Kit for Shopify is an app to help Shopify merchants who are extremely busy dealing with the day-to-day operational tasks that seem to pile up as a business grows. Kit is a virtual employee that automates all those tasks that take up merchants’ precious time while making life easier, for example, posting ads or offering suggestions to improve marketing.

How Does Kit for Shopify Work?

Kit for Shopify automates many of your tasks and offers suggestions on what to do next via chat. As a Shopify merchant, all you have to do to make the proposed task happen is answer with “yes” and it will be completed automatically.

The Shopify Kit app is available for free in the app store, and it’s built by Shopify themselves, so you won’t have to worry about integration issues.

It can be customised via its dashboard, and merchants can choose the preferred way of interacting with Kit:

  • Those who use iOS devices can interact with Kit via Shopify Ping.
  • For those who don’t have iOS, they can choose Messenger (from Facebook) or SMS options.

It’s important to note that while Kit is free, you’ll have to pay for any ad spend on the campaigns you run, but it can be a real saving on hiring a third-party to set it up for you.

Note: If you want to change the ad targeting country for Facebook or Instagram ads, you’ll need to contact Kit support directly. 

Benefits of Using the Shopify Kit app

Kit for Shopify can be used to power your whole marketing – you can run Facebook and Instagram ads, discount offers, and email marketing campaigns. Plus, before any of the Kit marketing campaigns go live, you can test all of them and check out the previews.

The Shopify Kit app can even post on social media, keeping followers up to date on new products and best sellers. Plus back end you can find out about items that aren’t selling well so you can highlight those instead.

Merchants can set business goals with the Shopify Kit app, and Kit will take the necessary steps to reach those goals. For example, if you’ve just opened your store and are looking for that first sale, Kit will ask you to set up a budget and then run ads to secure your first customer.

Kit can even help merchants who might be stuck by analysing business data or current trends and presenting business performance reports. It will also come up with proactive suggestions on the next steps that would help.
