    Hi, is there a way to add a custom item to the sidebar that I can edit per page individually?

    Out of the box, if I put a widget in the sidebar, it’s the same widget across the entire site.

    I want to have a widget in the sidebar that I can edit the content to be different on every single post. Example, a buy now button with a different link for each product.

    You could use a plugin like Widget Context to display certain widgets on certain pages or posts, but it would likely be really time-consuming to have a different one for every single post. Another option might be the Genesis Simple Sidebars plugin, which allows you to have multiple sidebars and swap them on a page-by-page or post-by-post basis.
