Content blocks serve as an excellent method to incorporate additional content into your checkout, thank you page, or order status pages. You can create a compelling super title, title, and description within these content blocks to express gratitude to your customers, offer additional insights about your business, or showcase any information you'd like to convey! πŸ›’πŸ”βœ¨


Your Shopify store must be on Shopify Plus utilizing checkout extensions as you will need access to the new checkout editor. Through this editor, you can seamlessly incorporate widget inserts via app blocks. These inserts enable the presentation of content blocks on the specific page(s) of your choice, enhancing the overall user experience.


To begin, the initial step is setting up a Checkout Extensions widget in Rebuy. Simply navigate to Rebuy, proceed to the checkout extensions section, and click on the "get started" option to initiate the process.

Following the setup process, you can select the content block as your preferred media type. From there, specify the placement location, whether it's on the checkout page, thank you page, or order status page. Tailoring the content block placement ensures your chosen content is displayed precisely where you want it for maximum impact. πŸ›οΈβœ¨

Feel free to add any desired text you wish to display and save! When you're ready to install or preview the complete version, be sure to copy your widget ID (as it will be necessary for the upcoming steps). To access your Shopify checkout editor, you can conveniently do so by clicking the "go to Shopify" button in the widget settings, or click "preview" in the upper right corner, which will automatically direct you to the checkout editor.

It's important to note that these content blocks do not rely on specific data source rules. They will appear whenever someone lands on the respective page(s) you have configured, providing a seamless and consistent user experience.

If you do not want to install the checkout extensions on your live checkout, you can make an alternate checkout to preview the widget by going to your Shopify checkout settings and duplicating your live checkout profile.

When accessing your checkout editor, your initial step is to select the page where you intend to implement the content block. You can do so by clicking the dropdown at the top of the checkout editor page as seen below.

Once you have selected the page you desire, you have the option to select the "add app block" button. From there, pick the "Rebuy Smart Component" app block, input the widget ID from your widget page, opt for "NO" when it comes to hiding this extension setting, and then proceed to click on the save button.

Keep in mind that the save button in Shopify won't automatically refresh the page, so you'll need to refresh the page manually to view the app in the checkout previewer.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed your content block! To complete the process, customize the block's placement. Navigate back to the main checkout profile settings page, where you can click and drag the app block to your desired location. Once you've found the perfect spot, click the "save" button to confirm your changes. πŸŽ‰
