Account & Addresses
Within the My Account Interface, the customer can see a summary of their details such as email address, company name, and financial details from the "My Details" section. It's possible to set up additional "custom fields" within the My Details area, allowing you to include other information that may be relevant to your B2B customers.
Setting custom fields for the My Details area works in a very similar way to the custom checkout fields feature, by adding special code to your website within the SparkLayer Core Script. You can use our sample below to get started.
Custom element configuration options
The label name to show to the customer, e.g. "Website"
The value, this can either be set manually or dynamically generated, e.g. via a metafield or setting
The field type, with the following options
By default, the value will be shown to your customers. If you'd prefer to show custom text, you can use the displayText field. For example, for a link, you could use displayText: "Click here"
Please note If you are using our Sales Agent Ordering functionality, there is an important limitation to be aware of that applies to custom fields that are based on a customer metafield.
When a sales agent signs in as a B2B customer, they will not see the value inputted in the metafield on the customer's account - rather they will see the value inputted in the agent's account itself.
If you want to give customers an easy way to show their shipping address for an order, you can optionally display this from their My Account overview.
SparkLayer supports full address editing and adding, allowing customers to manage their online address book. With the My Account interface, customers can simply click the icons next to each address to edit or delete an entry or add a new one. Learn how to configure this in our guide here
Please note Address management is enabled by default. If you'd prefer customers to not be able to edit or add addresses, you can turn that off via the SparkLayer Dashboard. There is also an option to prevent addition and modification of the default billing address. This still allows for addition and modification of other addresses.
SparkLayer has support to show order tracking information against an order, allowing customers to view shipping tracking details. This also works for part-shipments for an order, giving the customer great visibility of their order details.
Within Shopify, go to an order and go through the fulfilment process. Under "Tracking information (optional)" enter the tracking number and shipping carrier (this can be automated via a third-party app)
Once added, this will then show in the My Account Interface for the customer when viewing an order detail page.
Please refer to Credit & Invoicing
When a logged in customer accesses your website's existing my account area (e.g. /account), it will redirect them to the SparkLayer My Account interface instead. If you'd prefer, you can change the default handling and set a custom URL to redirect B2B customers to once they log in. Learn more
It's possible to attach invoices (e.g. a PDF) to a B2B customer's order. Please refer to our guide here to learn more.
