Buying directly from banners is something we always wanted to achieve. This will take e-commerce and banners, for that matter, to a new level. Let’s take a look at a few embeddable e-commerce elements, that are available for you to use in your banners.
Shopify is great. I personally use it for one of my projects, so it came in handy, for me, to sell my products straight through a banner. You can even display the whole cart, but that’s a bit tricky and it will take you some time to figure it out. For more information about this and how you can customise it, click on these links:

4. Google Play badge
The famous Google Play badge can now be embedded in a banner. This can be really helpful for apps developers and marketers. But bear in mind, Google takes its badge seriously. There are strict rules concerning this badge. For example, you are not allowed to rotate the badge or change its color/shape and if you are planning to run a campaign that will receive over 1 million impressions and you want to display the badge, you need approval from the Google Play Partner Brand team.

5. Steam Buy button
Legend has it, that if a game does not appear in Steam, is does not exist. Whether that’s true or not, we’ve got you covered. If you are a game developer and you use steam to sell your game, you can now embed the buy button in a banner. In order to do that, you have to go on the game you want to embed, copy the number inside the link
and paste it in this line of code. <iframe src=”http://store.steampowered.com/widget/App ID found in the item link” frameborder=”0″ width=”646″ height=”232″></iframe>
Your embed should look like this: <iframe src=”http://store.steampowered.com/widget/311210″ frameborder=”0″ width=”646″ height=”232″></iframe>. Once you did this, it’s pretty obvious. Copy and paste the link into your banner and there you have it.
That’s all for E-commerce. We hope that, this feature that we are so proud of, will truly change the way you display banners and will also open new horizons for your banner ads campaign.
