Checkout option: Viber

With the Viber Shop Configuration, we're expanding the ways your customers can check out!

Updated over a week ago

Using the Shop Configuration checkout options, you can make different checkout options. With Viber checkout, visitors can add products to the Flipbook’s basket, and export the contents to a Viber conversation with the recipient of their choice.

🔰 Before you get started

This article assumes that you've already set up the Shop Configuration for your Flipbooks. If you haven't already, take a moment to read our Setting up Shop guide, which will show you how:

  2. In the Settings menu, click on the Modules pane, and then select Shop Configuration.

  3. Click on Select Shop Configuration, and then click Create, to create a new Shop Configuration.

  4. From here, select the Viber checkout option, and you'll be presented with a number of options:

  1. Name of the checkout option: This has no effect on the Shop, but it'll help you to keep track of your different configurations.

  2. Recipient message: Here you can add a simple text template of what the recipient message will say when it is sent to a recipient's Viber. By default, the Basket URL which is required, but you can also select/deselect Order ID to be included.

    ⚠️ This message has a character limit of a maximum of 200 characters, so remember to keep any additional messaging as concise as possible.

  3. Checkout button label: This is what will show on the checkout button in the iPaper basket. If you leave the field empty, the system standard checkout label will be used.

  4. Always remember to Save your work!

How it works

As your customers browse your Flipbooks, they'll be able to add items in the catalog to their basket using the Shop Enrichments you've created.

In the bottom left-hand corner, your customers will be able to send their basket via a Viber message to, for example, to a friend, colleague or local representative.

Once your customers click to check out their basket via Viber, they'll be presented with a QR code, which they scan using their Viber app, and then select the number to which they wish to send their basket.

The recipient will receive a list of your customers' orders, allowing them to complete their purchase.
