Starting a Shopify Dropshipping store and don’t know what apps to install? Then make sure to check out this article for the Top 5 must have Shopify apps in 2022!
The apps in our list not only increase your online store sales… They’ll also get your customers to trust you more and even automate your chargebacks!
So if you want to start your Dropshipping journey the right way, then make sure to check out these must have Shopify apps.
1. Sendvio: Email Marketing & SMS
Previously known as Abandonment Protector, Sendvio is one of the rare Shopify apps that you end up using for years because it simply works and makes you money!
For every store we create, Sendvio will definitely end up installed because it pays for itself in no time.
The abandonment protection features work great and are super easy to setup – Perfect for newbie dropshippers that have no idea how to setup an Email Marketing flow.
On top of the abandonment protection features, you also have the usual Thank you & Welcome email flows. And you can easily setup a newsletter flow if needed.
But now with the new brand comes also the SMS automation feature:
A great new feature which allows SMS checkout recovery and regular SMS marketing. SMS marketing is really powerful and its conversion rate is through the roof if you compare it to Email Marketing.
So yeah… This feature came just in time to make us some money 😉
Back when it was called Abandonment protector, the cost of this app was a flat $8 per month with a 30-day free trial. But now it evolved into 2 separate plans.
One is totally FREE and pretty generous – Up to 500 emails a month is awesome and should be enough to show you how much money this app can do for you.
The Professional one starts at $11/month and an extra $3/month is added every 1,000 new contacts are added. I think it’s a fair price and if you reach this point, then this app is definitely covering its price with what it brings you back in sales.
2. Ali Reviews Shopify app
Ali Reviews Shopify app will help you increase your online store trust with some real-looking and stunning reviews that you can import straight from Aliexpress.
Having real reviews on your product page with real photos attached to each review is sometimes the only thing that will decide if a customer is actually going to purchase from your store.
Nowadays, customers depend so much on reviews that recent studies showed that about 75%+ of the new-gen customers check reviews and only then decide if they’re going buy the product.
So with good looking reviews on your product page, you’ll definitely get more sales than ever and this can be the difference between making profit or losing money.
In this case, you’ll have to take the $10/month plan if you want your review section to look complete.
You also have other features included in this plan like a review page and more stuff so it’s worth it overall.
3. Chargeflow Dispute Chargebacks Shopify app
Chargeflow will automate chargebacks on your behalf and protect you from possible money frauds that unfortunately are way too frequent these days.
Designed to help you win more chargebacks, Chargeflow assembles relevant chargeback evidence from millions of data points(based on dispute reason), processes the custom-tailored evidence with Artificial Intelligence, and submits it directly to the card issuer on your behalf.
Chargeflow works with PayPal, Stripe, and Shopify Payments and you have a much higher chance of winning a dispute with them if you were to manually submit it yourself.
The really cool thing about Chargeflow is the success-based pricing, which means that you only pay when you win. Only a 20% fee will be charged for each recovered dispute.
A dispute that could’ve been lost if not for Chargeflow…
4. Parcel Panel Order Tracking Shopify app
If you’re looking for a way to reduce a big chunk of your customer support emails, then the Parcel Panel Shopify app is what you need!
With this app, you can setup a tracking page inside your Shopify store with a few clicks.
Now when your customers are wondering where their order at, instead of emailing your support they can just open the tracking page and track their order there.
It reduces the amount of support emails you receive and it will also increase your store’s trust because customers will see a tracking page which means that the orders are being shipped & delivered 😊
The FREE version is where you should start and pay only when you start receiving more than 20 orders a month. Pretty fair pricing if you ask me, with a free plan with almost no limits.
5. Unlimited Bundles and Discounts Shopify app
Unlimited Bundles & Discounts Shopify app allows you to quickly build awesome looking bundles from the existing products in your online store.
This is a must have app because you can’t be selling only one product each time…
If there’s a chance to increase your AOV(Average Order Value), then you must cease that opportunity and offer your customers to purchase more products.
It can be a bundle of products from the same niche, or a simple “buy more, pay less” quantity discount, everything goes if at the end you make more profit.
The pricing is simple and it will cost most of you who use the Basic Shopify plan only $14/month. But the free plan is more than enough if you’re just getting started.
The free plan is limited to only 1 bundle, so it’s really good if you have a one-product store. Or you can always try selling one product and switch to a different product when the time comes.
But again, this app will bring you back in sales so much more than you spend here so $14/month price is going to be covered in the first week.
To Sum It Up
These are the apps that we personally install when we open a new Shopify Dropshipping store. They have a HUGE impact on our sales and overall success, so even if the price was x3 higher we wouldn’t care.
