By enabling a Popup, you can directly and powerfully communicate marketing messages to your customers, advertise your social media networks, and encourage guests to subscribe to your mailing list.
This popup appears at the bottom of the page upon entering the site, and must be actively interacted with in order to close it.
Within your Shopify admin, go to Sales Channels > Online Store > Themes.
Click your theme, and select Customize.
On the left-hand menu, select Theme settings.
Scroll down to select Popup.
To enable this functionality on your storefront, select Enable popup.
By selecting Enable test mode, the popup will be forced to show on every refresh - this should only be used for editing the popup.
To signify what your popup is advertising, type your Heading into the entry field.
This heading will then appear above your text and any other features enabled on the popup.
Use the Text entry field to input the body of your marketing message.
This text will then appear underneath your heading and above any other features which have been enabled on the popup.
You also have the option to upload an image onto your popup, which can be a powerful way to grab your customers' attention.
To add an image to the popup, go to Image and click Select image. Upload a new image, or select a pre-existing image from your Library or Shopify's Free Images.
This image will then be displayed to the right of the popup, and will be equal in size to the body of the popup.
Using the Days until popup is displayed again drop-down menu, you can choose how often your popup is displayed on a customer's page between visits:
Using the Delay until popup appears slider, you can choose how long it takes for your popup to appear on a customer's page, between 1 and 15 seconds.
