Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.

One click and you can hop over to CodePen and play with that demo. Like all the integrations of this ilk, it uses our Post to Prefill API.
