Using Quick View

Quick View allows your customers to see more details about a product and add it to their cart without having to go to the individual product page, leading to a more fluid checkout flow. Enabling and disabling, and customizing this feature differs, based on the theme applied to the store. 

Example of the Quick View feature on a BigCommerce store.

2. Click to expand the Products menu, and scroll down to Display settings.

Customizing the Quick View Button

In the Quick View Settings area, you can choose to edit the colors used on the button. These fields require you to enter the colors in hexadecimal format, so using a color picker to find hex color codes might be useful. There are three color fields available to customize: button color, gradient color, and text color.

You can also change the button text from the default "Quick View" to something else.


Note: This feature is not supported on all themes, as some themes require CSS customization to update the quick view button's styling.
