I Like a Template That’s Not for My Industry, Can I Still Use It?

You can use any template that you want from either the free library or a designer template. Because every element on any template can be completely customized it doesn’t matter what industry it’s for as long as it has all of the pages you need.

Can I Transfer My Website from Another Website Platform to Showit?

Yes and no. You’ll have to redesign all of your pages from scratch except for your blog posts. The blog content should be migratable if you’re moving from Squarespace or WordPress, but if you’re moving from Wix you’ll have to do it manually.

Does Showit Come With Hosting and a Domain?

Showit comes with built-in hosting but you’ll have to connect a domain from a third party, I recommend using Google domains.

What is Included with Showit hosting?

Can I Add E-Commerce to My Website?

Only if you use a third-party integration like Shopify Lite or ThriveCart or a WordPress Plugin like Woocommerce. This can work for smaller shops but if the main focus of your website is to sell lots of physical products a full Shopify website or possible Squarespace would be a better website platform for you. If you’re selling lots of digital products Showit can be a good fit, you might need to use a course hosting platform like Kartra or Kajabi or you might need a Shopify website, it depends on what type of digital products you’re selling.

Does Showit Come with Customer Support?

Showit’s support team and articles are amazing. In fact, because the platform is so easy to use and the support articles are so well written, I rarely have to contact the support team. The support team works during the weekdays for extended hours. If your launching a new website you’ll want to make sure that it’s during a time the support team is available in case you have any problems.

Is There a Media Library for Uploading Images?

Yes! Showit has a bulk image uploader for all of your photos, logos, etc. You can easily organize everything into however many folders you need to quickly find later. You can also search within the media library by file name. This feature is especially great if you’re a photographer, videographer or someone who needs to have a lot of images on your website.

Can I Use a Custom Font on My Website?

Showit comes with preloaded fonts from Google that you use for your website. If you want to use a custom font that’s not already uploaded to the platform you can easily upload a custom font.
