The highly anticipated Shopify Editions Summer '23, themed, as we recently reported, "Imagine Your Business," is here with over 100 product updates designed to empower merchants with productivity, creativity, and enhanced commerce capabilities. As the leading e-commerce platform, Shopify continues to innovate, revolutionising the way businesses operate and reach their full potential.
Unleashing Imagination for Business Growth
"Imagine Your Business" is more than just a theme; it's a call to action for merchants to dream big and envision a future where possibilities are limitless. Shopify acknowledges that each business has unique aspirations, and this Edition aims to equip merchants with the tools to transform their visions into reality.
Do More with AI
With AI-powered features across the platform, Shopify enables merchants to streamline manual tasks and enhance productivity. Smart replies and instant answers in Shopify Inbox allow for faster customer interactions and email optimisation. This AI integration promises to save valuable time and resources, driving more efficient business operations.
Optimise Your Shop Store for Mobile Shoppers
As mobile commerce continues to thrive, Shopify's Summer '23 Edition focuses on enhancing the mobile shopping experience. By customising the Shop Store on the Shop app, merchants can reach millions of mobile shoppers with personalised native mobile stores, ultimately extending their brand's reach and customer base.
Uplifted Visual Design
Shopify takes aesthetics and functionality to new heights with a refreshed visual design and a single-column layout for the home page. The redesigned admin offers improved clarity, interactivity, and practicality, enabling merchants to concentrate on critical business aspects without distractions.
Customise Your Store with Flex Sections
Creating personalised online store layouts has never been easier, thanks to the introduction of flex sections. Shopify leverages CSS Flexbox to facilitate responsive and multi-directional layouts within store sections. Merchants can now effortlessly tailor their stores, enhancing brand identity and customer experience.
Offer Subscriptions with Shopify
The new, free Shopify Subscriptions app empowers merchants to set up and manage simple subscription offerings. Customers gain the flexibility to pause, skip, and update orders, increasing their loyalty. For more advanced subscription needs, Shopify offers purpose-built apps in the Shopify App Store.
