Adding a Competition to your Shopify Store

You have a number of ways to add any competition you create to your Shopify store.

Automatically Create a Page

Whenever you build your competition the first installation method allows you to automatically create a page inside your Shopify store with the competition embedded automatically.

This will automatically create a page with the name your specify, we'll set the title as the name of your competition too. You can edit the content of the page in the pages area of your Shopify admin.

Manually Install Competition to a Page

If you manually create a page you can paste in the embeddable widget code that you find on your installation options, you will need to make sure that you select the Show HTML editor to do this.

Add a Tab to Your Store

If you have upgraded to a Business plan & want to install your competition as a tab. Then you will need to insert the tab code before the final body tag in your theme.liquid file.

Uninstalling The Shopify App

Please note that uninstalling the Shopify app does not impact your billing, if you want to cancel you must change your plan back to free in the Plan Settings before uninstalling.
