Is ADA Compliance Required for Shopify Stores?

There are plenty of reasons for Shopify stores to prioritize accessible e-commerce. Not only is it good for business, but it’s also the right thing to do.

However, there’s another aspect of web accessibility that should not be ignored: the number of web accessibility-related lawsuits continues to rise, with 2022 setting another record for the number of claims filed in federal court.

It isn’t just large enterprise brands getting sued, either. Every business should be checking their website against international accessibility standards like the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

In 2022, the Department of Justice (DOJ) published new guidance reiterating its position that web accessibility is a requirement under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) — and recommended that businesses use WCAG when testing web content for accessibility.
