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 homepage.
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.

Your Announcement bar requires text for it to be enabled. To hide the announcement bar, remove any text in the 'Announcement text' field.
Adding a link to the Announcement bar
If you wish to add a link to a Collection, Page, Product or Blog post, you can choose any of these by clicking in the “Announcement link” entry field - this will bring up a list to choose from.
To add your own custom link, just paste it directly into the entry field.
Changing the colors for your Announcement bar
You can easily change both the background and text colours of your Announcement bar, independently.
Simply click on the coloured rectangle next to “Announcement background” or “Announcement text” and this will display a color picker where you can choose a colour which matches your current branding or possibly something which jumps right out at your customers :-)
Remember to click “Save” and you are good to go!
