1. B2B/ Wholesale - Shopify Plus

Key takeaways:

  • Shopify's commitment to enhancing B2B and Wholesale capabilities is more evident than ever with a series of updates spanning Operations, Payments, and Marketing. 
  • These updates aren't just minor tweaks; they represent a significant shift in focus. 
  • The introduction of the B2B Store Editor signals Shopify's acknowledgment of the distinct requirements of the B2B market. Moreover, it suggests the likelihood of even more dedicated B2B-specific tools in the pipeline.
  • _____

    In the beginning, Shopify started out as a platform that provides B2C/ D2C solutions for retailers worldwide. However, along with the development of eCommerce in recent years, Shopify is paying more attention to the B2B sector.

    In this Summer Edition, Shopify has announced 12 updates related to B2B/ Wholesale - most of which are only available to Shopify Plus users. Some were first introduced in the Shopify Editions Summer 2022, such as Wholesale Pricing and Paypal Payment. Since then, Shopify has put effort into perfecting the updates and now they’re ready for B2B businesses to apply these innovations.

    1.1. Online Store Editor: Tailor store for B2B audiences

    Shopify now allows you to adapt online store design with context-specific pages for wholesale customers.

    As a store owner, if you have more than one B2B feature on Shopify store activated, you can modify sections and blocks specific to the context of the B2B market. Then, by log in to a B2B customer profile, your shoppers could access B2B stores without needing to sign in to a separate storefront.

    1.2. B2B-specific tools

    Besides the update on the store-front editor, Shopify has introduced multiple features to serve B2B merchants the best:

    Wholesale migration tool: Migration among stores and platforms is always an exhausting task. Having understood this pain point, Shopify has made the migration process easy, in which you can transfer product catalogs, customer lists, historical orders, etc. without touching any code.

    Volume pricing: The main difference between B2B and B2C selling is in one word: volume. B2B often requires a much higher volume than B2C selling. Therefore, Shopify has added this feature to help merchants define quantity rules and price breaks to encourage wholesale customers to buy in larger quantities at reasonable prices.

    Quick order lists: This is another convenient update that creates an all-in-one section on your product page. In which, business customers can view a list of product variants to easily choose and change sizes, colors, materials, etc. for a quicker shopping experience.

    1.3. Product curation

    Product curation is the process in which you will source, edit, and merchandise products from brands to customers directly.

    Shopify encourages product curation by helping merchants curate top products, automating payments, and syncing inventory and orders. After this Shopify edition, you can sell products from top brands that complement your brand without managing inventory or shipping.

    You just need to add products to your stores and push them to your shoppers, the rest is taken care of by Shopify’s system.

    1.4. More updates in payment and operations

    Besides those significant B2B/Wholesale updates above, many other features are expected to help both B2B merchants and customers to buy and sell easier such as PayPal payments on B2B, PO number, automation with Shopify Flow, etc.


    How do they affect you?

    • As a merchant: These updates translate into newfound potential for growth, especially if you operate in the B2B sphere. These updates provide brands with access to a set of specialized tools and resources, separate from those typically geared towards B2C or D2C enterprises. This empowerment allows you to expand your business, streamline your operations, and offer tailored experiences that cater precisely to the unique demands of the B2B landscape.
    • As a partner: Partners within the Shopify ecosystem are on the brink of exciting opportunities. These updates open the door to crafting bespoke B2B and Wholesale solutions, a niche that is gaining increasing prominence. By diversifying your service offerings, developing custom integrations, and positioning yourself as an expert in this specialized field, you can attract clients seeking your expertise in a rapidly evolving market segment.

    2. Global commerce

    Key takeaways: Shopify is poised to elevate its premium offering, Markets Pro, to a new level of excellence. Markets Pro, renowned for its inclusion of Shop Pay and a comprehensive array of shipping options, is set to undergo significant enhancements. These enhancements underscore the pivotal role of payment and fulfillment services in Shopify's offerings for premium global brands. This strategic alignment with recent developments is just the beginning of Shopify's commitment to these critical channels. The company has a clear vision of expanding and refining these aspects in the future.


    According to Shopify, the global eCommerce market is expected to total $6.3 trillion in 2023 and account for 21.2% of total retail sales. 

    Shopify has recognized the importance of global commerce, and in Shopify Edition Summer ‘23, they introduced 2 major breakthroughs:

    2.1. Shopify Markets Pro: Add Shop Pay and shipping options

    Payment and fulfillment are key challenges for international transactions. They hinder the drives and development of global commerce for both sellers and buyers. 

    Markets Pro simplifies the checkout experience with more information, but fewer steps needed, and also provides more payment options (including Shop Pay) that suit the needs of shoppers worldwide.

    Moreover, Markets Pro is integrated with built-in shipping solutions so you can manage your inventory and shipping status without using external apps. By this way, merchants can eliminate most of the store challenges for global outreach.

