I am a Big, Big fan of Shopify, as it allows you to add new functionality to an online store and enhance the online selling experience with tons of apps. Whether you want to improve email marketing or to add customer reviews or anything, Shopify offers a large collection of apps in its app store for you. Of course, you need to have unique and advanced features in order to make your Shopify store stand out.
The selection of apps depends on many factors such as the size of a store, target audiences, your brand, and need. With hundreds of apps in the Shopify app store, you’ve got lots of options to choose from. That’s why we thought it would be helpful to showcase some of the best Shopify apps of 2017.
We are top-rated Shopify Experts in India and have built over 500 stores and over 5 custom apps for our clients (check out our portfolio and testimonials). Thus we come with a list of some of the best Shopify apps, which will help you to add exploitable functionality to your existing Shopify store:
Want to increase the trustworthiness of your shop? Yotpo app is the best way to build and increase the trust of customers. How? With this app, you are able to automatically get the site and product reviews and showcase them on the product page.
People like to buy from a site that has real user reviews. This app collects product reviews from your customers via email. After purchasing, customers will get an email to rate and review your product and those reviews are displayed directly on your site. Thus, it will help you to increase your sales with verified reviews.
This free app of Shopify will help you to add new meta fields to your product. You can also modify and delete the existing Metadata. Wait! Do not confuse it with HTML meta tags, as it has nothing to do with SEO. It has a simple interface and allows you to perform all the tasks on a single page.
With the Better Shipping app, you can maximize revenue by setting suitable shipping rates for your business. It allows you to set shipping rates for each product individually or on the number of products that customers buy or based on delivery areas (Zip/Postal Code).
Basic features of apps include per product shipping rates, location-based shipping prices, and can restrict delivery for a certain location.
The app allows you to bundle distinct products together so that your customers purchase them together. All the products are added together in the cart and a discount will be applied to each of them or to a whole bundle. It offers two types of bundle sales – Bundle by Product and Bundle by Collection.
