How to Add Banners to Your Store

TomatoCart supports banners to be posted at store front-end. The Banners box module is available at:

After unzipping the package, there are three directories in it:

  • Admin
  • Includes
  • Templates

You just need to copy the three directories into your web root directory where your TomatoCart is installed.

Create Banners

First of all, you need to create the banners under Admin Panel->Tools->Banner Manager. In this module, you can create your own Image or Html Text Banner.
