Creating product badges for certain items is a really great way to grab your customers attention and increase sales! These badges are shown at the top of the product image, and guess what? Its an easy as 1, 2, 3 to set these up!
Product Triggers for Displaying Promotional Badges
There are lots of ways to cause a promotional badge to display for a product. We support the following methods (triggers):
Product Group – matching a product appearing in the selected group. You can setup product groups in the Admin → Products → Groups
On Contract – any product which has a custom price rule for the logged-in customer.
Product Features → Taxable
Product Features → Non standard shipping
Product Features → Eco-friendly
Product Features → Recycled
Product Features → Material Safety Data Sheet
Product Features → Contains hazardous material
Product Features → Warranty included
Product Features → Returnable
Product Features → Not Returnable
Product Features → Eligible for free shipping
You could use them to promote best sellers, new arrivals or even hot offers for example.
Example Setup of Product Badges
Add your badges on Products > Badges
Badges can be assigned to products following 3 simple rules
1. The product is on contract
If an 'item' pricing rule was set in the Pricing module, all products with the price modified by these rules will be labelled as 'on contract'. They will only show on the store as being on contract if you add a badge.
So let's create a badge for products on contract:
Now all products on contract will have the badge applied:
2. The product has a specific feature you want to highlight
Suppose you want to add a badge for all products with the feature Eligible for free shipping enabled (see Product Features while viewing any product in the Admin → Products area as seen here).
Creating a badge for products with the feature Eligible for free shipping:
All products with the feature Eligible for free shipping will be presented with this badge:
3. The product belongs to a group
All products belonging to this group will have the badge applied. For more information on Product Groups, check out this handy article
So, can I choose which badge shows first?
Multiple badges can be applied to the same product. If you want to specify which badge goes on top, you can set the order accordingly:
Let have some fun and go create some badges!
