Shopify Apps are similar to WordPress Plugins but can be a bit more secure since they are not open source. Some apps are developed directly by Shopify while others are made by third-party developers.
Shopify apps can be used to accomplish a wide range of tasks, such as:
- Marketing and SEO: Shopify apps can help you improve your marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) efforts by providing tools for email marketing, social media marketing, search engine optimization, and more.
- Sales and Conversion Optimization: Apps can help you optimize your store for sales and conversions by providing features such as upselling and cross-selling, product recommendations, abandoned cart recovery, and more.
- Shipping and Fulfillment: Shopify apps can help you streamline your shipping and fulfillment processes by providing features such as real-time shipping rates, label printing, order tracking, and more.
- Inventory Management: Apps can help you manage your inventory by providing features such as inventory tracking, stock alerts, and automated order fulfillment.
- Accounting and Finance: Shopify apps can help you manage your accounting and finance tasks by providing features such as tax calculation, invoicing, and bookkeeping.
