How to Add the RewardStyle Plugin to WordPress

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:

https://youtu.be/aFqqGwRp48Q

Step 1:
In your RewardStyle dashboard, go to My Account > Help Center

Step 2: 
When you get to the Help Center, click on the Getting Started button

Step 3: 
Next, under the Widgets + Tools section, click on the “See All 11 Articles” link. 

Step 4: 
Then, click on the RewardStyle Plugin for WordPress link.  

Step 5:
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.  

Step 6:
Now, navigate to your WordPress dashboard.  Go to Plugins> Add New and click on the Upload Plugin button in upper left corner.

Step 7:
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.

Step 8: 
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!

    1. Hey Sarah I’m so glad it was helpful! Thank you so much for reading!

  1. Hi! I am trying to add the RStyle plugin to wordpress … but having a bit of a difficult time doing so. RS says “WordPress.com does not support JavaScript”, but I need Java to run WordPress. Popups, plugins, etc have been enabled in preferences, but WP still says “there was a problem uploading”. I dont know what to do!!!

    1. 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:

      https://www.littlebluedeerdesign.com/difference-wordpress-com-wordpress-org/

      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!):
      https://www.littlebluedeerdesign.com/bluehost-setup/

      It’s really a much better platform! Thank you so much for reading!

      1. 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.

        1. 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 🙂

    1. Hi Brooke! I’m so glad! I don’t know why they make it so confusing lol glad it helped, enjoy!
