Below are instructions on how to install Okendo for Shopify Online Store 2.0 compatible themes. Please check whether your theme is Online Store 2.0 compatible before continuing with these instructions. If your theme is a vintage theme, please refer to our manual installation instructions.

Step 1: Ensure the Widget is Enabled in Okendo Admin

If you are coming from Okendo OS2 Installation Window, you can skip this step.

To complete the next sections of the article, the Okendo Reviews widgets need to be toggled on in the Okendo Widget Settings (Settings > Widgets). Enable the Review Widgets then click the "Save" button.

See video below on how to enable the Okendo review widgets.

Step 2: Enable Okendo Reviews App Embed Block

For Okendo Widgets to work in your theme, the Okendo Reviews App Embed will need to be enabled in your Shopify Theme Customizer.

From your Shopify Admin, navigate to the Themes page then click the "Customize" button on the theme you want to install Okendo on.

Click "Theme settings" then "App embeds". Find the "Okendo Reviews" App embed and enable via the toggle switch.

See video below on how to turn on the app embed in Shopify.

Step 3: Install Okendo Widgets

Note: For launched stores that haven't yet selected an Okendo billing plan, we recommend using a duplicate of your live theme, to prevent sample setup data from appearing on your live store.
