What do you mean, you can't choose reference in the dashboard? And how is the code above related to your problem??

Are you trying to write the webshop module from scratch, or did you try the source code provided in the guide?

Did you enable the feature?

It should be listed (if you have enabled the feature) when adding a new widget. Does the widget appear under your content types?
