This is what Real business owners think of WidgetChimp
The best useful tool I have come across in 10 years. I have been using it for a few months now. Well worth the money and time to utilise it to its full capability.
WidgetChimp has taken my eBay templates from 1st generation, to 3rd generation. I regularly received offers from design companies, often wanting in excess of £700 for what I would consider very poor listing templates, that were uneditable, and would cost me more to update each time I wanted to change even a minor detail.
I often found that the portfolios of these companies were out of date – their clients had moved on! When I put these concerns to the companies their replies were blunt or none existent, they could not answer my questions.
Thankfully WidgetChimp came to the rescue and I now have a template that grows with my business, I can edit it from my phone in a taxi on the way to a restaurant, and all my eBay listings are updated in real time. Fantastic.
I was hesitant to write a review as I don’t want my competitors to know my secrets, but after seeing all the hard work and constant updates Matt has put into this tool, it would be unfair not to give him and the template builder the credit they deserve.
Hi Matt, I just wanted to mention how impressed I am with your product Widget-Chimp.
It is the simplest, easiest and most effective way to get a customizable responsive template that hooks right into my Magento installation and delivers a very respectable array of drag and drop feature rich tweaks for that impressive and professional look that I require on all my eBay listings.
I really appreciate that I can update the layout instantly across all my listings from the control panel too.
Thanks for the excellent 11/10 product.
eBay announced in July 2014 that as much as 40% of eBay transactions are now touched by mobile devices, with that number expected to keep increasing.
This means it is more important than ever before to have a mobile optimised experience for your customers on eBay and that is exactly what the Widget Chimp eBay Template Builder allows you to do.
Our unique template builder has been designed from the ground up, to allow you to create 100% Responsive eBay templates.
Create your very own fully Responsive design which look amazing whether viewed on a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
We have done our utmost to make the eBay Template Builder as easy to use as possible.
It is for exactly this reason you won’t have to type a single character of HTML code anywhere.
Instead we have built you a seamless, yet intuitive “Drag & Drop” interface which puts you in total control of how your listings look and feel without needing to be web designer or developer.
You can control every aspect of your eBay template from the layout, to the content and even the colours of the layout, all in a really easy to manage interface.
There are 11 layout styles, over a dozen colour options, the ability to add custom background shadows and over 30 pre-made colour schemes to choose from.
With your Widget Chimp account you can create & save as many Responsive eBay listing templates as you need in your account for no additional cost.
This is perfect for running different styles through the seasons of the year, or any special promotions you would want to run.
Alternatively these are perfect if you are selling internationally allowing you to run templates in different languages specific to the country you are selling in.
You’ll not find anything like WidgetChimp ANYWHERE else on the Internet. Here’s why…
All of these widgets are only available in WidgetChimp.
And remember, they’re “Responsive” so they adapt to your customers screen sizes, including mobile phones, iPads, laptops and desktops too.
With this widget you can display your business logo anywhere you need in your listing template. If you don’t have a logo yet you can pick from over 25 pre-made logos.
Also your logo by default links to your eBay store and if you don’t have an eBay store just yet, to your sellers list page on eBay.
Oh and you can also use a full width image as the logo and allow it to span the entire top of your listing template for maximum impact too.
You can let your customers find the other products in your eBay store easily.
With the search widget you can customise the text that appears in the search box, its size and where it searches too as well.
We know that some sellers prefer buyers to search the sellers list page, while other sellers prefer that buyers search their eBay shop.
You can set either, its your template.
The navigation bar widget gives you ultimate control over the main navigation bar in your listings. It’s responsive too, so when a customer is view in your products on a mobile phone, it collapses and is finger-tapping friendly.
You can change the home icon, select whether to include your eBay store categories as a dropdown menu, add custom links, to your eBay store or other listings, add a search box and even a daily deals widget too!
Because the navigation bar is a special widget and of high importance, this widget also comes with explicit options to change the colour scheme to one that perfectly matches your business identity
A special widget designed for you to show your unique selling points (USP’s) at the top of your listing template.
And of course comes with configuration options to style it however you would like it to appear.
