Web banners: use cases library abandoned basket



To work with banners, first, they need to be set by the Meiro team:

1. Activation of the endpoint in the Meiro Events (ME) system should be implemented in order to collect events.

2. Meiro Events API connection must be set in the Administration/Configurations/Settings tab

3. The Channels/Web tabs must be enabled by the administrator for your user role

4. For native banners, it is required to place a DOM element with a unique ID in the HTML code of the website where the banner will be displayed.

In order for this use case to work, it is necessary to investigate with the Meiro team possible solutions and analyze data architecture. 

  1. To use abandoned basket web banner templates, it is important to store the information about the product in the basket (e.g., product name, price, URL, URL of product’s image, etc.)  with the timestamp of the last time the customer added the product to the basket. Information can be stored in the cookies or local storage or received through API calls (preferable is browser storage).
  2. Also, there must be a way to set what product is returned in the response. For example, through the client's API, which returns information about the products in response.

Warning: This use case covers data stored under the client's API. If you store data information in cookies or local storage, more code changes will be required. Turn to the Meiro team for help.

Warning: please stay in touch with the Meiro team when setting this web banner up.

Remember: the web banner is real-time personalized for each customer, based on data extracted by the Meiro Audience API. Example below.

1. The use case that can be covered
2. Example of conditions to set

Warning: Please keep in mind that each client may have a different setup. Below is just an example of the possible setup. For more details, please contact the Meiro team.

Select the condition “Server: HTTP request”. This condition is individually defined by the client based on the individual client’s architecture and defines what should be displayed in the web banner.

Example of the setup with client’s API with cookie:

Insert URL to the client’s API that contains cookies about products in the basket (e.g., https://my-store.com/product_api?items={{cookie:YourBasketCookieName}}). 

Check that the path to the first element of the product array ‘is set’. In the response, there is an array called products, check that the pathproducts[0]’ is set (the first element of the products array exists, the array is not empty).

3. Variables

Variables that are highlighted in the HTML code are dependent on the structure of the response to Server: HTTP condition described above and it is possible to adjust them to custom use cases.


Example of variables in the HTML template:

  • checkoutURL -  is an URL where the user will be directed after clicking on the web banner.
  • getProductFromResponse - is a function that extracts the product information from the response and returns results, depending on what data is stored under API.
4. HTML code
