Hi @JessiH ,
You can also try Sticky Tools App - it's a FREE App and contains the most popular 20 apps installed from Shopify App Store.
Instead of installing various apps to improve customer experience, you can just install Sticky Tools and you will have all apps in one place
I would recommend some must-have app categories:
- Product reviews like Ali reviews or Opinew - able to export, import reviews from dropshipping sites, create trust and social proof
- Page builder like PageFly to custom your product page that can convert more sales than the original theme pages
- Of course product sourcing app like CJdropshipping or Topdser
- Upsell cross sell to boost sales with Wiser Product recommendations

It's actually a broad subject. But the answer depends on your niche, audiences, and some other factors. I have some niche-specific dropship stores.. So I can suggest a few.
Personally, These are the must-have apps for my dropship stores - Trytada, OptinMonster, TrustPulse, Plugin SEO. My favorite one is Trytada. https://apps.shopify.com/tada-pop-ups-game-emails It's almost an updated version of woohoo. It's a gamified email popup app that asks the shopper to play a game to ‘win’ bigger discounts. Tada’s engaging pop-ups will allow you to collect more email addresses.
