BigCommerce - Rokt Ecommerce guide
Rokt Ecommerce is a plug-and-play solution that applies Rokt’s proprietary technology to the BigCommerce 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.

Enabling and testing the confirmation page placement
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.
