Integration Steps for BigCommerce

Please note that whilst the modifications detailed in this guide are quite minor, they do involve modifying the HTML/JavaScript code of your website, so you may prefer to hand this task over to your frontend developer.

This document will guide you through the platform specific aspects of integrating Klevu Recommendations with your BigCommerce store. Once you are finished with this guide, please refer to the generic instructions for other aspects like creating a banner and adding it to your store, editing a banner, etc.

Integration Steps

To include the core Klevu JS Libraries required, edit your theme -> templates -> layout -> base.html and add the JS inclusion scripts referenced in the instructions below. Add the following to the end of the <head/> section of your template.

<script type="text/javascript">
{{#if page_type '===' 'category'}}
var klevu_page_meta = {
'pageType': "category",
'categoryName':'{{#each breadcrumbs}}{{#unless @first}}{{name}}{{#unless @last}};{{/unless}}{{/unless}}{{/each}}',
'categoryUrl': '{{category.url}}',
};
{{/if}}
{{#if page_type '===' 'product'}}
var klevu_page_meta = {
"pageType": "pdp",
"itemName": "{{product.title}}",
"itemUrl": "{{product.url}}",
"itemId": "{{product.id}}",
"itemGroupId": "{{product.id}}",
"itemSalePrice": "{{product.price.with_tax.value}}",
"itemCurrency": "{{currency_selector.active_currency_code}}"
};
{{/if}}
{{#if page_type '===' 'cart'}}
var cartRecords = [];
{{#each cart.items}}
{{#if type '===' 'Item'}}
cartRecords.push({ 'itemId':'','itemGroupId': {{product_id}} });
{{/if}}
{{/each}}
var klevu_page_meta = {
'pageType': "cart",
'cartRecords': cartRecords
};
{{/if}}
</script>
<script src="https://js.klevu.com/core/v2/klevu.js"></script>
<script src="https://js.klevu.com/recs/v2/klevu-recs.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
klevu.interactive(function () {
var options = {
powerUp: {
recsModule: true
},
recs: {
apiKey: 'klevu-12345'
},
analytics: {
apiKey: 'klevu-12345'
}
};
klevu(options);
});
</script>

Please replace klevu-12345 with your own Klevu JS Api Key. Also, for any customers already using Klevu JavaScript Library (aka JSv2) you may already have the klevu.js library included, and a klevu.interactive initialisation. If so, please merge the powerUp and recs nodes into that existing implementation you already have. The minimum version of Klevu JS Library for Klevu Recommendations to work correctly is 2.3.5+.
