Configuring checkout with custom currency

Anyone who's worked on customizing checkout pages with Shopify Plus, I have a question:

 

Are you able to completely take over the checkout experience?

 

For example, here's the goal I have:

1) User adds items to cart as usual and reaches checkout, which looks the same.

2) Instead of purchasing with credit card, they purchase using "points".

 

On the backend, my custom app tracks the points according to the user logged in.

 

So when they go to pay, I'd have it display their available points, and when completing payment send an API call to my app to deduct the points.

 

Just want to make sure this is possible with Shopify Plus before diving into the project.

Not completely? But considering you can run javascript might want to reach out through your partner dashboard and see if you can get it enabled on a dev shop still.

 

Before even going that far consider how you'd do it without Plus first

Why not have this part solved at /cart ?

Points as a literal  0 cost line item automatically added + discount for that item equal to "value" of points

Similar to a weight based item or donation customization

 

For Plus isn't this just a discount you could handle with a checkout script?

 

Is the main issue UX of displaying points so it's not just an item with a price $00.00 during checkout and other messaging?

Thanks for the brainstorm, that's a good point about thinking about it without plus... even without a checkout section.

 

I guess what I could do is create a custom checkout page... I guess it could be checkout.store.com, then I could direct all checkout links there and handle the custom logic to do whatever I want.

Hello @JoesIdeas 

any luck with the customizing the checkout?

My need is a lot simpler, I just want it to display and checkout using local currency of Oman which is Omani Rials (OMR) or (R.O)

I see many currencies on Shopify drop-down list but not that.

I do not want to do any conversion, just display on local currency.

 

Any help is much appreciated.
