What’s New for Partners and Developers at Shopify
On September 25, we launched our new one -page checkout to all Shopify merchants who have upgraded to checkout extensibility. It’s a redesigned experience that’s shorter, faster, and more intuitive for buyers. Rest assured, your extensibility-based customizations are fully compatible with the one -page checkout. We do recommend you test your app if it’s built for the three -page checkout to ensure you are providing the best merchant and buyer experience across both layouts.
Admin action extensions enable you to deeply integrate your apps with the Shopify admin so merchants can interact with your app without having to switch contexts. Admin action extensions can be used to create and deploy transactional workflows that appear as modals on the Orders, Products, and Customers pages of Shopify admin.
It has been just over a year since we launched Hydrogenand Oxygen in general availability. Since then, our headless commerce stack has continued to evolve with the power of Remix and with significant enhancements to its performance and developer experience. Visit hydrogen.shopify.dev to learn more, and check out the links below to see what merchants are building with Hydrogen and to access development resources:
Shopify Functions now includes new values in their input query GraphQL schema, including a `shop` field , `localTime` field that provides the current date, and a `metafield` field that provides access to shop-level metafields. Function configuration also now uses target identifiers, making the configuration process more similar to configuring other app extensions.
Localization of function titles and descriptions is now supported. This enables functions displayed in the Shopify Admin, such as new discount types, to be easily translated into the merchant’s native language.
Checkoutextensibility is a better way to customize the Shopify Checkout that’s app-based, upgrade-safe, and more performant than checkout.liquid. It’s currently available for in-checkout pages and in developer preview for the thank you and order status pages.
For the month of October, join us on Discord for checkout extensibility AMAs every Thursday
between 1pm and 2pm EST. Plus, tune in on October 12 for a special preview of the upgrade experience on the thank you and order status page coming soon.

It’s now possible for merchants using Hydrogenor the Headless Channel in the admin to offer bundles with Shopify. Whether it’s creating fixed bundles and multipacks with our free app Shopify Bundles , using one of these updated bundle apps for more bundle support, or using our APIs (Shopify Plus merchants or Shopify partners only) to create a custom bundle offering, more merchants can increase their average order value and offer a more curated customer experience with product bundles on Shopify.
As of October 2023, all English -language primary app listings are automatically translated into 8 languages ( Brazilian
Portuguese, Danish , Dutch , French , German , Simplified Chinese , Spanish , and Swedish ) when submitted for publication in Shopify’s App Store . We have also added translations for any pre-existing untranslated listings. Automated translations can be overwritten by providing your own translated listings for any of those languages.
Translating listings not only improves the experience of our international merchants, but has proven to boost app installs in non-Englishspeaking markets by as much as 20% . To further maximize the effect, we’ve also built tools and partnered with translation providers to help you translate your app UI (see section below). Learn more about the new feature in our documentation.
Today, more than one in five Shopify merchants use our platform in a language other than English . In addition to rolling out automated translations for app listings (see section above), we have built tools and processes to translate your apps and reach the fast-growing international audience.
Now, you can use the i18n-ally extension for Visual Studio Code to greatly reduce the time and effort involved in preparing your app’s code for translation. Shopify has partnered with Lokalise to ensure i18n-ally compatibility with Shopify’s translation file format.
Once your app’s content is ready for translation, the next big task is finding the right translation provider that offers good value for money and meets the translation quality bar. Shopify recommends the following vendors (please follow the links below to book an introductory meeting):
The Shopify Plus Certified App Programworks with partners who have been reviewed for their quality and alignment with Plus merchant needs. We are pleased to announce that as of October we have another group of newly certified partners in our Plus Certified App Program in the following categories:
We now also have a Plus Certified Appguide in the Shopify App Store to help Plus merchants discover and learn more about all about the program. See all the partners who are currently certified at the link below.
Metaobjectslaunched earlier this year as a way to create custom objects for use on your storefront or for back office workflows. We launched a case study to show how Form Factory , an agency partner, used Shopify’s headless Hydrogen framework and metaobjects platform to 2X development speed and easily manage multiple storefronts.
