This app uses our store builder with the blocks architecture. To know more about Store Builder click here.

We add the product-details as a block in our Store Header.

To configure or customize this app, you need to import it in your dependencies in manifest.json.

  dependencies: {
    "vtex.product-details": "1.x"

Then, add product-details block into your app theme, like we do in our Store theme app.

Now, you can change the behavior of the product-details block that is in the store header. See an example of how to configure:

  "product-details": {
      "blocks": [
      "props": {
        "displayVertically": true,
        "share": {
          "social": {
            "Facebook": true,
            "WhatsApp": true,
            "Twitter": false
        "price": {
          "labelSellingPrice": null,
          "showListPrice": true,
          "showLabels": true,
          "showInstallments": true,
          "showSavings": true
        "name": {
          "showBrandName": false,
          "showSku": false,
          "showProductReference": false

Blocks API

When implementing this app as a block, various inner blocks may be available. The following interface lists the available blocks within product-details and describes if they are required or optional.

  "product-details": {
    "required": [
    "allowed": [
    "component": "ProductDetails"
  "addon-details-btn": {
    "component": "*"

The ProductDetails has the required blocks: product-images, product-name, product-price, sku-selector, buy-button, product-description and product-specifications. So, any ProductDetails block implementation created must add these blocks.


Through the Storefront you can change the behavior and interface of ProductDetails. But, you can also make adjusts in your theme app, like Store does.

Styles API

This app provides some CSS classes as an API for style customization.

To use this CSS API, you must add the styles builder and create an app styling CSS file.

  1. Add the styles builder to your manifest.json:
  "builders": {
    "styles": "1.x"
  1. Create a file called vtex.product-details.css inside the styles/css folder. Add your custom styles:
.container {
  margin-top: 10px;
