Step 4. Once you’ve configured your new widget according to your preferences, go to the Install tab and follow our instructions to install it on your website. You can install it via code snippet or one of our plugins – select your preferred option and follow the steps defined in the app or email our instructions to your webmaster.
Note: Please make sure to copy the correct code snippet or API key, and enable your popup widget in the app when installing it on your site. Also, if you are using multiple widgets on your site, make sure our popup notification does not overlap with one of them. You can easily change the widget’s position in your Easy popup > General tab.
