Product Badge

Why do the product badges not display instantly on the page(s)?

In case the badges appear on the related page(s) after a few seconds for the loading site. This is due to the fact that our app will wait for all product images to load first and then add the product labels/badges later.

What is product badge

Product badge is to highlight a key feature or selling point of a product. Most commonly this would be when an item is on sale, but it can also be used to spotlight a key feature of the product itself.

The difference between product badge & label: 

Badges are numerical indicators of how many items are associated with an element (a link) and labels are used to provide additional information about something.

How can I mark a product as “Sold out” using Product Badge feature?

When your products run out of stock, you should notify customers with a badge. This way, they acknowledge that the desired items are not on sale anymore, and no need to wait time on the buying process. 

To mark a product as “Sold Out”, you can follow these below steps:

Choose Badge

In the Text Badge tab

Select pre-designed “Sold Out” badges from the list

Image Badge tab

Tab Upload Badge 

Otherwise, if you want to have more engaging badges, design them your way and upload to your own library. 

Hit the Browse button -> Choose badge from your device

Display Position

In this step, define the “Sold Out” badge position by selecting from 2 options: 

  • Inside Product Image
  • In Product Info Area 

This case, we select the first option


Set up the configuration like below

Choose Product

Finally, choose the product that is currently out of stock

Done! Let’s see how the sold out badge display on the storefront:

What is the largest recommended size for badges?

To set the Maximum Badge Width, go to the Settings section and set the size by dragging the slider. The maximum Badge Width will depend on the percentage width of the product image.  

Trust Badge

What are the benefits of Trust Badges?

The ecommerce industry and websites are growing rapidly, but so are e-commerce frauds. When people shop online, they want trustworthy websites that protect their data. That’s where trust badges come in.

Trust badges make potential customers believe that your website is genuine and safe. By strategically placing them, especially on the checkout page, you can increase trust and reduce concerns about making transactions.

Cart abandonment is a common problem for ecommerce sites, often due to lack of trust or security worries. Trust badges can help decrease cart abandonment by a significant amount.

How to add a Trust Badge with ShineTrust?

To add Trust Badges to your Shopify store, the quickest way is to use ShineTrust.

Please follow the below steps: 

Choose Badge

Firstly, you can select badges from our ready-to-use badge templates in the Library tab.

Or, upload yourself in the Upload section.


In this step, configure general information of the badges and set up them rationally.

Then, see how the trust badges look on the storefront

What is the “Use Block in Customize” position?

 You may find this option in the Badges Position field and wonder what exactly it is.

Once you select this position, ShinePages app will integrate ShineTrust as a widget in its layout. Then, you can define where to display the Trust Badges by dragging & dropping them into the page layout. See the example below:

How to add Trust Badge to the footer of Shopify Store?

As described in the previous section, you can freely set up the Trust Badge position to everywhere in the store. After selecting the Use Block in Customize option, ShineTrust will be connected to the ShinePages. The trust badges then will be set as widgets inside the ShinePages editor. 

No matter it’s Homepage, Product Page, Collection Page, Cart Page or Checkout Page, you have full control over badges’ positions. Add trust badges to the footer? Easy! Go ahead – drag & drop it to the desired place.

How to add Trust Badge to Custom Position?

Another way to customize your trust badges’ position. You can place them anywhere using a small trick of the CSS selector. We record a detailed tutorial here.

Feature Icons

Does Shopify have built-in feature icons?

No, Shopify doesn’t have a built-in feature for feature icons. However, you can add feature icons to your Shopify store by using custom coding or third-party apps. ShineTrust helps eliminate lengthy product descriptions and utilize icons to showcase features effectively. Place the dedicated icon section anywhere in the store.

The feature icons do not display when adding new products to collections

You configure the position of the feature icons, and you decide to display them on product pages. Here, you can filter the products by collections and display icons on these product pages. 

However, the problem is when you add a new product to the selected collection. The feature icons assigned don’t appear. 

In this case, the system does not automatically update. So, you need to open all the created feature icon blocks in the My Activity section. Hit Save again. Then back to the storefront and reload the site. 

Add Feature Icons anywhere in the store

Another way to customize your feature icons’ position. You can place them anywhere using a small trick of the CSS selector. We record a detailed tutorial here

How do I create a sticky add to cart button?

To create a sticky add to cart using ShineTrust, you can follow below steps:

You can change the Name for further management.

Select the main background color with Choose Themes field.

Personalize other fields including Button Text, After Click Button, Button Animation, etc. the way you like.

Define the Display Device by choosing from options inside the dropdown. Set up the Desktop Content Aligns, Desktop Position, Mobile Position, etc.

Finally, decide which portion of the bar will be shown in the frontend of Desktop & Mobile (Bar, Product Image, Price, Variants, Product Name)

Also, you can customize the look of the Sticky Add To Cart bar using the Design & Typography tab.

Sticky Add to Cart - 4

After finish all settings, let’s see the result: 


The Analytics tab lets you track the performance of the Sticky Add To Cart bar. The report data includes Total revenue, Total Views, Clicks, Total Orders, and a graph visualization showing how the revenue changes over time. Besides, you can also filter the report by different duration such as Today, Yesterday, Last 7 days, Last 30 days, Last 90 days, Last Month, or All Time.

Sticky Add to Cart - 8

How to display Sticky Add to Cart Bar in different places on different devices?

Imagine you want to configure the Sticky Add to Cart to stick on the header of the website in the desktop view. However, on the tiny screens like mobile phones, you want it to appear at the bottom. 

So, in the backend, select the position (to the top, or to the bottom) for Desktop & Mobile independently.

Quantity Discount

How to set up a simple Quantity Discount?

Firstly, in the Add Quantity Discount step, head for the Discount settings.

Name the Quantity Discount box, and set up a convincing Heading.

If your products are configurable, check the box next to the Enable Variations for each item field. 

Besides, set the Title, Label, Saving Amount and Total heading the way you want. 

To customize the look of your Quantity Discount, go to the settings inside the Design & Typography tab.

Everything is visual & lets you preview the result right away. 

Then, move to the next section: Select Product to display. You can filter products by collection. Then use the check box to select one by one or all at once. This case, we select this shoe. 

Okay, let’s see how the Discount box displays on the storefront:

What does Selected by Default check box mean?

You can create multiple options for Quantity Discount. For example, you have 2 options of bulk orders that you want to offer your customers.

The first one: 10% off for 2 items. The second one: 25% off for 3 items. 

So, in the backend, you configure 2 different discount boxes. Like this:

The discount option of “Buy 3 get 25% off” comes with the checkbox. Then, this option will be preselected as default in the product page when customers head for checkout. They can deselect and use the other option anytime.

Email Popup

Can I add a button that directs to another page in the email popup?

Currently, we don’t support that functionality in the Email Popup feature. If you want to custom it, contact our support team to get further assistance.

Set up the name for the popup. Select how customers can get code from the popup by choosing from 3 options: Auto Generation, Enter Code Manually or No Coupon. (This case we select Auto)

Then, decide how long the popup will stay at your site, using the Expiration Duration field. 

To show Name & Email fields, tick the checkboxes and custom the placeholder texts. 

Tick the checkbox of Show Sticky Coupon Bar to remind customers about the code.

And finally, check the Show the Sticky Thumbnail to make sure the popup floats whenever they scroll down the site.

Moreover, you can even configure text & display all the stages including Begin Status, Success Status, Sticky Coupon Bar & Sticky Thumbnail.

Things come the same with the Styles tab as you can configure the settings of each Status, separately. 

  • Decide how long to display the Email Popup after accessing the page and how long to re-open it after closing.
