What are Dynamic Variables?
Dynamic variables enable you to personalize content for the user in your mobile app. As consumers shop your store you can leverage the content you know about them to power custom blocks making them more relevant and likely to be engaged.
In this article:
- Learn the types of dynamic variables you can use to personalize experiences

Supported Dynamic Variables
Tapcart currently supports 4 types of dynamic variables:
- Customer variables
- Device variables
- Product variables
- Cart variables
Customer variables represent Shopify users’ account information. This can be used to create personalized homepages or marketing opt-ins.
Unique to the customers’ device, these variables can be used to easily locate stores nearby or run geographic specific promotions.
The ultimate fun tool, product variables bring your uses cases to new levels when using distinct product information that can be viewed on the product detail page. Offering customers product recommendations, collection look-books, and more, these are the variables that will make it easy to show your customer more of what you have to offer.

There are a few considerations to keep in mind when determining if custom blocks are the best solution for your brand. Although a powerful, low-code solution, custom blocks do not support:
- Customizing app navigation
- Customizing style across the app
- Customizing the cart, checkout area, or member account area
- Adding camera or general augmented reality (AR )needs
- Ie., Virtual Try On
- Using react or Vue JS code for implementation
- Placement for custom blocks is only supported on the homepage or product detail page
