Accessibility for All - We believe anyone should be able to browse the web. That’s why we rolled out improvements to make it easier for people with disabilities to access the content on any Weebly site by automatically adding copy to form fields, alt text to social media icons, titles for embedded multimedia (audio, video, document and flash) and alt text to site logos. These improvements help people that use alternative methods, such as keyboard input, screen readers and specialized software, explore your pages with ease. It’s our priority to make the web more accessible to everyone.

Promote Automations - Upsell customers post purchase and reward loyal customers with triggered emails. Plus, you can now select ‘Best Sellers’, ‘Newest’ and ‘Popular’ product categories in the editor and your email will automatically populate with the correct products.
