I think it is wise to consider the problems you are having as a store owner and then looking for apps that solve that problem rather than just peruse apps that are "good for beginners"-- I recommend carefully considering "do I really need this?" before installing any Shopify app. Even if the app is free, many times it can alter your theme code in ways that are very hard to reverse.

That said, you should consider the "Launching your shop" collection on the Shopify App Store, which is curated by Shopify staff/gurus.

Do you have specific things in mind that you want to accomplish?

It’s hard to suggest apps if you have no specific problem in mind.

To browse around I use the app marketplace to find featured and trending apps.

Hello and welcome to Shopify!

Some apps that you can check out now or as you go are:

HelpCenter App
HelpCenter offers three features that you can use to boost your customer support. First, you can easily create and manage an informative FAQ page that looks slick - you have collapsible sections, search options and much more. Secondly, you can set up a Helpdesk Ticketing System to manage all your incoming inquiries regardless of the channel they come from - email, Facebook Messenger, and a live chat can all be synced. And last, an integratable Live Chat to provide real-time support for your customers.

Trackr. An order tracking app that you can add right on your store where your customers can find information on their shipment. Trackr works with more than 900 carriers so you can be reassured that the necessary information is always available. To boost customer experience even further, there’s also an option to opt-in to receive email notifications about order status updates.

VertexSMS. An SMS marketing app to strengthen relationships with customers. SMS is permission-based, meaning you will be targeting people who have already said they wish to hear from you.

Hope you’ll find something from this list that can help you get started!

The most important thing for Newbies are two factors: 

1. a simple application and a very simple design,

2. A good support in the case of incompatibility


To boost sales and promotions, "Product Bundling" is one of the simplest and most used strategies.

By the way, don't worry about our support. We are new here and every shop matters. So we'll do our best.


Thank you
