Shopify is a great option for online merchants looking to take advantage of the latest in ecommerce technology. But you also need to take advantage of all the features it offers if you want to get the maximum benefit. Fortunately, the Shopify platform is automatically updated (unlike other platforms such as WordPress or Magento), so Shopify customers will have access to new and updated features right when they come out. Some new and upcoming features include more sales channel integrations and a new chip and swipe reader. Also announced at UNITE 2017 was the ability to make in-game purchases and Shopify Pay, which takes mobile checkout down to two fields from the current 16.
A new Discounts API will allow merchants to create and manage discounts more easily, so you can set them up faster and help your customers save big when they shop with you. It’s a great way to keep them coming back. And don’t forget multi-location inventory, so you can keep track of the products you have on hand and who’s buying them.
You’ll also get a way to manage responsive images, so you can make the shopping experience even better and more interactive for the customer. That will bring more people to your site, and help them stay there longer, which could lead to increased sales over time. With automated marketing built right into the dashboard and multi-channel selling that works more easily than ever before, Shopify is providing new and better ways for you to reach out to your customers and sell them the things they need while providing them with an excellent online shopping experience.
