Announcement bar

Learn how to set up a flexible announcement message bar with targeting options

You might add an announcement bar to highlight the following information:

  • shipping information

  • new stock alerts

  • any promotions, such as sales or new gift cards, etc.

These settings are available on Minimog version 5.0.0 onwards. View Changelog
