The top section of the home page is a store's most valuable real estate. To make the most of it, merchants often use a Slideshow to showcase their most recent deals and top-selling products. With Handy, the slideshow can be used here or elsewhere on the home page. Create up to six slides using this dynamic section, each with its own unique image, message, and call-to-action (CTA).
