Marketing Cookies Popup
NitroSell has released a new configuration option allowing your customers to specifically give consent to marketing cookies. If consent is not given, third-party tracking plugins such as Google Analytics or Facebook Pixel will not work.
This is an update to the existing informational cookie popup. We recommend you switch to the updated popup by enabling this configuration option ‘Enable GDPR cookie consent popup’ and disabling the previous version ’ DEPRECATED: Enable GDPR cookie warning popup (v1) ’ .
These changes are mandatory for retailers in Ireland and align with European GDPR Standards; in other EU countries and in the UK this approach is recommended as opposed to required.
This feature is currently available on the alpha and beta branches.
How To Enable The Cookie Popup
Access your WebStore manager and go to ‘Settings’ > ‘All Config Options’ .
Using the search bar provided, enter the following: ’ Enable GDPR cookie consent popup’ or Select ‘Customer’ out of the list of headings.
Set the checkbox for ‘Enable GDPR cookie consent popup’ to either enable or disable the cookie warning.
- Once you have enabled or disabled cookies, select ‘Save’ .
Note: If you disable the cookie popup, it will not be shown at all, and third party tracking plugins will always be enabled.
The Cookie Popup Window
- Users will now be presented with a popup window where they can accept or reject the use of marketing cookies.
- Detailed information regarding the data each cookie tracks and its purpose will be clearly displayed by clicking on the ‘Learn more’ link. You can change the link via the configuration settings outlined in the above section ‘How to enable the cookie pop up’ .
