The checkout API for international Shopify brands.

While Shopify is an effective platform that helps merchants grow in one market, the moment you decide to expand internationally, a single storefront does not scale. You get limited capabilities, risk costly currency fluctuations, and pay conversion and transaction fees that reduce your bottom line.

Built for developers. By developers.

Commerce Layer helps you avoid the obstacles as you scale your Shopify Store internationally.

  • Enable currency-based promotions in minutes
    Shopify Markets' percentage-based and fixed-amount discounts can show differing rates in currencies as foreign exchange rates fluctuate. With Commerce Layer, promotions are specific to a currency, giving you the confidence that your promotions are always priced accurately.
  • Step-by-step How-tos
    Leverage our step-by-step tutorials, featuring real-world examples and best practices for the most common scenarios. Use our dashboard, API, and other developer tools to automatically localize product pages, set up and place orders, integrate local payment gateways, and more.
  • Eliminate currency risk and conversion costs
    Fluctuating foreign exchange rates can change multiple times while customers are placing an order. Eliminate the fluctuation risk when rates negatively affect your conversion costs by selling directly with local market currencies.
Use Commerce Layer within Shopify to localize your foreign transactions and minimize both risk and costs.

The Best of Both Worlds

  • Reduce development complexity with one Shopify Store
    Use Commerce Layer to manage multiple stores within one Shopify accountand decrease developer demands, infrastructure costs, and technical debt.
  • Remove data duplication errors
    Managing your store from one instance removes the need to duplicate or localize data anytime changes are made. Commerce Layer handles the localization of all your transactional data for you.
  • Keep everything you love about Shopify
    Because Commerce Layer is 100% transactional, we don’t overlap with Shopify’s CMS or themes. Keep the benefits while adding robust international capabilities.