Explore the case study below.

That’s all for this month. To stay up to date with changes that impact the Shopify platform and app development, subscribe to the Shopify developer changelog for real-time updates as they happen.
Introducing homepage ads on the Shopify App Store
You can now generate more demand for your apps by showcasing them on the homepage of the Shopify App Store. With a massive base of logged-in merchants visiting the Shopify App Store
each month, you can get in front of new merchants right when they’re starting to explore.
Just like search ads, our new homepage ads operate on a cost-per-click basis. This means that you only incur a cost if a merchant clicks on your homepage ad, giving you a cost-effective new solution for accelerating growth.
Soon, we’ll also be expanding ads from the homepage to category pages across the Shopify App Store, helping you drive discovery in a high-context setting.
Get full-funnel Google Analyticsattribution
We’ve added visibility into the app install event itself as part of our existing integration with Google Analytics. This addition enables you to more easily and confidently compare the performance of your Shopify App Store ads with your other marketing activities outside of Shopify.
In addition to having full visibility into the app install event, you can also now tie the app install event to a ShopID, enabling richer insights on the type of merchants that are installing your app.
Ensure your contact information is up to date to comply with “business imprint” regulations
All Shopify app/theme partners have the legal obligation to display business information (name, email, phone number, geographical address) to merchants, as per regulations coming into effect by January 1, 2024. If you need to make changes, please do so in your partner dashboard.
Introducing the shopify theme console command
Curious about your Liquid code? Enhance your Liquid testing and evaluation experience in the Shopify CLI by using the new shopify theme console command. This tool makes debugging simpler, accelerates the feedback loop, and makes learning Liquid more intuitive.
The shopify theme console command allows you to experiment with Liquid filters and explore Liquidobject data structures using real store data.
Watch the demo video to see how it works, and learn more in the dev docs.
The Summer ’23 Editionis here!
The Summer ’23 Edition launched at the end of July, full of updates that make Shopify more extensible than ever. We’re focused on increasing opportunity, improving the developer experience, and making it easier for your apps to be discovered. Read our article on the Shopify Partner Blog to learn more about the improvements for developers via the link below, or keep reading for the highlights.
Build the best checkout experiences
We are introducing 17new APIs and updates to significantly enhance checkout extensibility. This allows you to build apps that can integrate more business logic, validate addresses, upsell subscriptions, and provide customized delivery options.
You can also catch a great conversation between Shopify RnDleaders, Mani Fazeli and Ilya Grigorik , and Coding with Jan on the why behind checkout extensibility and how it improves checkout customizations for developers and merchants alike, over on YouTube .
Build Hydrogenstores faster
You can spend even less time on boilerplate code and get up and running faster with the latest improvements to our React-based headless stack, Hydrogen + Oxygen. Starting a new Hydrogen project with the CLI now gives you more options: scaffold a full purchase journey with standard app routes, add your favorite styling library, configure language and currency settings, connect live product inventory with a single command, and more.
Hydrogenalso features pre-built components optimized for Remix for better performance, SEO, and developer experience—from cart, to image, product form, and pagination.
Exclusive to Shopify Plus, you can now connect your preferred observability service like DataDog , Splunk , or New Relic , and have full control of log monitoring, analysis, and retention.
Developapps faster and more easily
Build extension-only and organization-level custom apps
When building a custom app to create extensions for Functions or checkout, you no longer need to provide a web app, and Shopify takes on hosting the extensions. It is also now possible to install the same custom app on multiple stores within a Shopify Plusorganization.
Extend the Shopify admin
You can now create and test admin action and block extensions in your development store. These new extensions enable you to seamlessly integrate your app’s functionality into the Shopify admin by embedding workflows and UXon core admin pages. By giving merchants access to your app’s functionality without the need to navigate away from their current task, these extensions help merchants be more efficient and productive.
