We are looking to build our own custom checkout for subscription products to meet our specific business need. I would still like to leverage all the Shopfiy settings (Products, Discounts, Taxes, Shipping, & Abandoned Carts) in this checkout. It seems the Checkout API would provide all this but there is little information on its availability and Shopify Customer Service referred me here to find out more information.
Here is a high-level purchase flow I am trying to achieve. Has anyone here used the Checkout API (or any other of the APIs) to provide meet our need?
I appreciate anyone's feedback!
Yes, it was not possible to use the Checkout API for anything but Marketplace connections. I really hope Shopify opens this up to all sales channels in the future. It seems unnecessarily limiting to force it to one channel only.
We ended up building a custom checkout for our Shopify store and had to re-create everything on the apps end (discounts, shipping calculations, tax calculations, Payment auth/capture). We did leverage the Products API for product verification, Customers API for logged user validation and Customer Creation, and the Orders+Transaction API to process the order back to Shopfiy for fulfillment.
You can see it here, built in REACT/REDUX. Just click 'Buy now'
