Your snippet can be found under Settings > Account > Site Setup
There is no need to modify the code and you can copy and paste it directly into your codebase.
If you have multiple Drip accounts, each account will have its own unique snippet.
Before installing your snippet
Prior to installation, you will want to make sure that the snippet has not been previously installed through any 3rd party integrations you might be using that currently have direct connections to your website.
For example, if you manually install the snippet into your website code, and also have the snippet installed in a platform like Google Tag Manager, or our WordPress plugin (if you are using WordPress), the snippet will install twice and will result in unwanted behavior.

When installing your JS snippet into any 3rd party integrations, please read up on the instructions provided by the platform you are using in regards to proper placement of your snippet.
For example, a platform like Google Tag Manager allows you to install your tracking snippet through its software. In that case, you will not need to manually install the snippet into those pages being tracked by GTM. Multiple installations will lead to inaccurate tracking and unwanted behavior, like duplicate form widgets appearing on the pages of your website.
If given the option, always place the snippet right before the closing </body> tag.
Find your Drip Account ID in your Drip account under Settings > Account > General Info in your Drip account.
Installing the plugin
Step1: When logged in to your WordPress admin, navigate to Plugins > Add New.
Step2: Search for:
Email Marketing by Drip
and click the Install Now button.
Step 3: In the WordPress admin sidebar, navigate to Settings > Drip.
Step 4: Insert your Drip Account ID and click Save Changes.
You can also manually install this plugin directly into your WordPress file structure by following these instructions.
Keep in mind that installing your snippet through the plugin replaces the need to manually install the code snippet into the website’s codebase. If you use the plugin, and install the snippet manually, it will lead to unwanted behavior like form widgets being duplicated on your webpages and inaccurate tracking of stats.
In your Drip account, navigate to Settings > Account > Site Setup.
Directly underneath the code snippet, you will see a form. Enter the email address of the individual you would like to send installation instruction to, along with an additional message.
You may have noticed that you can still send emails from your Drip account without having your JS snippet installed, but there are a few features that simply will not work until it is installed:
- Drip opt-in pop-up widget
- "Visited a page" trigger
- Page visit analytics (e.g. number of pages in a visit, visited x times in a week)
- Lead Scoring for page visits
- On-page trigger links
- Identification of subscribers
- Time zone detection

Each Drip account has a unique snippet that can be found under Settings > Account > Site Setup
Yes! You will need to enable cross-domain tracking.
Why am I seeing double form widgets on my site?
If you are experiencing two of the same form widget showing up on the same page of your site, that is a good indication that the snippet has been installed multiple times on the same page. At that point, you will want to double check the origin of the installation.
