Web3 unlocked: thirdweb launches new CommerceKit

thirdweb partnered with Shopify to build an all-in-one framework that accelerates web3 development. thirdweb's CommerceKit empowers Shopify merchants to:

  • Unlock new revenue streams and customer experiences
  • Embed web3 commerce and loyalty experiences into storefronts
  • Create and sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for exclusive products, discounts, pre-sale access, IRL shopping experiences, and more

From NFTs to tokengating, web3 is fundamentally changing how we do commerce. The world’s most creative, leading-edge brands are ready to dive in, but their developers don't have the tools they need to build these new customer experiences.

That’s why thirdweb is launching CommerceKit, an all-in-one developer framework for building web3 commerce apps. CommerceKit includes:

  • Ready-to-deploy contracts for popular web3 commerce use cases, including tokengated commerce and split revenue for multi-brand collaborations
  • Custom contracts with ContractKit which streamlines the smart contract building process
  • Unified customer profiles that include both off-chain and on-chain data through the Auth SDK
  • True multi-chain support for over 700 different blockchains—without any code changes
  • [Coming soon] Integration with any wallet in just one line of code through Wallets SDK

CommerceKit opens doors for merchants looking to deliver unforgettable web3 customer experiences at scale. CommerceKit could be a good fit if your business:

  • Has high demand for limited edition products
  • Hopes to attract and engage new customers through cross-brand collaborations
  • Is looking to reward loyal customers in innovative ways, like exclusive tokengated products, discounts, and even IRL shopping experiences
CommerceKit Announcement

“We’ve spent the last 18 months working closely with Web3 developers and brands interested in building blockchain apps. It became clear that integrating Web3 with commerce had huge demand and we believe Shopify is the best possible partner we could work with to build these tools,” says Furqan Rydhan, CEO and Co-founder at thirdweb. “We’re excited to be combining our best-in-class Web3 development tools with Shopify’s commerce tools, and we truly believe this will kickstart the Web3 commerce revolution.”

“As a merchant, understanding your customers and finding new buyer segments is mission-critical for running a successful business,” said Alex Danco, Director of Product at Shopify. “We're excited to partner with thirdweb, the fastest shipping team in Web3, to help make smart contracts and Web3 wallet addresses an essential part of the commerce and loyalty toolkit.”

CommerceKit is part of a larger strategic partnership between thirdweb and Shopify that aims to unlock web3 for all Shopify merchants. Shopify invested in thirdweb’s Series A funding round in August 2022 and the teams have been working together since. CommerceKit is available now to Shopify merchants.
