What is an embed code?
An embed code is a snippet of HTML which allows you to place content from other sites directly on your site or blog. The embed code ensures that certain styles, behavior, and copy move seamlessly over when pasted into the code of your site.  
 
Accessing and Copying the Embed Code
The Product Embed Widget can be found on the right hand side of any product page once you have signed in.

From here you can select from three widget types (product card, skyscrapper, banner, or a product card with a countdown until that week's Free Goods expire), preview what the widget will look like life, view the embed code, and, most importantly, copy the embed code.
