Install on Shopify
Adding a web chat widget on your Shopify store is a quick and easy process. It does not require any coding skills or technical knowledge.
Setting Up for Installation
In order to install a web chat widget on Shopify, you will need the following:
- Access to your Shopify account
- A code snippet for your web chat widget
If you have the channels already connected on the SmartChat Platform and you need to retrieve the generated code snippet, navigate to the Manage Channels section under Settings. Press the respective blue "Edit" button to find the generated script.
Installing on Shopify
Step 1: Log in to Shopify
Log in to your Shopify account and click on "Online Store" on the navigation bar.
Step 2: Click on Edit Code
Navigate to "Themes" section. Here, click on the "Actions" dropdown menu and select the "Edit Code" option.
Step 3: Paste the Script
Copy your plugin script from SmartChat. On the left panel of the Edit Code Page, click the "Sections" folder to expand it. Press the "footer.liquid" section and paste the chat plugin script following the line of "</footer>".
Once you have pasted the script into the appropriate section, press the purple "Save" button on the top left.
