Have you been approved for RewardStyle and don’t know how to add the RewardStyle plugin to your WordPress blog? To add the Shop My Instagram or Shop the Post widgets to your blog, you must first install the RewardStyle (also known as liketoknowit) plugin. I’m going to show you in a few simple steps how to get the plugin from RewardStyle and activate it on your blog. This tutorial assumes that you have an active RewardStyle account. Feel free to watch my video, or follow my step by step guide below:
In your RewardStyle dashboard, go to My Account > Help Center
When you get to the Help Center, click on the Getting Started button
Next, under the Widgets + Tools section, click on the “See All 11 Articles” link.
Then, click on the RewardStyle Plugin for WordPress link.
Then, in the help article, scroll down to the bottom of the article, where it says WordPress.com. At the end of the article is the link to download the plugin. Simple click the Download link and save to your computer. Make a note of where the file is saved. Many computers automatically save to a Downloads folder, or you may have specified another spot to save it. Just make sure you make a note of where it is saved so you can access it to upload to your WordPress blog.
Now, navigate to your WordPress dashboard. Go to Plugins> Add New and click on the Upload Plugin button in upper left corner.
Find the Rewardstyle Plugin for WordPress zip file (remember from Step 5 where you downloaded it on your computer). Then just double click to upload it to your blog.
When file is uploaded, click the Install Plugin button to install it. Once plugin has been installed, you will be prompted to activate the plugin. This is the final step, and your plugin will now be live and active on your blog.
Remember, the plugin does not automatically add the Shop the Post or Shop My Instagram widgets for you, you need to configure those in your RewardStyle dashboard, then copy the generated code and paste it into your blog. But you must have the plugin installed for any of the codes to work.
I hope this helps you get started using RewardStyle, any questions or comments please leave me a message below!
A very clear step by step guide. Thanks!
Hey Sarah I’m so glad it was helpful! Thank you so much for reading!
Thank you for this nice and easy post! 🙂
Amy I’m so glad you found it helpful! Thank you for reading!
Hey Francesca yes! Unfortunately you cannot use Rewardstyle on WordPress.com, only WordPress.org, or self-hosted WordPress. You can check out my article here on the difference between the two:
But WordPress.com does have a Guided Transfer service if you want to transfer and if you need hosting, you can check out my tutorial here on how to order Bluehost hosting (the best!):
It’s really a much better platform! Thank you so much for reading!
So if I’m using Bluehost and wordpress (and my website is .com), should I be able to install the RewardStyle widget, or do I still need to convert to .org? I tried installing the plugin, but it did not work on my first attempt.
Hey Melissa yes, if your blog is hosted at Bluehost, then you do have wordpress.org (or self-hosted WordPress) so there should be nothing standing in the way of successfully uploading the plugin, once you have uploaded the zip file of the plugin you may also need to go to Plugins > All Plugins and just make sure it is activated. This does not do anything on the blog it only allows you to then add the various widgets you create IN the Rewardstyle dashboard, so if it’s correctly activated it still won’t show anything different on your blog until you start adding your widgets 🙂
Thank you for your help!
This was really helpful! Thank you!
Hi Brooke! I’m so glad! I don’t know why they make it so confusing lol glad it helped, enjoy!
do you have a tutorial on how to add shop the look once the plugin has been already installed and activated?
Hi Paola! I don’t because I’m actually not a Rewardstyle member believe it or not (I’m not a fashion blogger 🙂 but there is a gal on Youtube who has a few really good tutorials of how to set up the widgets that you might check out:
Thank you watching I’m glad it at least helped you get it installed!

How do you add the shop the post Reward Style custom HTML when you are using the classic editor?
Hey Kristen sure thing, so to add any HTML code you can follow Step 8 of my tutorial here:
You just need to switch from Visual to Text editor in Classic Editor and paste in the code. The link here is a tutorial for Shopstyle not Rewardstyle but the code pasting part is the same for both!
Found this while searching for the same info, super helpful. Thank you!
I am so glad Priya! Thank you so much for letting me know!
