Why can't I place the apps in checkout?

On February 1st, 2019, Shopify will be releasing an important change to the functionality of the checkout. For all shops opened after this date, the 'Add custom Javascript to Google Analytics' section in Online Store > Preferences will no longer accept any scripts that are not used exclusively for Google Analytics. 

This includes using custom JavaScript in this field to insert: 

  • Visual elements into checkout, such as trust badges, custom breadcrumbs, etc. 
  • Checkout countdown timers or reservation messages
  • Additional checkout fields

Additional scripts added to this field that are related to Google Analytics will not be affected, and will continue to work as expected.
