The need for enabling a composable solution for brands to drive incremental revenue from high margin products through effective product placement for impulse shopping at checkout.

What it does

Provides a new purchase moment, previously lost through omnichannel purchases.
Brands are able to implement this new kerbside pick-up solution quickly and cost effectively, across any commerce platform.

How we built it

Custom backend application written in Javascript utilizing the Node.js framework, and hosted on Heroku. This handles customer management, authorization of customer via JWT, fetching of upsell products, email notification(s) through Sendgrid, and portions of the checkout interactions with Bold Checkout. BigCommerce was used as the ecommerce platform. Custom frontend application written in Javascript utilizing the React framework, and hosted on Netlify. This handles all visual customer facing interactions, along with payment pre-processing and pre-authorization through Bold Checkout of the customers order.

Challenges we ran into

The teams at Bold Commerce and Knit Agency were able to create API's that didn't exist prior to the project and can now be leveraged and is now GA for Bold headless Checkout. The teamwork across development and project deliverables allowed for a two-week turnaround to get this project live.

What we learned

What's next for Kerb-Up
