About Announcement Bar with Stories

Everyone interacts with Instagram Stories and Highlights. Everyone discovers brands through their smartphone. Although today’s eCommerce stores are optimized for mobile, they are not built to what people are used to—social media behavior and social commerce.

Storypop's announcement bar bridges the gap.

It lets you beautifully announce and communicate multiple messages to your audience, including discount codes and free shipping, convert more visitors to new customers, and build a stronger connection with the existing ones. Say bye-bye to your old-fashioned announcement bar.

You can now create visual stories to announce your messages above your navigation menu—similar to Instagram Highlights.

Use our interactive announcement bar to show one or multiple messages in minutes: 1. Choose one of our templates or start from scratch 2. Upload any video, GIF, or image to make your announcement visual (optional) 3. Write your message 4. Customize your bar and make it on-brand 5. Set it live!

This app is really easy to install and use. We love how we can show our instagram stories right on our home page.

I had some issues first but support kindly addressed the problem, I did not receive their emails and I thought they were not answering, so I left a bad review, but they stayed polite and respectful at all time and manage to find a way to contact me and solve the issue that was preventing me of login. I had a small issue with the layout of the pop ups and they did a customization to solve the issue, this was done promptly. So far the app works well and it does what it is suppose to do. Looking forward for the new updates. Thanks to the team for being kind and responsive.
