About Free Notification Bar Messages

How does this app work?

The Free Notification Bar Messages app is a simple, beautiful and highly functional message builder for your Shopify store. It enables the display of targeted popups and notification bar messages throughout your Shopify store.

Message Builder

The message builder itself is split into four sections:

Message Editor:

The editor is the block at the top of the screen. In it, you can type or paste in the text you’d like to display in your message. Content can be supplemented by using the buttons below to insert dynamic content, emojis, website links, or bolded text. Options for dynamic content include automatically pulling in your shop name or the variant inventory quantity of the product the message is being displayed with.

Messages can have a set number of conditions applied to them in order to control where and when they will display. Condition options include:

  1. Variant inventory quantity: is less than, is equal to, is greater than
  2. Collections: is in, is not in
Message Status:

Message status controls whether a message is published or not on your store. Status options include:

  1. Active: The message is published and will display on your store wherever the visibility conditions required are met.
  2. Draft: The message is not visible on your store and can only be accessed from the back-end.

The settings control where your message is displayed and how it looks when the conditions for display have been met. The options include:

  1. Enable snackbar message: The popup Snackbar type floats along the bottom of a page
  2. Enable inline message: Inline shows wherever you insert the app embed block.

Messages Overview

The messages overview displays a complete list of all active and drafted messages created on your store.

Adjust the priority with which messages are displayed on your store by dragging-and-dropping messages using the icon along the left-hand side of each row.

Or, click the three dots on the right-hand side to move it up, down, to the top, or to the bottom. Edit and Delete controls also exist in this menu.
