Upload Banners for Web Stores (Starter Theme)

Banners allow you to have a rotating or slider image on the home page to give customers additional information or links to content within your store or external sites.

Example: Link to events, company, school, organizations 

NOTE: You will want to make sure your banner size is 900px X 300px

The 'Manage' section of Advertisements will allow you to edit, add, and remove Banners that are associated to the store.
