In summer 2021 Shopify announced their big update. Among other things for business owners, development tools also have been improved significantly which we’re already using.
Means that if a theme is built in a specific way, it provides opportunities to manage UI components that can be added, removed, and configured directly through the theme editor without having to touch a theme’s code. Images, texts, even entire sections can be modified within minutes therefore you don’t need a developer to put for example a hero banner for your Black Friday campaign or even create an event-specific page.
Better and faster product filtering
Product filtering is built natively in Shopify, so there is less loading time, which increases your site speed and decreases your bounce rate. Managing and using filters becomes much easier.
Business owners are always in control over changes made by developers and we are easily able to return back to the previous version in a minute. Version control is bidirectional, meaning if any changes have been made to a theme in the admin panel they’re automatically committed to the repo on Github.
New added multilingual capabilities
With the new Markets feature no need for external integrations or a headless setup, multilingual stores are built natively on Shopify including multiple languages, currencies, tax rates and subdomain separation.
