You just dump it down the dipstick tube. You're going to want a funnel and it's going to take a while to get it all in there. If it's getting frustrating, you can start your car for a little bit and let the fluid transfer from the torque converter to the engine. This shouldn't damage your transmission as there's still residual fluid and you aren't actally driving it.
