So you've got a Shopify store and you want to use Subscribers? Good news! We can help you make it happen if you follow these simple steps: 


STEP 0: PREREQUISITES 

To install Subscribers.com you're going to need to use the Shopify "Edit Code" feature. It may look a little scary but we'll walk you through it!




STEP1: If you don't have a Subscribers account yet, Head on to Subscribers.com to start your account by selecting the option to install Subscribers Shopify App.

If you already have an existing account and you want to add your Shopify website, simply click on the "Add Site" and select the option to Add Shopify Store.


Both processes will lead you to download the Subscribers app from the Shopify App Store.



STEP 2: ONCE THE SUBSCRIBERS APP IS INSTALLED. NAVIGATE TO THE "EDIT CODE" SECTION OF YOUR SHOPIFY SITE

Login into your Shopify site and navigate to the "Edit Code" section. Currently that's located by following this path: 


Themes > Actions > Edit Code


For the visual types, here's what getting to this section looks like: 


 (Click on "Themes")







(Click that "Actions" button)






(Select "Edit Code")









STEP 3: PASTE THE SUBSCRIBERS CODE INTO YOUR SHOPIFY SITE


Now that you're inside the Edit Code section of your Shopify site, we're going to paste your subscribers code snippet into the proper file in a particular spot. First, from the list of files on the left-ish side of your screen, select "theme.liquid". There will be a bunch of files that kind of sound the same, but make sure to select theme.liquid








After you click that file, scroll down to the bottom of the file and look for the </body> tag. It should be at or very near the bottom of the file. 





Now paste the following code just BEFORE that </body> tag: (DON'T PRESS SAVE YET THOUGH!)



<script type="text/javascript">
  var subscribersSiteId = 'ENTER SITE ID HERE';
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.subscribers.com/assets/subscribers.js"></script>



(The code should go right where this arrow is pointing - BEFORE the </body> tag)





STEP 4: BEFORE YOU PRESS "SAVE", UPDATE THE SITE ID IN THIS SCRIPT

The last thing we need to do is to update that part of the script that says "ENTER YOUR SITE ID HERE". Let's find your site ID. 


If you're signed into Subscribers.com, you should be able to visit this url and find your "Site ID" near the top of the screen. Copy that Site ID and then add it into the code that you just pasted into your Shopify site where it says "ENTER SITE ID HERE". So you want to completely remove that "ENTER YOUR SITE ID HERE" code (BUT KEEP THE QUOTATION MARKS THERE - SUPER IMPORTANT) and replace those words (not the quotation marks) with your site ID that you coped from Subscribers.com



STEP 4: PRESS SAVE

Don't forget to press the handy "Save" button on the top of your Shopify site page before you close your Shopify site code editor: 


(PRESS THAT SAVE BUTTON!)




STEP 5: VERIFY YOUR SITE IN SUBSCRIBERS

Go back to your Subscribers account and click on Settings then click on Install Code.


Then Scroll down to the bottom and click on Verify installation.
