Before gaining access to the data from the Liffery platform or enabling the Liffery Sidebar on your site, first, you will need to verify that you own or manage the site. Verification prevents unwanted actors from gaining access to data that doesn’t rightfully belong to them.
The team at Liffery are continually expanding the coverage of app and plugins for different e-commerce platforms. However, if your site does not have a compatible Liffery app or plugin, you will have to verify your site manually… but don’t worry it is not overly complex, and if you need any help at any point of the journey, our team will be on hand to help!
The manual verification process #
- Download to your computer the verification file from the Liffery for Business app.
- Upload the file to your platform and ensure it can be accessed from a web browser.
- Lastly, enter the URL to the file into the Liffery for Business app, and press verify. Liffery will then attempt to read the file based on the URL you provided, and if it can be read, Liffery will consider the domain verified.
Uploading files to your website depends on the type of platform your website runs on.
Below are a few documentation links to some of the more popular platforms on how to upload files:
Although we advise using the official Liffery apps and plugins for Shopify and WordPress, you can also use the “One-Liner” option and manually upload the verification file to your site.
