Want to know what’s great about Shopify? It’s a community of entrepreneurs trying to make commerce better, together.
If something is missing from the core feature set, there’s a good chance an app developer has already built the solution and published it on our App Store. If not, there’s a great chance that you can find an app developer who’s willing to help.
Store owners, I’d like to introduce you to our developer community. This discussion board is where you can engage with the community to find solutions to your problems. Here you can describe your problem (or ideal solution) and see if an app already exists. If nothing exists, you can work with a developer to come up with a solution together.
Developers, this is your opportunity to connect with store owners and find out what they want built. Ask questions, gather feedback, and work together to create solutions. Have you already built a solution? Feel free to share a link to your App Store listing.
By working together, store owners and developers can transform the future of commerce. I can’t wait to see the apps that result from this collaboration.
Happy problem solving!

You may have noticed some changes to the ordering of apps in our category pages and app search results in the Shopify App Store. We’ve been in the process of rolling out ongoing improvements to our algorithms that will help merchants easily find high quality apps that best fit their business.
It is important to note that these changes apply to both your existing app listing and the enhanced app store listings, which need to be submitted by December 3rd (you should have received an email in October about this update).
Two important factors that affect app rankings in user search:
App listing page
You should ensure that important keywords consistently appear and are naturally placed in your app listing. These keywords should logically flow with the content of the sentence or paragraph. Keyword stuffing and any misleading or irrelevant content should be avoided.
Overall app quality
We proactively reward high quality apps (e.g. unique functionality, well designed, good support) that align with our quality standards and success guidelines. Shopify ensures a consistent, high quality merchant experience across the platform - we aim to empower app developers to apply the same standards that Shopify adheres to.
We’re continuously optimizing our algorithms to provide the best experience for both app developers and the merchants who use these apps.
