This is the simple, quick way to get Whisk's Save & Shop buttons on your site. You can generate widget code and embed it into your site yourself without interaction with Whisk.
1. First you need to check the structure of your recipe content. Use our Content Validator to test whether your content is formatted in a way Whisk can easily understand. If your content passes our validation test you can move on to the next step. If it does not, you can choose to update the structure of your recipe content, or with the paid version we will parse your content without you needing to make any changes. View our Recipe Formatting Guide for more information.
2. Generate your widget code using our Widget Builder. Follow the instructions on that page to build your customized widget.
3. Copy and paste the code you generated in the previous step into your recipe template(s). Once complete, the shopping tools will appear on all existing and newly added recipes.
How long does it take the Whisk buttons to appear on my site?
Appearance generally happens within seconds, but can sometimes take a few minutes. After the code is added to you recipe template, Whisk buttons appear on each recipe after the first view of the recipe page. Depending on the number of recipes on your site and your traffic patterns, it can take a couple of days to a couple of weeks for all of your existing recipes to show the buttons. Any new recipe added is immediately enabled after first view on your site.
How are the default product matches (and available swaps) selected?
Whisk is an AI-based platform. Our platform algorithmically matches ingredients to the most relevant products available at the selected store. The algorithm uses a combination of criteria to determine relevance including amount, specific food, product availability, and price.
Why are some products grayed out?
We automatically gray out (and unlist) products a consumer likely has in their pantry already, for example olive oil, salt, and pepper. Those can easily be added back into the shopping list by increasing quantity from 0 to 1 or selecting Swap.
Why do some ingredients not match to products?
There could be a number of reasons that a default product will not be matched at the selected grocery store. First, no relevant products are available. Other reasons are based on how machine learning works. Machine learning is constantly improving and takes ongoing training, especially when a new data set (like your recipes) are introduced. Our platform and data team are constantly training our platform and identifying ways to improve matching.
How do I know matched store products are in stock?
Product availability across our grocers is, on average, updated every 24 hours. However products can still become unavailable. During the add to basket process, if we determine that specific items are not available, a message is provided in the shopping list after the add to basket is complete.
I have audiences across multiple countries. How does that work?
Whisk currently has grocer integrations across three countries - United Kingdom, United States, and Australia. Our platform understands where you audience is coming and shows the right grocery options in the right location. If no grocery options are available, only the Add to Shopping List button will appear on the page, and only Email and Print options will be available in the shopping list.
Does Whisk work with Wordpress? What platforms/CMS does Whisk work on?
Can I add the shopping list to my app?
The buttons only work on web/mobile web.
