Questions & Answers.

What Shopify plan do I need to be on to use SparkLayer?

SparkLayer works on all versions of Shopify, from Shopify Basic right through to Shopify Plus. All you need is an active Shopify store and you're good to go.

How does SparkLayer compare to Shopify's own B2B solution?

A good question! SparkLayer is designed to work for merchants using any Shopify plan and it's important to note that "B2B on Shopify" is only available to Shopify Plus merchants. We've a full guide here on the differences and how it compares to using SparkLayer.

How do I install SparkLayer on my Shopify store?

The first step is to install the official SparkLayer for Shopify App. Once you've installed this on your Shopify store, our Onboarding Process then guides you through all the steps to get SparkLayer up and running: from setting up B2B price lists and customer groups, to installing special code snippets within your Shopify storefront theme.

See our Shopify installation guide.

Can you help install SparkLayer on my Shopify store?

Yes, we have an onboarding service that can assist you during the setup process. To get started, you can contact our technical support.

If you're signed up to the Professional or Enterprise plans, our team will also assist in the full onboarding process, from connecting to your B2B data through to configuring your Shopify store.

Do I need to have a separate Shopify store to use Sparklayer?

The short answer is "it depends". SparkLayer is designed to work on your existing Shopify store, meaning there's no need to set up a new store or duplicate content. There are a number of limitations to be aware of however, and we've put together a short guide to run through what to be aware of.

Can I run my B2C store alongside my B2B store?

Yes! It's possible to install SparkLayer onto your existing Shopify B2C store (i.e. retail), meaning you can run both B2C and B2B on the same store. We call this a 'hybrid setup' and we've a guide here that explains how works.

When your B2B customers sign in, they simply see the special SparkLayer frontend widgets that allow them to see their prices and place orders.

Sometimes it can be better to separate out your B2B store onto a secondary Shopify store and we've detailed some of the common reasons.

Can I use SparkLayer with my development store?

Yes! If you're setting up SparkLayer on a development store (e.g. a test account), we can enable a special developer-mode that lets you use SparkLayer until you're ready to activate a billing plan. Please contact us for more details.

Do I need to have a backend system (e.g. ERP) connected to Shopify to use SparkLayer?

No, SparkLayer can work without having to have a backend system in place (e.g. ERP, CMS, PIM). Once you've installed SparkLayer, you can set up B2B price lists and B2B customer rules all within the SparkLayer Dashboard. Learn more here.

If you have a backend system in place, it's possible to connect this with SparkLayer to automate B2B data directly from within your systems. You can see our latest integrations or explore the SparkLayer API.

Do I need to install SparkLayer multiple times if I have additional Shopify stores?

If you have additional Shopify stores that require SparkLayer, it's necessary to install SparkLayer on each one. Please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss how this works as well as pricing.

How much does SparkLayer cost?

Please refer to our pricing for more details.

How long does SparkLayer take to set up?

If you're using our built-in tools to manage your pricing and customers, it's possible to set up SparkLayer in a matter of hours (or less!). Our team is on-hand to guide you through the set up process and can even help set up on your Shopify store for you.

For most extensive integrations - typically merchants using our Enterprise plan that require backend connections - set up times vary and we'll work closely with you to create a full project plan.

Is SparkLayer compatible with other Shopify apps?

Yes, SparkLayer can work alongside other Shopify apps you may have installed on your Shopify store. It's important to be aware that SparkLayer will adjust the pricing on your Shopify store, so you'll need to make sure this is accommodated for with any apps that may do similar. If you have any queries, please contact us and our technical team will be able to advise.

How do I customise my Shopify store to make it B2B-friendly?

Once you're install SparkLayer, there are a variety of ways you can make your Shopify store even more B2B friendly. These include: having a login screen, B2B registration forms, products and navigation that only show to B2B customers, displaying B2B content on product detail pages, and much more.

Read our guide on Shopify customisations you can implement.

What if I have more extensive B2B customisations?

If you're looking to implement more extensive B2B customisations on your Shopify store, please contact us and we'll be happy to recommend a partner to assist.

Will SparkLayer slow my website down?

No. For performance, the SparkLayer Frontend only loads when a valid B2B customer successfully logs into a website; for your standard (B2C) customers, no code is loaded at all. When a B2B customer logs in, all loading of the interfaces is asynchronous which means a negligible impact on page load times and performance even though SparkLayer is a hosted third-party solution. The result is the end customer will have a rapid experience browsing products and placing orders.
