Shopify Pre-Migration Checks

Afterpay has released a new integration on Shopify for processing transactions. This new integration supports Shopify’s new payments platform, before Shopify deprecates its current payment integrations by Dec. 31, 2021.

The new integration behaves exactly the same as the old integration but has 2 new elements:

  • Manual Capture Support - Afterpay will now let merchants capture the consumer’s order within 13 days of when shoppers checkout.
  • Updated naming “Afterpay (New)” - Afterpay’s naming in Shopify’s settings and orders data will reflect as “Afterpay (New)” to prevent confusion as merchants migrate between integrations. Please note order analytics and other integrations will show the new and old integration separately.

Manual Capture Support


In the Payment Settings, a merchant may apply manual capture or automatic capture.
Shopify Help Article: Capturing Payments

Example of Payment Capture Method Settings:

Afterpay’s authorization hold will be valid for a period of 13 days from the time of auth. Any uncaptured amount will be automatically voided, and the voided amount reduced from the Afterpay consumer’s outstanding balance of the order. If the voided amount is more than the consumer’s outstanding balance of the order, the consumer will be refunded the remainder of the voided amount, up to the authorized amount.

You will be able to capture Afterpay orders in the same fashion as any other order on Shopify, via the order’s tab, third-party integrations, or Shopify’s API.

No. Shopify does not support the ability to perform multiple captures on the same order. An ‘Auth Approved’ order can be updated to ‘Paid’ or ‘Partially Paid’ status on a single occasion.

Any remaining amount would be voided and refunded to the customer.

Shopify Help Article: Capture Payments Manually

Afterpay will settle orders which are manually captured in a ‘Paid’ or ‘Partially Paid’ Shopify status. Example, an ‘Auth Approved’ order is updated to a ‘Paid’ status on Jan 01.

Afterpay Reconciliation process for this order would begin the next day on Jan 02.

To update your capture setting to “automatic capture”, follow the instructions on the following Shopify Help Article: Set Up Automatic Capture

Example of Automatic Capture Payment settings:

New Afterpay Name - “Afterpay (New)”

For Australia and New Zealand: The new Afterpay Payment App, will continue to have the name “Afterpay”. You may see the name “Afterpay (New)” in some areas, but reporting and orders should continue to reflect the name “Afterpay”.

For United States and Canada: you would have previously see the name “Afterpay North America” or “Afterpay_North_America”. The new Afterpay Payment App, will now have the name “Afterpay”. You may see the name “Afterpay (New)” in some areas, but reporting and orders should reflect the name “Afterpay”. If you have any integrations or reports that have the name “Afterpay North America” (or “Afterpay_North_America”) you will need to update these to “Afterpay” or “Afterpay (New)”.
