Headless commerce and custom storefronts with Shopify APIs and SDKs
I would really, really like to get this right.
I'm trying to replace the use of draft orders with the new create cart functionality.
Id like to create carts for customers then send them the cart url to complete, all via a private app. Theoretically this should have way more flexibility than draft orders.
But I cant get it to work!
Anyone know if its possible?
If anyone has got this right and can share their code, would really appreciate it.
If you mean for the online sales channel website with the ajax api you basically need to create the cart when a user hits the landing page.
How is the user authentication handled?
Would the url then require user login?
If you mean for the online sales channel the just login using the customer login template
For the storefront api
You have lost me.
I am currently creating and sending draft orders via api. But this is limited as customers cannot edit their order - add or remove products. They can only buy or not buy.
With the latest release, it appears that the above can be achieved by inserting items into a customers cart via api, and then sending them a link to access their cart, and purchase.
This would be similar to creating a draft order, but in this case not creating and sending them a link to a draft order, rather sending them a link to their cart which already contains the products I have put in it. This allows the customer to edit their cart before purchasing.
Is this possible?
