Best Shopify Apps – Pandectes

Alternatives for 103 apps that are no longer available on Shopify in 2021

Alternatives for 103 apps that are no longer available on Shopify in 2021

Shopify is committed to keeping the Shopify App Store a reliable and trustworthy marketplace, and ensuring that merchants can feel confident in the apps they use. Decisions to terminate app partnerships are carefully considered and made when they are confident that the apps cannot meet their standards for quality and merchant experience, or are not able to comply with the policies in place for maintaining merchant experience, trust, and reliability. This is something that Shopify tries to work on lately because from our experience there were some bad examples on the store.

After their review process and without giving to public specific reasons leading to the termination of these apps, they announced on April 16, 2021 that these apps were terminated for violations of their Acceptable Use Policy and their Partner Program Agreement. So these Shopify apps will be removed from Shopify store on June 16th, 2021.

The important part is what merchants can do to replace these apps and what are the best alternatives for them. Luckily Shopify reviewed the store and created a post and listed there the apps that are alternative suggestions of the apps they plan to remove.

Uninstalling Apps

For stores that still has these apps and will not uninstall them manually, Shopify team will be automatically uninstalling the apps on June 16th, 2021. The best way is to uninstall them manually in order to have the control and at the same time replace them with one of the selected alternatives to avoid interruption by following the instructions below. 

You can remove an app from your store from the Apps section of your Shopify admin:

  1. In your Shopify admin, go to Apps.
  2. Locate the app you want to uninstall, then click the word “Remove” next to the app:
  3. Click Delete.

Uninstalling Apps from Mobile

  1. From the Shopify app, tap Store, and then tap Apps.
  2. On iOS, swipe an app left to show a Remove button beside it. On an Android device, tap the  button beside the name of the app.
  3. Tap Remove.
  4. If you’re sure that you want to remove the app, then tap Delete to confirm.

Support

If you have any questions or need help determining which replacement app is best for your business, you can reach out to our 24/7 support team.

App Store Quality

When you use Shopify apps to help run your business, you’re trusting them with your store’s performance and, in some cases, data. For this reason, Shopify has high expectations that apps are safe, reliable, and maintain high levels of quality.

During April 2021 they removed over 1.5 percent of apps from the Shopify App Store because they were not meeting our standards of trust and integrity.

One of the top priorities of Shopify is store speed.

Keeping your store fast

The speed of your online store is important: it impacts your conversion rate, search engine ranking, and customer experience. Keeping your store fast is top of mind, and that focus carries over to our apps, too.

Shopify is always working with external developers to make sure adding apps to your store won’t slow you down, or create a clunky experience for you or your customers. Shopify regularly run audits on how apps affect store performance. If it doesn’t look good, Shopify helps the developer correct the issue. In some cases, Shopify temporarily removes apps from the Shopify App Store until the developer can adequately fix the problem.

Store speed is top of mind for you, for Shopify, and for the app developers. Adding apps should only ever improve your business, not slow it down.

You can learn more here about the steps that Shopify take to ensure that you can depend on apps from the Shopify App Store. It is their commitment to app quality in the Shopify App Store.
