    Note: If you're using Gmail on the desktop, you might need close the Gmail tab/window and open it again otherwise the newly installed add-on will not appear.

    On the web version of Gmail, add-ons appear on the right side of the screen. Click on the shopping cart icon to open the add-on.

  5. At this point, you need to activate the add-on to finish installation. This can be done by looking at the add-on in any message in Gmail, but it is easiest to complete the step when you're looking at the 'Welcome to Merchant Mail' email that contains your personal activation token. Follow the instructions in the card.
