Catalog Pages for Your eCommerce Store

Updated September 30, 2022  |  5 min read

Who Uses Catalog Pages?

Catalog pages are valuable for all types of eCommerce businesses. They present category and subcategory hierarchy and allow users to navigate through your eCommerce website in a number of helpful ways.

With Clarity’s eCommerce platform, you can tailor your catalog pages to your specific needs.

How Catalog Pages Can Help eCommerce

Customers appreciate a nicely laid out, navigable website. Catalog pages make it easy for users to browse the way they want and look for items in particular categories and subcategories.

What Catalog Pages Can Do for You

When users can search and sort through products in different ways, they can pick the way that makes the most sense to them and reach the item they want faster. This speeds up the purchasing process and ultimately increases customer satisfaction.

With Clarity’s eCommerce platform, you can configure your catalog pages in a number of different ways. You can have one or more of these features working together to create smooth, operational, and well-designed catalog pages.

Catalog Page Configurations

Here are different ways product catalog pages can be configured for your eCommerce platform:

  • Category Landing Page – Categories are displayed on the landing page. The user selects one and browses items within that category.
  • Browse by Industry – The user selects a particular industry to view the products and options within that industry.
  • Subcategory Selection – Within categories are subcategories, which further help users manage their search. Within a subcategory, dynamic filters apply to that search.
  • Card Format – For each top-level category on the page, the name of the category is displayed below an image, each one contained in its own card.
  • Tree View – Categories and subcategories are listed out, and each one can collapse and expand so the user can view just what they want to.
  • More Visuals – Each category has an icon, so that within each category the user has a visual associated with it.
  • Subcategory Detail – Each subcategory has a description that gives the user some basic information about it. Below that are related subcategories.
  • Full List – The user can expand and collapse a fill list of (sub)categories as they navigate.
  • Number of Items Available – Within a category or subcategory, a number is displayed that shows the number of items that are available.
  • Filter and List View – Users can see the available categories and subcategories in a list where they can filter and sort them in different ways.
  • Immersive Page – A visual component, such as a banner, presents a top-level category at the top of the page. The imagery visually represents the category.
  • Dynamic Featured Items – Featured products can be shown dynamically at the top of the page for more interaction.
  • Queueing Featured Items – Featured products can be queueing up for display from a back-office data source like an ERP.
  • Ad Displays – Ads on webpages can be from vendors, a buying group promotion, or other sources.
  • Top Selling Products – It’s helpful to users if you display the top selling products within a (sub)category.
  • Specific Subcategory Presentation – Within a subcategory, the information and displays are specific to that subcategory.
  • Applied Categories to Catalog – Once the user gets to the catalog, the categories and subcategories selected are applied and filtered for.
  • Particular Content Overrides – Each category within the eCommerce platform can have the same layout but its own content on the page.
  • Closeouts and Featured Items – Within the displayed products list, you can include closeouts, featured products, new items, most popular, recommended, or a specific brand.
  • Account-Based Filtering – Filters can be applied based on the account type (e.g., personal vs business) or preferences set by the user.
