Seller Portal Publish: Smartlinks

Seller Portal Publish: Smartlinks

Smartlinks allow users a standalone link for a product generated in Seller Portal which can be viewed, personalised where available and purchased without the need for it to be embedded in an ecommerce site.


This works using STRIPE checkout which on clicking the “Add to Bag” button we pass to for payment. Because of this the Seller Portal owner must have a STRIPE account that can take the payments. The Stripe public and private keys can be added to the portals configuration, details on how to get these from stripe can be found here - https://support.custom-gateway.com/portal/en/kb/articles/standalone-stripe-enabled-smartlinks


The smartlink uses the app defaults on the blank product which are inherited by the virtual.


The process users the Seller Portal logged in users primary company as the company ref. If this does not have its own Stripe private key it will take this from the admin company. Please make sure you add the Stripe Private Key to the Admin company on the seller portal manually.





Stripe allows shipping rates to be set inside it which can be harnessed by the integration (shipping rates field on the advanced setting of the network organisation company under the Stripe tab). These shipping rates can be specific to destination country, currency and product weight. If you are logged into stripe the rates can be set up here https://dashboard.stripe.com/shipping-rates. All rates in Stripe are flat, one rate to one currency to one amount so a number of rates have to be set up to fill the portal owners needs. Each rate when set up will have a reference which needs to be used in some simple JSON so build the rules. This JSON has to be a single line, an example of this is below along with an expanded example to make it easier to see the structure.

You can set a shipping rate up and call it against a country. The Smartlink app used must allow for shipping country to be added before passing to stripe




Smartlinks have an option to use the URL shortening service Rebrandly. Seller Portal clients wanting to use this need to create their own accounts and this is a third party paid for service. When their account is activated you need to get their Workspace ID and API key as well as the name of any custom domain set up. Rebrandly was chosen specifically as it allows for a custom domain for be set up for use with shorteners. The default rebrandly shortened URLs are in the format rebrand.ly/code.
