Shopify Unite, Improvements and Updates

We reviewed Online Store 2.0 for you, which was released in the Shopify Unite 2021 program recently. The highlights of the changes made in terms of experience and function:

1-) App Store Commissions
2-) Online Store 2.0
3-) Checkout
4-) Application Development
5-) Storefront API

1-) App Store Commissions

Announcing that no commission will be charged for apps with an annual revenue of less than $1 million, published by the developers on the Shopify App Store, Shopify has reduced the commission rate from 20% to 15% for apps earning more than this amount.

2- Online Store 2.0

Modular Structure

An important step was taken to make the entire site modular, and the feature of editing the section developed for one page was introduced on all other pages via the customization panel.

Application Management

A separate area for managing applications has been added to the custom page. This eliminates the need to access liquid file for integration and editing.

Metafield Improvements

More than one special content area may be needed on the product detail page of stores with a specially designed front. The first method used in this case: Metafield. With the online store 2.0, Metafield was made easier to use when a large number of product and content areas were needed, and additions were made in pdf and image formats.

Debut, which is used in half of Shopify stores as the default theme, has left its place to Dawn. Dawn, which simplifies its management processes, has a 35% better score than Debut in page load time.

Github Integration

Online Store 2.0 aims to increase collaboration by providing version synchronization with Github integration, manual syncing with preview link from local server, or sharing without sending compressed files.

Shopify CLI
You can safely develop your theme, make CSS or Liquid changes while the code is running, and publish your site from the command line.

3- Checkout

Payment Extensions

The checkout page customization option, which is currently only used by Shopify Plus customers, has been opened to all users with some features. It offers a completely new way to distribute your solutions to multiple customers at the same time by allowing you to access and change line items, discounts, customer information, Metafields, cart properties.

Post-Purchase Payment Extension
It allows developers to create a post-purchase experience directly within Shopify Checkout.

Payment Platform

It has announced that it will release a new payment platform in the fall of 2021. The new payment platform will replace legacy integration points and allow you to build payment gateways as Shopify apps.

4- Application Development

Documentation has been renewed to make it easier to find needed information. In order to increase intelligibility in the trainings, innovations were made in the programming language block layout and typography. Apart from these, the copy-paste function has been added to the reference codes.

Developer Console
Currently, App Bridge Admin extensions are not testable in real stores with real data without sending the extension to Shopify’s CDN. Now the Developer Console can provide a better, faster and more realistic developer experience when building and testing App Bridge Admin extensions.

Application Discoverability

Application ads can now be changed in terms of color and block layout. In addition, the Shopify App Store home page will be personalized and transformed into a structure where direct customer-application contact can be established.

5- Storefront API

International Pricing

International pricing transactions in stores launched by Shopify this year can now be regulated with the Storefront API.

Local Delivery

Methods used by thousands of vendors, such as local pickup, are now more permanent. Using the Storefront API, it is now possible for visitors to find nearby stores and inquire about the stocks in this store.

With the release of the July version, you can edit all Metafields such as products, orders, customers via the Storefront API.
