Checkout option: Shop Export

Your visitors can start shopping in your flipbook and checkout in your own site.

Updated over a week ago

By using the Shop Integration check out options, your customers can check out via your own landing page, web-shop or basically any way you want them to!

The way this works is the following:

  1. The contents of the iPaper basket in the flipbook are sent out.

  2. These contents are received by a middle site or a URL that makes sure the checkout site can read the data sent from iPaper. It acts as a "translator" that allows the starting point (Flipbook) and ending point (your site) to be able to communicate.

  3. Lastly, the contents are sent to the ending site where the customer will do their checkout.

The customer will be sent directly from the flipbook to the checkout on your side. The second step is necessary for this to be successful, but it will not interfere in the customer's experience.

To set up this integration, there are two main steps:

  • The first one requires some development from the customer's side.

  • The second one is done in the customer's iPaper account.

1. Develop a middleware site or URL

Note: This action is owned by the customer.

For the development on your side, we have five different suggestions, depending on the solution you need for your particular case.

We recommend that this step is done by your development team, as it is quite technical.

Here you have the information for the different solutions:

2. Set the integration up in your iPaper account

Send the content from your flipbook's basket.

The goal in this step is for iPaper to send the basket content. To be able to do that, the customer will add a Shop Configuration checkout in the iPaper platform.

Add a Shop Configuration integration checkout.

From here, there's 4 fields to take into account:

  1. Name of the checkout option: this has no effect on the Shop, it's simply for you to keep track of your different configurations.

  2. Export URL: This is where you want us to send the data to

  3. Export window target: Here you decide the behavior - should it open in the same window or a new one?

  4. Checkout button label: What should the Checkout button inside the Flipbook say? You decide!

And there you have it, your very own shop integrated in your flipbook checkout!! 💪
