Rokt Ecommerce is a plug-and-play solution that applies Rokt’s proprietary technology to the WooCommerce checkout. It enables you to serve relevant offers from Rokt’s closed ecosystem of well-known advertisers to your customers after they’ve made a purchase. Every time a customer opts in to an offer, you get paid.
Before installing the Rokt Ecommerce extension, make sure that:
- The WooCommerce plugin is already installed and activated in WordPress.
- Your hosting environment must meet WooCommerce server recommendations, including PHP 7.4 or later.
In this guide, you will be taken through the following steps to get started with Rokt Ecommerce:
- Installing the application.
- Enabling and testing your upsell page placement.
To install the Rokt Ecommerce application, follow these steps:
- Log in to your WordPress dashboard.
- Go to Plugins > Add New.
- Do one of the following:
- To install the plugin automatically, search for the Rokt Ecommerce plugin and open the plugin page.
- To install the plugin manually, click Upload Plugin at the top of the screen and select the .zip file from your local files. The Rokt Ecommerce plugin file can be downloaded from the WordPress Plugins page.
- Click Install Now.
- When installation is complete, click Activate Plugin at the bottom of the page.
Once your account setup is finalized, you will be prompted to proceed through the following sections of the onboarding process:
- Welcome page
- How it works
- Tell us about your industry - Select your industry verticals and product category from the available dropdown list. This information helps ensure that the offers shown are relevant and that your competitors are not displayed.
- How to get started - Click Go to placement settings and follow the instructions in Enabling the confirmation page placement.
In order to generate additional revenue from Rokt offers on your confirmation page, you must first enable the confirmation page placement. To do so:
- Navigate to the Placements tab.
- Click Enable Placement.
If you have not already provided your payment information, a payment information page will appear where you can enter your details to receive payouts from Rokt. If you would like to receive payments via PayPal but do not have a PayPal account, you can still enter the email address that you wish to receive payments through, and PayPal will help you create an account once your first payment has been processed. Learn more about payouts here.
A preview of what the confirmation page placement looks like on your confirmation page is shown on the same page where the placement was enabled. To view the placement on your actual confirmation page and see what customers see, follow the below steps:
- Make sure the confirmation page placement is enabled (see steps above).
- Wait 10 minutes after enabling the placement before conducting a test purchase.
- Make a test purchase on your store using:
