Create an eCommerce Store with Next.js and Stripe Checkout


Accept payments & sell products powered by Stripe and the best of the JAMStack

There are as many ways to build an e-commerce store on the internet as there are products to sell. One thing is for certain, e-commerce is here to stay and as professional developers we need to understand how to build fully custom stores for our clients using the best modern tools available.

  • React: flexible and customizable while following modern best practices
  • Next.js: lightening fast with guide rails to help your project perform like consumers expect
  • Stripe Checkout: let's you offload reams of complicated business logic to a trusted third party that maintains regulatory compliance, global payments, and a standard UX.

Your store will have well managed local component state using React Hooks and you'll also have clear and cohesive shared (global) state with React Context.

Finally you'll deploy your custom store to Vercel (the platform behind Next.js) as well as how to make your Next.js e-commerce store portable to deploy to other platforms.

By the end of this project, you’ll have your own dynamic eCommerce store with a working checkout flow.

  • Manage local state with React Hooks
  • Manage global state with React Context
  • Purchasing flow with Stripe Checkout

Getting Personal with Ecommerce, React, & the Static Web

Colby Fayock

Ecommerce depends on highly dynamic solutions personalizing experiences for customers from the price of a product to the total cost of that customer’s shopping cart. How can we leverage React and tools like Next.js to bring that dynamic experience to the static web?

In this talk, we’ll explore the challenges of ecommerce in a static world. We’ll talk about what tools are available to us and how we can take advantage of them to build dynamic web apps with a practical example of a Next.js app.
