Removing an announcement bar in Shopify is quite straightforward. All you have to do is go to the Essential Announcement Bar app dashboard. From there, you’ll see a list of your announcements. Just pick the one you want to remove, decide what you want to do with it and click “Delete” or “Unpublish”. And voila! Your website announcement bar is gone.

We had the same question, and it set us on a little bit of an adventure! We wanted to make it super easy for other Shopify store owners to add a timer to their announcement bar. So, we took matters into our own hands and developed another app: Essential Countdown Timer! This app is specifically designed to effortlessly integrate a timer into your Shopify store announcement bar.

Most store owners choose to place the announcement bar at the top of the page because it’s highly visible there and can quickly grab visitors’ attention. However, with our custom position feature, the sky’s the limit! You’re not restricted to the top or bottom of the page. You can place it anywhere that you believe will be the most effective for your audience. Experiment until you find the spot that works best for your store!

Adding multiple announcement bars to your Shopify store is quite simple. Once you’re in the Shopify Announcement Bar app dashboard, you have the option to create as many announcement bars as your heart desires and position them wherever you see fit on your website. But what if you want multiple announcement bars on one page? That’s where multiple rotating (or sliding) announcement bars come to the rescue. This feature allows you to add multiple announcements, which will slide one after another. It’s a great way to share abundant information in an organized and attractive way.

Yes! You can place the announcement bar on any page you desire, and not just that, you have the flexibility to position it anywhere on the page.

Creating rotating announcement bars on Shopify is now easier than ever and requires no coding skills whatsoever. All you have to do is choose the “multiple rotating announcements” option in your Essential Announcement Bar app dashboard on Shopify. From there, you can customize the content, style, and looks of your announcements to best suit your store’s needs.
