Message bar

Available from the Professional plan

Display for affiliate traffic

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

The message bar will appear on top of your store, on every page (except the checkout page). You can customize the message to any text you want, as well as edit the font size, text color, or the bar background color.

Simply go to Settings > Advance > Message Bar > Edit the Message settings > Save. You can see the preview right below the settings:

When adding the message, you can also add a tag of {affiliate_name} or {company} to clarify who the customer is buying from. The UpPromote system will replace the tag(s) corresponding affiliate's name and company.

In order to edit the design, please click on the Edit button:

Note: To show the affiliate's company by applying the tag {Company}, be noted that your affiliate registration form needs to contain the field Company.

You can edit/preview the message bar by clicking on the Edit button.

After editing the message bar, don't forget to click Save.
