Shopify AR In Action

One of the big investment reasons to Shopify is that they are the leading edge of technology and that through their apps a merchant can add rich e-commerce features that would otherwise be unavailable to them.

We have talked about Augmented reality a number of times and Shopify launched that feature very recently. Here are some merchants using AR to sell merchandise.

Go ahead and have some fun on this horrible market day. Will that Instant Pot be big enough for that chicken in your fridge? How about take a picture of yourself next to that hot new Pure Cycles bike. Maybe you’d look better with the black one. Will that desk lamp fit on your desk?

It’s really cool. Press on the little box in the corner of the picture. Move your phone around and it correctly sizes the object and you can move it around your space.

And any company can add this with the click of a button on the Shopify apps platform(for a small fee of course) without the need for a complicated and expensive IT department.



Nice Darth,

I like SHOP as an enabler.

This gave me a better vision of product size than just L,W,H dimensions and comparability (the back pack)…this from my desktop…then I tried your bike with my phone - wow! Spinning the object was cool but detail imagery was great …I could check out the tire treads!

This stuff is especially important as e-commerce grows and mobile grows - now 30%+ purchases from mobile devices.

If you plan on running a successful eCommerce website, or any website, you absolutely must cater to mobile users. and …

79% of smartphone users have made a purchase online using their mobile device in the last 6 months…
