Are you lucky enough to have been approved for Rewardstyle, also known as liketoknowit? If so, you might have some questions about how to add the popular Shop the Post widget that can appear in a blog post or widget. My step by step tutorial shows you how to create a Shop the Post widget where you can add affiliate links and earn commissions from purchased products. This tutorial assumes that you already have a Rewardstyle account, and also that you have installed and activated the Rewardstyle plugin on your WordPress blog. If you need help installing the plugin, you can click to view my tutorial here.

Step 1:

Once you go to rewardstyle.com and log in, navigate to Apps > Shop the Post. This will take you to the Shop the Post widget setup.

First, you must add products to your folders so that you can add them to your Shop the Post and other widgets:

You can go to the Products tab to choose products you want to add to your widget. You an also use the menu on this page to group your products into folders.

Step 2:

Once you have added Products to your folders, you can go to Tools > Shop the Post in the top navigation menu. This will now take you to a page with all of your Products. Using the menu on the left, you can choose a folder if you created one in Step 1, select the currency and also set the widget and image width. If you paste your code into your post or widget area and the widget or images are too small, you can resize them here.

Step 3:

Finally, all you have to do is to select WordPress as your platform, and click the gray Copy Code button. Use Cmd + C or CTRL + C to copy your code. Then, just navigate to your blog post or widget, and paste the code you want to appear as HTML.

When you publish your post, your widget will appear where you have pasted the code.

You can also go to Appearance > Widgets in your dashboard or follow my tutorial here if you want to add your Shop the Post code in a widget area. This tutorial will work for either Shopstyle or Rewardstyle.
