Shopify is the simplest integration we have. This can be completed by any Admin with Full Access Permissions. It could seem a bit daunting, but it isn't!
To start integration go to admin.brandbassador.com > Settings > Integrations.
Set a discount code percentage for your ambassadors to share with their friends, family and fans. (This is the same discount code percentage as in Settings > Sales & Discounts, these will mirror)
Click 'Add Webshop' for Shopify
Step 1 - Activate tracking links into your webshop
The first script will enable saving of the reference to local storage if a consumer enters your website through one of your ambassadors tracking links.
To enable this copy the provided script and go to your Shopify Admin > Online Store > Themes > Live Theme > Actions > Edit code. Now paste the script at the bottom of the theme.liquid right above the </body> and click 'Save'. If you're stuck check out the recording below!
Once completed return to the Brandbassador Platform and click 'Done' on Step 1
Step 2 - Install the tracking pixel in your checkout page.
The second script enables the tracking pixel. This ensures that if a customer checks out with a discount code or tracking link generated through Brandbassador, then Brandbassador received the total value, order ID and currency of the sale so commission can be given to the relevant ambassador.
To enable this copy the second script and go to your Shopify admin > Settings > Checkout.
In the "Order Processing" section find "Additional Scripts" text box and paste the tracking pixel script at the bottom and Click Save. If you're stuck check out the recording below!
Once done return to the Brandbassador Platform and and click 'Done' on Step 2.
Step 3 - Install the plugin
The plugin enables your ambassadors to create their own personalised discount codes based on the parameters you set in your Discount Code Settings. It also enables them to withdraw gift card rewards automatically after you approve their mission submissions.
To complete this step you need to be logged into your Shopify Admin.
To install this plugin first select the base currency of your webshop and enter your Shopify URL without the https:// at the beginning and any / or /admin at the end (i.e. like yourshop.myshopify.com) and click 'Authorize'.
A pop-up will open and ask you to Install Brandbassador. Click 'Install' to continue. NB: If you don't get the pop-up, make sure your pop-ups are not blocked (look for a block icon in the right of your address bar)
Woo! You should now be integrated! 🎉
Now you can test the integration by creating a gift card and discount code and placing test orders with them in your webshop
Congratulations you have just integrated your Shopify!
And then we always recommend to test your Integration to make sure it is working as it should.
