Message bar

For your customers, buying through an affiliate link is sometimes confusing, they might browsing your site while having no idea who they are actually buying from. That's when you should add a message to let your visitors know from whose link they are accessing your store.

The message bar will be shown on top of your Shop, on every page (except the checkout page). You can customize the message to any text as you wish, as well as edit the font size, text color, bar background color.

Just go to Settings => Message Bar => Edit the Message setting and Save your change, you then can view the preview below the settings:

When adding the message, you can also add a tag of {affiliate_name} or {company} to clarify who the customers buy from.

Note: To apply the tag {Company}, be noted that your affiliate registration form needs to contain a field called Company.

Plus, you have an option to show a message to your customers if they DON'T buy through an affiliate link. This section helps you to remind your visitors of accessing the site through a referral link (it works especially when you work with a non-profit organization):

After adding the text, click Save changes and you can preview the message bar on the Preview section below or test it on your live site.
