6/18/21 Feature & Maintenance Release

Feature Release

Address Verification: The address verification feature suggests corrections to or verifies a customer’s address once the full address has been entered. Enabling address verification for your online store results in less friction at checkout, leading to:

  • Faster shipping times
  • Reduced shipping errors that require manual resolutions
  • Increased chance of return customers

Address verification can be turned on within the admin dashboard of your site. To learn more about using address verification, check out our Help Center article.

To test address verification in your store, turn the feature on by navigating to the Checkout section of your admin dashboard (located within the “Settings” tab) and checking the box for “Enable Address Verification.” Then, complete the first page of your checkout process using the following address:

Jane Doe

Feature Release

UI/UX Overhaul: The checkout experience is one of the most important on your store, which is why we’ve dedicated our time to continually iterating on the user interface and user experience aspects of Premium Checkout. Here are a few of the most exciting UI/UX enhancements included in this release:

One Click Checkout

  • Shoppers who are logged into an account with your store will be taken to a checkout page prefilled with their previous order information.
  • If the shopper has no edits, the only action they need to take to complete the purchase is to click the "Pay" button.

Shipping Experience

  • When selecting the shipping method, the "Continue" button is disabled until no errors are present.
  • If no shipping method is selected, the system will default to the least expensive shipping method.
  • Cart and shipping methods are only updated when the shopper changes their address to something that affects the shipping method.

Guest Login Experience

  • When an email address is entered, a message will notify the shopper if an existing account is detected.
  • When a login is attempted, a message will notify the shopper if there is no account associated with the email they used.
  • When too many login attempts have been used, a message will notify the shopper that they are running out of attempts before locking them out.
  • When password help is requested, a message will notify the shopper of success.

Updated Functionality

  • New name: "Premium Checkout"
  • Updated security language at the bottom of checkout

Bugs Addressed

  • Overall error reduction in checkout
  • Transaction data is more accurate for all ad platforms (Google Analytics, Google Ads, Facebook Ads, etc)
  • All currently-known PayPal-related bugs have been corrected
