Toggle Cart via URL or SDK

Open or close your cart using a simple URL parameter, or directly via JS with our SDK. This feature gives you the power to use your own cart buttons, and guide the customer journey more effectively, leading to improved user interaction and potential increase in conversions.

Retain container height on paginate and scroll-to effect

We've improved the transition effects for browsing and opening the full product views.

Shoprocket now retains the container height when switching between product list & full views, with an added "scroll" effect to ensure the content is displayed in the viewport.

We also scroll back to the exact position your customers were at when navigating back to the product list, making shopping even more intuitive.

New cart back button at each step

Every step of the checkout process now includes a 'Back' button, allowing customers to easily review or amend their orders. This improves user experience by making the buying process more forgiving and user-friendly.

Show Stock Levels

Display real-time stock levels to your customers, adding a sense of urgency and informing purchase decisions. This feature can help boost sales by encouraging immediate action when stock levels are low.

You can enable the stock level element via your embed page, or your hosted store page. Open the "elements to show" panel, then enable the "show stock" switch. For embeds, remember to copy & paste the new embed code into your website after making changes.

Populate Cart Addresses via SDK

Introduce a more streamlined checkout process with the bindCartAddress() function in our SDK.

If you already know your customers' info, you can now pre-fill shipping and billing information programmatically, reducing friction during the checkout process and making it quicker and easier for customers to complete their purchases.

Apply Coupons via SDK or URL

Apply coupon codes directly via our SDK or a URL parameter, offering greater flexibility in how promotions are shared and redeemed. This allows you to effortlessly incorporate discounts into your marketing campaigns, improving both reach and customer engagement.

Search products via URL params directly

Site of the Month

Showcasing excellence in design and functionality, it provides valuable insights and ideas for your own ecommerce site.

This month we tried something a little different, we found an online shop we liked so much, we decided to recreate it with Shoprocket using nothing but our existing embed codes.

We copied the HTML from this page on Magda Butrym, and replaced the product content (including the images & video) with a Shoprocket embed, then with a little custom CSS we were able to recreate it almost exactly.

You can do anything with Shoprocket, so what will you build next?
