Add checkbox to checkout page and add a charge

Hi,

 

I'm looking for a bit of advice, I know what I want to do but not 100% on how to do it. I'm writing an app for multiple eCommerce platforms (Shopify being the first!) that needs to add a checkbox to the checkout page and the customer can choose to add a dynamic amount to their checkout. The amount will come from my API, add the charge to the customer (checkbox at checkout) and add usage billing to the merchant as a subscription.

 

So, I understand the usage billing stuff and I've followed the example app tutorial to understand how to integrate into the Shopify dashboard, but how do I add A) a new checkbox to the checkout page and B) first make an API call to my API to get the amount that needs adding.

 

It's a fairly simple app! Just need a few pointers to put me in the right direction :)

 

Thanks,

 

Tom.

We cannot customize checkout page.
It may be possible in shopify plus.

Hi,

 

I realise my reply was probably a bit abrupt and having perused the API documentation a bit further, it looks like you're correct. It does make me scratch my head a bit more how they're doing it, but since they're not on the Shopify app store I'm guessing it's because they're doing something they shouldn't.

 

I think I'll see if there's a way to do it at the product-level instead. I'm assuming there is a way to do this since there are already some apps on the marketplace doing something similar such as: https://apps.shopify.com/gifthy-io.

 

If anyone has any guidance, that would be great!

Thanks,


Tom.
