Is Shopify Really Just an Expensive App Store?

Why Your eCommerce Success Shouldn't Rely on an Arsenal of Expensive Apps

While Shopify may appear as a convenient all-in-one eCommerce solution, the reality paints a different picture. Often, what seems like a unified platform quickly turns into an expensive bazaar of third-party apps.

Percentage Cuts and Flat Fees

Many third-party apps charge a percentage of the sales they influence, ranging from 0.5% to as high as 3% per app. These percentages can quickly add up as your sales volume increases.

Flat Fees

Beyond the percentage-based fees, many apps also impose a flat monthly fee based on usage. These can range from ₹30,000 to ₹3 lacs per month per app.

The Snowballing Effect

As your brand scales, so does your dependency on a multitude of apps for functionalities ranging from pop-up management to referral programs. This results in a snowballing effect where costs stack up at an alarming rate. Brands often find themselves surrendering more than 10-15% of their total revenue to Shopify and third-party apps, effectively capping their growth potential.

No Need for Third-Party Shopify Apps to Grow?

In the labyrinthine landscape of eCommerce, every percentage point in revenue and efficiency counts. Traditional platforms like Shopify force you into a maze of third-party apps, each adding to your cost and complexity. Hypestore, however, offers a suite of advanced, in-built tools designed to amplify your business growth while simplifying your operations.
