5 Apps That Tailor Your Shopify Store To Meet Your Business Needs
Shopify is quickly becoming the leading ecommerce platform. Like all software, there’s always room to improve and add features that make running an online business easier. That’s why we’ve created some important apps to fill in those gaps.
Our apps are designed to meet the growing demands of the Shopify community. We frequently build out ecommerce stores on Shopify so we know exactly what businesses need. We’ve been Shopify partners since 2017 so we know the platform well, and are committed to creating solutions that Shopify doesn’t offer out of the box.
Here’s a brief look at five of our apps that will enhance the customer experience on your Shopify store and get you more sales:
1. Multi Pricing Shopify app
If you’ve ever visited an online retail store that offers memberships, you may have noticed special member pricing for certain products. For example, Best Buy offers special discounts for members and so does Barnes & Noble. With most ecommerce platforms, discounted prices are generally programmed to show up only after the user logs in to their account. If a user doesn’t log in before browsing the site, they don’t get to see special member pricing.
Sometimes the discounted price isn’t shown to logged in users until the user checks their shopping cart to see what their total is. This might work if you’re a major retail giant and people will buy from you regardless, but if you’re a small to medium sized business, it just won’t do.
The multi pricing app from Digital Takeout solves this dilemma. You can have multiple prices for the same product that display side-by-side. For example, you may want to add a 15% fee to sell a product VAT free. Or, you may want to provide a 15% discount for loyalty program members. Each pricing option is labeled, so customers will know what each price represents.
Member discounts can be displayed next to non-member prices, even in the cart and at checkout to encourage new shoppers to become members.
The app comes with a 7-day free trial and full support from our friendly tech team.
Tips for using this app:
Avoid programming duplicate products with discounted prices. With this app, you can apply multiple prices to the same item and change or delete special prices at any time. For example, if you discount an item by 20% and need to cut back to 10%, you don’t have to delete a product and create a new product to do it. Simply access the admin panel and change the discount amount.
This app may conflict with themes using Ajax to dynamically load content. Multi Pricing has been tested and verified to be compatible with the following Shopify themes:
If you don’t see your theme on the list, before purchasing this app, contact us and we’ll help you determine if you can use it. If your theme turns out to be incompatible, you may want to consider switching to a compatible theme. Offering special pricing is an effective marketing tool that can help you generate more sales.
2. Clear Pricing Shopify app
A study performed in 2011 found that 71% of UK shoppers said they would abandon a shopping cart if there were hidden charges at checkout. After 7 years of large-scale testing, Baymard has documented that the average large-sized ecommerce site can increase their conversion rate by 35.26% by optimizing the checkout process. Since a large percentage of people abandon their cart due to hidden fees, it makes sense that implementing clear pricing will help.
Our Clear Pricing app displays all costs to the customer before checkout. Your customers will see the product price, VAT and shipping fees before they begin the checkout process. Combined with our Multi Pricing app, you can attract overseas customers by showing them VAT free pricing before they checkout.
This app works to show the shipping costs set up in Shopify, but doesn’t currently support third-party shippers like FedEx or UPS. These carriers will be supported in a future release.
Clear Pricing comes with a free 7-day trial, so you can try it before you buy it.
3. Easy Invoice Shopify app
Complying with accounting legislature on invoices can be tricky no matter where you live. Our Easy Invoice app creates beautiful, professional invoices for your customers. Our generated invoices are automatically compliant with accounting legislature in the United States, Canada, the EU, and others.
Our Easy Invoice app makes it easy to automatically set EU business customers as Tax Exempt. You can view, download, or resend invoices with a single click. Invoices can be generated in any language and request payment in any currency. You can also display your customer’s VAT or GST number on the invoice.
There’s no limit to the number of invoices you can send with this app, so check it out! We offer a free 7-day trial so can try it before you buy it.
4. OrderLimits Shopify app
Whether your products are genuinely limited or you’re using scarcity as a marketing strategy, our OrderLimits app lets you set a minimum and maximum for several product variables.
With the OrderLimits app, you can set limits on:
The subtotal value of a customer’s order
The total number of items in an order
The number of items for a specific product
This app may conflict with themes using Ajax to dynamically load content. OrderLimits has been tested and verified to be compatible with the following Shopify themes:
If you don’t see your theme on the list, before purchasing this app, contact us and we’ll help you determine if you can use it. If your theme turns out to be incompatible, you may want to consider switching to a compatible theme. Creating the impression of scarcity is an effective marketing tool that can help you generate more sales.
5. Timer Banner Shopify app
You’ve probably seen product pages with a timer counting down the minutes until the special discount expires. Other timers display the number of items left in stock. These timers are a marketing technique designed to create a sense of urgency for the customer to make a purchase immediately.
You can create that sense of urgency with our Timer Banner app. You decide which products and pages display the banner. Create custom background colors or use custom images with your countdown timer. Display a custom message to your customers with different font options. You can even add a call-to-action button to get customers to take swift action.
