4️⃣ Generate dynamic checkout link

The first feature of panda checkout is to generate a dynamic checkout link with one simple external request.
You can generate a one time payment for Stripe(Manychat tutorials here & Chatrace tutorials here).
You can generate a dynamic Stripe subscription payment(Manychat tutorials here & Chatrace tutorials here).
If you are using Stripe for the payment, you can customize your checkout with your own logo, favicon, and even pre-fill customer email on the checkout page.
You can also choose to ask for the billing/shipping address on the checkout page, and as your customer typing their address, Google autocomplete will activate, how cool is that?

5️⃣ Set up checkout hook in panda checkout

In order to create a smooth checkout experience, you need to add platform, platform_customer_id, and flow into your external request… and those 3 important parameters tell panda checkout, which platform & which user it should “talk back”.

Finally you can achieve:
1. Send a dynamic checkout link back to your chatbot(Manychat tutorials & Chatrace tutorials).
2. Send abandoned cart or cancel checkout follow up flow(Manychat tutorials & Chatrace tutorials).
3. Send purchase confirmation(Manychat tutorials & Chatrace tutorials).
