Troubleshooting

How do I add Inline campaigns to my BigCommerce site?

If you’re adding an Inline type campaign, you’ll still need to add the HTML Placeholder where you want your campaign to appear on the page.

See our guide for more details on creating and embedding Inline campaigns.

What domain do I enter when creating my OptinMonster campaigns?

When creating your Campaign you can add the domain *.mybigcommerce.com for your campaign to load on. This will allow you to view the Campaign when previewing your site.

If your site uses a custom domain, you should also add your site’s custom domain (the domain used to reach the front-end of your site) in the Publish screen of the campaign builder.
