Meet CCPA standards to improve trust with your California buyers

  • derive 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling California residents’ personal information

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), California buyers need to be given the choice to opt out of the sale of their personal information. The Customer Privacy app allows you to easily communicate how you track the sale of information, allowing buyers to choose if they want to share information.

New views for fulfillment details and shipping labels

Merchants now have an improved bulk shipping label purchase flow.

Until now, the bulk shipping label purchase flow in Shopify has been a copy of the single label purchase flow, but with orders stacked vertically on one page. This layout made it more difficult to keep track of your progress and position on the page.

Now, the purchase flow uses an order navigation menu. This navigation makes it easier to find specific orders, for example when merchants need to change a package size, weight, or shipping service. The navigation also helps with seeing progress and identifying orders with errors or warnings. Further, order notes are now displayed in the shipping label flow.
