Cookie banner

1. What is a cookie banner?

A cookie banner is a notification that appears on a website, informing visitors that the site uses cookies and seeking their consent before collecting any data. It serves as a tool for compliance with privacy regulations, particularly in regions where asking for user consent before collecting data is mandatory for online merchants.

2. How to set up the cookie banner with the Eurus theme?

Firstly, activating the Cookie Banner: Activate the default Shopify cookie banner by following the steps provided here: Configuring customer privacy settings.

After that, you can set up the banner in two ways:

a) Approach 1: Using Eurus Theme's Cookie Banner (Recommended):

Eurus Theme provides advanced customization options for the cookie banner, allowing you to tailor its style, buttons, and message to match your brand identity. To do this, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: In the Overlay group section, locate the Cookie Banner section.

Step 2: Enable the cookie banner feature.
Step 3: Once enabled, you can customize various aspects:

  • Set up the cookie message: Craft a clear and concise message that informs users about your site's cookie usage.
  • If you want to time the appearance of the popup from when a visitor enters the site, use the “Delay” config (measured in seconds). 
  • Configure buttons: Customize the buttons to align with your brand or encourage specific actions.
  • Style adjustments: Tailor the banner's appearance to match your website's overall design.

b) Approach 2: Using Shopify's Banner:

Alternatively, you can create a cookie banner within the Shopify admin. Once set up, this banner will override the theme’s cookie banner by default.
