Shopify updates 

Automatically capture payment per fulfilment (May 30)

Shopify has introduced a feature to automatically capture payments when each part of an order is fulfilled. This means brands can enhance their financial reporting by recording revenue as it is earned. Collecting payment only when items are delivered meets customer expectations and can improve trust and satisfaction.

Brand benefit:

Improved cash flow management: Capturing payments per fulfilment helps maintain a steady cash flow, as revenue is recorded incrementally rather than in a lump sum.

Enhanced customer trust: Customers appreciate paying only for items received, which can lead to increased loyalty and repeat purchases.

Accurate financial reporting: Recording revenue as it is earned provides a more precise financial overview, aiding in better decision-making and financial planning.

Reduced chargebacks: By aligning payment captures with deliveries, brands can minimise disputes and chargebacks.

Ship to pickup points in the UK and Spain (May 31)

Merchants in the UK and Spain can now enjoy enhanced shipping options with Shopify Shipping. In the UK, merchants can ship to over 7,000 Evri pickup points (ParcelShops), and in Spain, to Correos locations nationwide.

Brand benefit: 

Increased convenience: Customers can choose a pickup location that suits their schedule. The likelihood of missed deliveries decreases, reducing the hassle of rescheduling.

Expanded reach: Offering multiple pickup points helps merchants attract a broader audience, including those who prefer or require flexible delivery options.

Improved Shipping Options for Subscriptions (June 03)

Merchants will soon be able to offer buyers more flexible shipping options on subscription orders. Buyers can choose from multiple shipping methods for their first shipment, with recurring shipments defaulting to the cheapest option. This new feature will be available in carts that include both one-time and subscription products.

Brand benefit: 

Enhanced customer experience: Flexibility in shipping choices meets diverse customer needs and preferences, increasing satisfaction.

Cost efficiency: Defaulting to the cheapest shipping option for recurring orders helps customers save on shipping costs, making subscriptions more attractive.

Checkout Blocks is now a Shopify App (June 03)

Shopify has acquired Checkout Blocks, a no-code tool that helps merchants customise their checkout. Announced by Checkout Blocks founder Gil Greenberg, the acquisition will now make the company's Starter plan free for Shopify Plus brands.

Gain unparalleled flexibility to design branded checkouts with the following features:

  • Upload custom fonts and favicons
  • Reorder, hide, and rename delivery and payment methods
  • Offer order and shipping discounts (previously in the Script Editor app)
  • Use address blockers
  • Add content blocks, banners, warnings, and trust icons
  • Incorporate custom fields, terms and conditions, gift messaging, date pickers, birthday fields, special instructions, and more

New: Sort filter values in the Shopify Search & Discovery app (June 12)

Shopify's Search & Discovery app now allows you to customise the order of filter values on your collection and search result pages, enhancing navigation for your customers.

Key Features:

Automatic sorting: Display filter values in ascending order, alphabetically or numerically.

Manual sorting: Customise the order of your filter values or use the “Reorder for me” option to have Shopify Magic rearrange them.

Previously available only through third-party apps, this feature is now integrated into Shopify, making it easier for you to manage and improve your store navigation. 

Collective retailers can sync more product data from suppliers (June 14)

Retailers importing products from suppliers via Collective will now receive richer information, simplifying the process of selling these products online or through channels like Meta or Google.

New Product Attributes:

  • Product Category
  • HS Code

  • Country Code

All attributes will be synchronised upon import, with the compare-at price continuously updated to reflect any supplier changes. 

This enhancement streamlines product management and ensures up-to-date information for your store.

Collect deposits at checkout (June 21)

Shopify's B2B merchants can now boost their cash flow with a new deposit feature. You can set a percentage-based deposit required at checkout, tailored for each company location. This deposit applies to all orders, streamlining your financials.

Setting up is simple: just head to a company location in your admin, click “Edit payment terms” under Customisations, and enable “Require deposit on orders created at checkout.” Enter your chosen deposit percentage here. The remaining balance will follow the payment terms already assigned to the location.

Drive up to 2x more retargeting conversions with Shopify Audiences v2.3 (June 21)

Shopify announces the release of Audiences v2.3, featuring enhanced retargeting capabilities. The latest updates have proven to double the size of retargeting audiences for most merchants, leading to up to two times more conversions per marketing pound spent.
