What is Varinode Ads?

Varinode Ads is a free Ad exchange catered specifically towards the eCommerce vertical. We understand that not all traffic is the same, and that there are certain types of traffic that will do better in converting into sales. We make it easy to get your products/services in front of consumers who are interested, and most importantly, already in the mindset to shop.

How is the traffic better?

We place ads of your products/services for display on other similarly themed online stores. This means that consumers who click-through on your product/service ad, are already in the mode to shop. As a result, the quality of the traffic is much higher than that obtained through ads you run through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social network, where consumers are browsing general content.

How is this service cost-effective?

This service primarily runs as an exchange. Your products/services will be displayed on other online stores. In exchange, you must display products/services from other stores.
Every time a consumer clicks on an ad displayed on your store, you will receive credits to have your ads displayed on other stores.

Are there requirements to use this service?
Yes, you must operate an online store that is PCI Compliant, and SSL secured. As a Shopify merchant, you already satisfy these conditions. Additionally, all ads run through this service, must be for a shoppable product/service. With a network consisting only of online stores, where every relevant ad displayed is shoppable, we can ensure the quality of the traffic can remain at a consistently high level.

Ads offering:


  • Instant access to quality traffic.

  • No setup fees, or costs to get started. No credit card required.

  • Manage campaigns and ad creatives with ease.

  • Control max bid and daily budget settings to effectively meet your goals.

  • Import your Shopify products for easy ad creation.

  • Target ads to your audience by location, gender, and category.

  • Real-time publisher & advertiser analytics to measure your progress.

  • Customize the look and feel for the ad units displayed on your store.

  • Freely select the pages/location to display the ad units on your store.

  • Simple installation. If you have any issues, we can do the install for you

If you have little to no marketing budget, or are spending lots on ads with very little return, Varinode Ads is well suited to address your needs. We can help your large, medium or small business grow.

It looks good as an application but specially for us no sales were generated.

Very good concept and easy to use, but it has a long way to go. The success of this app will depend on the number of sites using it, and the number of visitors those sites have- imagine being grouped with sites with hardly any visitors. I'm assuming that most of those installing this app have a low number of visitors, hence the need for this app.

Personally I haven't seen good results YET, but I'm keeping the app anyway and hoping for more users to join the bandwagon.

Rating it 3 stars based on personal experience- for what the app is doing for my site NOW, and not for the app's potential.

Great app to get more exposure while starting. Definitely recommend it to all new stores.

Great except I have over 700 products and it will not let me search for them to place an ad I can only use the few that it shows me. I'd give 5 stars if this was fixed

I recently tested out Ads by Varinode and unfortunately I wasn't over the moon about it at all.

1. Once my added the code to my site to start having ads from similar stores displayed on my website, I noticed that either:
a. products were not populating
b. products that were completely irrelevant to my company were being displayed. I reached out to support and they told me to go broader in the niche selection. However what I found is if you click on one of the links and that site sells an array of products, then the rest of their products start showing on your site even if they are not relevant to your store.

Granted- some products were correct but the negatives out way the pros there.

2. I also noticed that my own ads were being displayed on my website. So if someone clicks on it then I'm charged those credits even though they are already on my site. Not a good feature to me and kind of shady.

I will say the support team was very responsive and that's why I gave them 3 stars. I know this is a new app and I'm assuming there is not a lot of companies that sell baby products using it yet so that's why I was having these issues.

Maybe down the road I'll add it to my site again and test it out. But for now I'm not willing to sacrifice the quality of my brand new site to be an early adopter.

It was easy to install! Havent seen alot of traffic yet but will have to wait and see. I think the more people who install and use it the better traffic will be. So give it a try and lets find out.
