Let’s get started by following this guide

You can use eCard Widget to add ecards to your website regardless of the platform. We support everything from WordPress to Shopify to simple HTML. We also offer a hosted page, so you don’t even need to have a website. You can link to them from social media, newsletters, or anywhere else.

Step 1. Login or Register for a free account

After you’ve installed the app, you need to Register or Login before you will be able to create your ecard.

Step 2. Design your ecard and then save and preview it

After logging in, you will land on the ecard creation page, where you can make your very first card.

On this page you will see, two options to the left, you can either upload an image, so you just pick an image off your computer and upload it, it can be an animated GIF, can be a JPG, PNG, any of those file types, and there’s really no set dimension, you can have it very tall and a long ecard, or short and simple.

Or you use the ecard designer tool. You can totally customize the card, change the background, font, add clip art, etc. You can set a greeting, details, email subject, customize the layout, etc. Furthermore, you can link this image back to your website, your business website, or wherever you want. Set the details, you could add additional details, especially if this was like an invitation, and you needed to give more info about it.

Click Save and preview. Bam! You just made your first ecard.

Step 3. On the preview page, click the share tab and copy the shortcode

Your ecard has been created. Right now it’s not published, it’s only available in your dashboard. But to publish it to your website, you click the “Add to Website” tab on the preview page.

And this tab gives us the HTML embed code, you can paste on the page you want the widget to show up on. This works on every website platform. You can also use our free apps available for WordPress and Shopify that make this easier.

After adding the embed code to your page, click save and go view your page, your ecard widget should now be showing up on your page.

Step 4. That’s it! Visitors will now be able to view and send the ecard from your website

We hope you enjoy using ecard widget to empower your audience to send ecards to their friends and family. Boosted your brand and connecting your audience.

We’re available anytime if you have any questions. We want to do whatever it takes to help.
