Hi! We have a client site with 100’s of SKUs; we are going to need to use Shopify for easy inventory management. The current Shopify + Webflow integrations would require too much work for on-going management.
However, some pages like the landing page, about the company, and certain other specific pages need a very high degree of design aesthetic. We’d love to use Webflow for these specific pages. We’ve looked into converting the Webflow page into a Shopify page using a converter like https://www.udesly.com
This isn’t ideal since making changes wouldn’t be rapid. Also, the client won’t be able to use the Webflow Editor either (nice upgrade).
So, our idea is to pay for and use Shopify AND Webflow. Webflow could be the main host, and then redirect to a Shop page that goes to a Shopify website (catalogue pages). This could also be handled the other way around -> primary on Shopify (including landing) and then redirect to Webflow for certain pages.
A few questions:
- Has anyone done this? If so, any tips/tricks?
- How will we mask the url domain name if we’re going to redirect using a link? So if I click on “About Us” on the Shopify page, it goes to the Webflow website URL. Easy to do this within Shopify, but how will I mask the webflow URL to simply be www.samplesite.com/about ? Shopify will be connected to GoDaddy for DNS management for www.samplesite.com
- How will we manage the nameservers between Shopify and Webflow?
- Are we overthinking this…?
Any help or advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
