How to install widgets on Shopify

We have created a dedicated Shopify app, so it's very easy to start using Getsitecontrol on Shopify. The app will link your site to Getsitecontrol and allow you to create and edit widgets in the Getsitecontrol dashboard with the results being applied in real time. The app needs to be installed only once.

Here’s how to install Getsitecontrol app on a Shopify store:

1. Install the app itself

Log in to your Shopify dashboard, find the Getsitecontrol app and click on Add app.

Then in your Shopify dashboard, you only need to confirm it by clicking Approve to proceed.

If you’re not a Shopify Online Store 2.0 theme user, then that’s all you need to do: the app is installed now, and you can start creating the widgets.

But if you are, go right to the next part.

For Shopify Online Store 2.0, you also need to activate the app itself after installation. In your Getsitecontrol dashboard, you’ll see the App is inactive indicator. Click on it.
