Shopify Partner Town Hall is a holy grail for Shopify agencies or partners. And it is no secret why? At HulkApps, we keep our eyes hooked to the latest releases on the Shopify platform, technology innovation, and engineering. So, we can educate ourselves, keep ourselves updated with all the latest changes to the platform and help our merchants overcome issues - no matter big or small- in a flexible way. 

Lately, Shopify Partner Town Hall product or platform updates have been quite phenomenal as we believe they are powerful to transform merchant experience and help them thrive. Especially in the times of COVID-19 as businesses move from brick-and-mortar space to the online marketplace, these updates can be dynamic to enable flexible, fast, and user-friendly functionalities in your stores. 

Here’s how we, as a HulkApps Shopify agency, can make use of these updates and power up your store. 

New pricing tools for international buyers 

What makes for the most essential aspect of selling to international buyers? Your customers need to know what could be the rate of taxes, shipping costs, and product prices in their own currencies based on the product’s various options, country, or region in real-time. 

If a lot of calculations your customers do, chances are they move to and fro between your store and apps, which makes the user experience even nastier. Conversion can take a sharp hit. 

To make it easy, enable your international customers to pay in their local currencies in line with automatic conversion using a foreign exchange (FX) rate. In addition to selling globally, the Infinite Product Options App is a vital tool to make the customer experience more engaged and loyal. By integrating this app with your store, you can enable your global customers to-

  • add any number of items or bulk orders they want
  • choose specific color or design
  • view accurate amount in checkout

When Infinite product options by HulkApps align with the automatic international pricing, it gives you more control over pricing functionality. 

Note: 

  • Your Shopify store must utilize Shopify Payments.
  • The exact amount on checkout depends on international shipping locations.
  • To localize customer experience, you can use the international domain.
  • Geolocation is mandatory to enable your shoppers to view pricing in their local currency value.
  • Forget not to disable Buy Now if you use Google Pay or Apple Pay.
  • Allow your customers to view details in their native language to build engaged UX. 

TIP: If you need any support in achieving this goal, HulkApps Shopify partners can make it easier for you.  


Build omnichannel experience with pickup availability

Merchants those faced business closures due to COVID-19 opted to move to online stores. Being one of the leading Shopify partners, HulkApps helped merchants with online store development and scaling.  

Here one thing to take note of. Fewer in-person sales at their stores resulted in excessive rents and maintenance costs too. We enabled Shopify Point of Sale so that fulfillment becomes easy through in-store pickup and brings in more customers than to worry about in-person sales. 

Now, our work seems even more effortless with the new pickup availability feature on out-of-the-box on the Shopify Default theme. We can offer a significant level of flexibility to merchants while helping users have their products at the earliest. Here’s how we can help merchants build this unique experience- 

  • We can embed the pickup availability feature in the default Shopify theme. 
  • If merchants want, it will be easier for us to customize Shopify themes to enable pickup availability on the product page and help customers know the nearest location for pickup without having to wait until the checkout page shows up information. 
  • To make this feature even more workable for customers, we can embed buyers’ IP address, city, or zip code to help sort location by kilometers and miles.  

Buying online and pickup in-store is much more convenient for customers and profitable for merchants- this is how omnichannel commerce is becoming easy to launch for merchants.
