Welcome to Custom Blocks, here's what you need to know
Initial Release (SDK Version 1)
This documentation covers the complete set of capabilities for Version 1 of Custom Blocks' underlying SDK. This SDK is the backbone that connects your Custom Block to Tapcart's native mobile apps.
What are Custom Blocks?
Custom Blocks allow you to bring one of a kind eCommerce experiences to Tapcart apps. This could be anything from embedded media, to a fully integrated shopping experience. Following the concept of Tapcart Blocks, Custom Blocks are drag n' drop-able components that can be placed anywhere on a homepage or product detail page. They are best used when creating experiences that are unique to a particular brand or need.

While this is far from an exhaustive list, Custom Blocks can be used to pursue implementations of:
- Marketing opt-ins
- In-app content
- Product recommendations
- Product reviews
- Product bundling
- Personalized banners
- Raffle entries
and the list goes on...
