The 15 Best Shopify Plus Apps in 2024

Key takeaways:

What makes Shopify great is the vast ecosystem of more than 11,000 third-party apps that help you power up your online store.

It's no different if you're a Shopify Plus user. A lot of Shopify apps are perfect for enterprise-level Shopify Plus stores, who want to add functionality to boost conversion rates, average order value and retention.

Using our experience working with high-level ecommerce stores, we've put together a list of the best Shopify Plus apps you need to know about. Read on for more.

The Best Apps for Shopify Plus Stores in 2024

Let's jump right into it - the best apps to consider if you're one of the nearly 50,000 Shopify Plus users around the world.

Honorable Mention: MobiLoud

We're starting off with one that's not actually a Shopify app.

Our platform, MobiLoud, is the best way to convert a Shopify store into a mobile app.

It serves the same purpose as a lot of Shopify mobile app builders that you'll install through the Shopify App Store. But it works differently, which has some advantages.

MobiLoud converts your entire web store into Android and iOS apps, complete with all the features, apps, integrations and custom touches of your website.

By building an app, you'll increase revenue from your mobile shoppers, add a powerful acquisition channel and brand authority signal, and get a tool that's perfectly designed for boosting retention.

It's particularly well suited for Shopify Plus users, who are more likely to have unique features, custom features or integrations and minor optimizations to improve performance.

If you use a Shopify app to build a mobile app for your store, these customizations won't work in your app. You'll have an app that's a shell of your website, nothing more.

“The app needs to be at least as functional as the website. It doesn’t need to be better than the website, but the user experience can’t be worse.”

- David Cost, Rainbow Shops

MobiLoud lets you keep everything on your website, whether it works with the Shopify API or not. And not only do we do all the heavy lifting to build your apps and publish them to the app stores, we provide bespoke service to make sure your app continues to provide an amazing user experience for years after launch.

We've been in the business of converting websites into apps for more than 10 years, with over 2,000 apps built, including numerous high-revenue ecommerce brands. Check out these case studies to get an idea of what's possible.

1. Judge.me

Social proof is the lifeblood of customer trust. Shoppers tend to trust other people, not ecommerce brands, so having reviews and user generated content (UGC) on your store is vital to building trust. Judge.me lets you do just that.

Not only does it offer a space for customers to enter reviews, but you can send targeted emails after someone places an order to request a review. Furthermore, you can get your star rating inserted into your store’s entry on Google. Reviews are shareable on social media, too. Best of all, this app has a free tier available.

2. Criteo

Criteo is a Shopify marketing app that lets you send targeted ads. This means you capture specific audiences, recapture your loyal customers, or find totally new audiences. This app also uses machine learning based on over 1.2 billion shoppers. 

Criteo claims they use to deliver retargeted ads that can deliver a 13x return. Retargeted ads follow shoppers after they leave your store and remind them of your offerings even when they are on another site. That’s a powerful tool to have at your disposal.

3. Trust Badges Bear

Along with social proof, customers want to be reassured that their credit information is safe with you. The Trust Badges Bear Shopify app makes inserting badges for each of your accepted payment methods easy, which can help lead to fewer abandoned carts.

You can add these badges to any page on your ecommerce store. You may choose their original colors or customize them. Over 300 trust badges are already included, and new ones are added periodically. This Shopify app has a free tier available, too.

4. Omnisend

Personalization is fundamental to success for ecommerce sites, and Omnisend lets you do exactly that. This Shopify app allows you to send personalized email campaigns, push notifications, SMS marketing campaigns, and more.

Beyond this powerful feature, you can create exit pop-ups to catch shoppers before they leave your store, set up abandoned cart reminders, and more. 24/7 customer support is available, too, so if you ever run into issues, you don’t have to worry. 

There’s a free tier, but it is limited to 500 emails per month. You’ll have to choose a paid tier if you want more than that.

5. Wishlist Plus

Wishlist Plus simplifies implementing a wishlist feature on your Shopify ecommerce store. Unlike an “add-to-cart” button, a wishlist is a lower-pressure way for shoppers to bookmark products they want to return to later. 

For you, a wishlist is a perfect opportunity to send reminder emails, low-stock alerts, and more. Thanks to its guest wishlist feature, Wishlist Plus lets you do this even if the customer doesn’t have an account. Customers can even share their wishlists via social media, SMS, and email, which means more exposure for your brand, too. 

A free Wishlist Plus tier is available but is more limited than the paid tiers. Depending on the size and number of shoppers in your ecommerce store, there are three paid tiers to choose from.

6. Smile.io

Smile.io is a loyalty program app for Shopify. Loyalty programs are a great way to curate a list of dedicated customers so you can deliver targeted communications to them. Smile.io lets you customize your rewards, how many points loyal customers can earn based on their purchases, and more.

You can send reminders about the number of points your loyalty program members have and even let guest shoppers earn points if you want. Plus, the app comes with an auto-translate ability that supports six languages out of the box.

There’s a free tier available, but it critically lacks the ability to send customized emails, which is a significant drawback. That feature is only available in the $50 monthly and above tiers.

7. Klevu

Klevu is a product search Shopify app. Customers appreciate search features on an ecommerce store because it helps them find exactly what they are looking for, and Klevu lets you optimize that experience.

Klevu uses AI to help facilitate product search and recommendations. That means personalized recommendations for each shopper, easy filtering through results, and snappy navigation through your store. 

Klevu is undoubtedly powerful, but no free tier is available. It begins at $399 monthly, but only for recommendations. Site search is $599 monthly, and category merchandising is $499 monthly. This pricing model likely puts Klevu out of reach for smaller businesses.

8. Searchanise

If Klevu costs too much for you, try Searchanise instead. It has a free tier and a 14-day free trial period for the paid tiers.

You get all the essential product search features a Shopify ecommerce store needs. These include filters, AI-enhanced searching, and the ability to search across all your store’s pages. 

If you pay more, you get more features; with the priciest $39 per month tier, you get everything mentioned above, plus voice search, banners, and email support for any issues that crop up. You can also modify your Searchanise app if you wish.

9. Veeqo

So far, many of the Shopify apps on this list have been customer-focused. Veeqo, on the other hand, is targeted toward ecommerce owners and operators. It helps you find the lowest available shipping rates from USPS, UPS, FedEx, and DHL in the U.S.

Plus, you can manage and track orders, ship multiple orders with one click, and get reports on them all. You can even update your stock on eBay, Amazon, Shopify, and other platforms. 

Veeqo’s pricing is not like other Shopify apps, either. You do not pay anything upfront. Instead, you are charged for shipping labels based on the carrier, shipping method, and other optional services. This is nice for a small business, but be aware that the costs could balloon fast if you have many orders shipping out.

10. Lucky Orange

Lucky Orange is a powerful tool for e-commerce stores on Shopify because it lets you track your customers' activities. You get visual depictions of what customers buy, where they spend the most time, the ability to send out surveys, and more.

Heatmaps will show you where your shoppers place their cursor and what they click on, which can be handy in optimizing your store's design. Instead of guessing what your customers want, surveys let you ask specific questions and test your changes with A/B testing.

A free tier is available but only allows for 100 sessions per month. Thankfully, even the most expensive plan tops out at $79 per month, so a tier should be available to suit almost any business.

11. Referral Candy

Want to explore affiliate and referral marketing but don’t know how? Try the Referral Candy Shopify app. It allows you to set up an affiliate or referral program quickly.

Affiliate and referral programs are great ways to harness word-of-mouth advertising and build customer trust. Referral Candy lets you set up automatic rewards, coupons, and other incentives, which can help drive sales further. Additionally, you can send emails or pop-ups after a customer buys something, encouraging them to sign up for your affiliate program.

There is no free tier of Referral Candy available. It starts at $59 per month, and this price includes live chat support, which is handy.

12. Rebuy

Rebuy uses AI and machine learning to let you personalize your Shopify store to your customers. You can utilize it to send targeted upsells, cross-sells, recommendations, and more.

Product recommendations will be based on data and offered at checkout, which is a great way to snag an impulse buy. You can also create post-purchase engagements and set up a quick landing page to handle re-orders.

No free tier of Rebuy is available. It starts at $99 per month and supports up to 1,000 orders a month, with the most expensive $749 tier handling 7,500 orders per month. That range should cover most small and mid-size businesses, but enterprises may not find this enough capacity.

13. NoFraud

NoFraud is as much for you as it is for your customers. It cuts down on chargebacks, fraudulent charges, and other sources of scams.

This helps get orders approved faster, which is better for your bottom line and makes your customers happier. If a chargeback does happen, NoFraud will pay you back. You can also create your own rules and customizations to optimize NoFraud or let its internal AI handle it.

There’s also 24/7 phone and email support, so someone is always there if anything goes wrong. NoFraud is free to install, but after that, the pricing is “flexible,” depending on your needs, according to NoFraud.

14. AfterShip Returns

Returns can be a big headache, but a reliable return policy is vital to reducing abandoned carts. That is where AfterShip comes in.

AfterShip automates the returns process. You can set up a self-service returns page on your Shopify store and send email notifications to reassure customers that their returns went as expected. 

You can highlight flexible refunds and exchanges and set up return time windows. On the back end, AfterShip can handle automatic restocking and carrier and warehouse settings to boot. It works with UPS, USPS, FedEx, and Canada Post.

There is a free tier, but it only allows for three returns per month. At $23 monthly, you get 60 returns as part of the price; each additional return is 50 cents extra. At $59 monthly, you get 100, with additional returns being 50 cents extra again, and at $239 monthly, you get 200 returns monthly, with additional returns being $1 extra.

15. Gorgias

Confused customers are often prone to abandoning carts. You can prevent this with Gorgias, a Shopify app that integrates customer support into your ecommerce store. 

Gorgias lets you set up a support channel via email, chat, SMS, voice, WhatsApp, and even social media comments or DMs. You also get a conversation history. That way, you can solve customers' problems and help drive sales from almost anywhere. Additionally, you can set up self-service menus so customers can find answers on their own.

The lowest price tier of Gorgias is $10 monthly, including 50 tickets per month, three customer support agents, and live chat. That is fine for small businesses, but larger ecommerce operations should check out the higher-priced tiers, which come with more monthly tickets and unlimited customer support agents.
