Shopify News Round Up May 2023
This month, Shopify brings forth a plethora of captivating features, showcasing an impressive range of new functionalities. Moreover, it’s essential to be aware of an upcoming price increase for existing Shopify customers during this period.
Here are some key items you should know:
Shopify Help & Support
Shopify has made significant improvements to their online support. They have introduced a ticketing system that allows you to conveniently access and review all your previous support tickets. This feature provides you with a timeframe for replies and enables you to add additional people to a ticket for enhanced collaboration.

Changes to Asset URLs
In the following weeks, Shopify will begin serving your website’s assets from your store domain instead of the Shopify Content Delivery Network (CDN). This change offers significant benefits in terms of search engine optimisation (SEO).
Here’s an example showcasing the URL change:
Old URL: https://cdn.shopify.com/files/produyct-shot-45.png
New URL: https://yourdomain.com/files/produyct-shot-45.png
Search & Discover
Shopify has implemented further enhancements to the Search & Discover feature. You can now update the filter name, providing you with greater control over the title related to a meta-field. We will publish a thorough blog post with a video to provide a more thorough understanding of this feature. This will delve into an in-depth exploration of the functionality.
These updates and improvements on Shopify aim to enhance your overall experience and empower you to make the most of the platform’s capabilities.
