The Product goal section displays the progress of a campaign, tracking your product sales in real-time. When you enable this section, it can appear in three places: as a section on your home page, as a section on your product page, and as a banner at the top of the page.
In order to add this home page section, the Theme settings for the Featured product and Product goal must be configured.
Add a Product goal section to your home page
- In the theme editor (Customize), click [+] Add section
- Locate Product goal
- Click the section, then Add
Set up the theme settings
Start by assigning a product to your Featured product under the Theme settings, using the Select product button.
With your Featured product set, navigate to Theme settings > Product goal.
Start by checking the Enable box at the top. Then select your Background style (Light, Color, Gradient, and Default), and input your Button text and Estimated delivery text. The button will link to the Product page of the Featured product set.
Configure the goal quantities
Add your Starting quantity and Goal quantity. Then set the End date and time.
To start your progress at 0%, enter a Starting quantity equal to your featured product's current inventory. If you have already made pre-sales, enter a number higher than your featured product's inventory to account for the progress you've made.
Your Goal quantity is the number of sales/pre-orders you'd like to make before funding is completed. If you want your product goal to show units sold instead of money raised, you can check the Show product goal as quantity box.
End date and time
At the bottom, you'll set the End date and time for your goal. Note that the mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm format is required. This is for the countdown on both the featured product's product page and the banner (displayed on every page except the homepage).
