By connecting Mash to your site, it allows you to get paid directly, and provides users access to their Mash wallet to easily contribute (with a click, or automatically).
The user wallet appears as a small icon on your site. The Wallet can display on all pages of your site, or you can set-it-up to show up only on specific pages that have items to monetize, such as Boosts, Page Revealers and more. You can adjust the placement and positioning directly in your Mash account.
There are multiple ways to add Mash to a Wordpress site:

Option 2: Connect Mash with Code Snippets
Using a generic header code editor plugin
We recommend using a plugin that allows you to edit the code differently depending on the page. This will be useful for also adding different Mash monetization widgets and components to different pages and posts on your site. Currently we have tested – Header & Footer Code Editor by 99 Robots (here).
Editing the theme pages or functions.php file
You can access the header code from the dashboard → appearance → theme_editor → theme_header.php. If you upgrade, or make changes to your theme you will have to re-integrate Mash to your experience.
Use a do_action hook
You can find the details here directly from Wordpress.
