Best Shopify Plugins

Shopify is one of the most popular ecommerce platforms in the business — with good reason. The Shopify App Store is brimming with easy-to-use apps you can plug in to your ecommerce store to streamline your operations and put more money in your pocket. Here are five of the best shopify plugins we’ve seen…

1. Caramel

Social media marketing can eat up hours of your time and ROI can be less than impressive at times. Caramel is changing all that by connecting ecommerce retailers with social media influencers. Simply select the products you want to advertise, then set a reward for influencers who take up your cause.

Best of all, it’s not pay-per-click. You only pay rewards when a product is sold. When an influencer chooses to promote your product, they post it to their feed with a referral link. Then, when the product sells, Caramel pays your specified reward to the influencer. It’s a win-win!

Price: Free for Shopify Plans $79/month or above.

2. Back in Stock Alerts

Stop losing business due to out-of-stock products with this nifty app. When a product falls out of stock, your customers enter their data into a pop-up window to receive a back-in-stock notification. Then, when the product in question comes back into stock, this app will automatically send out notifications to your customers.

The app also provides handy analytics about your most popular and best-selling products, and an export function enables you to use the customer data the app collects for other marketing campaigns. Back-in-stock buttons and email templates are fully customisable, so you can keep your brand front and centre.

Price: From $19.95 per month

Shipping rates can be a significant obstacle to sale and lead to rising abandoned cart rates as your potential customers are scared off during the checkout process. That’s why it’s vital for ecommerce businesses to provide the most competitive shipping rates possible. The Shopify Shipping App by Transdirect gives you that power.

You get access to Australia’s largest courier and freight companies, and the app enables you to display the best possible shipping rate to each and every customer in real time — all with the click of a button. The app integrates into your checkout process seamlessly, is simple to configure, and features order sync functionality.
