Product Labels app – A must-have app (QnA)

In the blog, we are glad to respond to questions regarding to another must-have app for Shopify stores as it helps you personalize your products with any image, not just the stock images on the app. It is Product Labels from Secomapp.  A round of applause to get started now 🙂
1. How to hide the labels in Product page or Collection page?
You can hide label on product page or collection page by adding css in product Image “display:none”. Make sure you uncheck (untick) the “Use this image for both Product page and Collection page…” & save it first, so that you can add css for only Product Image or Collection Image then.
2.  Can i add a label which contains texts only?
You can use a transparent image while creating the label. Then the label will have text only.

3.  How can I create a sale label only for products which have a discount equal or more than 20%?
Please follow the steps:
– Set value of field “Minimal discount percentage” at the section “On Sale Condition” in Settings page to “20”
– Set value of field “Is On Sale” at the section “State” in Condition tab of label to “Yes”
4.  How can I create a new label only for products which were published 10 days before today?
Please follow the steps:
– Set value of field “Use” at the section “Is New Condition” in Settings page to “Days threshold”
– Set value of field “Is New” at the section “State” in Condition tab of label to “Yes”
5. Does this app have a label showing how much percentage is being taken off? (For example, 20%)
You can see the specific instructions through the guidance video at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1wuxzjD-d84YTFtdUM5WFZ5Rm8/view

Free Gifts – A powerful app for running promos

In this blog, we would like to untangle some knots about Free Gifts.
1. I want to display only the gift items with the price less than the certain products. How can I do this?
Please activate the “Gift item’s price condition” setting via Setting page (Gift item’s price should be less or equal to the product’s price customer added).
2.  I created a rule for a free Gift Card but I’m not seeing that it worked for our orders.
Currently, we can’t set the product type:Gift Card as a free gift because Shopify does not allow us to discount that product type. If you want your gift as a Gift Card, you are supposed to create a new product like Gift Card (not choosing the product type as Gift Card).

 

christmas-is-here

3. How can I manage the inventory of a product when it’s a gift?
Just Enable the “Synchronize products” setting via Setting page.
4. Why does Free Gifts app not allow to  have a product with more than 50 variants as a gift?
The reason is that Shopify framework has set the limitation for the 3rd app like us as maximum 100 variants/product. When we clone new variants inside one product as a gift item with more than 50 variants, it is impossible to insert enough gift variants.
We suggest that you separate the products into 2 or more products. For example, with the product as “B.A.P Bunny Sweatshirt”:
(https://the-kdom.myshopify.com/admin/products/8769097347),
you are able to separate it into 6 extra products for each shirt like: youngjae, yongguk, jongup, himchan, zelo, daehyun.

Currency Switcher – No wonder anymore! (QnA)

In this blog, a series of questions relating to Shopify Currency Switcher will be resolved quickly by Secomapp Team. Any more troubles, please #AskSecomApp at support@secomapp.com. We love to hear from you!
1. Why can currency not be converted at “checkout”?
We understand that it would be much convenient when customer can check out in his own currency. However, Shopify doesn’t allow us to change currency or price at checkout. At checkout, only product price at original price in shop base currency is accepted.
One solution that we can do for you is adding a notification about this restriction in cart page so that your customers will be aware of it.
Another solution that we would like to suggest is that you create different shop(s) for each currency. Our app will help redirect customer to the corresponding shop.
2. Where does Secomapp get the exchange rate?
We adapt the live exchange rate from Shopify at the time one customer requests a page.  And Shopify itself updates the rate from xe.com a few times per day.
3. Can we add “custom exchange” for a currency?
Yes, we can. However, we don’t activate this feature by default. We will implement it once requested.
The reason we don’t do it by default because the exchange rate does not affect the final price customer has to pay. Shopify will use the original price at checkout
4. Can we set a custom exchange rate for one currency and let the other ones use Live exchange rate?
Yes, you can. First you are supposed to request us to activate the feature of custom exchange rate. After that, please go to app admin: at tab Exchange Rate: Untick Use Service rate, then update the exchange rate for the currency you choose. Let the others empty so that we use Live exchange for theme.

