Kalder Launches Shopify Plugin, Bringing Storefront Loyalty Integrations to Customers
Brands can now link their membership platform directly to their Shopify storefront
In our continued mission to develop frictionless solutions that bring the community-building benefits of web3 technology to brands, Kalder has launched its Shopify plugin to enable token-gated purchases on the platform.
Brands can now offer exclusive products and discounts to members of their brand loyalty program directly on their Shopify storefront, with full flexibility of discount rates and duration of any promotion.
Through a simple email-based wallet verification process via Magic, program members confirm the membership they hold to unlock access to the token-gated offerings.
Luxury streetwear brand and Kalder partner Les Benjamins has integrated the plugin for their “I FLY CARPETS” collection, a new line of merchandise designed exclusively for members of their Flying Carpet Crew loyalty program. Members of the community can now purchase hoodies, tee shirts, and more that were designed solely for their community directly from the Les Benjamins website, listed alongside the brand’s broader range of offerings.
The deployment of these integrations is the result of careful testing and recalibration, with a deliberate focus on ensuring that brand partners and community members alike can quickly and easily interface with the plugin. Kalder’s team of developers leveraged their combined web2 and blockchain expertise to bridge the gap between traditional online payments and cryptocurrency wallets.
Kalder will create custom Shopify installation links for its clients, streamlining the process of setting up the plugin for their storefronts. As we guide our customers through their entrance to the world of web3, it’s crucial that our solutions are user-friendly for all levels of blockchain expertise. This is the first step in integrating Kalder with Shopify, but certainly not the last.
This integration is a pivotal step forward in building Kalder’s robust feature set, offering brands throughout the world programs that increase customer engagement.
By making it as easy as possible for companies to offer early access to new products and exclusive sales and products, the Shopify integration brings additional value to all loyalty program members.
The step-by-step guide on how to Get Started
For brand partners interested in integrating the Shopify plugin
As a brand (when you get started with Kalder) you’ll receive a one-time link to install the Kalder plugin to your Shopify store. You and your team can add products and collections directly in your own admin dashboard.
When adding a product, you have the option of selecting “Discount Gate” and/or “Product Gate”.
Discount Gate allows you to specify a one-time discount (1-100%) for any product, that only members can claim.
Purchase Gate lets you gate the purchase of any product behind the membership, so only members can add the product to their cart.
This is a great way to grant loyalty members first access to new products, before opening up to the broader community.
Hit “Save” when you’re done, and that’s it! Your product now has exclusive early access and/or discount benefits ready for your loyal members.
If you want to change or remove a benefit, you can do so at any time.
When you create a membership pass with Kalder and distribute it to users, it’s automatically integrated into our Shopify features. If you’ve created your membership pass on Kalder and had 1,000 members claim the pass, you can:
Grant those 1,000 members a 20% discount code as you launch your summer sale.
Grant those 1,000 members early access to a new product line/collection release.
We also support BYOM (Bring-Your-Own-Membership), so even if you have an existing membership pass or NFT that was not created through Kalder, you can still use our Shopify plugin to provide the best loyalty experiences to your members.
Benefit Access (as a Member)
At Kalder, we use blockchain technology as infrastructure to enable more seamless loyalty features. Once the benefit is configured on the admin side, customers can visit any product page with the benefit, and verify the validity of their membership by signing into their blockchain wallet with their email.
Membership holders can immediately unlock their benefits, with discount codes auto-applied to their cart and early access products becoming available to purchase.
We have a lot more ‘in store’ for upcoming features to our Shopify plugin. If your company runs a Shopify store, we’d love to hear from you and how we can build better loyalty integrations together!
