Shopify Plus bonus feature

If you are a Shopify Plus merchant, an additional feature can be optionally added to the Shopify Checkout. You get the ability to separate the shipping total from the duty and tax total, as shown in the screenshot below. The orders will still import as an all-inclusive total in shipping, but you can show the breakdown to your customers at checkout.

  • If your Shopify base currency is not in USD, the above feature will work on your Shopify Checkout.
  • If you are using Shopify’s multiple currency support, we do not recommend adding this feature. This is because the totals in checkout will not match up on the front-end; however, the customer will still be charged the correct amount, regardless.
