Redeem at checkout rewards

As of Aug-2024 Shopify plan to fully deprecate checkout.liquid, which some merchant use to customise their checkout experiences. Checkout extensibility isn't compatible with checkout.liquid. You can use checkout extensibility to replace your checkout.liquid customizations with new or upcoming features.

For more information on this, we suggest contacting your Shopify Account Manager. And you can read more about checkout.liquid here.

❗ Please note: If you currently use checkout.liquid - there will be no immediate change to the functionality of your program. If there are any doubts, please contact your account manager or customer service manager.

Who can upgrade to Checkout Extensibility?

Why upgrade to Checkout Extensiblty?

As the service matures, there will be more enhancements in the forms of customisations, editors, pixels and branding.
