How to Use Widgets
Add links to your livestream
A widget is a button or text box that can be used as an additional advertising tool to share information or links while your stream is happening.
When you broadcast a live stream or schedule an automated prerecorded live stream, you have the option to display up to three widgets during the pre-show lobby hour and during the show. Widgets cannot be added to video on demands. The widgets will located underneath the stream and are only visible to folks tuning in from web browsers on their desktops/laptops/tablets/smart phones.
You can use widgets to share anything you'd like such as a link your website, web store, post-show Q&A Zoom link, or Tip Jar. The "Tip Jar", not to be confused with the Donations feature available to customers at checkout, allows customers to tip your organization as your show is happening in real time, linked to your PayPal, Venmo, Cash App, etc.
Stellar also offers a separate, integrated tip/donation button, so if you have Tips or Donations setup on your account, a button will automatically appear and those payments will be processed through your Stripe account.
To get your widgets set up, you'll need up to three links as well as three images (452 x 159 pixels in size) that indicate what each link is. Upload the images to your Media Library and email the links you'd like to use to firstname.lastname@example.org.
