Product Badges

Capital provides badges that appear on product images when there is noteworthy information about the product available.

For example, if a product is sold out, the Sold out banner identifies this.

Below is a reference guide to all available Default product badges and the triggers for when they appear in your shop.

Note that if more than one badges could be applied to a product, the banners prioritise in the following order:

  1. New or Popular

  2. Sold out

  3. Low stock

  4. Percent off

For example, if a product is low in stock, but it is also a popular item, the Popular badges is applied due to the Popular badges’ priority.

Default Badges

The New badge only appears on department pages and collection list pages if the collection’s default sorting method is set to By date: Newest to oldest. You can set a collection’s default sorting method when you are adding or editing the collection.
