Keep reading this article for information on what an embed code is, instructions for accessing the code and inserting it into your blog or website, and FAQs.

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 our Free Goods page after you scroll down past all of the available free goods.

From here, you can select from our widget types (Product Card, Skyscraper, Banner, or Product Card with a countdown until that week's Free Goods expire). Next, you can preview what the widget will look like, view the embed code, and copy the embed code.

Pasting the Embed Code on your Site or Blog 

Now that you’ve copied your embed code, you can paste into the source code of your blog or website. Navigate to the code view on your CMS (finding this will vary by tool, but it is usually labeled as code, HTML, or </>).

Now paste your embed code where you’d like it to appear within your code. Be sure you’re not pasting it within another snippet of code to avoid any errors!

The final product will look like this:
