Rating: *****

16# Auto Currency Switcher


Order currency switcher is one of the best currency Shopify apps with a free plan, the free adds a drop-down menu that customers can use to switch between your chosen currencies, if don’t like the look of order currency switch the best currency converter, there is another excellent app that has a free plan, it will add a drop-down menu to your store so that customers can change currencies, personally are these two apps I think that this one looks the best.

Rating: 4.8 of 5 stars(5535 reviews)

22# Dropified


This is an essential Shopify app that semi-automates dropshipping stores into competitor number 3 Dropified is just like Oberlo and Shopzie it simplifies the process of adding products to your store and lets you fulfill items on Aliexpress with just one click, they’re unlike Shopzie there is no cash back, so you might be thinking, so why I use Dropified ID when Shopzie is cheaper and it gives me cash back, well that’s a good question and the answer to it is that Dropified ID has a unique feature it lets you drop ship items from retail stores such as eBay, Amazon, and Walmart, however, I’ve got to be entirely honest this not something that I recommend, this isn’t drop shipping, this is a form online retail arbitrage and in this article I explain why I do not like it! When you dropship from Aliexpress you would drop ship directly from manufacturers who understand that they are drop shipping and they will not include any invoices or marketing materials with the package but if you drop ship from Amazon as I’m taking item that’s listed on Amazon and then put it in your store for higher price and when sold then go buy it from Amazon and ship it to your customer guess what’s going to happen, it’s it going to come in a box contains Amazon logo, it’s going to come with an invoice showing how much money you’ve actually paid and the customer is going to be mad, so I don’t recommend that you go dropship from retail stores like Walmart and sites like Amazon and eBay that are going to include invoices an. marketing with the order however I also understand that regardless of my warning some people still want to do this and while I can’t recommend doing it this is the app that will make drop shipping from Amazon and eBay a lot easier.

Price: From $47/month. 14-day free trial.

Rating: 4.7 of 5 stars(107 reviews)

Rating: 4.7 of 5 stars(2100 reviews)

24# Oxi Social Login


Here is a nice simple app, Oxi Social Login app with this app customers can instantly create accounts in your store using social platforms like Facebook, this a lot easier than the traditional way of signing up, so you should see a significant bump in customers who create accounts with your store, if you want to entice customers even further to sign up for an account checkout smile, this app makes it simple and easy to create customer loyalty programs, this isn’t an EPS for new stores but once you’ve got an established store and brand loyalty programs are a great way to get repeat buyers and to encourage your customers to refer their friends which is the ultimate form of social proof.

Rating: 4.8 of 5 stars(351 reviews)

25# Finely tune your shipping rates


This is a pretty cool app because it solves the problem that a lot of dropshippers have, the “free just pay shipping” issue, you know Shopify doesn’t have a built-in way to run this sort of promo normally you have to set up complicated shipping rules using wight based rates within your stores to Mae this app fixes this, using it can group items together and seek their shipping tone whatever price you want regardless of the item weight and regardless of the item price the $9 a month plan will be perfect for most dropshippers.

Price: From $9/month. 7-day free trial.

Rating: 4.8 of 5 stars(211 reviews)

26# Advanced Shipping Manager


It’s great for Aliexpress but if you’re someone who is doing multi-channel fulfillment this is the app for you and yes that is expensive but if you’re one of my more advanced readers here who are using lots of different dropshipping platforms or different fulfillment centers or shipping to lots of different countries or whatever reason have lots of different shipping rates that you need to manage this app is great.

Here is another GDPR app one even more advanced while the previous free app just adds a banner the paid version of this app will block cookies from working on your site until a customer agrees to opt in the free version just adds a banner, now the GDPR laws are admittedly still extremely vague and so this might be overkill but if you want to be doubly safe and protect yourself legally this is the app for you.

This is my favorite Shopify upsell app available on the Shopify App Store, unfortunately it’s definitely one of the more expensive Shopify apps like anything in life, if something makes you money it’s inevitably probably going to cost a fair amount of money to buy it, SMART app is y favorite upset app for multiple reasons but one thing I think it makes professional great looking upsell boxes and unlike a lot of other apps you can prompt the customer with an upsell when they go to pay for the final order.

Weglot Translate

This is an app that will detect where a user is from and translate the page for them for free, on the Shopify page it says it’s free but if you actually go the Weglot website you will see that they charge you based on how many page views you get each month and how many languages you choose to translate, this app will automatically detect where the user is coming from and give them the translation on their language. With Weglot you’ve got two options; firstly you can let the app translate pages for you or you can go and use Weglot to update the text manually with a custom translation. If you looking to expand and dropship to countries like French where English is not the main language then I highly recommend that you install and use an app like this.

Price: Free to install. Additional charges may apply.

Rating: 4.8 of 5 stars(446 reviews)

52# Langify


If you like another option Langify is the most popular Shopify language app, now certainly a lot cheaper than weak losses that can be rather expensive, but there is a very big difference between the two apps, and that is that Langify does not translate a page for you instead it provides you with the tools to go in and manually translate a page yourself.

Rating: 4.8 of 5 stars(767 reviews)

Panda Language Translate

This is the third language app to choose from Panda Language Translate; this is a new app but it’s growing in popularity likely because of the fact that it’s so cheap like we clocked it will automatically translate a page for you but there is no option to update the language on the checkout page, so keeping in mind when selecting which app to choose.

