What is a widget?

A widget is a tool that allows you to perform a function or integrate different services into your Create website without any knowledge of HTML code.

Examples of some of our best widgets include a featured product grid, social sharing icons, Google Maps, and an Instagram feed, to name just a few. See the full list >>

All of our widgets are free to use with a Create subscription and can be used anywhere on your site that has an editor. So, for example, you can add them to the content pages of your site or to the long description of your store product.

Creating and adding widgets to your web pages is simple, as you’ll discover below:
