Shopping service suggestions are now available when purchasing Shopify Shipping Labels (Jan 26)

Shopify has improved how shipping services are pre-selected when buying shipping labels. A suggested shipping service will be pre-selected based on similar orders in your store, rather than always pre-selecting the last used service. This will increase the accuracy and speed of buying shipping labels.

If your customer selected a specific shipping service at checkout, that will automatically be pre-selected when buying a shipping label, if available.

Retarget twice as many potential buyers with Shopify Audiences v2.2 (Jan 31)

The release of Shopify Audiences v2.2 means improved retargeting boost lists, new benchmarks data, and their best performing algorithms yet!

Improved visibility of retailer cancellation requests for Collective Suppliers (Jan 31)

On their orders landing page, suppliers will now notice a badge displayed next to the order number, indicating an order cancellation request and identifying the retailer who initiated the request. This badge ensures suppliers have immediate visibility into cancellation requests, enabling them to take necessary actions promptly and efficiently.

The badge will read as "Retailer Name has requested to cancel this order. Reason for cancellation." The reason for cancellation will also be visible within the order timeline and notes section on the orders page.

Collective Suppliers gain quick visibility into the status of product sharing (Jan 31)

The maximum number of products you can offer in a fixed bundle has increased from 10 to 30. Offer larger bundles using the Shopify Bundles app or any fixed bundle created using the Admin API.

Media Versioning (Jan 31)

A new "Revert to original" button has been added to the product media editor so you can revert image edits after saving. It’s no longer required to reupload the original product image to revert any changes. 

Improve accuracy of in-stock products in different markets with fulfillable inventory (Jan 31)

Also newly released is fulfillable inventory to help merchants who sell products across multiple shipping zones by ensuring their customers can only purchase items that can be shipped to their location.

Organisation owners in Shopify Plus are now able to transfer organisation ownership to other users within their organisations, without having to contact Shopify Support.

As an organisation owner, you can navigate to your own user profile page in the Shopify Admin, click "Transfer ownership" and follow the instructions on the screen to complete the transfer. 

Geolocation app removal (Feb 12)

On December 1st, 2024, Shopify’s Geolocation app will sunset, and the app will automatically uninstall.

Shopify’s platform has recently made advancements that have reduced the need for Geolocation app’s consent-based localisation feature for shops that use dedicated domains/shared domains. These advancements include:

For those who currently have the Geolocation app installed and don’t have an EU top-level domain, Shopify recommends enabling the above features in Settings -> Markets -> Preferences. This will effectively bypass the Geolocation functionality on your storefront, and then you can safely remove the Geolocation app from your store.

Note - If you sell to customers in the European Union via an EU top-level domain, e.g. example.fr or example.de, you will still require a consent-based strategy to redirect buyers and should explore 3rd party options in the app store.
