How to detect whether a shop already supports Checkout Extensibility or not?

Hello Shopify folks,

 

I am on my way to adapt my existing app to be compatible with Checkout Extensibility. Until checkout.liquid customisations will be sundowned 2025, this app should be compatible to both, offering different settings for each of them.
I unsuccessfully tried to find a reliable attribute that tells me, whether Checkout Extensibility is activated or not. 


Can you direct me where I can find this?

Hey @Ebbu 

 

Checking on this one with the Checkout team and will report back.

Is there an update on this? It would be beneficial to check whether the merchant is using checkout extensibility.

Our app caters to both the old checkout and checkout extensibility. Some settings apply to either of these implementations that don't necessarily work for both, so knowing which checkout they would be very helpful.

Hey @Ebbu + @JTD - currently there's no API to expose this. I can see the benefit of exposing this and have passed along your feedback.

Thank you @SBD_ for your committment and the upate. 
Is it realistic the Checkout team may provide something within the next weeks (before non-ShopifyPlus users jump on CE from the beginning of April)?

@SBD_ We would love to have this. Currently we need to show both ways and let merchant decide which one to choose. Would be great if we can suggest the right approach using api.
