With the Charge theme, there’s no need to add apps to show a popup banner. You can use the popup within the template functionality to announce events and boost sales.
To show a popup banner, visit Online Store - Homepage and click on the Overlay section in the sidebar. You can add multiple popups with different settings.
For instance, you can create a popup with a newsletter subscription form. The popup appears once the page is loaded.
Then you can make a second popup appear on exit intent. It will engage the customer to make his first purchase. In the popup, you may offer a promo code with a discount or some free gift for new customers. You can also add a third popup. For example, you plan to upgrade your site, so you have to inform all visitors that your website will be temporarily unavailable in the future. Basically, the Charge theme for Shopify offers many options.
It is interesting that the popup is not limited to only text or text with images. You can upload just an image (and set a link to some product/collection). For example, to celebrate Independence Day, you can show a gorgeous picture created to your liking and invite visitors to check out your new collection of special items.
When you configure the popup according to your requirements, it is available to:
- Specify the text for the popup in a text editor. Here you can add headings, links, bold text, etc.
- Show a “Subscribe to Newsletter” form.
- Add the image for the popup banner.
- Set the link to the image.
- Set the condition when the popup appears. You can show a popup Immediately and On exit intent.
- Set the popup banner frequency. The possible values are Once per day and Once per week.
Note: A popup will be displayed until the visitor clicks on the close button (X). Once a visitor clicks close, the action is stored in the browser's local storage. Now pay attention to the popup option "Frequency". If the popup has a frequency of "once per day" and the visitor closes it with an X button, then the next time visitor can see it only the next day. The same condition is for frequency "once per week". Next time visitors can see the popup when the current week ends.
Note: Once you change a popup block settings all data about it are reset for all visitors. And popup will be shown for visitors even if he/she closed it earlier.
By the way, you may add a blur overlay to highlight other parts of the page. Read the article to learn more.
