At its annual partner conference, Shopify announced a slew of enhancements to its direct-to-consumer platform for brands. The company announced a new Shopify Plus for enterprise, unveiled its next-generation Point of Sale (POS) software and added more language, payment, and store capabilities. The company also gave developers a handful of new tools.

Furthermore, Shopify unveiled a new AI-powered fulfilment network. The fulfilment network uses machine learning to ensure timely deliveries and lower shipping costs. The company’s inventory-allocation technology predicts the closest fulfilment centers and optimal inventory quantities per location. After a customer completes checkout, the Shopify Fulfilment Network takes it from there.
