Creating a Promo Banner

Thanks to the new โ€œPromo Bannerโ€ widget, Shoppy admins are now able to insert a dynamic banner that catches the attention of their customers. The Promo Banner can be used to let customers know about promotions, launches, and discounts.

To add a promo banner: Go to 'App Builder' on your Shoppy Dashboard and click on 'Homepage'Select 'Add Widget', then scroll down and click on 'Promo Banner' to see it added to your lists of widgets.

Remaining on the Homepage, you can customize the Promo Banner by selecting the 'Actions' button. You can choose 'Customize' 'Publish' or 'Remove Widget'. In 'Customize Widget', you can customize your Promo Banner by inserting text to appear on the banner, selecting the font color you would like the text on the banner to appear, and choosing a background color for the banner. Click 'Save' to record your changes, or 'Cancel' to undo them.

You can customize the design of your banner to make it more eye-catching by changing the following elements:

  • Insert banner text

  • Choose whether or not to show a border

  • Select what lateral margin width to use, either selecting one of the options from presets, or creating your own.
