What are content zones? How do I use them?

Content zones are tags which you place on your web shop, Facebook and eBay pages which will display content. Usually it’s used to create holiday messages, terms and conditions, shipping options and etc.

Content zones makes it easy to simply add a tag into a source code of a page or listing design template on eBay to be displayed across all pages or listings.

Best of all, if you need to update the information, it’s stored in one location and is simple to update.

To add a new content zone

  1. From the Neto dashboard, navigate to Webstore > Content Zones and click Add New.

  2. Enter a unique Zone Name / ID. This is what you will use to reference the contact zone.

  3. In the Content section, you can enter HTML code by clicking on the Source Code tab or click on the WYSIWYG Editor to enter the content and it will generate the code for you. Once done, click Save.

  4. Use the following tag anywhere in your templates or content pages for the content zone to show up:

[%content_zone id:'ZONEID'%][%end content_zone%]
