Getting started with the v3.0 beta

It’s been a long road, but here we are. Now, we’d love to get your feedback. You can get started with the v3.0 right here. But first, a bit of context.

With this new Snipcart version, we aim to achieve three goals:

  • Offer next level checkout & cart template customization.
  • Let developers work with the stack of their choice, without compromise.
  • Create the most kickass e-commerce development UX on the market.

To get there, we had to rethink many things, including:

  • Improving the way the cart can be customized.
  • Rewriting our payment service to better accommodate a myriad of payment gateways and methods.
  • Automating our documentation generation as much as possible to prevent errors & outdated information.

Plus, we’re proud to offer a newly designed, optimized default checkout flow:

Now it's your turn to get started. We’ve created a GitHub repo to harvest feedback and bugs from our beta testers. Simply create an issue right here!

Note that the v3.0 only runs with Stripe as a payment gateway, for the moment. The Snipcart account used to test will need to be linked to Stripe even if you are in Test mode.

We still have a few things to work on during the beta:

  • Customer dashboard implementation
  • Other payment gateways integration
  • Inventory management
  • Documentation polish
