Shopify 2.0 is coming!

Shopify 2.0 is coming!

Have you heard? Shopify Online Store 2.0 has been released. This will have MAJOR impacts to your Shopify store.

What is Shopify Online Store 2.0?

One of the biggest complaints about Shopify has been the lack of functionality for non-commerce related content. The Pages function within Shopify has had limited functionality at best.

Online Store 2.0 revolutionizes Shopify by adding traditional CMS type content into the Theme Editor, enabling full customization AND modularization of content throughout your ecommerce site.

How does this impact my business?

Have you ever wanted to feature a blog post on a collection page? Or add story content about a product on a product page... and have it different for each product? Yeah - this is it. 

Build any type of content and make it modular throughout your site. All without requiring a developer. All from the Theme Editor. No need for slow apps.

Sounds awesome. How does it work?

Sometimes referred to as "Sections Anywhere," Shopify uses the sections you are familiar with in the home page area of the Theme Editor, and extends this to nearly all areas of your site. Add photos, text, videos, 3D renders, anything...

If you're on Shopify Plus, you can automate the publishing of these elements so you're not stay up till 12:01pm to publish that flash sale.

When can I use Online Store 2.0?

All the Theme developers around the world are currently (August) starting to upgrade their themes to support Online Store 2.0. Depending on what Theme you are using, your timetable will look different, however this may be a GREAT time to switch themes. Leading Theme developers will have their themes ready in late August and through the Fall of 2021.

Why should I switch themes?

If your theme is older than 1 year, its page speed load time is likely SUPER slow. Online Store 2.0 brings some major upgrades to the way themes load, so most theme that are releasing through Fall 2021 will see significant performance upgrades. Fast page speed is foundational to increasing conversion.
