Embed a referral widget anywhere on your website where visitors can sign up for your referral campaign.

Before you proceed, take note that:

  • You may need a developer to assist you with this process.

  • Your platform must allow the insertion of an HTML or JavaScript snippet.

  • Steps may vary depending on the store platform you're using.

View this widget live on our official merchandising store!

Note: Your referral campaign must be live for the referral widget to appear.


Embedding the referral widget

  1. On the dashboard, go to Campaigns > All Campaigns > Select your campaign.

  2. Go to Widgets.

  3. In the Referral Widget section, click Copy to copy the code snippet to your clipboard.

  4. Paste the code just before the </body> on your store's page. If you're a Shopify merchant, follow the steps below.

  5. Save the changes.

Shopify

  1. On the Shopify Admin page, go to Online Store and click Themes.

  2. Find your active theme and click Customize.

  3. Click the three-dot menu and select Edit code.

  4. In Layout, select theme.liquid and paste the code snippet at the bottom of the page.

  5. Click Save. Visit your site to test if the widget is working.

Configuring the position of the widget

Switching the location

The widget is located at the lower right-hand side of the page by default. It is possible to move this to the lower left-hand side of the page by specifying the value of the data-location attribute to "left".

Changing the stack order (z-index)

If you have multiple banners or widgets on your store, you can set the z-index value of the referral widget to prevent site elements from overlapping.

For instance, if you have a GDPR consent banner that you want to appear on top of the widget, you can set the zIndex to a lower value.
