OptinMonster can work with any website. The best lead generation tool works on BigCommerce too! This guide will show you how you can integrate the power of OptinMonster into your BigCommerce site.
Step 1 – Create and Publish a Campaign
The first step is to create a campaign and retrieve it’s embed code. See this guide on how to embed your campaigns on your site for a step-by-step walkthrough if you need assistance.
Step 2 – Paste the Embed Code into Your BigCommerce Site
Log into the admin of your BigCommerce site. Next, click Storefront Design.
On the following screen, you need to click My Themes.
On the next screen, select Edit HTML/CSS from the Current Theme section.
If you’re using the Single Account-wide Embed code, and you’re adding a popup type campaign (Lightbox, Fullscreen, Mobile, Floating Bar or Slide-In) you’ll edit only the default.html.
Paste the embed code you previously copied at the bottom of the theme file just before the closing
</body> tag and Save your changes.
What about Inline Campaigns or Campaign Specific Embed Codes?
If you’re adding an inline type campaign (After Post / Inline or Sidebar), you’ll add either the HTML Placeholder (if using an Account-wide Embed) or the entire Campaign Specific Embed where you want your campaign to appear on the page.
You’re all done! You can now navigate to the front-end of your BigCommerce site and test your beautiful new campaign!
