Not even loading. Looking at the reviews, it seems like this is a crippled choices (take note developers)!!
I have come across so many issues with the new implementation of the buy button.
I've been back and forth with support, requesting a simple answer as to how I can make the button direct to the checkout page in the SAME tab / window, rather than opening a new window over the page, and my point has been completely misunderstood, and I'm left with a bad UX now.
For reference, here's a video recording I did of the issue. Pretty easy to understand I think, but still can't solve a simple issue: https://www.screenmailer.com/v/Dy03dCwJxuagByM
This is pretty much obsolete now that we can't embed the whole store. Please bring it back!!

I just updated this review after receiving help from a Shopify associate.
This app does work, I'm quite glad it exists, it's free, and the Shopify support was good. However, it's a whole lot of copying and pasting and mussing about just to get a few products up on a particular post. As another reviewer mentioned, there is an app for Etsy listings of this same nature that simply connects your accounts and *presto*, it gives you the option of short codes for any product or collection that you can insert into any post right there, and it's also free. It's rare that Etsy has better apps than shopify, so I was disappointed. Moreover, judging from other reviews, this app used to allow for more and easier integration; so what a bummer that it has changed. . . BUT hey, I really needed this and am glad for it such as it is.
To insert a grid (i.e. to be able to list multiple products in a row), follow the CSS instructions here:
I sell more than one product, thus I need to embed more than one product.
PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD WIDGET!!! You have made my external site obsolete. Just allow us to use the old code again. PLEASE!
Please return Shopify Widget. This replacement is severely lacking.
It shows all product variants when we have some which are only for Wholesaler customers!
The old Shopify widget looks great - too bad it's dead
Buy button is useless because there is no way to customize beyond a few options:
Change button size, color, destination? Sure
Want to embed a product page? Nope
Want to open the cart page in the same window? Nope
Embed a collection? Nope
Anything else? Nope
Just for for added fun, it loads slowly - holding up complete page rendering on an otherwise fast site.
I see two uses for this app: (1) discouraging people from embedding shopify on other platforms (2) Encouraging people to learn the shopify API or hire shopify experts
