Setting up Interactive Player on Shopify

This article outlines the steps to successfully add the Stage TEN Interactive Player onto a Shopify Store webpage, enabling live, interactive commerce! All the steps listed below must be completed under the Shopify Store’s Admin Page.

Click here for steps on how to configure your entry point for the Shop App.

Add Interactive Player

Install Sales Channel

This step is only required if the Stage TEN Sales Channel is not installed on the Shopify Store.   You will need to accept the usage charges.  Note: There are no monthly charges. 

If it already is, then proceed to ‘Obtain Channel ID’.

  1. Go to Stage TEN Live Shopping, in the Shopify App Store.
  2. Click Add App.
  3. You will be prompted to create a Stage TEN account, and then redirected automatically to your Stage TEN Dashboard.

Note: Any products that will be featured during a live stream must be included in both the Stage TEN and Shop Sales Channels.

Click here for steps on how to make products available.

Obtain Channel ID

The Channel ID is an identifier unique to each Stage TEN account. Once the new Stage TEN section has been created for the store, we will use it there.

  1. Go to the Overview section of the Stage TEN Sales Channel.
  2. Locate Embed: within the Watch your broadcast section.
  3. Click Copy and paste this information somewhere where it is easily accessible for later:
    1. The information should resemble this (note that this is just an example): 
      <iframe src="https://play.stageten.tv/embed/cd56ae07-7cf3-4d4c-bffa-bdeb1afccf00" title="Stage TEN Interactive Player" allow="fullscreen; autoplay" frameborder="0" style="width: 1410px; height: 600px"></iframe>
    2. The information highlighted in red is what is required for the next steps. This is the Channel ID.

Create New Section

Here we will create the new liquid section that will house the Stage TEN Interactive Player.

  1. Go to the Online Store Sales Channel. 
  2. Click the ellipsis (...) next to the Customize button, then Edit code.
  3. Locate the Sections folder and expand it.
  4. Click on Add a new section.
  5. With the liquid radio button selected, enter “stage-ten-player”
  6. Click Done.

Edit Page Code

Before proceeding with the next steps, be sure to clear out the default code that is autogenerated with the newly created section.

  1. In the empty section, paste the following code:

  "name": "Stage TEN Live Player",

    title="Stage TEN Interactive Player"
    style="width: 90%; height: 100%; position: relative; left: 0; top: 0"
    allow="fullscreen; autoplay"
    const updateSize = () => {
      const stageTenWrapper = document.getElementById('stage-ten-wrapper')
      const currentWidth = stageTenWrapper.clientWidth
      if (currentWidth > 1000) {
        // Desktop
        stageTenWrapper.style['height'] = 'min(calc(' + Math.round(currentWidth * 1.1).toString() + 'px - 600px), calc(100vh - 150px))'
      } else {
        // Mobile
        stageTenWrapper.style['height'] = 'min(' + Math.round(currentWidth * (16/9)).toString() + 'px, calc(100vh - 50px))'
    window.addEventListener('load', updateSize)
    window.addEventListener('resize', updateSize)
