We’ve got as many as three pieces of exciting news for you and your Shop! Customers can now freely choose languages and currencies. It won’t stop there: you can also link up your social media channels and improve your marketing measures with extended tracking options in just a few clicks. Check it out now!
One click away from all languages and currencies
Let’s say you’ve set up your Shop for the US and chosen the US dollar as your currency. Customers from Australia might get confused with the currency, and maybe you even have some fans in Canada that prefer to shop in French. This can now be remedied with a few clicks.
Go to your Shop Area and click through Shops > Shop name & Info > Name, description & language and then Activate all languages so that customers can choose a country in your Shop’s footer and pay in their currency.
These countries and their respective currencies are supported:
North America and Australia
|USA||Canada (English and French)|
|Switzerland (German, French, Italian)||Spain|
|Belgium (French and Dutch)||Sweden|
Social media icons in your Shop
This feature has long been requested! Use social media icons to link up your Shop to your social media channels of choice. Social media icons will be visible in the header and footer area (on mobile devices only in the footer).
In your Shop settings, enter the ”Header & Colors“ section and then click on ”Social Media Icons“. Here you can choose if and how many icons you’d like to offer, how many symbols you want to show as well as which profile on the respective site should be linked up with. Just enter your user name (not the URL), and then click on “Apply changes“ to add the pretty icons to your Shop’s profile.
To help analyze customer behavior, we combined the options for tracking customers, both in your Shop and the checkout. These can be accessed with Advanced Settings > Web Analytics now.
You can also activate Facebook Tracking with Facebook Pixels in your Shop. And Google Analytics keeps giving you valuable info by linking your shop and your account with the Tracking ID.
We’re happy to be able to introduce these features to you. Have fun trying them out!
there the shop social media share button is not on the top as seen on your description. In every store social sharing button have with products only!
you need to switch it on as shown in the description of this blogpost. Can you let me know your ShopID so I can have a look please?
This is good
How can I join? I want to sell my design but UAE is not available
It’s great but when will we have more languages like Chinese, Japanese, Russian or …?
not any time soon since we do not have platforms in these countries. But hopefully in a couple of years we will 😉
Thank you guys for all of this! Came just in time for my massive launch I’m preparing!
YEAY! Cool to hear that you like it 🙂
Do we still need to have duplicate EU and US shops or are they merged now?
no they are not merged yet. We have not yet merged the European and North-American platform.
The language and currency option only works within either the European or the North-American platform.
Let me know if you have any further questions!
Making shops available for all languages and currencies is a great idea. Hopefully this will increase sales.
I also added the social icons to the header. Way to go Spreadshirt!
