Allowing customers to redeem points at checkout is a great way to promote points spending and increase engagement with your reward program. Adding the slider just takes a few minutes.

Requirements

This feature is currently available only to Shopify Plus and BigCommerce users.

Shopify Plus users

Adding a points slider at checkout in Shopify requires editing the checkout.liquid template file, which is a feature currently only available to Shopify Plus merchants.‌

For non-Shopify Plus merchants, this feature is not possible to add.

BigCommerce users

To add the point slider at feature in BigCommerce you will need to edit the cart.html template file, since the checkout page is not allowed to be edited.

Implementation of point slider in BigCommerce

1. Login to your BigCommerce Admin

Once logged in, click into Storefront > My Themes > Edit Theme.

2. Find your cart page template

Typically this will be /pages/cart.html

Once inside the file, the next step will be pasting in the code.

3. Add code to Cart Page

Copy the entire code from here and add to the cart page html, above the total line.

You can add the code anywhere on the cart page, but we recommend to add it above total so it’s more clear to customers.
