many screen sizes always helps you get more customers than not. 

Moreover, your website should be fast and responsive as well. Webflow makes it much easier for you to create views from multiple screens, thus reducing the amount of work. 

Hosting & updates: 

Reasonable prices with super easy hosting plans start from $20 per month and a know-how system that can be trusty in their own updates. 

Webflow checked, now how about Shopify? 

Best benefits Shopify brings: 

Easy to use: 

Zero fuss system that makes launching an online store much simpler, and yes, at a lower cost. Therefore, we would say Shopify is on the top of user-friendly since instruction & help are super easy to catch up. 

Reliable: 

With Shopify, all your data is encrypted and secured with SSL. To make it simpler for you, all customers' information and server maintenance always have to go past a secure connection before heading in (or out) of the system. 

SEO tools:

Not many eCommerce platforms have come up with a strong foundation for SEO as Shopify would. It has a powerful search engine optimization feature, along with marketing tools like product reviews and online marketing. 

Convert - integrate from Webflow to Shopify normally

Now you have fully acquired the details about both platforms, it’s time we show you how to connect them.

Step 1: Sign up for a Shopify account

Much simple as it sounds, go visit the official Shopify site here: https://www.shopify.in/

Follow the sign-up process to create your store and add-on details. Right after everything is set to your preference, just click I’m done.

Step 2: Make a Webflow Collection for your products 

Now you’ll need to store all your products by establishing a Webflow Collection. Enter the required information and move to the next steps.

Step 3: Add your Shopify products

Bring your products out and add them to the collection by locating the Product Handle and Product Component. You'll receive a Product ID and Product Handle from the embed code from Shopify. Then you can integrate Webflow - Shopify through these instructions.

  • Click on the Navigation button and click on the Buy button
  • Choose your product and select Generate Code.
  • Copy the code and locate the Product ID. 

Step 4: Add the embedded component to your collection

Once done with the precious steps, you need a collection page to hold all the embed code. To do this, drop the code to the component list you’ve made for products and make sure you as the Buy button to it.

Step 5: Take the embed code from Shopify

Run back and do the same as step 3 to retrieve the Shopify embed code and Unique IDs. After you've found them, paste them into your embed component in step 4.

Step 6: Replace the Unique IDs

Finally, to link the Buy button to each product, you must replace the product components and ID fields with the collection fields you’ve made previously. Choose Product Component and Product IDs values, and click +Add Field to change content with your values.
