Today we’re excited to announce a bunch of new features for RocketAmp that will keep your mobile pages fast, add more performance, look better, and of course stand out in Google SERPs . Many of them are things that you all have asked for, and a few of them are things that we think you would like. In short, we’ve added 7 (yes, seven!) new features that you can use to make your Accelerated Mobile Pages site more like your non-AMP Shopify pages. Most of these features can be accessed from your dashboard at admin.getrocketamp.com if you're already on professional - and you can now even upgrade to professional with just a couple of clicks as well! Read on to see what we've been building for you!
Better variant support (free!)
This is our most requested feature and while initially it was a limitation of AMP - our dev team has been able to take advantage of new cutting edge components to make it work across ALL RocketAmp sites! As a result, you will now have multiple dropdowns to help users narrow down their product choice. Before, users had to sort through one list of various attributes but now they can pick multiple options each with their own dropdown. For example, customers can pick colors separately from sizes and quantity.
Product Reviews (paid feature)
Social proof is important when it comes to making purchasing decisions - it’s what your customers use to help validate the quality of their purchases. We’re now able to help your customers see this important information with the addition of Product Reviews. Currently this works for Shopify Product Reviews, Feefo reviews, and a handful of other integrations. If you want to know if your specific integration is supported, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. These reviews also show up in Google search!
Sticky Banners (free! - requires professional)
We noticed many of you have banners at the top of the page to tell users there is Free Shipping or to give them important news. You can now have those banners on your AMP site as well to help increase conversion. Just go to the dashboard, click on premium settings, and add your text and a link (if you have one) to the ‘Top Banner’ section. You can even make this standout by customizing the colors for the banner individually.
Google Font support (free!)
Previously we supported a dozen or so fonts so that you could have some font customization over how your site looks. We’re proud to now support over 850 fonts from Google Web fonts. You should now have no problem matching the exact font you’re using on your main website or theme.
Two Column Layout (free!)
You will now get two column layouts for your collection pages. Many mobile sites user two columns so that users can see more products per page but still have large enough images. This is now activated for all sites by default.
Youtube Video Support (free!)
Do you have products that use YouTube demonstrations, or do you have YouTube embedded in your blog posts? If so, then this feature is for you. RocketAmp now supports embedded YouTube videos to help show off your products and enhance your blog pages. This is automatically supported as soon as you activate.
Similar/Related Products (free!)
At the bottom of many product pages we see a Related Products module that helps keep visitors on the site longer and shop for more products that might fit their needs. We want to support your efforts to help customers find new and awesome products so we’ve excited to now include this module by default on your RocketAmp site.
Finally, its super easy to upgrade to our professional plan and take advantage of all of our new features! just go to admin.getrocketamp.com, click on Upgrade at the bottom of the page, accept the new terms, and you'll be ready to go with a bunch of great new features as well as more customization options and a custom domain!
