BigCommerce is one of the most popular eCommerce platforms for a reason. Its ease of use allows many entrepreneurs to put together their online stores effortlessly. The platform features hundreds of powerful apps and integrations, streamlining the process of creating the perfect storefront. With BigCommerce’s plug-and-play apps, you don’t have to be a tech genius to build your eCommerce business. You can take advantage of all the helpful tools to create a unique shopping experience for your customers and scale your business easily.
Here’s a list of our top five favorite, tried-and-true BigCommerce apps.
Email marketing is time-consuming. To run a successful eCommerce business, you’re already wearing too many hats. You’re the CEO, the product manager, the customer service specialist, and the marketing guru! Can you really squeeze out time for your email campaigns?
Klaviyo is our favorite solution for BigCommerce users who’d like to step up their email marketing game. It’s a backend powerhouse that combines customer behavior and in-depth data to create the most effective email marketing campaigns. Klaviyo’s platform can transform BigCommerce’s data into meaningful analytics, like your customers’ shopping patterns and past purchases. You don’t even have to spend much time on email marketing because Klaviyo already has a library of automated email content and layout prepared for you.
Presenting your online products properly is like creating a shelf display that encourages buying. Since you can’t help your customers face-to-face, you’ll want to make it easy for them to find the right products.
Nextopia provides eCommerce search solutions to help increase retail conversions. Its site search function pulls up accurate results along with adaptive product suggestions that are personalized for your customers. You can also sort your products by color, price, or other attributes, making it easy for shoppers to filter what they need.
For online businesses, good customer reviews are worth more than a billboard ad. However, not that many customers would go the extra mile to leave a positive review.
Yopto has a solution for you. The platform helps to generate product reviews by sending the buyers a reminder email. The catch? Customers can leave a review without having to leave their email app. You can also gather all your reviews in one place. By integrating reviews from other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, Yopto users have reported a 30% – 120% in conversion rate!
You can also increase your brand’s credibility by collecting and showcasing user-generated content from Instagram. Yopto’s AI will automatically ask for permissions before displaying customers’ Instagram photos on your website. Does running an online business get simpler than this?
Shipping is the last step of closing a successful online sale. You don’t want to slap a huge shipping rate on your customers but you also want to avoid losing profits over miscalculated shipping costs.
ShipperHQ provides a sophisticated rate calculation engine that allows you to take full control over your shipping options. You can take advantage of multiple carriers and customize your shipping rates based on geographic zones, product weight, and price. It’s easy to set up your own rules of surcharging or discounting your shipping rates, or offer free shipping over a promotional period.
Ctrl+Z is one of the best things ever happened in the history of computers. Rewind is an app to do exactly that, but for your online business.
Once you’ve installed Rewind, you only need one click to back up your store data, including product details, customer information, order history, and more.
