Creating and publishing your new Shopify Checkout: A step-by-step guide for Shopify Plus merchants

Your Shopify store's checkout process is a crucial element of the customer experience. With the introduction of Checkout Extensibility, Shopify has provided powerful tools to customize and brand your checkout to perfection. In this guide, I'll walk you through the process of creating and publishing your new Shopify Checkout.

Step 1: Access your Shopify admin

Start by logging into your Shopify admin panel. This is where you'll initiate the process of creating your new checkout experience.

Step 2: Navigate to checkout settings

Once you're in your admin panel, find and click on Settings. From there, navigate to the Checkout section. This is the place where you'll find the options to customize your checkout process.

Step 3: Create a draft checkout

Within the Checkout section, locate the list of your previously prepared checkouts and by clicking ‘Duplicate’ create a new draft checkout. Creating a draft checkout allows you to make changes and experiment without affecting your live site. It's a safe space for customization.

Step 4: Customize your checkout

This is where the magic happens. In the draft checkout, you can add apps and tweak your branding to align with your unique business identity. You have the freedom to make your checkout experience truly yours.

Step 5: Optional - set up Pixels and Functions

Depending on your needs and goals, you can set up Web Pixels or additional Functions to enhance your checkout experience. This step is optional, but can add valuable functionality to your checkout.

Step 6: Review your changes

Before taking your new checkout live, carefully review the changes you've made. Ensure that everything looks and functions as you intended it to.

Step 7: Publish your new checkout

Once you're satisfied with your customizations, and you're confident in the changes you've made, it's time to share your new checkout with the world. Click Publish to make your enhanced checkout experience live.

Step 8: Confirm the change

A pop-up window will appear, confirming that you want to replace your live checkout.liquid customizations with your new setup. Click Publish to confirm this change.

One of the benefits of using Checkout Extensibility is that Shopify regularly introduces new improvements and features. The great news is that your new checkout will automatically receive these updates, ensuring your checkout process remains cutting-edge.

Et, voilà! You've successfully created and published your new Shopify Checkout.
