Building Your Smart Cart App

Create The App

To create a Smart Cart App start by creating your Rebuy Partners account here. If you have already created one then login.

Once you are logged in, click on Smart Cart Apps in the left sidebar menu. Then, click Create New App.

You will then see the following form:

15421542

Start by giving your app a Name, Description, and Installation Instructions. If there are no extra steps to install your app (ie. registering an account on your website), then you can use "N/A" or "None" in the instructions field.

The App Code section is where you will place your HTML, JavaScript, or even CSS for your app. Just keep in mind that this field expects HTML, so if you're planning on writing CSS and JS inside of this editor, you'll need to wrap it in <style> and <script> tags, respectively.

Alternatively, you can choose to import a stylesheet or script file from elsewhere.

Example

<div id="rebuy-example"></div>
<script src="https://cdn.rebuyengine.com/example.js"></script>

This script would then populate the above "rebuy-example" div with all necessary code.

In some cases, loading an additional script will not be necessary if your script is already being loaded by way of that shop having your Shopify app installed.

📘

This is just a first draft.

This App Code doesn't need to be perfect before you submit the form. You'll be able to make revisions and restrict the app's access to specific merchant shops before it becomes visible to every Smart Cart.

Once you click Save, the form should submit and you will be immediately redirected to the Editor Interface for your app.

The Editor Interface looks similar to the Create New App page, except for the additional Merchant Visibility at the top of the screen. This section can be used to add merchant shops, which will make your app accessible to those shops' Smart Carts.


What’s Next

Now you can set your Merchant Visibility to begin testing your app on a Shopify store.
