How to install Videoly

There are several methods of installing the Videoly widget on your website.

The Videoly widget can be installed in any online store. Installing the Videoly widget is a simple operation. 

💡We highly recommend placing your Videoly script on all pages of your online store. This will allow you to easily manage content for PDPs and non-PDPs alike. The script will not affect pages that are not configured for the widget.

There are two methods:

1. Direct installation into the platform's product page template 

There are numerous out-of-the-box and customised platforms for online stores such as Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, etc. Some retailers also choose to create their own platform from scratch. Still, installing Videoly is similar for all platforms: you simply have to add our Javascript-snippet (aka the Videoly tag) to your product page template.  This is the recommended way to implement Videoly.

2. Tag managers 

You can also install Videoly directly via Google Tag Manager (GTM). Installing the widget using GTM usually takes around 3-5 minutes.

Adobe Tag Manager is an alternative solution with a process similar to GTM.

💡Some plugins help manage header and footer scripts without modifying the theme's code (if you're using Wordpress, for example).