    Shopify Markets Pro is currently available to merchants worldwide on Basic, Shopify, Advanced, and Shopify Plus. You can explore more about it here.

    2.2. Online Store Editor: Tailor store for international audiences

    Similar to the B2B-specialized store updates mentioned above, from this Summer Edition, Shopify also allows merchants to customize their stores to adapt to countries as an attempt to further localization settings.

    In detail, you can build a store that displays differently for each shopper based on their choice or location IP.

    In a world where consumers are willing to pay 77% more for personalized experiences, tailored store design is expected to drive conversion and sales on a global level.


    How do they affect you?

    • As a merchant: For brands contemplating global expansion, a closer collaboration with Shopify becomes an increasingly appealing proposition. These forthcoming enhancements signal Shopify's dedication to providing robust payment and shipping solutions, which are paramount in the international business landscape. Brands aspiring to reach global markets should carefully evaluate the potential advantages ofShopify's sophisticated payment and shipping options in optimizing their market penetration strategies.
    • As a partner: Within the Shopify ecosystem, partners stand to benefit significantly from these developments. The heightened focus on payment and shipping solutions by Shopify creates a fertile ground for partners to devise specialized, region-specific solutions that seamlessly complement Shopify's strategic direction. Crafting custom solutions that integrate with Shopify's platform enables partners to offer added value to clients pursuing global expansion with an emphasis on payment and fulfillment excellence. This presents an opportunity for partners to carve a niche for themselves and lead the charge in the ongoing evolution of payment and fulfillment services. 

    3. Multi-channel commerce

    Key takeaways: Shopify's Point of Sale (POS) system is gearing up for a substantial overhaul, marking a significant stride in Shopify's concerted efforts to extend its reach into the realm of offline commerce. This move is a testament to Shopify's unwavering commitment to offering comprehensive support to merchants and brands across both digital and physical sales channels. Furthermore, Shopify is bolstering its connected channels, reinforcing its commitment to helping brands attract a broader customer base.


    Multi-channel commerce is projected to account for 45.6% of global eCommerce retail sales in 2023. It is undeniable that shoppers want more channels to explore and consider products. Therefore, merchants must also establish their existence in multi-channels to reach and encourage shoppers to purchase.

    As a result, Shopify must integrate with more eCommerce floors and launch more features to adapt to this market demand. They’ve proven it through 6+ updates in this edition, in which there are 3 major updates 

    3.1. Shopify POS

    This is one of the largest solutions that Shopify has launched in recent years. Shopify gives in-store customers more ways to pay with POS Go, WisePad, and Shop Pay Installments,  which are increasingly used worldwide.

    Furthermore, Shopify POS empowers store owners to manage inventory, in-store staff, and payment flow easier than ever before.

    By launching POS solutions, Shopify has shown its ambition of not only providing virtual commerce solutions but also powering physical commerce transactions.

    3.2. TikTok Shop: Sell on TikTok

    Do you know that 68% of US adult Gen-Zers prefer shopping online through TikTok Shop rather than other eCommerce floors? TikTok Shop is definitely a huge wave for eCommerce lovers to dive into and grow further.

    Shopify doesn’t want to miss this growth wave. They’ve integrated with TikTok successfully. Shopify stores can now connect with TikTok Shop to manage and fulfill orders directly and automatically.

    3.3. Local pickup: available in draft orders

    Online draft orders on Shopify stores can now be fulfilled through physical stores.

    If store owners turn on the option of “Local pickup” regardless of how the order was placed, shoppers can go directly to the retail store to pick up the product by themselves. It’s a great way to provide flexibility to shoppers, save delivery costs, and attract more traffic to the physical store.

    3.4. More integration updates

    In the realm of multi-channel commerce, Shopify now allows stores to connect with major marketplaces, such as Amazon, Walmart, and eBay, using a feature called Shopify Marketplace Connect. More than that, they optimize the Shop App and product images with the application of AI to attract more customers and convert them better.

    How do they affect you?

    • As a merchant: These POS updates present an opportunity to fortify their connection with Shopify. It's not just about online sales anymore; Shopify's POS enhancements enable merchants to streamline their operations further. The holistic business workflow is greatly improved, ensuring a seamless transition between online and offline sales channels. Additionally, expanding connected channels provides merchants with a broader spectrum of shopping touchpoints. This means you have more opportunities to optimize your strategies and reach a wider audience of shoppers, wherever they choose to engage with your brand.
    • As a partner: The evolution of Shopify POS holds the promise of exciting possibilities. It opens doors for Partners to develop POS-related solutions or delve into the broader domain of offline commerce for Shopify brands. This expansion aligns with the growing demand for seamless integration between digital and physical sales channels, allowing Partners to create innovative solutions that cater to this need. However, the proliferation of connected channels presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities for Partners. On one hand, it opens avenues for developing specialized integrations and tools. On the other hand, it requires Partners to navigate the complexities of an increasingly diverse and interconnected retail landscape. Adapting to these changes and staying ahead of the curve will be crucial for Partners looking to leverage the full potential of Shopify's expanded ecosystem.

