Shopify Recent Developments

In September 2018 – Shopify launched its new Shopify App Store. Originally launched in 2009, the Shopify App Store is a collection of free and premium apps that extend the functionality of Shopify merchants’ online stores, helping them sell more and save time.


Through a beautiful redesign, machine learning algorithms, and improved search functionality, the new Shopify App Store prioritizes discovery of apps through personalized recommendations, enabling merchants to make better and faster decisions for their businesses.


Apps play an integral role in a Shopify merchant’s commerce journey. With more than 85% of surveyed merchants saying that they rely on apps to run their businesses, Shopify has invested in redesigning the Shopify App Store to match the complexities of running a commerce business in 2018 and beyond.


Shopify’s new app store uses machine learning to power smart app recommendations. This new adaptive user experience is tailored, making it easier for merchants at any stage in their business to find the right apps they need to support and grow their business. The machine learning algorithms on the Shopify App Store are designed to make better and more useful recommendations over time, as they learn about merchants’ businesses and which apps are driving results.


Shopify’s new app store will provide an even better platform for developers to showcase their Shopify apps and grow their own businesses. As app stores mature they can become bloated with too many options, making it difficult and frustrating for users to find the right app. This can result in a lower discoverability and download rate for apps.


No matter how good an app is, it won’t get traction if it is not surfaced to the right user. To assist with discovery and decision making, Shopify has updated app classifications to be more specific to the commerce challenge the app addresses and restructured the app listing page to clearly communicate exactly what merchants need to know.


With this new, conversion-optimized layout, merchants will be able to discover apps faster, quickly understand an app’s value, and make a decision to install. While merchants enjoy a better app discovery and greater personalization, Shopify developers will benefit by getting more highly qualified leads to their app listings.
