[intro]In this Guide, you’ll learn how to use and configure the EU Cookie Bar feature, which will provide a visual indication to your customers that cookies are being used on your EKM online shop.[/intro] 

Your EKM online shop uses cookies in order to function. Cookies are required to allow customers to add items to the Cart and complete their order. Technically, because cookies are required for an ecommerce website to function, online shops don’t actually need a Cookie Banner, as the cookies used directly related to the function of the shop.

The use of cookies is detailed already in the default text on the Privacy Policy Webpage of your EKM online shop. However, if you are using additional third-party code on your EKM online shop - such as Hotjar for example - you should indicate this on your Privacy Policy too.

You can install the EU Cookie Bar feature to provide your customers with a visual reminder that your EKM online shop uses cookies in order to function. 

Installing the Feature

1. From the Dashboard, click the Features tab:

2. On the Features page, scroll down to the More Features box and click the EU Cookie bar element:

3. You’ll then see the summary page for the feature. Click the green Install feature button on the bottom right-hand side:

4. You then need to tick the box on the far right-hand side to enable the EU Cookie Bar on your EKM online shop:

5. This will reveal a number of different options. You can amend the default wording of the message by amending the text in the appropriate field. You can also amend the colour scheme of the EU Cookie Bar by clicking one of the Colour Picker boxes on the right-hand side:

6. This will reveal a window where you can drag your cursor in the largest portion to change the colour, or add a hex code directly into the Hex field if you want to use an exact colour. When you have selected your colour, click elsewhere on the page to close the window down and move onto amending the next colour:

7. At the bottom of the page, you’ll see a preview, which is useful as you can see what the EU Cookie Bar will display like when you’re amending the colours. When you have finished editing, click the green Save button on the bottom right-hand corner:
