Shopgate Joins Shopify Plus Technology Partnership Program
Shopgate, providers of a shopping app platform, has joined the Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program to help retailers take advantage of mobile apps.
As part of the Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program, Shopgate will be able to extend its mobile app platform capabilities, including segmented push notifications, digital wallets, barcode and QR code scanners, and other features based on the native capabilities of a mobile device, to Shopify Plus merchants.
"In 2017, over 66 percent of mobile revenue was earned through an app and mobile apps on average provide a three times higher conversion rate over a mobile website. We are elated to join the Shopify Plus Technology Partner network and extend these game-changing results to Shopify Plus merchants," said Marc Biel, CEO of Shopgate, in a statement. "This exciting program allows us to offer our leading mobile commerce solution to Shopify Plus merchants so they can create their own remarkable mobile shopping experiences catered to their customers' unique needs."
With Shopgate's offering, Shopify Plus merchants can tap into the highly-valuable most loyal customer segment and proactively engage on their devices.
Additionally, Shopify Plus merchants will be able to modify and optimize their apps using Shopgat's admin portal. Shopify merchants' customers can find products with Spotlight search integration and AdScanner, which unites merchants' marketing collateral with their mobile apps using smart image scanning technology. These features can be added to Shopgate's other tools, like Facebook login, daily deal and coupons features, and one-touch payments via Apple Pay.
What's more, with Shopgate's advanced analytics tools, a built-in AppsFlyer integration, and the Facebook Analytics plug-in, Shopify Plus merchants can gain detailed insights into customer behavior and app performance.
"We are thrilled to welcome Shopgate to the Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program," said Jamie Sutton, head of technology partnerships at Shopify Plus, in a statement. "This program recognizes the best-in-class solutions that, together with Shopify Plus, further enables the rapid growth and innovation possibilities of today's modern merchant. Bringing Shopgate on board recognizes the important role this technology plays in ensuring customer engagement and driving growth in ecommerce businesses."