Admin actions and blocks can use direct APIaccess, enabling them to use the Admin GraphQL API without having to proxy the calls through your app’s backend, resulting in faster and more responsive apps.
Built for Shopify is now live
Merchants will now be able to find and install Built for Shopify apps in the Shopify App Store. Built for Shopify is a program that makes it easier for merchants to spot apps that look, feel, and perform like they’re part of Shopify—meaning they meet Shopify’s highest quality standards across performance, safety, usefulness, and ease of use.
An app that is Built for Shopifywill get a boost in search rankings, and will be recommended more frequently across the Shopify App Store and other merchant surfaces. We’ve put everything you need to know in one place in the Partner Dashboard , so you can get started making your app Built for Shopify easily.
Improvements to Shopify Functions
Build new types of Shopify Flow actions with return data
Your Flow actions can now return data into the Flow environment, allowing your merchants to build new types of automations making use of your app and data.
Several Flow actions make use of return data, allowing merchants to use data from other services. For example, the OpenAIconnector returns AI-generated text from OpenAI ‘s completion API. Flow’s "Get data" actions, including “Get order data,” return a list of objects that can be used in the workflow.
Build personalized headless experiences with the new Customer Account API
Take customer account management for headless stores to the next level with our new Customer AccountAPI, now accessible to both Hydrogen and Headless channels. It powers enhanced security and authentication with new passwordless single sign-on. The API also offers improved data consistency that paves the way for unlocking Shopify’s core features like returns, subscriptions, and B2B in headless storefront development.
Register now: Upcoming Summer ’23 Edition webinar
Join us on August 22at 1pm ET for a one-hour session with Shopfy ’s product experts, where they’ll provide high-impact updates and demos of key products from the Summer ‘ 23 Edition. The webinar is open to both partners and merchants, and the recording will be made available to anyone who registers but is unable to attend live.
A more convenient way to send app credits
You can now send app credits directly from your Partner Dashboardto any merchant who has previously installed your app, even if the app is now uninstalled. Once app credits are sent, they are automatically applied to future app charges from any installed app on the merchant’s account.
Build great apps with updated App Design Guidelinesand Polaris v12-beta
We’ve updated our App Design Guidelinesto provide more detail and clarity on the trickiest parts of app design like forms, marketing, and our newly launched admin UI extensions.
Alongside the redesigned Shopify admin, we also introduced a beta release of Polarisv12 (stable release coming September 2022 ). Developers can update now to get a head start on updating their app’s look and feel to blend seamlessly within the new admin experience.
Build your own search experience with the Storefront API
You can now use the StorefrontAPI to build a search experience that meets your commerce needs. Use features like predictive search so suggested results appear immediately as customers type in the search bar, and customized filtering so customers can easily refine their results.
Changes to B2B on Shopify pricing for new merchants
Starting August 9, 2023, merchants who begin using Shopify Plus on or after this date will have all B2B orders included in their GMV subject to a variable platform fee of 0.18% , including offline manual payments and draft orders. The minimum Plus platform fee remains $2,000 USD per month, calculated as a percentage of GMV. DTC transactions will continue to be subject to a variable platform fee of 0.25% . Please update your Shopify Plus materials to reflect this change.
Introducing the B2B Migration Kit
To prepare for the deprecation of the Plus Wholesale Channelon April 30, 2024 , we have a new B2B Migration Kit to help merchants migrate to B2B on Shopify. The kit includes checklists to evaluate a merchant’s wholesale needs, guidance on how to migrate customer and price lists, and other helpful tools.

Highly-integrated workflows that boost user engagement
New and creative point-of-sale workflows
Better app performance with faster load times
Learn more about POSUI extensions and the opportunities with building for point-of-sale in our blog post.
Theme developers can now add color schemes to themes
This update adds clarity and flexibility to the theme editing experience by allowing theme-defined and merchant-defined color schemes, adding a visual preview that enables merchants to more easily and predictably update theme colors, and allowing merchants to implement theme changes at the global, section, and block level within their theme.
