Shopify is one of the best ecommerce platforms out there when it comes to functionality and ease of use right out of the box. That’s why over 4 million online businesses have already chosen Shopify as the place to run their businesses. However, all online stores are unique and have different needs across all facets of business, from page design and marketing to back-end reporting.
That’s where the Shopify App Store comes in. With over 8,000 tried, tested and vetted apps from a community of expert app developers, it enables merchants to add a wealth of functionality and customisation to their stores, helping increase visibility and usability.
There are lots of free apps, and there are some with tiered free and paid for plans. Some of them require a one-off installation fee and others have a monthly subscription. There are also many different categories of apps depending on what they do for your site.
In this article we’ve taken a look at some of the top apps available in the app store and separated them into categories. We’ve given a brief overview of how each one helps your store and linked to each one so you can check them all out for yourself.
So without further ado, here it is - our top 99 (approx) Shopify apps!
