Shopify just dropped Editions Winter 2023, boasting over 100 new products and updates available to merchants on the platform.
Here are some of the highlights:
The checkout you know and trust is getting a major overhaul. This year, we're rolling out an all-new, one-page checkout. Inspired by Shop Pay's proven conversion, it's faster, higher-converting, and exactly what your customers expect.
- Fewer fields to enter make it faster for customers to complete their purchase.
- Fewer page loads mean less friction for customers, which leads to higher conversion.
Communicate reliable, fast delivery by installing the Shop channel and adding the Shop Promise badge and delivery dates to your store.
- Display smart delivery dates predicted by Shopify that are backed by a limited guarantee for your customers if they’re missed.
- Help customers check out with confidence and increase conversion by up to 25%.