    4. Customer acquisition & engagement

    Key takeaways: Shopify is making big improvements for its marketing tools, focusing on getting more customers and keeping them engaged. They're making it easier to target specific groups of customers, speeding up how quickly marketing campaigns happen, and giving you more ways to connect with your customers. Plus, Shopify is supercharging partnership marketing through upgrades to Shopify Collabs.


    The eCommerce landscape is getting more fierce, with  customer acquisition cost increased by 60% in the last 5 years. Therefore, it’s necessary to optimize online store and marketing efforts for better customer acquisition and engagement.

    Shopify has launched many features that support merchants in reaching and engaging with customers. In this edition, they focus on 2 things: Shopify marketing tools and Shopify Collabs, along with 4 other updates.

    4.1. Shopify marketing tools: Email, chat, forms, segmentation, and automation tools

    Previously, Shopify merchants needed to rely on diverse Shopify apps to execute their marketing efforts. However, from this Shopify edition, merchants can quickly leverage marketing activities through 3 made-by-Shopify apps, including Shopify Email, Shopify Forms, Shopify Inbox, and 2 built-in functions: Segmentation and Automation.

    4.2. Shopify Collabs: lets creators sell products

    As influencer marketing is one of the most effective forms of marketing, with 50.7% of eCommerce businesses using it to leverage their reach to relevant audiences, Shopify knows that they can leverage the power of influencer marketing, then they’ve introduced Shopify Collabs - where merchants and influencers can collaborate together to drive sales.

    With Shopify Collabs, merchants can directly invite verified influencers and set a commission rate to encourage them to market their products to their followers.

    The best thing is, everything is powered by Shopify. You have little manual work to execute. In fact, you just need to find and choose suitable influencers. The rest, including verifying sales and payments, will be automatically finished by the Shopify system.

    How do they affect you?

With the upgraded Shopify Collabs, you can team up with other businesses or influencers to market your products together. It's a win-win for everyone, and it can boost your sales results.

    5. Conversion

    Key takeaways: Shopify is making substantial updates, with more than 50% of these tailored exclusively for Shopify Plus users. The primary focus of these updates centers on enhancing the checkout experience. This underscores Shopify's recognition of the checkout page as the pivotal point for driving conversions, leading to a concerted effort to fortify this critical aspect of eCommerce.


    After customer acquisition and engagement, conversion is the next thing that we will focus on.

    In this Summer Edition, Shopify has brought out 10 conversion-boosting features. In which, there are 3 main points that we can go into.

    5.1. Shopify apps

    Regarding Customer acquisition and engagement, Shopify has developed free marketing tools, particularly apps and built-in functions. But this is not everything.

    Some other significant apps are Shop Cash, Shopify Bundles, Shopify Search & Discovery.

    Learn more about those apps here.

    How do they affect you?

    • As a merchant: These apps are expected to give the power to the hands of merchants to reach higher conversion rates. 
    • As a partner: However, they create challenges for partners due to being competitors to many existing apps in the Shopify App Store.

    5.2. Customization features

    Shopify empowers their users by increasing the level of solution flexibility for both merchants and partners.

    They are now allowing the checkout page to be customized with add-ons, such as: pre-order offers, address validation, customized delivery method, custom branding and design for checkout page, and more.

    This empowerment opens doors for Shopify partners and improves the shopping experience, which is all good news to Shopify merchants.

    However, it is noticeable that most of the updates are only applicable to Shopify Plus users. This fact demonstrates that Shopify prioritizes their premium users and encourages other types of users to upgrade to the Shopify Plus plan.


    How do they affect you?

    • As a merchant: For Shopify Plus store owners, these updates come as a much-anticipated and welcome development. They address specific needs and offer improvements that cater to the demands of advanced eCommerce operations. However, for those on different Shopify plans, this serves as a compelling incentive to consider and strategize for potential changes that can be implemented in their own stores. It's worth noting that achieving the same level of customization and optimization may require a significant investment.
    • As a partner: These developments present a golden opportunity. If you're working with Shopify Plus brands, it's time to enhance and extend your existing solutions to align with these updates. Your expertise can help Shopify Plus brands take full advantage of these tailored enhancements. Simultaneously, for non-Shopify Plus businesses, this creates a demand for solutions that bridge the gap and offer similar optimization opportunities. Partners can step in to create suitable solutions that cater to the broader Shopify ecosystem. It's an invitation to innovate, offering solutions that streamline and enhance the checkout experience for all businesses.

    6. Inventory, fulfillment, and delivery