A solution which will enable theme developers to specify how to migrate merchants’ theme data during the update process when introducing architecture changes (ex: changing scope of settings, modifying schema structure in other ways, and more) will be available later this summer.
Quickstart development stores for new Shopify Partner organizations
When a new Shopify Partnerorganization is created, Shopify automatically creates a development store called Quickstart. This store is a non-transferable development store that’s populated with generated test data. You can immediately use this store to test apps, themes, and custom storefronts.
You can access the Quickstart store from the stores list in Shopify CLI, or by logging into your partner account and finding the store on the Stores page. If you sign up for a Shopify Partner account with a verified business email address, then the Quickstart store is created automatically. Learn more in our developer documentation.
The Plus Wholesale Channelwill be deprecated on April 30, 2024
With the release of over a dozennew features since launch, B2B on Shopify is the future of selling wholesale on our platform. As a result, we are deprecating the Plus Wholesale Channel effective April 30, 2024 . Impacted merchants received communications on June 6 and
7, 2023, with information about our new B2B features and plans to sunset the wholesale channel, along with details about the migration process and a self-serve migration tool.
We ask that you reach out to your clients using the Plus Wholesale Channeland begin the conversation around migrating to B2B on Shopify.

Updates to checkout extensibility
We’ve added new DatePickerand Disclosure checkout UI components. DatePicker will help you build customizations to select specific delivery dates, while the Disclosure component will help with UX patterns that progressively disclose information, like the long list of line items in a bundle.
Additionally, checkout branding now supports custom fonts. Checkout, accounts, and UIextensions inherit these fonts making experiences consistent across surfaces.
Together these capabilities will help merchants upgrade to checkout extensibility.
Build apps powered by Shopify Functions
Checkout validation and product bundle apps powered by Functionswill soon be generally available to merchants, which means now’s the time to start building these tools if you want to capitalize on the new opportunities presented by Functions.
Get started building an app that ensures purchases meet a specific criteria before completing a checkout, or an app that groups products together as a bundle. Or, learn more about Shopify Functions below.
Changes to support requests for app charge refunds
As of May 3, 2023, merchants will be required to contact partners directly if they want to request a refund for an app. Shopify Support will no longer reach out to partners on behalf of the merchant to facilitate their request.
This change will streamline the refund process, as refunds are at the partners’ discretion and partners have the ability to issue most refunds themselves. The exception is still reversals to pending charges. In these cases, we highly encourage partners to issue application credits, which Shopify Supportcan then apply to the invoice.
Please contact Partner Supportwith any questions about this change.
Deep linking for theme app blocks now available
We’re making it easier for merchants to install apps in context. App developers can now generate a deep link that takes merchants to the theme editor, where a desired app block will be added automatically for the merchant to preview and adjust prior to saving.
Deep linking simplifies your app’s installation flow, because merchants won’t need to navigate to the theme editor, find the block, and then act on it. Instead, your app does the work for them. Because merchants can preview the block, you’re providing them with control over what they include in their storefront.
Partner email verification
To keep the Shopify App Storesafe and secure and to better serve our partner community, we will begin enforcing partner email verification.
Your contact information allows us to share important information and updates related to your business. It also enables us to make sure that every account is created by a real person with real contact details, which helps us keep the app store safe for all users.
Account owners, please use the banner in the partner dashboard to verify your email as soon as possible to avoid restrictions to your dashboard access.

Shopify App Store credit for merchants
This month, we are running a promotion in which we give merchants credit to the Shopify App Store to show them the power of apps and how using them can help their business thrive.
You may see new traffic and installs as a result of this promotion. Ensure your app is eligible for future promotions by integrating the Shopify Billing API.
Learn about the Shopify Billing API
Update to Google Analytics 4 before July 2023
Visit our documentation for next steps to migrate your app listing tracking from Universal Analyticsto the new Google Analytics
4or to set up tracking for the first time.
