I want to create an eCommerce site in Webflow. I’ll be using the Shopify plugin for the cart.
The question I have is Webflow the the right tool to build ecommerce pages similar to this one:
I’m worried Webflow is basically only for small sites and/or simple layouts. I have yet to see a complex site with over say 10 or so pages. I also worry it would be very difficult take a page like the one above and make it tablet and phone ready.
Another question I have. If you hide an element from being shown on the desktop, tablet, phone version does it still load in the background and count towards load time and page size? For example say I have a large image on the desktop home page but I hide it for the mobile version. Would the image still load, although hidden from view, on the other devices?
I guess I could do three different product sections and just hide them for each device, correct? As long as there is not a load penalty.
Overall what do you guys think? Is Webflow the right program for me? BTW, I only know basic HMTL/CSS so I am looking for a “visual” designer and I am not interested in Bigcommerce, Volusion, Wix, etc. They are very limiting in their layout options and you have to know code to create a truly custom layout.
Thanks in advance for any/all advice!
