HTML code in e-mails

P: 6
I am trying to get this survey link button in an e-mail template to send to all my customers but this is the first time and I don't understand some of this. It says

Insert the following HTML into the code for your email. Paste the HTML according to where you would like the button to display within your email.

I don't understand what it means when it says (Insert the following HTML into the code for your email.) How do I do this?

Thank you so much.

It would probably be in the code where you want the button that makes the e-mail message .

Sorry but that didn't help me at all.
I want to send this button to all my customers that order from my site.
Shopping.com gave me this info. But I don't even know where to begin. I know my merchant id and how to add it and the image link but the rest is beyond me.
#2 is where I am stuck. (into "what" code?)

Adding a survey image button to your email
This method displays an image within your order confirmation emails, inviting customers to complete your survey.
Note: This option requires your email to be sent in HTML.
1. Visit https://img.shopping.com/sc/ms/epi_survey_invite.gif and save the image to a directory on your website. Image shown below.
2. Insert the following HTML into the code for your email. Paste the HTML according to where you would like the button to display within your email.
<A HREF=”https://www.shopping.com/xMerchantSurvey.html?mid=[MERCHANT ID]” target=”_blank”>
<IMG SRC=”[IMAGE URL]” ALT=”What do you think of this store?” BORDER=”0”>
</A>
3. Enter your specific information in the following placeholders: [MERCHANT ID]: Your 6 digit Shopping.com merchant ID. Be sure to remove the [ ] brackets.
[IMAGE URL]: The URL for the image saved in your website directory. Be sure to remove the [ ] brackets.
