How To Use Product Badges Manager

Welcome to your Ocean eComm Treasure Box!

The Product Badges Manager is a new feature, available as of Ocean eComm Treasure Box 1.2.0. And, as of Ocean eComm Treasure Box 1.4.0, besides textual badges, you'll be able to add image type badges and choose between multiple built-in libraries for all sale intents and purposes.

With the Product Badges Manager you can create as many product badges as you like and style them independently. Likewise, you can apply them to single products, or entire product categories or tags per need.
