Integration Components

Our Shopify integration has multiple components. 

  1. Javascript Integration (required). This is the key integration component and drives validation of end users to check whether they should be allowed on to your Shopify PDP or redirected to the waiting room. 
  2. Anti-Cheat webhook (optional). Detects and removes line items from a Shopify session that have not been validated and flagged as promoted by CrowdHandler.
  3. Enable Anti-Cheat and Stock Syncing (optional). Synchronises Shopify product/variant inventory quantities to CrowdHandler.

    Can be used to:
    1. Display Shopify stock levels in the CrowdHandler waiting room.
    2. Used as waiting room state triggers i.e. sold out. 
    3. Regulate CrowdHandler -> Site throughput based on stock availability.
  4. Destroy Session on Checkout (optional).
