16 Top-Rated Customer Service Apps for Shopify Stores


Think about the last time you received great customer service. The experience probably formed much of your impression of the company as a whole. Along with the product or service you purchased, how you were treated during the transaction and communication probably impacted your decision to purchase from that company again.


Customer service matters— just ask our gurus.


As a small business owner, customer service is doubly important. New businesses that haven’t built up wide brand recognition or trust rely on each and every customer interaction to generate reviews and referrals.


You’re already managing every aspect of your business, from product photography to social marketing to packing and shipping. Devoting time to personally connect with your customers can be a challenge. In the Shopify App Store, however, there are more than 90 apps dedicated to simplifying and automating your customer interactions.


These apps integrate with your Shopify store to enable live chat, help gather feedback, and reward and delight your customers. We’ve listed pricing options (many are free to try), and links to live Shopify stores using the apps.
