Universal Design: Shopify's Strategies for ADA Accessibility

What is ADA?

The 1990 ADA (American Disabilities Act) aimed to make sure that people with disabilities can enjoy and use "public accommodation places" equally. Today, the Department of Justice (DOJ), courts, and lawyers recognize that such places include websites and mobile apps and should be accessible.

Why is it important for your Shopify site to be ADA Compliant?

Shopify site owners are realizing that having an accessible website is a crucial aspect of doing business. We've reached a point where websites are considered "places of public accommodation" and are subject to the American Disabilities Act, not just ethically but legally.

E-commerce and Shopify websites that are not ADA compliant are vulnerable to legal actions from law firms looking for quick settlements. Currently, the retail sector is the primary target for ADA-related litigation, and even after the pandemic, demand letters and lawsuits are on the rise.
