Shopify is an ideal platform for business owners to grow their brands. Everything you need to start, sell, market, and manage your business is under one roof. The secret to success on Shopify is taking full advantage of the tech stack available in Shopify’s App Store.
With more than 6,000 apps in the Shopify app store (and tons being added every month), there are a wide variety of apps businesses can use to succeed and help with everything merchants need to make a business move forward.
From shipping and fulfillment to subscriptions and reviews, apps in the Shopify ecosystem provide a range of services to help take your Shopify store to the next level. Looking to increase your customer lifetime value? Consider using a subscription app, like Recharge. Looking to boost your average order value? Look for apps that maximize the spend of your current customers.
Here are 4 fantastic, no-code apps to boost conversions in your pre and post-purchase funnel.
The pre- and post-purchase funnel are an essential step to success on any ecommerce site. The pre-purchase funnel focuses on getting your customers to engage with you through brand awareness while being educated on what your product/solution can do for them. All lead to the end result of customers making a purchase.
Upsell Progress Bar:
Upsell Progress Bar is a fantastic new Shopify app that helps boost the average order value for customers as they are shopping. The progress bar increases as more items are added to the cart. The progress bar allows customers to unlock incentives while shopping such as free shipping or free products. Place the progress bar on your product page or the cart page and help your customers through the pre-purchase funnel.
It's a great way to increase engagement on a product and ultimately lead to purchase. The progress bar is just one way customers can be engaged, educated, and informed as they move through the purchase funnel and hit that add to cart button.

Acquiring new customers costs 5 times as much as retaining existing ones and having a post-purchase strategy is an essential part of increasing AOV and customer retention. In order to retain your customer and turn them into repeat buyers, you should have a strategy in place. Through retention, you can begin to ask if your customer is satisfied with their purchase and the overall shopping experience. Are there gaps and did you miss any opportunities to upsell? Have they turned into advocates and become fans?
You can build out a successful post-purchase strategy by using some amazing apps that can help with everything from post-purchase offers to landing pages, to incentives to a successful email campaign.
CartHook is the "best way to increase your AOV and make your customers love your brand." CartHook Post Purchase Offers lets Shopify brands increase their revenue (without increasing traffic)!
