FAQ

Why the amount left message doesn’t seem to get displayed in the proper position?

Some positions are located inside tables, so it’s necessary to wrap the content in HTML table row tags.
Most probably, these positions will have (in table) appended.
In such cases, the best solution to wrap the content is by using the Wrapper options section.
When it happens, please try to set the Wrap method option as Smart.
Besides that, most likely the Wrap template option should be set as:

<tr><th></th><td>{content}</td></tr>

You can optionally add a column title for the message if you wish like this:

<tr><th>Free shipping</th><td>{content}</td></tr>
