To display ratings, please note that the theme itself cannot provide a built-in review feature. You'll need to use an app for this functionality. Once you've integrated the app, you can use app blocks to show ratings, stars, and the number of reviews for each product. 

Some review apps compatible with Eurus theme include:

  • Judge.me
  • Shopify Product Review (deprecated)

Additionally, if you encounter compatibility issues with other review apps during use, please contact our support for assistance. We are happy to assist you!

15. How to show a Back-in-stock alert?

This feature allows customers to subscribe to notifications when a product becomes available again after being out of stock. It's handy for customers who are interested in purchasing a product that's currently unavailable.

In the Eurus theme, you can choose how the back-to-stock alert behaves. It can either show by default regardless of the stock status of the product, or only appear when the product is unavailable, based on your settinguration (Use "Only show when product is unavailable" setting).

Admins can customize the text and message displayed when customers subscribe to the back-to-stock alert. This allows for personalized communication with customers who are interested in the product.

After customers subscribe, the store owner receives an email notification about the subscription. However, it's essential for the admin to manually send an email to customers when the product is back in stock, as the theme doesn't handle this automatically. You can integrate with email automation systems such as Klaviyo for further customization.

This adds a personal touch to their orders, making them suitable for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays. Additionally, it can serve as an additional revenue stream for the store, as customers may be willing to pay extra for this convenient service.

Setup Instructions:

  • Add the "Gift wrap" block to the product page.
  • Checkbox Display: Once added, a checkbox will appear, allowing customers to opt for gift wrapping.
  • Admins can configure the label of the heading in the block according to their preferences.

  • Text with icon: Ideal for longer texts, this block allows you to include custom icon images, adjust icon size, style text and background, and customize the overall appearance.
