1) Install the ViralSweep BigCommerce App

First, you need to make sure you install the ViralSweep app to your BigCommerce store. You can install it here: https://www.bigcommerce.com/apps/viralsweep/

2) Install campaign to your store

Next, click the Install button on your campaign in ViralSweep. On the full page or widget, click the dropdown menu and choose BigCommerce. Then click the install button and a menu will pop up.


In this menu, simply type in a page name, and we will automatically install the promotion to that page.

Please note, we cannot install to an existing page. If a page already exists that you want us to install to, delete it first, then go through the process to automatically install it. If you want to install to an existing landing page that already has content on it, you will need to manually copy the code we provide and paste it into your page.

Additionally, we cannot automatically install the lightbox to an existing page. Please use the instructions below to install the lightbox.


Lightbox Installation

1) Copy ViralSweep Code

From within your ViralSweep account click Install on your campaign, then copy the code for the lightbox.

2) Edit your template files

Navigate to your BigCommerce dashboard and go to Storefront > Template Files. Find 'default.html' and click edit.


3) Paste in your code

Paste in your ViralSweep lightbox code before the closing body tag if there is one, otherwise put it at the end of the file. If you want the lightbox to show up on every page instead of just the homepage, click on the footer file on the left side and add the code there instead.


4) You're done!

Navigate to your site and you should see the lightbox. Keep in mind, the lightbox functions on cookies, so if you view it once, then close it, it will not display again. If this happens, try viewing your site in a different browser.
