- Navigate to your test page with any device (e.g. mobile, tablet, desktop) and look for Sharethrough's default template. Once the template is on page, your integration is deemed successful.
If you are having trouble integrating, email email@example.com for more assistance. Please be sure to include a link to a test page to allow for a quick resolution.
Once you see your Placement integrated properly on your test page, click on Next Steps in the default template and proceed to the next article on how to submit a request for verification and styling.
