A few weeks ago we attended Shopify Unite 2021, where we were able to observe many changes in the so-called Online Store 2.0 . At doos we were already able to review some changes that have reached the development stores and very soon to your store.
Previously, you had to enter the main section to see all the content. Now, we can see everything in a drop-down list in each section. Likewise, the sections are organized in the form of branches, which makes navigation easier.
Also, it will be easier to add new sections, since a simple and understandable list of everything that can be done in it will be displayed. This is done with the idea of simplifying the use of Shopify in an easy way for users.
The most attractive change can be found within the products page. Now, it will allow you to add additional sections. For example, specific information about certain products, this will be done through metadata. These changes are long overdue as they give a better view to the pages.
Now we can add additional information on products, variants, orders or customers. This is done through a section called Metadata (Metafields in English) that allows you to add texts, code fragments or even files to complement the content of the store.
For now, only the option to add metadata to products and variants is enabled, we will be waiting to see when other options are enabled.
This is just a little of what is being updated on Shopify, more changes are coming to the platform very soon. Stay tuned to our blog for more upcoming updates.
