Context

Create a website footer item when you need to add information or links to your ecommerce website footer bar.  

Your footer bar is used to contain information that is useful to your customers, but that not all customers need to know.  

Typical examples of website footer content include:

  • Social media links, such as Twitter and Facebook
  • Links to a hiring or careers page
  • Links to your company’s shipping policies
  • Links to your company’s payment policies
  • Links to your company’s terms of service agreement

Footer items are created one at a time.  When you create a new footer items, it is added to the bottom of the list of footer items in the Administration Panel, and appears as the rightmost item in the footer bar on your ecommerce website.  

It is important that you consider the order that your footer items should appear in the footer bar of your ecommerce website before you create them, as you cannot reorder them after creating them.  You must delete the footer item(s), and re-create them.
