We understand that starting an ecommerce store can be overwhelming and time consuming. But fret not, because there is an extensive number of apps and integrations designed to support your business.
To help you leverage on the right tools for more advanced functions, I’ve compiled a list of 5 must have apps for BigCommerce stores. From shipping to lead generation and email marketing, let’s begin exploring!
Justuno’s sign up bar helps you collect your visitor’s emails. It is a non-intrusive method of growing your mailing lists and boosting sales through email marketing. You can customise your message or offer on the bar and choose to install it on either the header or footer of your store’s website.
2. Boost Sales
Boost Sales app helps online stores increase average order value by upselling & cross-selling to every customer, just like Amazon. When customers add an item to cart, the app will upsell related products that they most likely want to buy.

Beside hand-picking relevant items to recommend for each offer, you can turn on the automated upsell/cross-sell feature so the app can handle the job for you. Using smart recommendation algorithms, it collects customer browsing behaviors and your sales data to suggest personalized products that each customer most likely wants to purchase.
