Enabling the Omnichannel chat widget
2. Go to Inbox settings.
3. Click on Channels and open Omnichannel Widget.
4. Customize your widget settings to make it match the style of your Squarespace store (logo, colours, agent name).
5. Under Location make sure to whitelist your store’s website address (e.g. https://myshopname.squarespace.com) to signal Inbox — it should accept chat requests coming from your Squarespace store.
6. Done? Awesome! Hit Publish changes and activate the widget. You can always come back and change the Inbox settings.
7. Now that we finished the configuration on the Inbox side, let’s copy the code snippet by clicking Get code snippet.
Attaching widget to your Squarespace store
Time to add the code by injecting it to the footer of every page.

2. Go to Advanced Settings, and then Code Injection.
3. Inside the Footer box, paste the code snippet from Inbox.
4. And that’s it! Save the changes, publish the new site version and the Omnichannel Chat Widget will be visible on your Squarespace store.
