Shopping Upsell Shopify

Upselling is how retailers persuade customers to spend more money on products or services that complement the primary product the customer is already buying. To make upselling simpler and more effective, there are many Shopify upsell apps that can help personalize recommendations and display them throughout your store. This article covers the best Upselling Apps from Shopify.

Examples of upselling and cross-selling

When you buy a laptop online, and the online store suggests decals for that model, a cover and a mouse, that’s cross-selling. Upselling is persuading the customer to upgrade their product, say why not more RAM on the same configuration, or buy a more expensive version of it. Starbucks needs the latest MacBook Pro model on the table, you know…

In a nutshell, upselling is the practice of encouraging customers to purchase a comparable higher-end product than the one in question, while crossselling invites customers to buy related or complementary items. Though often used interchangeably, both offer distinct benefits and can be effective in tandem.

So what are the best upsell Shopify products, what’s the pricing on them, how many installs do they have and what ratings?