This is the coolest part of the Responsive Template Builder of them all…
After you have created your Responsive eBay listing template and added it to 1, 10, 100 or even 100,000 listings. In other software tools to change the listing template design, colours or layouts you would have to revise all those listings on eBay.
That takes ages!
Not with WidgetChimp.
If you make a change to your listing template, press save, press one button and all of your eBay listings are instantly updated.
Think about that for a few moments.
No more manual design revisions, everything is remote controllable.
You too can create your very own daily deals for your eBay listings.
By adding a daily deals widget to your listing, you can promote a special eBay listing to appear on all the listings that are using this template.
If you decide to change the daily deal, change the item number, any customisation settings, press two buttons and the latest daily deal now appears on all the listings that are using the template.
Sometimes you have a lot of information to convey to customers, if you were to put these into one long table then the template could scroll on for ever.
By using the multiple tabs widget you can add up to 4 custom tabs to display common information such as your payment, delivery, contact and about us.
You can also change the icons on these tabs, plus the heights, add in any of the +1,400 icons and they collapse gracefully on small screens too.
Your customers are everywhere, they’re on eBay, Facebook, Twitter, Google and Pinterest, amongst others!
With this widget you can add in your social accounts, customise the social sharing icon and links and display them in your listing template.
While you customise each listing with its own description when you list to eBay using the template or revise a live eBay listing using our very simple revision tool, there are additional options that you will find handy for your business.
Such as being able to add a custom message to the bottom of all your listing descriptions, the ability to change the sections title and icon, to include your listing title, plus whether you would like the star ratings from the eBay reviews widget to appear under the listing title too.
Using this widget you can place your eBay listing title anywhere you wish in your Responsive listing template.
While it comes with numerous design options, the main one is the font size and colour, plus the ability to attach it to the description widget at the top, with the customised settings.
These are the most flexible widgets of them all.
You can add your own HTML, set them to have a border, a title & icon if you wish, or none of the above. Anywhere you would like a custom message you can use these widgets to add your own custom content anywhere in the listing template.
You can also select from over 1,400 pre made icons, flag icons, courier images and payment logos to show in the custom messages widgets (you can also add these to any of the other widgets that have text areas in too!)
These widgets are the coolest of them all. Each and every widget is 100% customisable by you for your business
Being able to cross promote and upsell your customers is key to a successful business on any website, let alone eBay.
This widget puts you firmly in control.
There are two layouts to choose from and you even have granular control over the keywords that are used to display the related items, you’re able to refine them by your store categories or both!
In the simple create or revise tool in WidgetChimp, adding and customising these refinements is made easy and no need to try and locate your store category numbers, WidgetChimp is directly linked to eBay, so we download them for you and make it as simple as a dropdown box to select from.
We like easy :)
This is another prime example of how powerful WidgetChimp is.
This widget allows you to display your eBay item specifics in your listing template either in a separate block or you can also attach them to the bottom of your listing description as a table.
No “coding is required”, they just work.
They’re updated nightly so if you make a change to your item specifics, they’re updated the next day, no need for you to do anything at all, leaving you the time & effort to focus on the rest of your businesses success.
Actually there are two types of video player widgets that you can add to your responsive listing template.
The first is a static video player for YouTube or Vimeo videos. A great example of this would be for an “About Us” or “Meet the Team” video that you would like to display on all your listings.
The other widget is listing specific, so if for example you sell tents and you have a video to show how to put the tent up, you can include up to two of these per listing, anywhere in the listing you desire.
These can be set using keywords from your eBay listing tool or if you don’t have any eBay listing software yet, then you can use our simple revision or customisation tool to enter the video type and video id to your listings easily.
I’m sure you’ll have seen these elsewhere on the internet, maybe not called as “Breadcrumbs” before though.
They look like this:
Home > Your eBay Store > Listing Title
With the breadcrumbs widget you can show your customers where they are and because they look similar to the eBay breadcrumbs.
The chances are higher that a passing customer will carry on to your eBay store, rather than back into the wilds of eBay.
Using the original eBay reviews widget you can show your eBay feedback in your listings.
However it doesn’t stop there…
The widget is smart. If you have received feedback for a specific eBay listing, then the widget switches to the feedback that your customers have left you about that eBay listing.
