How do you use LoyaltyLion on your headless Shopify store?

  • Follow LoyaltyLion onboarding as normal

  • Order and signup data will still be automatically synced, no action is required

  • Integrate the LoyaltyLion SDK as if you're a custom store i.e., the store should still be installed as a Shopify store, however, the merchant will need to handle the frontend implementation themselves:

    πŸ’‘ Please note, that if the SDK is not loaded on every page as described in our installation documentation, your customers might not be able to view their loyalty program.

  • Verify your signup and login URLs

    • If they match /account/login and /account/register, no action is required

    • If your signup/login URLs differ, provide us with the updated link(s)

      • the dev team will update the site's settings.urls
