Manage Storefront Descriptions

Descriptions may be created by Site Managers, Campus Admins, and Publishers depending on system configuration.

You may add descriptions and images for any product in Informetica. The description display information about your product to users viewing your storefront. 

The image below shows an example of a course description.

Keeping Your Storefront Neat & Tidy
Consider using short, simple descriptions to allow you to showcase more products on one page without requiring your users to do a lot of scrolling to view your offerings. It is best practice to use images either for all of your products or for none of your products so that store pages look uniform.

When including images, it is usually preferable to make them all a standard size. Thumbnails used on the category pages are automatically resized to 100 x 100 pixels. Larger images that show up after a customer clicks an item are only standard if you have uploaded them all as the same size. 300 x 300 pixels is a good starting point.

  8. Select Save when finished.

Best Practises
Product descriptions that are updated directly in the storefront are not reflected within Informetica. Therefore, it is typically best practice to create and edit the description text within Informetica itself.

  1. Log in to Informetica.
  2. Navigate to the Manage Bundles page ((see ///Bundles).
  3. Select the name of the bundle or Edit to open it.
