  • Integrate on a specific page (in a container)
  • Add a chat pop-up on every page of your website
  • Add a chat pop-up with a 15 sec delay, that will be displayed on every page of your website, to only engage customers after enough time spend on a page.

Simulate your favorite integration

Use our Staging demo interface to simulate the style and position our your integration (pop-up or embedded), then get your code script code, to copy-paste on your website.

If you’d like to simulate your own design and inventory, ask your account manager to create your demo environment.

 

You can test both integrations:

  • Check the “pop-up” box to simulate a pop-up integration, or a delayed CTA integration, select the position (left or right) and use the x and y parameters to move the pop-up button from the the corner (x = width, y=height).
  • Uncheck the “pop-up” box to simulate the embed of the Sommelier Bot on a single page.
  • Once you’ve found the right version for you, get your code (icon <> on the demo page) and integrate on your website
Simulation page

If you want to have the sommelier.bot as a pop-up button at the bottom (left or right) of the user screen, on all pages of your website, follow these steps

1. Place the script in your website footer.

Version with pop-up button:

<script lang=”en” client=”Wine.com” popup=”button” src=”https://cdn.sommelier.bot/widget.js” defer></script>

 

Version with delayed pop-up CTA:

<script lang=”en” client=”Wine.com” popup=”cta” src=”https://cdn.sommelier.bot/widget.js” defer></script>

Display pop-up on the left, by adding it as a parameter in the js script.

<script lang=”en” client=”wine.com” popup=”button” popup-position=”left” src=”https://cdn.sommelier.bot/widget.js”></script>

By default (or without any mention in the script), the bot button will always be displayed on the bottom right corner.

Change the pop-up button height or width from the corner, by adding it as a parameter in the js script.

<script lang=”en” client=”wine.com” popup=”1″ popup-x=”30″ popup-y=”50″ src=”https://cdn.sommelier.bot/widget.js”></script>

Simply replace the number “30” and “50” respectively by the width and height you’d like to have the pop-up button from the corner of the screen.

You can test the result by using our demo staging website here, and replacing the parameters in the URL, to simulate the width and height you’d like in px.

If you want to have the sommelier.bot in a given container (which should have a unique ID) on your page or article, follow these steps

1. Place the div container at the desired place in your document where the sommelier.bot should appear

<div id=”sommelier-bot”></div>

Hint for WordPress users: Remember that you have to add the code just like the JavaScript, as html or via “text” mode, as mentioned above.

2. Place the following script at the end of the document, immediately before </body>

Version without any pop-up, for a single page:

<script lang=”en” client=”Wine.com” src=”https://cdn.sommelier.bot/widget.js” defer></script>

Optional: You can set a lang key in the config with values “de” or “en”. If there is no lang key in the config, the sommelier.bot automatically tries to recognize the locale of the user by looking at the preferred browser settings. It will always default to en.

2. Create your XML Product Feed

Your XML Product feed is a URL, containing all your ACTIVE products details in a specific XML format, and hosted on your website, that you can fill in your user account in your Sommelier Bot Admin interface. This URL is called by the Sommelier Bot every night at 3am to load your latest product inventory:

  • if a new product is in your XML Product Feed: it will be added to your Sommelier Bot inventory. It can be then tagged and activated manually in the Admin interface.
  • if a product is not anymore in your XML Product Feed, it is considered out of stock and will be deactivated by our system. It remains in your Sommelier Bot Admin interface, but is not active.
  • if some product details have been updated in your website database, the XML Product Feed will automatically update theses details in your Sommelier Bot Admin interface. Only some details can be updated: name, price, description, link, image_url.

XML Product Feed required format
