Shop app features
Online order tracking
When a customer uses Gmail, Shop automatically locates emails with tracking numbers to identify orders to track. Customers using another kind of email address can add tracking numbers manually.
When Shop is tracking an order, sometimes it doesn't have enough information to display an exact location for the delivery. The delivery status is still accurate.
Automatic order sync
Shop automatically syncs with Shopify to show all of the orders that a customer has placed within Shopify stores.
When a customer starts an order but doesn't complete it, an abandoned checkout notification might also appear in Shop. The notification prompts the customer to return to your store to complete the order.
Customers can use Shop to follow and view store profiles. After an order is added to Shop, the related store's profile displays in the Shops tab of the Shop app.
When a customer follows a Shopify store in the Shop app, they can view product recommendations based on the store's trending products. Trending products are generated in Shopify based on sales data for the store.
The store's profile includes the store's logo, name, and description. You can customize the following details in the Shop profile for your store:
- You can change your store logo by adding a logo image to your checkout page.
- You can change your store description by editing your online store meta description.
Your customers might use Shop even if you don't enable the option to install the app from your store's order status page. If a customer who uses Shop places an order in your store, then they can follow your store profile, view their order history, and track the delivery of their order.
