One of the most common questions my Facebook Community for Shop Owners (JOIN HERE!) is “what are your favorite Shopify apps?”
Let me tell you, such a loaded question. There are over 5000 apps in the Shopify App Store now, and they all serve different purposes. So, really it depends on what you are trying to do when you are picking apps for your shop.
Before you install a bunch of apps in your shop, you also want to be sure to consider whether the app will truly add value to your store. Apps can slow down your load times and that’s a big factor when it comes to optimizing your store.
If you do try a new app and decide you don’t need to keep it, make sure to follow the app developer’s instructions for removing the app. If done incorrectly apps can leave behind code that interferes with other functions of your shop.
I almost never install apps that change the design because it’s better to do that in the code, instead of using an app.
That being said, I do have some apps that I really like using, so here’s my list.
Quick note - the pricing of apps changes periodically, so some prices in this post may not reflect the current pricing. To get the most update to the pricing of each app you’ll want to check the Shopify App Store.
My client, Joyia Jewelry, uses this app to offer gemstones on rings. Since rings come in so many sizes and she offers different metal types, all the combinations are too much for Shopify. This app is the perfect solution. And it even allows her to add an extra fee for the variation.
And at only $5 per month, it’s a great price. There are other apps that offer free plans for their wishlist, but those options tend to be really limiting, and once you move to the paid version, it’s often more expensive.
