Why We Need a Demo Notice in Your Stores?

Magento 2 demo store notice is a built-in notification with the default content:” This is a demo store. No orders will be fulfilled.” The message will be displayed whenever you switch your store to the demo mode. It helps you clarify to your customers that your store will not process any orders in the meantime. 

The design and style of the demo notice may vary depending on your store theme.

Typically, Magento 2 store owners display the message when:

  • The store is under construction
  • They want to test their store’s functionality after installing
  • They want to test their stores in the demo mode

Change the Magento 2 Demo Store Notice

Sometimes, you want to customize the demo message to make the most out of them. Changing its content helps you convey your message better as well as improve the communication with your customers. 

Magento requires you to manually edit your theme’s file because you can not make configuration from the admin panel. First and foremost, copy file from

vendor/magento/module-theme/view/frontend/templates/html/notices.phtml

Then, put it to:

app/design/frontend/Vendor/YourTheme/Magento_Theme/templates/html/notices.phtml

Afterward, change the notice content “This is a demo store. No orders will be fulfilled.” at line 67 with your prefered message.

Run below command lines to deploy static content:

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
php bin/magento cache:clean
