First, Let’s Talk About Setting Strategic

That’s because we’re prioritizing speed more than ever, providing a fast foundation to increase the likelihood of merchant stores loading quickly. We knew that building with minimal JavaScript meant we wouldn’t compromise the user experience for merchants and shoppers. In some cases, JavaScript is required even if it’s not the most efficient option. But where it made sense, we relied on native browser functions instead of JavaScript libraries and polyfills. We encourage developers to take advantage of native browser functionality whenever possible to render HTML and CSS layouts. 6. Reopening of the Shopify Theme Store We’re excited to announce that in addition to the improvements to Online Store 2.0, we’ll also be reopening the Shopify Theme Store for partners on July 15, 2021.

On that day, you’ll be able to submit your new themes for review. and approved topics will start publishing. Even better, in September we’re removing all revenue sharing from the first million dollars you earn annually on the Shopify Theme Store. That means if you make less than $1 million, you’ll pay a zero percent revenue share, and those Christmas Island B2B List numbers reset every year. When you earn more than $1 million, you’ll only pay a 15 percent revenue share on incremental earnings. There will be a one-time shipping fee of $99 USD per account to ship to the Shopify theme store, plus a 2.9 percent processing fee on all transactions. We will have more information about this update soon.
