Shopify Pursuit 2020: News & Insights

At Shopify Pursuit last week, developers and partners gathered to discuss the conference theme – Turning Ideas Into Action. In that spirit, our resident Shopify Plus expert, Leigh Barnes, shares his conference insights below so you can turn them into actions!

Shopify Pay Is Now Called Shop Pay

In his keynote address, Shopify CTO Jean-Michel Lemieux flagged that Shopify Pay is now called Shop Pay. He also highlighted that the biggest Shopify merchants are delivering an impressive 40,000 orders or more per minute. For more information, read our recent blog post covering the Shop Pay name change.

Sections Everywhere

In May last year, Shopify announced plans to entirely rebuild the Shopify online store experience. This is currently in beta for developers but Jean-Michel Lemieux alluded to the new store experience being ready by Shopify Unite in May 2020. Learn more about the new store design, which includes sections on every page type, on our blog here.

Headless eCommerce Possibilities

Unsurprisingly, the trend for headless ecommerce continues with one speaker explaining that “when building a headless Shopify platform, the possibilities are endless.”

Page building platform, Shogun, announced that they’re entering the headless space. Their new product, Shogun Frontend, allows brands to create a customised online storefront while using (for example) Shopify Plus as their back end.

For more information on headless commerce, and whether it’s right for you, read our guide.
