  • Is there a limit to the number of products I can sell using your Website Builder shopping cart?

    No, there is no limit to the number of products you can sell with our Website Builder's shopping cart. That being said, adding too many products may make your product page slow, especially if you have a lot of images for each product. Luckily, the Website Builder's Business plan comes with unlimited pages, so if this is an issue you can spread out your products between multiple pages. Please note that access to our shopping cart feature is only available through our Website Builder Business plan. How do I add a product to my inventory? How do I remove a product from my inventory? How do I select what page a product appears on?
