Considering that Google is about to start counting mobile friendliness of a website as a major ranking factor, having your store mobile optimized is an absolute necessary. All WixStores come fully optimized for mobile devices, ensuring that you do not miss out on any potential orders and that you do not get penalized from search engines for having a website that is not mobile-friendly.

You can always change around the order of the images in the product gallery, to suit your needs. This is super easy to do. Through the WixStores Store Manager you can drag and reorder your store’s products according to however you see fit.
Individual product pages
