2. External Checkout

The live shopping can be integrated with any e-commerce that uses a standard API like Shopify, having an API that delivers the list of products which are imported and filtered by their SKU to bring only those needed, and an API where the customer's shopping cart is sent.

In the tab you will see the following fields:

  • Products Filter: in this box, you must add the list of SKU codes with the selection of the products that will be used during the event, the added codes will create the corresponding items in the event URL with those selected from the online store.

  • Authorization Token: if any type of authorization is required for the request of the data through the API of the store, the token provided for such consumption is added in this field.

  • Products URL: in this field you add the external URL from where the products added using the SKUs should be read, usually the store's API.
  • Checkout URL: It is the destination URL to which it refers to when a shopping cart with one or more selected products is ready, it is marked as mandatory.

The shopping cart is available at the top right of your Next landing page, once it is full, the user will be able to make the respective payment by simply clicking on Buy.

So, when sharing the URL of your event, the store will be available to users within the same live. The results of the purchases will be processed by the corresponding payment gateway at the time of management, Mediastream does not handle these statistics within the module.