Think about that, customer reviews for the product that they have bought and if there aren’t any yet, then you can show the last, 5, 6 ,7, 8, 9 or 10 comments from your customers right back in your listings.
And of course, they’re automagically updated so once you add the widget, that’s it you don’t need to do anything more, it updates itself.
Thinking back to last year when we had strikes by Royal Mail and then the snow, almost every eBay seller was affected.
With the custom alerts widget you’re able to apply a high visibility messages to all of your listings easily.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to wait for an extreme event to happen, you could also use this widget to inform customers of the daily order cut off time, so that you can squeeze in a few extra sales each day.
Let’s say you’ve built your first Responsive eBay listing template, now what?
You can use our extremely simple eBay revision tool to apply the template to your live eBay listings!
We couldn’t make it any simpler for you:
If you use advanced 3rd party eBay listing software, you could of have downloaded the template with the all the keywords you need pre-populated. A full list of supported tools is at the bottom of this page.
PS. You could choose the “Customise & Download” option instead and paste the Responsive template directly into eBay.
This is another one of those widgets that you normally have to pay extra for in old style listing templates.
However with WidgetChimp this is included and comes with extra customisation options found nowhere else.
Dynamically updating, you can show your eBay store categories in your listing template, select from 3 different formats and change the colour scheme to meet your businesses branding.
PS. The founder of WidgetChimp, Matthew Ogborne, is the developer of the eBay store categories widget that many of the leading eBay design companies use across the globe, powering hundreds of thousands of listings every day.
WidgetChimp uses a bespoke version available no-where else.
Other listing templates have image galleries, WidgetChimp has a Responsive image gallery.
This means that your product images and image gallery will resize to your customers screen size automatically.
Also you can change where any additional thumbnail images are shown, at the top, left, right or underneath the main image, plus there are advanced settings to control the image sizes too.
Oh and if your customer clicks on the main gallery image, it’ll open up in a “light box” so that they can see the full sized image. In Spring 2015, a zoom feature will also be added, mobile device friendly of course :)
If you’re using the simple-to-use revision tool in WidgetChimp, when you revise an eBay listing to use your responsive listing template, the revision tool automatically enters the images that you have used on eBay.
So no need to copy and paste links to images in for existing listings, they’re already preloaded for you!
And of course, if you’re using 3rd Party listing software, the downloaded template will include all the image keywords you need.
This widget allows you to show your eBay feedback and detailed seller ratings anywhere in your responsive eBay listing template.
Just want to show your eBay feedback table? You can do that. You can just show your detailed seller ratings only if you wanted.
Both are updated dynamically, so you drag and drop this widget anywhere in your listing template, customise any settings and forget it, WidgetChimp updates it automatically.
And the coolest thing about this Widget?
Based upon the eBay site that your listing is from, it translates itself! It’s been professionally translated for you so that it works perfectly with over 19 eBay sites. French, German, Spanish, Italian and so on…
A widget such as this is normally an expensive addon with traditional eBay listing templates, however with WidgetChimp it’s bundled into an easy-to-use widget.
You can add up to 5 sliding banners to each listing template, add a high-impact caption message, a call to action button or just leave it naked and let your artwork do the talking.
With the money you save by not having to buy this extra with a old fashioned listing template, you can spend the savings on having custom banners created instead for maximum impact.
Would you like a sliding widget that shows the latest positive feedback received on your eBay account?
With this widget you can show a high impact sliding gallery of comments to your listing template, anywhere you wish.
Perfectly suited to a sidebar, the helpful links widget provides dynamically updating links to help your customers find out more about you and your business.
This could be to ask a question, click through to your eBay store, view your feedback and so on.. Oh and the labels for these, you can change the text to whatever you would like them to say.
We’re big fans of the icon boxes because they look sooo cool!
A great example of an icon box widget in use, is that of your contact details. So you can show a large telephone icon, your phone number and your opening hours just underneath.
You can of course pick from any other the other +600 icons available and enter any message you like.
While your customer is in your eBay listing, they can perform any of these actions using vibrantly coloured buttons.
The text labels & icons are customisable and you can select just one all or 4 of these buttons to appear in your listing templates.
Here’s a run-down of the “New way” compared to the “old way” for eBay listing templates
