Plans: All Plans Platforms: Shopify


AfterShip Personalization allows merchants to add Custom Banner to the checkout page to display important information to customers during checkout. Custom Banner can be set up and customized in the Checkout page section in the AfterShip Personalization admin.

What you’ll learn

In this tutorial, we will show you:

Custom banner setup
Custom banner widget installation

Custom banner setup

Navigate to Smart checkout > Checkout page > Smart content > Custom banner in your AfterShip Personalization admin
Click Edit

A custom banner editor will open with the following settings

A. Status

Convert the status to Enabled for the custom banner to display

B. Display rule

If you wish to display the custom banner to all the customers, select Show to all customer
If you want to display the custom banner to a specific set of customers, select Show to specific customers

C. Conditions

Conditions represent the eligibility criteria of the customers to whom the custom banner will be shown.

The following conditions are currently available.

Cart value=, >, <, ≥, ≤The total value of the product(s) in the cart
No. of products in cart=, >, <, ≥, ≤The total number of products in the cart
Products in cartInclude, Do not includeYou can select specific products to be included or excluded from the cart
Country/regionIs any of, Is none ofCountry or region of the customer(s) to whom the product(s) will be shipped You can select specific countries and regions from where the products will be shipped/delivered or vice-versa
Date and timeIs before, Is after, Is between (Date range), Is recurring (Date range and day frequency)Date and time when the custom banner will *be shown to the customers and when it will end or for long it will run The timezone is based on your Shopify settings

The date and time setting controls when the banner will display to customers based on the merchant's Shopify timezone. For example, suppose merchants have a promotion campaign from June 1st to June 3rd. In that case, they can set the promotion banner to notify customers and ensure it is only displayed between June 1st and June 3rd based on the date and time setting. Additionally, if merchants do not offer customer support from 00:00 to 13:00 daily, they can use the banner to inform customers of this and set the date and time to recur every day from 00:00 to 13:00.

Merchants can set up conditions like

a. Custom banner will be displayed to the customers on the checkout IF CONDITION A and CONDITION B are met (Both conditions should be met)

b. Custom banner will be displayed to the customers on the checkout IF CONDITION A and CONDITION B or IF CONDITION C and CONDITION D are met (Either set of the conditions (A+B or C+D should be met)

c. Custom banner will be displayed to the customers on the checkout IF CONDITION A or CONDITION B are met (Either A or B should be met)

d. Custom banner will be displayed to the customers on the checkout IF CONDITION A or CONDITION B or CONDITION C or CONDITION D are met (Either of the conditions A, B, C or D should be met)

e. Custom banner will be displayed to the customers on the checkout IF CONDITION A or CONDITION B and CONDITION C are met (Either A or B+C should be met)

f. Custom banner will be displayed to the customers on the checkout IF CONDITION A and CONDITION B or CONDITION C are met (Either A+B or C should be met)

If the conditions configured by you are met, the corresponding action would be the custom banner displayed on the checkout page.

Custom banner widget installation

Merely enabling the Custom banner on AfterShip Personalization will not activate the banner on checkout. You need to install the AfterShip Personalization app on the Shopify checkout editor to enable and display the custom banner widget you’ve configured on the checkout page.

Step 1: Enable the widget in AfterShip

Enable the “Custom banner” in the AfterShip Personalization admin and customize its settings.

Step 2: Open the Shopify checkout editor

Select a page where you want to show the banner and click “Add app” in the left panel.

Step 3: Select “AfterShip Smart Content”

Step 4: Select the content type

Click the dropdown menu and choose “Custom banner”.

Step 5: Allow the app to block checkout

Tick the checkbox to ensure your custom fields work properly at checkout.

Step 6 (optional): Include the app in Shop Pay

Tick the checkbox if Shop Pay is activated for your store.

Step 7: Adjust the widget's location

Drag and drop the widget to your desired location in the left panel. Use the preview in the top right to ensure it looks perfect.

Step 8: Save your Shopify theme

Step 9: Hit Save
