Share This Posts

With a Timely account, you can easily incorporate an event calendar and widgets onto your Shopify web page. You only have to copy a code snippet and add it to the back end of your site. Additionally, any modifications or updates you make to your calendar and events will display immediately. You can even use the calendar to collect registrations and sell tickets to your events, if you wish. This article will provide you with step-by-step guidance on how to add an events calendar and widgets to your Shopify website.

1. What is Shopify?

Shopify is an e-commerce platform that enables people and companies to build and manage their digital stores. It provides a selection of tools and services that makes it simple for any individual to create an online store, offer goods and services, and control orders, payments, and distribution.

This platform presents a variety of functions while building a customizable website. You can also rely on a secure shopping cart system, a payment gateway, shipment and taxation organization, stock management, marketing and SEO tools, and customer assistance.

Shopify is a popular choice for enterprises of all sizes, from little startups to large businesses. It’s user-friendly and requires no technical expertise, making it accessible to anyone looking to sell products online. Additionally, Shopify also offers a diversity of payment plans to accommodate various budgets and requirements, ranging from basic plans for little businesses to advanced plans for large enterprises.

2. Full Calendar vs Widgets Embedding

When it comes to organizing and promoting events on your Shopify website, Timely event calendar software is the best option. With over a dozen calendar views available, you can create a full-scale calendar or use smaller calendar widgets to showcase your events. Moreover, slider and carousel widgets can be employed to enhance the design of your Shopify website and better display your events to your audience.

A full-scale calendar, which may span an entire Shopify page, is distinguishable from a widget view, as the latter is usually smaller and requires less space. Both options can be embedded individually or together to create an engaging experience for your visitors.
