- Paste the Sumo code inside of the head tags within index.tpl (make sure that the code is in between the two body tags), then Save.
- Login to your PrestaShop Dashboard and hover over Advanced Parameters in the menu on the left and click Performance (NOTE: In older versions of PrestaShop you must go to the Preferences tab and Performance sub-tab).
- Select the option Force Compilation. Then set "Cache" to No. Click Save.
- Congrats, you're all done! Go to your PrestaShop website, navigate to the top right corner of the page, and enter your Sumo credentials to start using Sumo! (NOTE: Your website must be deployed to a server for you to see Sumo.)
