Upgrade To Checkout Extensibility

For Shopify Plus merchants, one of the most critical updates from Shopify to be aware of currently is the Checkout.liquid deprecation. According to Shopify's official announcement, they will replace Checkout.liquid entirely with Checkout Extensibility during 2024. Therefore, merchants still using Checkout.liquid should prepare for the upgrade to Checkout Extensibility to ensure their checkout page functions smoothly and maintains optimal performance. 

Understanding Checkout Extensibility, reviewing the current Checkout.liquid, and finding suitable alternative solutions may pose challenges and time constraints. Recognizing this, the Qikify Team is launching a free expert consulting service to assist Shopify Plus merchants in transitioning to Checkout Extensibility. 

If you're seeking a convenient and effective way to upgrade your checkout page seamlessly, continue reading for details about our offer.

How is the process when merchants upgrade to Checkout Extensibility by themselves?

Here is the standard process when Shopify Plus merchants upgrade to Checkout Extensibility from Checkout.liquid by themselves. 

1. Understand the Checkout Extensibility

Merchants cannot upgrade to Checkout Extensibility without first gaining insights into its functionalities. This feature stands out as one of the vital and exclusive benefits tailored by Shopify for Shopify Plus merchants. Given the substantial effort invested in its development and continuous upgrades, there's a wealth of information to grasp about Checkout Extensibility.

2. Review the current Checkout.liquid

In this step, merchants must meticulously review their current Checkout.liquid to ensure not overlooking any customizations or page settings. Since this task involves coding expertise, developers should be entrusted with the responsibility. If merchants initially engaged freelancers or agencies for the Checkout.liquid update, this step may incur additional costs.

3. Defining the Project Scope and exploring alternative solutions

The complexity of the current checkout and expected requirements for the upgraded page using Checkout Extensibility determine the project scope. The more intricate the existing checkout or anticipated enhancements, the larger the scope of the project.

Additionally, researching the best alternative solutions for Checkout Extensibility can be time-consuming, especially if merchants aim to find options with similar functions within a reasonable budget.

4. Build and test your new checkout page

5. Deploy and optimize your new checkout page
