How to Embed Katalys Shops (Pop-up, Tray)

Please note: To function properly, Katalys Shop links require that you are able to place a line of JavaScript into your page header (directions below).

If you are prohibited from doing so for any reason, please notify Katalys with whatever information you may provide that details your constraints, so that we can begin the proper discussions with your organization.

This page describes how to embed a Katalys Shop link in a webpage, with a test Katalys Shop provided to help you identify any potential issues well in advance of activation within your website.


Embedding a Katalys Shop requires the placement of two elements:

  • a tag within your page header, and

  • a Katalys Shop embeds within your page content.

Here is how to validate that this integration will work with your website:

Step 1 of 4: Place the Header Script

Place the tag below between the <head> and </head> tags of your website HTML.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Insert this link to any clickable asset like text, image, or button to open the Katalys Shop in a pop-up from the clickable asset.

<a href="
?utm_source=test_setup">CLICK ME:)</a>

The Shop appears similar to this example, in pop-up format:

Once the link has been inserted, you can validate if the embedded iFrame is behaving correctly in the following steps.
