Announcement Bar

The announcement bar is the perfect place for promotions or store news.

The Announcement Bar is located at the very top of your page, above your site’s logo and social media icons, giving it a very prominent position on your storefront, catching the eye of every customer who lands on your site.

Because of this strong location, it is the perfect place to engage with your customers and make them aware of the fantastic benefits of shopping with you.

Use your Announcement bar to welcome your customers to your store; let them know of current and upcoming promotions, include language which encourages the buyer to make a purchase.

To add your own custom link, just paste it directly into the entry field:

You can easily change both the background and text colours of your Announcement bar, independently.
