8 Shopify Apps Your Store Needs
How to enhance your online business
Struggling with poor online sales and low conversion rates? Whether you’re already running an e-commerce business or just starting your online shop, these eight essential Shopify apps can help you boost your sales and get your site off the ground.
According to Business Insider, about 46.1% of cart abandonments occur at the payment stage. Why? Customers won’t fork out money from stores they don’t trust. McAfee SECURE will make your online store seems professional, secure and trustworthy. Plus, your customers will appreciate that they can get up to $100,000 in identity theft protection when they shop from your site.
Your customers will be able to edit, cancel, and reorder their purchases (before their orders are shipped) without having to wait for you or your staff before making the changes. When your customers cancel their order, all you have to do is sit back and relax as Orderify! will automatically refund their purchases. Who doesn’t like a seamless shopping experience?
This app makes it easy for you to edit or update details of an existing order. If a customer has ordered an item in the wrong size or accidentally purchased two shirts instead of one, you can alter the incorrectly placed order directly in Shopify. You can even use it to take phone orders, change a billing address, and cancel an order. Once changes are made, customers will receive an updated receipt for their order confirmation. Highly recommended for businesses often receiving bulk and phone orders.
Besides customising your receipt design, Conversio can help you send various marketing emails (receipts, newsletters, cart recovery) to tempt your clients into making more purchases. They’ve also upgraded the app to include widgets for built-in search engines, product recommendations, product reviews, and customer feedback to help your clients navigate the store with ease.
Easily track all your shipments and send automatic delivery updates (via email or SMS) to all your customers. AfterShip supports your FedEx, DHL, UPS, Singapore Post, Speedpost, and much more.
Boost your sales by offering a promo code or coupon right before your customers are about to abandon your site. You can customise the coupons offered (free shipping, 10% off, etc.) and use a split test within the app to determine which offer works best for you.
Better user experience is crucial in driving sales. With Persistent Cart, your customers’ shopping carts will be saved (even if they don’t make a purchase) so when they come back later, they know exactly where they’ve left off.
If you’re already using Facebook advertising, this app is a must. Audience Push will automatically sync your Facebook Custom Audience list with new customers to your site; every time a visitor register with your site, input a phone number or email, Audience Push will update your Custom Audience list for you. You’ll get to save a lot of time and still make sure that your Facebook ads will be shown to an audience who are most relevant to your brand.
