Step 1: Select a badge to place on your WordPress 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
To add the badge code to your WordPress, you can add a Widget to your blog by going to the Appearance menu and selecting the Widgets menu option.
Click Text Widget and drag it to the right and drop it into the Default Sidebar column.
Click “Text” and drag it.
Drop “Text” into the Default Sidebar.
Paste the HTML code snippet into the text box and click the Save button.
And you’re done! Your new badge is ready to go!
Once you added the code snippet to your blog or website, enter the URL where you put the code in the Badge URL text field:
Step 4: Test your badge
Once you are finished with step 3, tell us the URL where you put the badge code from Step 3. Then click the “Test Now” button to test that adding the badge button to your website worked.
If adding the badge button to your website worked, you will receive a “Successful!” message. Then click “OK” to continue.
Now, you can go edit your coupons to add an image and up to three tags to each coupon and enjoy all the other new feature available to you that all result in increased exposure for your store and your coupons! Thank you for spreading the word about your store’s coupons!
Add a Regular Link
If your blog or website does not let you edit the HTML or if you would prefer not to add a button badge to your website, you can link to your coupons using a regular link by selecting the “I’d rather add a regular link” hyperlink.
Step 1: Tell us where you’re putting the link
Enter the URL of the location that you are adding the link.
Step 2: Copy your coupon page URL
Copy the URL provided – that’s your own store’s coupon page on NerdWallet.
Step 3: Add the link to your site and test it
Add the link to your blog or website the way that you are familiar with adding a link to your website. This linking method may differ between different blog and website platforms. Test that adding a link to your website worked by clicking the “Test Now” button.
If adding the link to your website worked, you will receive a “Successful!” message. Then click “OK” to continue.
