Ever visit a new online shopping website and had to fill in all your details like name, phone number, address payment information just to buy a t-shirt or a new charger. With the increase in the number of e-commerce platforms, users are forced to enter the same details during checkout, which is time-consuming and often leads to the buyers re-consider their idea of purchase.

Wouldn’t be easier to have a single platform manage all your multiple addresses and payment information for you which could be used by other platforms for a one-click checkout?

What it does

With horizon’s one-click checkout, all you need to do is select your preferred address and payment mode from the dropdown, and enter the one-time password which you will receive on your phone and you are good to go! If you have multiple addresses, the horizon will suggest to you the one closest to you. This saves time for the buyer and decreases the chance of an abandoned shopping cart. Profit for both the buyer and the seller.

How we built it

  • We used Rapyd Checkout Toolkit to generate a checkout page (customized with our functionality).

  • We used Rapyd API to generate a Checkout Page Object for every checkout to be made by any user.

  • We built our own Chrome Extension so that any eCommerce website/product page site can use it for fast and easy checkout.

  • We used Express,MongoDB to manage the user data, registering on our platform and then using it for fast checkout.

  • We used React and Context (for managing global state) on client side to make a single page application with a good UI.

Challenges we ran into

  • Learning about Rapyd APIs and Toolkit in very less time.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • We could come up with a platform that can provide a fast checkout experience not only limited to it but which can also be used by various other eCommerce sites.

What we learned

  • We learned to make powerful checkout systems using Rapyd APIs and toolkit.
  • Learned to make chrome extensions.

What's next for Horizon

In the future, we plan to show relevant coupons, and gamify the experience of using horizon which will help you save money while saving time and boredom!
