Step 4: Embed app to Shopify theme

You need to embed app to your Shopify theme so that SMSGem can work on your store.

Why do I have to integrate app with my theme?

Firstly, enabling App Embeds (integrate app) allows PingMe to stay fully compatible with your theme and function at its best.

Secondly, it ensures that the app will stop at the moment you uninstall it. You don't need to manually add any scripts to the theme for the app to work, also no code removal is needed upon uninstallation.

Go to your Shopify admin -> Sales channel -> Themes

Go to App embeds.

Turn the app on and click to SAVE button to allow our app work on your theme.
