Changes to credit and debit card fields in checkout
In order to provide greater clarity and ease of use to your customers during checkout, Shopify's checkout team has made some changes to the credit card and debit card input fields!
- Cardholder name is becoming Name on card
- CVV is becoming Security code
- MM / YY is becoming Expiry date (MM / YY)
For a more consistent customer experience, the name of input fields related to expiry and issue dates of cards are now standardized to Expiry Date (MM/YY) and Issue Date (MM/YY).
If you use one of your theme’s supported languages, then you don't need to do anything. We'll update the translation automatically.
If you use custom translations for these fields, then we’ll update your existing translations so that they match the new standardization.
If you need to change your custom translation as a result of this, then you can do so from your Shopify admin. Learn more about creating custom translations for your theme and translating your checkout from the Shopify Help Center.
