WIX installation


So you've got a Wix site and you want to use Subscribers? Good news! We can help you make it happen if you follow these simple steps: 

 

STEP 0: PREREQUISITES 

To install Subscribers.com you're going to need to be on Wix Premium plan subscriptions. If you're on this plan, read on. If not, it looks like you're going to need to upgrade your Wix subscription. 




STEP1: CHANGE YOUR SITE TO HTTP INSIDE OF SUBSCRIBERS.COM

This may sound weird but you will need to change your URL to "HTTP" inside of the Subscribers.com "Site Settings" tab, even though your site is an https site. We know... that's weird.... but trust us... It's a Wix thing :)

 

This is an easy change though. Just make sure your logged into Subscribers and then go to this link. and change your "SITE URL" to HTTP


(This does not affect your actual website's url. This is strictly a setting inside of Subscribers.com)

 

This little dropdown is what you need to toggle to HTTP: (NOT HTTPS)

 

It should look like this when you're done: 

 







STEP2: Now you’re ready to install Subscribers.


  • On your Wix Dashboard, Click “Settings”.

  • Click the Tracking & Analytics tab under Advanced Settings.

  • Click + New Tool and select Custom from the dropdown. 

  • Set up your custom code:

    • Enter your custom code.

    • Select the relevant domain.
      Note: This option will appear only if you have multiple domains.

    • Enter a name for your custom code. 

    • Add Code to Pages: Select which pages to add your code to:

      • All pages: Select “lLoad code on each new page” from the dropdown.

      • Choose specific pages: Begin typing the name of the relevant pages and then click the checkbox next to the relevant page. 

    • Place Code in: Select “Head” from the list.

  • Click Apply. 


STEP3: VERIFY YOUR SITE IN SUBSCRIBERS

Once your script is saved in Wix, navigate this URL in your Subscribers dashboard: and then press "Verify"

 

Uh oh! It says "Error retrieving the site: 404"

 

This is one of those "Wix" things that we're just going to work around! Press the "override" button to move forward. It looks like this and is located right under the "Verify Installation" header text: 

Click that and you're finally ready to roll. Your users will see the "Subscribe" prompt (But don't forget to style it up here!) and you can start sending pushes right away.
