You may have heard and used notification bar or header bar or stripe whatever you name it. Notification bar is placed at the top or bottom of the page and generally are sticky. This is an excellent way to grab attention of website visitors.
I have used some notification bar plugin and services like Hello Bar, Foobar and Header Bar Domination every plugin or service have their own features and benefits. Today I am going to review MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro, and there is a free version of MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad, honestly speaking I have not used the free version.
I am one of the lucky person who have got to experience MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro before release. I am using this WordPress plugin from few days and have gotten an excellent opportunity to review this notification bar plugin.
MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro WordPress plugin is quite similar to other offerings. As each product has some good and bad things and this applies for MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro too.

Cons of MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro
- As I have used some similar products and services MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro don’t have some features like:
- No option to put custom code, which is useful for text ads, opt-in form etc.
- No option of adding social button. This feature can help to improve social visibility.
- No Twitter or RSS feed integration option.
Overall MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro is an excellent notification bar WordPress plugin. Some missing features are not that important compared to price for example Hello Bar, (Hello Bar is not a WordPress Plugin) which cost $4.95 per month for 100 clicks to $49.95 per month for 7,500 clicks, which is most expensive notification bar. With MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro, you have to make onetime payment and can use on all your WordPress based sites, and you don’t have to pay for clicks like Hello Bar.
If you are looking for suitable notification bar with all essential features at low cost, then MaxBlogPress Stripe Ad Pro can be the best choice.
