Shopify Meetup: Unboxing Editions - Highlights and takeaways from an incredible afternoon

On August 24, 2022, Wave Commerce hosted our latest virtual event - Shopify Meetup: Unboxing Editions.

Why “Unboxing Editions” you ask? Editions is Shopify’s new format to explore the products and services you need to grow your business. Shopify Editions will be published twice a year, culminating in six months of product innovation at Shopify. That means there are 6 months of hundreds of incredible new features, tools, updates, products and more to unbox.

Given Shopify is a major global platform, many of the updates are focused on international markets, are not available in Asia, or will roll out here in the future.

So, we put together this Shopify Meetup for merchants to know which features they can use right away to grow their business, and how to use them (and why you should!).

A big thank you to Shopify for their amazing support:

Stan, Partner Enablement Manager, Shopify. Stan is the main product lead for Shopify in the region, overseeing the new feature rollouts here so it was fantastic to hear his insights directly, translating Editions into tips for Hong Kong merchants.

Leo, Enterprise Sales Executive, Shopify. Leo is a regular face at our Meetups, helping to answer any burning questions merchants have about Shopify Plus during breakout sessions.

Liwen, Senior Solutions Engineer, Shopify, and Yan, Solutions Engineer, Shopify, who both answered live-fire questions about the new Shopify features throughout the event and hosted breakout discussions.
