Here are some of our other favorite apps worth a view!

Accentuate Custom Fields - While Shopify recently added native metafields to the platform, it still lacks a ton of desirable features. For this reason, we still love Accentuate.

Loop (Return Automation) - It's inevitable that customers will need to return & exchange goods at some point. Thankfully Loop makes it easy to automate this entire process and has a really slick interface making for a pleasant customer experience.

Wishlist Plus (Wishlists) - One of the oldest Shopify apps, but still a favorite. It does what it needs to do and carries a super low price tag.

Recharge (Subscriptions) - A must for anyone hoping to drive recurring revenue through subscription offerings.

Checkout Promotions & Upsells (Post Purchase Upsells) - Post purchase upsells are a quick way to add additional revenue to your orders and gain valuable customer feedback at checkout.
