The HTML Widget allows you to add and edit your own HTML code into your Shop. This will allow you to extend your shop by adding many thirdparty plugins and custom content.

Widgets are small, self-sufficient content blocks that can be added to your shop to offer your visitors more value. Widgets are easy to install and use, making it a great way to improve a website without any programing skills. Designers can directly control the look and feel of the store using widgets as well.
