  1. Nice apps, thanks for sharing.
    I’m inlove with a Shopify app called “SimplyTick” now – it’s a reporting solution which helps me collect all my sales data in one place. I found it on their website (http://simplytick.com), but it’s also available to download from Shopify app store. It’s free and easy to use.

  2. Hi, great recommendation!

    I’d recommend FraudLabs Pro to analyze high risk transaction in order to reduce charge backs and to prevent fraud. https://apps.shopify.com/fraudlabs-pro-fraud-prevention
