[intro]In this Guide, you will be able to learn all about Product Overlays and be able to decide whether you would like this functionality on the Product Pages of your EKM online shop. 


A Product Overlay is a characteristic specific to a Theme, where when a visitor rests their cursor on a Product Image as it appears on the Category Page, a summary consisting of the Product Name and Price will appear over the Product Image. This is used on Themes where the Price and Product Name are not displayed directly beneath the Product Image, and instead, appear when the Product has been highlighted by the cursor:
