How to use Viator’s widget builder

Using the widget builder, you can quickly and easily create widgets in just minutes. The widget builder will provide you with a code that you can copy and paste on your website to immediately start earning commission

New feature: search for products directly in the widget builder

While you can still open another browser window to search for products on viator.com, you can now search for products directly in the widget builder using the free text search field. This search bar works similarly to the search bar on viator.com, where you can make a search using keywords, destination name, category, or attraction. Now, you can easily search for products and build your widget in one place

When typing in the search bar, a search preview will appear that will aid you in finding what you’re searching for a destination or attraction, a category, or a curated list of specific tours or activities.
