Step 1: Select a badge to place on your website
There are five badges to choose from. Select a small badge with a white or blue background or a large badge with a white or blue background or an HTML text link. Click to select which badge you would like to add to your website or blog. You can see which badge is selected by the light grey border around the chosen badge. Use the HTML text link version of the badge if you don’t want to add an image to your webpage. This badge will link to your store’s own personal coupon page on NerdWallet. Just click on a badge to select it. Here’s an example:
Step 2: Copy the badge code
Copy the code snippet provided. Click inside the text box then copy the text to your clipboard. The HTML code snippet will look similar to this but customized for your store:
Step 3: Paste the code snippet on your blog or website
Paste the code snippet that you copied from Step 2 onto your blog or website in the HTML source code. Paste the code wherever you want on your blog or website – your sidebar, your footer, or anywhere you’d like. The code will show up as the picture badge button or HTML text link that you selected in Step 1.
