It’s a difficult, error-prone process to correctly install Convert on Shopify stores. Revenue tracking in particular is hard to set up reliably. And even after installation, there’s a steep learning curve to running site-wide experiments that target specific Shopify templates (e.g. running an A/B test on all product pages.)
Our Convert custom app automates the installation process. It is, by far, the easiest way for Shopify stores to get started on Convert, and there is almost no learning curve.
Additionally this app allows you to track revenue on all Shopify plans, not just Plus plans (which have custom checkout domains).
Do I need a particular plan or contract with the partner to use the integration?
You will need a Shopify store, the app is 100% free.
Do I need to have the partner’s technology installed already?
Yes, you will only need this app if you have a Shopify store.
Is there any other special configuration needed?
No. The app allows you to install Convert on your Shopify store in 1 click. It’s by far the fastest, easiest way to get Convert up and running on Shopify.