5. What i need to do when i want to change shop base currency?
First please make sure that you add wrapper <span class=money></span> in currency format (check out Setup Instruction). Then
you should go to app admin and Publish to Shop again.
6. Can we configure product price decimals (or round price)?
Yes, you can. At the tab Currency Format, please change the all {{amount}} to {{amount_no_decimals}}. Remember to save & publish to shop again.
7. Can we have flag next to currency in currency switcher?
Yes, we can easily customize it for you.
8. How  could I know whether or not the currency has been automatically switched ?
You can search for your shop here at https://geopeeker.com/?  You can also add some currencies supported by the website.
9. How do i sort the currency in switcher?
In Preference tab, make sure you choose only shop base currency. Then you add one currency at a time, and save before you add the second currency. The first currency will be displayed first in the currency box.

Banner slider – Above and beyond your expectation(QnA)

Banner slider – one super easy-to-use app – helps you impress your Customers with eye-catching lively images right on your e-store.  Banner Slider is a great app that allows uploading, customizing and showing a series of banner as sliders. In this blog, several confusions left will be cleared out.
#AskSecomApp
1. Is there any limit in the number of images per slide or number of sliders that i am allowed to add to my site with Banner Slider?
No, there is not. You are free to have as many as you want. Only one notice is that you are not supposed to add 1 slider twice on 1 page.

banner-blog

2. Why does the sliders look not natural on our site?
If you use full width slider, you should choose the correct slider height so that the app can always displace it nicely on all devices or on any screen resolution.
The formula is the slider height = image height * 1300/ image width.
3. Can I add different sliders for each collection?
Yes, you can. You should add sliders to the collection description, which helps you have different sliders on various collections. Whereas the same slider(s) will show on all collections once you add slider embedded code in collection liquid.
4. The Slider is not responsive on mobile or tablet?
Please make sure the embedded code you copy & paste doesn’t have additional tags. Normally, if you copy the html embedded code and paste to product description or collection description, there are some additional tags which are added. And the tags will make the slides not responsive. You should re-check the back-end store by opening the product description in html mode and removing any tag which wraps the embedded code.
Sometimes the location you add the slide(s) may make the slides not responsive as well, in this case please contact us, we will check and fix it for you.
Feel free to drop us a mail for any troubles you have using the Banner Slider at support@secomapp.com
We love to hear from you! #AskSecomApp

QUICK VIEW – A free ride but the Best one (QnA)

When you access the huge app store of Shopify, Quick View might quickly strike you as one app in a gleaming bright yellow coat which is always on the top position of the hot Sales deck.
It is Quick View that is the first app to be developed by Secomapp Team with constantly increasing installations daily. Amazingly, this is also the most favorite app with over 700 positive reviews already.
More advanced features for the app are included/upgraded through time. However, the original version still remains free with essential ones, which still offers the unchanged benefits for all customers with limited budget like the very beginning days: Simply giving your customers a quick access to product preview in one click without reloading the whole site.
Free or not, Secomapp Team are always willing to back you up unconditionally. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding Quick View app:

  • How to remove zooming feature?
Please Open file Assets/sca-quick-view.css and insert the following css block: .zoomContainer{ display:none !important }  
  • My variant’s image didn’t change when options were selected
We are afraid that the feature does not include in the free original version. Please upgrade to a higher plan, the situation will be auto-fixed right away.

  • Why does Quick View not display on mobile?
Quick View free version is disable on mobile. Only Basic version starts to be mobile-friendly.
  • Why does product’s description not format and look ugly?
Free version only supports normal text. Upgraded versions will help you deal properly with html/css.
  • Is Quick View multilingual?
