Other retailers using the Polyvore editor on their websites include Republic, a UK retailer with over 80 store locations, and interior design store Decorati.
If you're an online retailer, adding the Polyvore editor to your website is a great way to let your customers visualize how your products will look together. It gets people to interact with your products in a fun & engaging way, encourages them to purchase multiple items, and makes them spend more time on your site.
It's also easy to set up. Just send us a data feed of your products, and we'll provide you with a customizable widget and a snippet of HTML code to drop into your webpage.
If you're wondering whether the Polyvore editor will work well for your site, here are a few things we've learned from previous integrations.
The Polyvore widget tends to work best for sites that have product photos with a plain background. Fancy backgrounds, mannequins, and models tend not to work very well in collages. A plain white background is ideal.
It's also best if your site includes several different categories of clothing (e.g. tops and bottoms), enough for people to make a complete outfit. We've found that most people don't enjoy making collages consisting of only one kind of item, such as a collage made entirely of necklaces.
