#4 Langify by Johannes Hodde. Give the global community access to your storefront.
Do you sell internationally? Customers from multiple countries are searching for the products that you probably have. So why leave them behind? A multilingual storefront makes shopping more friendly and gives you loyal customers.

Langify automatically detects visitor's geographical location and creates a redirect to a mirror page translated into another language. The application allows you to assign multiple domains to your languages. You can have your Spanish content available at es.myshop.com or myshop.es. At the same time, if the visitor appeared to prefer another language, they can switch to another one.

SEO will also be translated for the mirror page. The developer declares that the translation of the page will not affect the theme and the store will look fine on any device.

#5 Wishlist Plus by Swym Corporation. Allow your customers to save favourite products and sell more.
Sometimes you find exactly the products you want but don't have time or money to complete a purchase. We all have been there. Letting your customers save the items they liked encourages them to spend more in your store. As a result, you can raise conversion by 20-30%.

Wishlist Plus app not only adds wishlist functionality to your store. It turns wishlists to an advanced automated marketing tool.

Here what Wishlist Plus allows you to do:

  • Let your customers share their wishlists through social media and email.
  • Show product popularity depending on adding products to wishlists.
  • Inform your customers about in-stock statuses of the favoured items.
  • Give site visitors an opportunity to use wishlists without login.
  • Launch personalized email campaigns (Wishlist Plus is integrated with best email providers and many other useful apps).

You can start with just adding basic wishlists to your store. This already will make the difference.
#6 Smart Search & Instant Search by Searchanise. Let the customers find exactly what they want or offer relevant variants.
Google is investing billions into its search functionality, so why don't you do the same and spend a couple of bucks to provide your customers with a convenient on-site search tool?

Smart Search & Instant Search replaces the default Shopify search. After indexation of your inventory, the search offers visitors products as they start typing in the search box. Even if they mistype, the app will offer relevant variants from the collection, product or even the content pages. The first suggestion springs up right from the first letter the same second you start typing. If no matches were found, the tool will suggest something close to what you were searching for. So your customers will never get stuck on a "nothing was found" page.

Moreover, it's far from being only a smart search tool now. Searchanise covers all the navigation through your store with smart filters for search results and collections, upselling and cross-selling blocks like Customers also bought and advanced promo functionality like product merchandising and product labels.

Another great thing is that Smart Search & Instant Search is integrated with all the above apps and much more than these.
