Shopify adding checkout app extension for subscriptions
At the 2019 Unite conference, Shopify announced “checkout app extensions” — with the first one being for subscription payment processing:
- The new feature will no longer require users to exit the Shopify checkout to sign up for subscription products or services.
- The new feature won’t eliminate the need for subscription apps, but will allow app developers to integrate with the extension for smoother user experience, better security and more.
- Subscription checkout app extensions will be available later in 2019.
