Shopify integration notes
This page shows what I’ve found about connecting the plentoptika.com use experience with the shopify purchase process.
First, my initial finding that a subdirectory (plenoptika.com/shop) was a better way to implement the shopify experience than a subdomain (shop.plenoptika.com). It turns out this is 1) not necessary while you are a 1-product outfit as shown below, and 2) above my ability to implement.
Second, the WordPress plugin we thought we could use on the website is no longer recommended. Shopify provides a tool for creating code to put on the website, called the Buy Button Sales Channel. It can be implemented in three modes, shown below.
I think with these three buy button modes, we have enough flexibility to launch as soon as you are ready.
Buy Now button modes
- Show Quantity in button or not
- Button click goes to Direct Checkout, Add to Cart, or Product Details.
- Various alignment, size, typography, and button content options
