Adding a Site-Wide Message on WooCommerce

Getting messages out to your website’s visitors is important. You might want to let them know that orders will be sent out after the Christmas period, or that there is a new product in stock. Sometimes these messages are more important than a pop up but you also don’t want to ruin the browsing experience.

If you’ve got a WordPress and WooCommerce powered website, there is already in-built functionality available to add a message that can be seen site-wide. This functionality is called Store Notice – while not the most descriptive, it adds a bar on the top of your website with a message that you can customise to your liking.

How to add a site-wide message (Store Notice on WooCommerce)

  1. Log in to your website, this should take you to the Dashboard
  2. Hover over ‘Appearance’ and click on ‘Customize’ – this will take you to the customisation page for your website
  3. Here select ‘WooCommerce’ from the sidebar
  4. Next select ‘Store Notice’ which should be at the top of the list depending on how your website is configured
  5. Any content you place in this box is made visible site-wide when you click the checkbox to ‘Enable Store Notice’
