How to customize the new checkout extensibility

A Step-by step guide

To add additional features to the checkout page in Shopify, you need to specify where those features should appear. This is done by defining specific areas in the theme checkout editor.

Here's how to do so:

1. On the store's Shopify account, navigate to the Checkout section.

6. Now you can see the new block that has been added in the checkout editor, along with its current location.
Each block that has been added is seen on the Shopify checkout editor as a new grey block named Dynamic Visual Component.

To add more blocks to the checkout, repeat steps 3-6.

  •  For multi-step checkout - currently we support adding blocks and customizing only the information page. The option of editing additional checkout pages will be added to our robust features in the near future.
  • Each change is targeting a specific device.  The device can be changed by switching the Quick Preview device on the top left side of the screen using the device icon and creating the desired change on the relevant device.
