What is Shopify dynamic checkout?

Consistently Shopify declares it's lead refreshes in its yearly meeting called Unite. This year also it has announced the bunch of exciting updates, for example, Multilingual dashboard and the Buy one get one coupon code feature, among all Dynamic checkout is a specious thing. Basically, Dynamic checkout is a kind of one-step checkout from product page that doesn’t only skips the cart page but also gives a personalised experience to the visitors by offering them their preferred payment method as the first choice.

How does Dynamic checkout work?

When Admin or Store owner enabled dynamic checkout on the store, there will be additional checkout buttons along with the default Add to cart button on the product pages.

Here there might be two cases which are...

(1). Branded payment button:

If Shopify can detect the preferred payment method of the user or store visitor let suppose from the browser or device that customer is using now, then a branded button for that same payment method will be shown on its product page. So remember you have that payment method active in the payment settings in your store.

Recent, Shopify is supporting below accelerated checkout methods.

1. Amazon Pay
2. Apple Pay and
3. PayPal

Let see an example below:

Here the detected preferred payment method is Apple Pay and thus the “Buy with Apple Pay” button appeared.

However, other payment options available in ‘More payments options’ link below the branded payment button. If a customer clicks on that link, then a window that shows all of the available payment options appears. The visitor will also get the option to apply a coupon or a gift card here.

 (2). Generic Buy Now button:

Well, here its a different story then previous, if Shopify is unable to find out any preferred payment of the visitor, then the unbranded ‘Buy Now’ button (By default) will display on the product page. Once the visitor clicks the button visitor will get all the supported options for the payment methods as well as a discount coupon or gift card.

Some important things to be mind for dynamic checkout implementation: 

1. Shopify's New gift of dynamic checkout buttons might not be able to work in case you are using apps which works with the cart, currency converters or apps which take users out of the Shopify checkout.

2. Let suppose you are using different cart attributes for example Gift wrapping, terms and conditions checkbox, delivery date pickers, etc. then the dynamic checkout buttons will not support those.
