ShopWP image sizing feature

ShopWP Version 1.2.8

Hey everyone!

This week’s release contains a good mixture of bug fixes and feature updates. Notable new features include: image sizing, custom checkout domains, and support! See below for more detail.

๐ŸŽ New Feature: Image Sizing

Let’s say you’ve uploaded product images within Shopify that are very large and want to load smaller versions on WordPress. You can now do this by specifying a width and height for Product images to scale down to. Behind the scenes, we’re using Shopify’s URL filters which means you also get cropping and scaling!

Cropping the image comes in handy when you want your images to have a consistent size.ย To do this, simply set the width and height to the same value and choose an appropriate crop value. “Center” usually works well.

๐ŸŽ New Feature: Custom Checkout Domain

For business owners, one of the most annoying features of the Shopify checkout experience has been the lack of domain customization. Recently Shopify rolled this feature out for all users which ShopWP can also leverage!

If you’re using a custom domain in Shopify and want the ShopWP cart to redirect users to the checkout page with this domain, you can find the new setting within the “Checkout” settings sub nav.
