️Loyalty programs and gift cards are some of the most popular ways to increase the loyalty and engagement of the users on any eCommerce store.
Our client (STS Giftcard Solutions) is one of the popular providers of a similar solution, serving 100,000+ merchants around the globe. They wanted to extend their Giftcard system’s eCommerce platform coverage to BigCommerce.
They approached TBI for a custom BigCommerce App. The motive was to let their GiftCard mechanism integrate with BigCommerce stores flawlessly. We knew that adding a new payment or GiftCard system that allows us to pay for orders is not a straightforward option on the BigCommerce platform.
Once we got a clear idea of the requirements, the next challenge was to complete it within a short deadline. Below are some of the solutions:
✔️ BigCommerce app to Integrate existing gift card redemption system
The primary task was to develop a BigCommerce application to enable the client’s existing gift card payment gateway with BigCommerce stores.
The key challenge here was that BigCommerce does not allow adding a new payment gateway on the checkout page, so we worked out a solution by offering the option to apply for the gift cards on the cart page itself.
✔️ Adding additional features to the BigCommerce Cart Page
Whenever the user applies for the gift card, the application will deduct the value from the total cart amount, and the remaining amount will reflect on the cart. Users can pay the remaining amount using any other payment option available in the store.
If the gift card covers the entire purchase amount, the users will see the below custom message on their cart page. They can click on the checkout option to complete their orders.
If the gift card does not have any balance, the application will show the below custom message to the users. It will also ask the users to select other payment options on the checkout page to complete the purchase.
✔️ Creating an extra space on the BigCommerce store admin panel
️To manage the merchant accounts with the client’s payment gateway, we created an extra feature that will reflect on the dashboard of the client once he integrates the app into his store. We added functionality that creates an extra space on the admin panel of BigCommerce stores to manage their account with Smart Transaction Systems.