Idempotentcreation of AppUsageRecords
In the Admin GraphQL APIversion 2023-04 , appUsageRecordCreate now supports an optional parameter idempotencyKey which ensures the merchant will not be charged twice for the same intent. When idempotencyKey is provided, the mutation will return the same response as any previous appUsageRecordCreate mutations with identical idempotencyKey for the intended shop and requesting app, rather than creating a new record and charging the merchant again.
Learn more about this update in the docs.
Creating app charges using the merchant’s billing currency
In the Admin GraphQL APIversion 2023-04 , the Billing API will now allow developers to create app charges using currencies that match the merchant’s local billing currency.
Previously, app charges could only be created using USD and were converted to the merchant’s local currency using the exchange rate at the time the invoice was issued. By creating app charges in the merchant’s billing currency, app developers can provide merchants with better price predictability and set pricing that is proportional to the purchasing power of their local billing currency.

Use the Mock Shop API and AI-powered text-to-GraphQL generator to query live commerce data such as sample products, variants, and carts to help you quickly prototype commerce storefronts.
Mock.Shop is publicly available—no server or access tokens required.
Increasing search relevance with behavioral data
The search algorithms we use on the Shopify App Storenow incorporate more data on how merchants engage with results after they search. In other words, apps that merchants find most relevant, given what they’re searching for, will rank higher overall.
We’re always optimizing our automated systems to show the most useful results possible.While term matching will still inform results, this update will reduce the impact of keyword stuffing.
All-new B2B features and partner resources
Since we launched B2B on Shopify in June 2022, we’ve released dozens of new B2B features and enhancements, including: customer-specific product publishing, quantity rules, checkout to draft, easy reordering, credit card vaulting, and new B2B APIs. Learn more with our updated B2B partner enablement resources, including the new B2B on Shopify Partner Guide , at the link below.

Introducing: Commerce Components by Shopify
Shopifyhas spent nearly two decades building the components that form the world’s most powerful commerce platform. Now, we’re opening those components to the biggest retailers in the world with a new offering: Commerce Components by Shopify.
Commerce Componentsis a modern, composable stack that lets retailers choose the modular components they want, integrate them with their existing services, and create incredible customer experiences built for conversion. It’s designed for the unique requirements of enterprise retailers generating over $500 million USD in annual revenue.
This is an exciting evolution in Shopify’s journey to make commerce better for everyone.
A suite of B2B APIs is now available in stable
Build custom wholesale solutions to help Plus merchants easily scale and grow their DTCand B2B stores from one platform. It is important to ensure your current B2B apps are up to date with these new APIs.
This release includes metafields for Company and Company Location so you can create custom data fields such as order quantity requirements. It also includes Checkout UIextensions based on B2B buyer identity, allowing you to build performant and upgrade-safe apps for B2B checkout experiences—such as hiding, reordering, or offering custom shipping and payment options using the Delivery and Payment Functions . It also supports importing non-Shopify B2B orders via REST API , automatic payment reminder emails to companies, and setting ‘due on fulfillment’ as a payment term.
To learn more about building B2B apps, visit our developer docs.

Deliveryand payment customizations are now available in Developer Preview
The Functions APIs for delivery customizations and payment customizations are now available in a developer preview. With these new APIs you can hide, reorder, or rename delivery and payment options to help merchants increase conversions and stand out from the competition.
To learn more about building with delivery and payment Functions, visit our developer docs.
Test webhook topics and streamline webhook failure emails
You’ll now be able to trigger a webhook test payload to a specified destination directly from the CLI. Previously, developers needed to create a dev store and manually click around with an app installed in order to test their app logic. This new feature allows you to more easily test subscriptions for each topic, so you can see what the payload will look like before your app is in production.
We’re also reducing the number of emails sent each time a webhook delivery fails. Previously, there was one email sent per attempt, which could quickly add up and become ineffective for monitoring. Now, only one email will be sent for each one-per-consecutive string of failed attempts, over a two-day period, in order to keep your inbox clean and actionable.
If you have any questions about these changes, contact Partner Supportor check out the dev docs below.
