Hi guys

Have any of you ever launched a Shopify App?

I've tried WP plugins in the past but failed. Wondering how Shopify App space is. Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

Haven't launched one but use plenty, do you have a need or problem that you are solving for Shopify customers?

Hi Bearcorp, thanks for your reply.

Didn't identify a need or problem yet.
So far I've joined a bunch of Facebook groups for Shopify shop owners. The groups are active, which is great. I'm also seeing threads about Shopify in this forum/other places. All positive news so far.

The reason I like Shopify is because I'm a developer. This is a space where I could really provide exceptional value.

Have you also tried searching around Shopify forums? Spending some time going through threads there and you might come across some issues store owners are having, and I'm sure there will be people in the Facebook groups complaining about one thing or another! Find that need or problem people are having and get after it, good luck :thumbsup:

I use Shopify and there is one problem I wish there was an app for. When customers order sometimes they buy more than one of my products and Shopify for whatever reason wont easily let you charge shipping for separate products/boxes at checkout.

There is a way to make it work by messing with weight and price options in shipping but it’s a pain. I’ve seen others complain on the Shopify forum. Maybe something to look into. I would pay for that right now.

No. I sold that business so I don’t have a use for it now but I don’t think anyone has solved that problem yet. I would’ve paid for it and still would if I was doing Shopify.
