Widget Code implementation


Widget for shipping method and pickup location selection.

The module is implemented as jQuery widget and is represented by popup window or inline in the webpage. This document describes only the inline theme.

The widget has several tabs. Each tab matches exactly one shipping method which is set up through the admin backend website and has its own shipping options. Every time when the user chooses a shipping option or changes the shipping method - an event is triggered. This event should be used by the developer who implements the widget to obtain the selection data.

When initializing the widget – request to the API is made, to obtain all the necessary data about the shipping methods in form of a JSON file. After the user makes a selection the event “optionChangedCallback” is triggered. The developer needs to specify the callback function, which will be responsible for further processing of the data returned by the widget. The function is described later in the document. When implementing the widget there are multiple options, which must be set correctly, so that the module can function properly. The following services and API are used:


  • Valid widget data API key - – use your account to login and get the key.
  • Valid Google map API key -


Html body section:

  <div id="widgetContainer"></div>

  <input type="button" id="openWidget" />
