Adding an Amazon banner ad, Google banner ad or any other HTML banner ad to your Fresh Store Builder store sidebar is easy. In this guide you will learn how to add an Amazon ad to your store.
STEP 1: Login to your Amazon affiliate account and find the ad you want. I scrolled to the bottom of the home page and chose an ad from the Recommended for You options. I scrolled over the Chef Wine Bottle Holder image and clicked on the Get Link.
STEP 2: You will see a page like the one in the below image. Here you can play with the ad background color, title color and price color. I chose to leave everything as is. Please make sure to select the correct tracking ID before copying the code. The ID will let you know where the click came from.
STEP 3: Once you select the Amazon ID and customize the ad colors, you can copy the code.
STEP 4: Next, login to your Fresh Store Builder store and go to: Content–>Add Sidebox. In the SIDEBOX DETAILS you will see the first option that says Sidebox Type. You will change the option from Page Links to Free HTML.
STEP 5: Once you change the Sidebox Type from Page Links to Free HTML, you will scroll to the bottom of the page and paste your Amazon ad code, or any other HTML banner code in the HTML box and click on ADD SIDEBOX.
STEP 6: You will go to the front-end of your store to see the ad. Please note that Google banner ads will not show up right away. You might see a blank box for a few hours before the banner generates.
This is how you can add Google banner ads, Amazon banner ads or any other HTML banner code to your sidebox.