55# Digital Salesperson Al by Fera

Urgency, Social Proof & Timers

You know those little you see in people Shopify stores saying just order this, those notifications come from apps like Digital SalesPerson, this app includes other scarcity timers too, now the first time I ever saw those thoughts of notifications being used on the internet was hotels sites like booking.com and besides like that they are extremely effective, why? Because we the customer understand and know that hotels only have so many rooms and so if all rooms are booked that’s it’s sold out you can’t book anymore, so keep that in mind when installing an app like this, yes they do add social proof but they work best when a customer knows or believes that stock is limited.

Price: Free plan available. Additional charges may apply.

Rating: 4.9 of 5 stars(2488 reviews)

Facebook & Google Easy Ads

There is another alternative app to choose from, ROI Hunter Easy Retargeting, although this app does have a big difference, this app will help you set up retargeting ads on Facebook and Instagram, it will help you set up retargeting ads on Facebook and Google for low ticket items, I usually recommend avoiding Google ads because they can be very expensive but for high ticket items, it can be extremely effective.

Shoelace will come in and sit up custom sequence of retargeting ads depending upon what  you’re selling, for example for the first three days they might see one aired and for the next three days they might see another ad and so on, the whole purpose of this retargeting journey is to bring the customer back to your store to complete their purchase, it also gives some difference ads depending  on where they are in the customer lifecycle, for example, if they just purchase nice them they’ll get a series of one particular type of ads or if they’ve just had an item shipped they’ll get another set of ads to keep in mind though that while this app says it’s free on the Shopify app page it’s definitely not free this is an advanced app that works best with high volume stores, not new ones.

Price: Free to install. Additional charges may apply.

60# Spin-a-Sale


This is one of the most notorious apps that Shopify dropshipping stores use the promisor is simple an option pop-up box with a wheel slides on-screen after entering in their name and email opting into your subscriber list, the wheel is spun and the customer wins a random coupon discount as free shipping or 20% off, the luck-based element of this app means that at least in the very beginning when this at first came out that it made it into a fun game and customers were more likely to opt-in, but now when it’s on a lot of stores, I’m skeptical but it’s as effective as it used to be because I would be suspecting that the novelty is wearing off for customers, however reading the reviews people still seem to find that it’s highly effective way to build a subscriber list and convert sales, so if you want to try it out in your own store, and I’m looking for a simple solution to do that app is very effective.

Price: From $9.99/month. 10-day free trial.

61# Amplify Me

AMP by Ampify Me

One of the factors that search engines like Google consider when choosing which websites to rank is load speed, with lots of images it’s very easy for stores to get clunky and start to load slowly; Amplify Me takes care of this for you massively optimizing your page load speed, especially on mobile devices and actually this app doesn’t benefit you from getting more SEO traffic, it benefits you because if customers find that your page loads slow then they’re more likely to bounce, people on the internet are impatient, speed is key.

63# Stamped.io Reviews

stamped io reviews

This app is one of Shopify reviews apps designed to get product reviews from customers. Customers can either fill out a review form or reply to a simple email but a sense of them that lets them fill out a review without leaving their email and having to go to your site; customers can also submit photos with their reviews are an amazing form of special proof, so you should try this Shopify reviews app and get as many reviews from customers as possible.



64# Yotpo Reviews, Photos, and Q&A


I don’t like “Stamped.io Reviews” then look at its competitor Shopify reviews app “Yotpo Reviews” does a lot of the same things as “Stamped.io Reviews” but unfortunately the premium pricing once you get over 50 orders is not transparent which is a shame.

66# Free Trust Badget


This app has no hidden costs, a trust badge is something like a credit card logo you put these logos onto your website so that customers can attach your brand to something that they already trust like Mastercard, and you can do that legitimately because you’re showing the customer that you accept payments from providers that they trust like Visa, MasterCard, and Paypal by connecting your brands to one that customers already trust you kindly to get too sniped a little bit of their trust for you and hopefully customers will feel more secure in purchasing from your store, it’s a simple app but that’s absolutely fine because it does a very simple thing, create beautiful trust badges for your site.

Price: Free to install. Additional charges may apply.

Rating: 4.9 of 5 stars(607 reviews)

67# Personalized

You know when you’re browsing a product on Amazon and under it as a recommendation of products for you, this app does that, it creates carousel of products that it recommends for the user based on their previous browsing history, this app is free but if a customer clicks on one of the items in the carousel and then ends up purchasing it you get charged a four percent commission on that sale which I think is fear.

Price: *****

Bold Upsell ‑ Upsell Smarter

Here is another Shopify upsell app that uses personalized recommendations to get customers to buy even more from you, Bold Upsell is upper smart, it tracks the customer data on your page to see which items customers are more likely to buy together.

For example let’s say that you were dropshipping coffee drip fight the F takes customer data and when a customer buy one pound of coffee from you, it figures out the most likely upsell that will convert them is to recommend that they buy two pounds of coffee instead and then at the checkout it figures out that the most likely cross through to succeed would be to buy a pack of coffee filters. This app helps you waste less time because it figures out what the best cross sales and upsells are for your store which helps you make money faster.
