Hey there Netlify Team!
I am currently developing a headless ecommerce site using Vue, Sanity, and Shopify… This is still a major WIP but the current Netlify domain is https://silene-lyalli.netlify.app. I have not connected to my client’s domain just yet since its still in development:)
I have two questions regarding this project:
- I will likely be transferring this site to my client’s own Netlify account since she is not technically a part of any team I am on… I have read over this support link and I will be contacting support when the time comes to transfer the site correctly…
MY QUESTION - Will the transferred site will still be updated if I push changes to the corresponding Github repository? My plan is to transfer the site to her account and set up a continuous build hook so the site updates once daily on its own, but I just need to know that if I make small changes to the site (say we find a bug that needs to be fixed) the site will update.
- After the site is transferred I have read that the Shopify checkout domain will still shown to users at checkout… This is because we are using a headless environment and Shopify uses their own custom checkout domain which is generally something like
my-store-name.myshopify.comto process payments… This is generally not a huge issue, but client contacted Shopify support and was told that this checkout domain is able to be changed to an existing domain, but that they would need aditional insights from third party hosting services (Netlify in this case) about to go about doing this… Would this just be a simple redirect they could do on their end? Any insights would be great!
Sorry this is a long post… but these are questions that more and more developers will be asking since many ecommerce stores are moving to a headless environment. Perhaps a cool Netlify ecommerce post discussing these questions in the future? I hope so:)
