Numbers don’t lie.
Shopify owners made $6.3 billion USD in sales between Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2021. This staggering number was achieved despite the supply chain issues and shipping delays triggered by the pandemic.
But now, with the pandemic being nothing more than a bad memory, and all the related issues resolved, this year’s BFCM is predicted to be bigger and better for Shopify store owners.
But, like always, competition galore and things are not going to be easy. You need all the help in the world to attract and convert your visitors into customers. This is where Shopify plugins can help.
Shopify plugins are software add-ons or applications that you can install on your Shopify website to expand the capabilities and functionalities of your online store.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a large business or a small one; even a slight competitive advantage might give you a great head start in the upcoming BFCM season. One such key factor that can help you tremendously in this hyper-connected world is a mobile app.
