How to add a Cookie bar on your page with EcomSolid

This article will walk you through steps on how to add a Cookie bar on your page using the EU Cookie bar add-on

What is a cookie bar? 

A cookie bar is a banner located on your page informing your visitors that your store is using cookies. Once they agree to the terms, the banner will be hidden from that customer.

Add the add-on to your page

Step 1: From the EcomSolid Dashboard, head to the Theme Editor or Page Editor.

Step 2:  Access the Library from the top bar of the Editor Page.

 

 

Next, navigate to Add-ons > Trust and Security and look for the EU Cookie Bar add-on.
