Both bundling and subscription have proven to drastically increase Average Order Value (AOV). There are a number of apps out there that provide these features, but for someone starting out, their price point could be out of budget.

Note, that you currently you have to signup for early access to get Subscription app. Checkout Editions 2023 to learn more about these features.
Shopify Collective is a new tool that allows you to sell a suppliers product directly on your site. It’s like a new level of drop shipping. We used this app in Beta last year and it’s now live so we are excited to see how brands and suppliers leverage it to deliver more value to customers.
Here is how Shopify described it: “Discover quality products to sell from top Shopify brands who will ship directly to your customers. Connect with brands, add their products to your store in minutes, and earn margin on what you sell… Grow your business without the up-front cost of additional inventory and warehousing.” Checkout Editions 2023 to learn more about this feature.
Below are some other updates on Shopify’s backend that will deliver a better user experience.
Shopify has a feature within the product that will help you create product descriptions. We’ve tried it ourselves and it’s pretty neat. It’s a nice way to quickly add content to your products. Now Shopify is going further with utilizing AI to help merchants. This is what they had to say: “Imagine you had a deeply competent, incredibly intelligent, passionate, and non-judgmental advisor—available to you whenever you need them.” This AI chatbox can help you make admin updates, recommend an app, and much more.
