Consider using 'lash clips' to help prevent lippage.

It's a T-shaped plastic piece with a wedge.---I'll see if I can find a link to a picture.
QEP | Lash

Many companies make clips like these---others may be better.

All mine are square---never tried the arch top ones.

Here is a fun post to read---Tuscan Leveling System - Flooring Picture Post - Contractor Talk - Professional Construction and Remodeling Forum

Depot carries the lash clips.

Anyone familiar with Mer-krete 705 or 710 ?

I will be using 12x24 porcelain on shower wall

Are either of these good for my application?
