🧰 Using the Multi-Announcement Bars
Multi-Announcements bars can be created within the Dashboard, and those will be automatically triggered by certain actions. Below is an example of offering a free product based on the ones added to the cart.
In the following steps, we will explain how an announcement for free books can be created.
Navigate to Dashboard > Marketing > Announcement Bars and click on Add New, to create a new one from the scratch.
A new page will open, and you can configure the Cart Notice block there so that the announcement will appear on one of WooCommerce's Pages.
Before styling the notice and set actions, a coupon needs to be configured with a 100% discount for the book.
Fill in the Coupon Name, pick a discount type ( percentage discount ), a coupon amount ( 100 ), check the Allow Free Shipping box if you consider so, and insert an expiring date.
📝 Note: The coupon name must be the same as the coupon code.
You can also configure usage restrictions so that there will be only certain products, categories, or cart total amounts for which this announcement will be displayed.
When everything is done, click on the Publish button.
Now that a coupon is available, the button within the announcement bar can be configured to add the free book to the cart automatically.
Click on the Get OFFER button to open the block settings. Navigate to the Advanced link settings and enable the options ( the first one will generate the second one ). Also, insert a discount code for the offer.
Make sure you set the button link to the desired product.
Other available settings:
The announcement bar can be triggered by certain products added to the cart.
Magic tags can be used to show the product's name that was added to the cart and triggered the announcement bar.
If the product triggering the announcement bar is added to the cart, the offer applies by clicking the button within the notice.
