Violet Connect is a hosted commerce platform onboarding tool with a brandable experience. Channels will direct merchants to this experience where they will complete the necessary steps to connect their store to Violet. Once connected, the merchants catalog will become available for use by the channel that initialized the connection. The channel will be responsible for providing Violet with their branding assets, and define their preferred configuration options, before the Onboarding Wizard can be enabled.
Violet Connect is currently limited to Shopify merchants. Our short-term roadmap includes adding the rest of our integrations, improvements to Violet Connect, and supporting additional merchants.
The channel will be responsible for providing the following values that will populate and configure the onboarding experience. In a future release of the Violet dashboard these values will be configured dynamically by the channel. Until then the channel must deliver them to Violet through alternative delivery channels that will be discussed during the application process.
- Subdomain (ex. *myapp.violetconnect.me)*
- App Name
- App Description
- Square Logo or Icon
- Supported Commerce Platforms List
- More Info URL
- Redirect URL (where the merchant should return to upon success)
Once these values have been provided to Violet they will be applied to your Violet app’s configuration. If you’re ready to get started and provide Violet with these values, you can complete this form to begin the process.
Commerce Platform App Credentials
In addition to the branding assets, Violet will require any credentials or relevant assets (plugins, links to marketplace listings, etc) required to communicate with or connect to the commerce platform. Instructions will be provided on a per-platform basis so that requirements are clearly defined.
Once you have completed the above prerequisites you will be ready to go live. Today, going live will simply be the process of Violet enabling your app to go live and then you providing your merchants with a link to the onboarding experience.
