I am thinking of adding toaster messages as a feedback in an Ecommerce website for small actions, so far I couldn't find an example for using toaster messages in web only for mobile app, and one example from MailChimp

Would be great if you can provide some examples


  • Kogan.com.au will show toaster messages like "Someone near you just bought a Sony TV", I think some travel and booking sites have similar toaster messages. I know at one point Facebook used to have toaster messages like "UserName just commented on your picture" - not sure if they still do this. Is this what you were looking for?

As Toast messages are totally based on activity either created(displayed) by users action or background action/processes. It is best practice to show/display them in a way that users eyes do not have to roll all over the screen.

The Best Locations:

  • Top-Right : Created usually because of users action.
  • Top-Center : Created usually because of users action.
  • Bottom Right : Created usually because of background processes/activity, advertising, chat pop-ups.
  • Anywhere else - Less recommended, as we are just talking due to users action.

Above discussed locations are ordered based on priority from high to low

There are few among many examples i would like to share and are really worth.

Hope! You get what you were looking for.

  • Also be aware of the accessibility implications... it's not impossible to make toast messages accessible, but in general, any message that appears on or disappears from a webpage outside of the user's direct control can be problematic for visually impaired users.

You can find good feedback messages from here: http://codeseven.github.io/toastr/demo.html

Otherwise I can suggest Alerts from Bootstrap: http://getbootstrap.com/components/#alerts
