Turn on the power of SparkLayer for Shopify.

SparkLayer is an elegant end-to-end headless eCommerce solution that gives you a simple way to enable B2B eCommerce on your Shopify store. It’s rapid to install, integrates beautifully with your existing systems, and gives the end customer a great ordering experience.

How SparkLayer works.

  • B2B Data

    SparkLayer retrieves and stores B2B-specific data that you send to it, such as pricing.

  • Frontend Experience

    The SparkLayer Frontend converts your Shopify store into a B2B ordering platform.

  • Self-Service

    Logged in B2B customers can then see their specific pricing and start placing orders.

  • Synchronisation

    Data is then synchronised between SparkLayer, Shopify and your backend systems.

SparkLayer Frontend

The key features of SparkLayer.

Connect your systems to the SparkLayer API
The SparkLayer Backend

Connect to your B2B data.

One of the biggest challenges of B2B eCommerce is connecting to data such as customer-specific pricing. With SparkLayer, you can use one of our ready-made integrations to connect to your systems (e.g. ERP or CRM) or build your own via the SparkLayer API. You can even manually upload your B2B data via our powerful import tools in the SparkLayer Dashboard. Once you're connected, you're ready to enable the powerful frontend ordering experience.

You can even invite additional team members and add additional stores to your account.

How SparkLayer connects.

To visualise how SparkLayer connects, think of it as sitting outside your current architecture. It talks directly to your backend system (e.g. ERP, PIM) and your Shopify store, retrieves the B2B data it needs, and then enables the SparkLayer Frontend for your B2B customers to place orders.

Questions & Answers.

Which eCommerce platforms and systems does SparkLayer integrate with?

SparkLayer works with Shopify and Shopify Plus with more platforms coming soon. Our officially appproved SparkLayer Shopify App means you can integrate with SparkLayer with total confidence. Learn more about our Shopify integration.

SparkLayer also integrates with a range of other systems, from payment gateways to multi-channel operations platforms. You can find our full list of integrations here.

How do I enable SparkLayer on my store?

There are two key elements to using SparkLayer on your store. Firstly, you need to install our official Shopify app and configure your B2B data (e.g. pricing). And secondly, you need to implement SparkLayer on your store.

When your SparkLayer account is created, our online onboarding process guides you through all the elements of installing SparkLayer on your store. This includes connecting connecting to your systems and uploading your B2B data (e.g. price lists), installing the SparkLayer Frontend, and completing a variety of launch checks.

The process does require a moderate level of technical experience and we're happy to advise on the best approach. You can also learn more about how onboarding works

Can I use SparkLayer on a custom platform?

Yes, providing you're able to integrate your platform with an external API. Learn more about the SparkLayer API

How much does SparkLayer cost?

Please refer to our pricing for more details.

How do I sign up to SparkLayer?

To get started, you can sign up for a free 14-day trial here. Alternatively, you can book a demo and we can run through how SparkLayer works.

How do I learn more about the SparkLayer features?

You can learn all about the full feature-set of SparkLayer in our SparkLayer Docs.

Does SparkLayer process payments?

No, SparkLayer does not handle payment processing in any way. Typically payments are handled offline within B2B eCommerce and managed by the business rules already set up within ERP, PIM, CRM or Finance systems, e.g. Pay on Account or Pay by Credit. As a result, we've designed SparkLayer to not support online payment processing at this stage.

Do I need to have an ERP, PIM, CRM or iPaaS integration to use SparkLayer?

No. With our powerful import tools, you can configure pricing and customer rules all through the SparkLayer Dashboard without the need to have a backend system in place.

If you are looking to use a backend system, SparkLayer works by connecting directly to your central data sources to retrieve your B2B data. If you're using an iPaaS solution (integration platform as a service), SparkLayer can connect directly to this instead, negating the need to connect to an ERP directly.

If you have the technical expertise, the SparkLayer API lets you connect to any system and we also have a range of 'ready-made' integrations. You can find our full list of integrations here.

Do I manage my online product catalogue within SparkLayer?

No, the product catalogue and category management is done through your existing eCommerce platform. SparkLayer simply 'overlays' your existing product catalogue with the B2B-specific data such as product pricing and pack sizes. It does this by associating data to the specific product SKU behind-the-scenes and then showing the appropriate content to the customer.

Can I create custom price-lists within SparkLayer?

Yes. Within the SparkLayer Dashboard, you can manually create price lists and upload pricing data for each one you create. You can learn more here

Can I customise how the SparkLayer Frontend looks?

Yes, you're able to change styling such as fonts and colours (e.g. of buttons) to match your current eCommerce store. SparkLayer also loads within the document body of your source code which means you can customise CSS too.

Do I need to hire a developer to integrate the SparkLayer?

We do recommend working with a technical partner to set up SparkLayer since it involves connecting to backend systems and implementing special code snippets into the source code of your store. Our team is happy to advise on the best approach and, with our Enterprise plan, this service is fully included.

How do I see what features are coming to SparkLayer?

You can see what's planned for SparkLayer in our quarterly roadmap. You can also see our latest feature updates in our What's New page!

Does SparkLayer work across different devices?

Yes, SparkLayer is fully compatible with mobile, tablet, and desktop devices.

What support do you have?

We have full 24/7 support and you can contact our technical team at any point from your account.
