Announcement bar

What is the announcement bar?

The Announcement bar, a compact section situated at the top of the store, serves as an ideal space for highlighting recent promotions, directing users to certain sections, or conveying brief notices to shoppers. For optimal visibility, it’s crucial that the Announcement bar is positioned as the foremost section within the Header group.

How to set up the announcement bar


  • Open the Theme Editor and find the Announcement bar section in the Header group.
  • Multiple short announcement messages can be added. Click Add Text and use Shopify’s rich text editor to format and style the content.
  • In the Announcement bar settings, set the color scheme, choose the carousel effect and delay.
  • Add announcement text, icon, or image and link to the appropriate page.
