The overall rating reflects the current state of the app. It accounts for all app reviews but prioritizes the most recent ones.
The buy button is great. I starting implementing it about 2-3 weeks ago am now starting to see sales from it. I would love to see the blog article where the conversion came from as I’m not able to see this in the conversion details. That’s the reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
Thank you for writing your review and sharing your feedback here, and I'm glad to hear that you've enjoyed using the Buy Button app and are seeing sales come in! In terms of conversion details, I would recommend using a third-party analytics program such as Google Analytics to get a better handle on your conversion rate. The internal sales reports within Shopify will give you a breakdown of where your sales have come from (e.g. online store vs. Buy Button). -Victor, Shopify Support
Shopify is a dream to use. Very user friendly and fast. Great options to choose from with shipping etc. Just an overall positive experience with them. So glad I investigated and chose them.
Overall good app. Some things still need to be improved, for example:
when you "Add to Cart" via the Buy Button, you only see the product in you "Buy Button Cart". The product will not be added to your normal shopify Cart.
Hey, there! I can definitely see how that would be useful; I'll be sure to pass this on to our developers as a feature request for you. In the meantime, you could do this by manually coding links and buttons to your product pages, however this would negate the intended use of adding products to the cart from external content. Thank you for the feedback! - Brie, Shopify Support
Worked beautifully for a sale where the customer knew exactly what he wanted. Does not encourage them to continue shopping.
Radical Sounds Latin America
It is a very nice solution for people who already have a website and want an easy system to deal with sales. Also, very affordable and super easy to integrate. I use it with WordPress, and I like the interface a lot. It would be nice if, in the future, it becomes compatible with the plugin "WPBakery Page Builder," which I use to build my WordPress. I needed to create a new page without using my building plugin so it could work.

I used this app to add a ecommerce to my clients Webflow site. We originally were using Webflow ecommerce but were limited on payment options (stripe only). With my client having CBD products, Stripe and Paypal were not an option so I did some research and thankfully Spotify allowed Authorize.net to process payments. Syncing products from Shopify into Webflow did have some ups and downs but I want to share some of the issues that could use some refining that would have been beneficial: 1) Ability to mass-export Product ID numbers without using a 3rd-party app.
2) Having different cart themes and more customization without needing to work in liquid code. Ex: Removing the cart icon on checkout took sometime to figure out. (Cart links to "Online Store" cart but we don't have that with only a buy button)
3) Ability to have a cart page as well as a checkout page, all without having to buy the online store. If I could have a url that I could have linked to the Webflow cart icon that would've been very helpful. 4) Ability to have different cart designs/locations. This goes with #3 but to have the option to show the hovering cart Shopify icon, or have a url to paste that goes to a cart page would be a useful option. That's all I got! Thanks for the great product. - Ryan
Embedding products directly onto my website via the Buy Button was super easy and made selling incredibly simple.
The Goddess Temple Cacao
I use Kajabi so adding the BUY BUTTON has been great for creating a cart for my Ceremonial Cacao products. I'm so glad I found this offer with SHOPIFY which seems to be working nicely with my existing website on Kajabi, instead of having to recreate the website on Shopify. I at first found it a little confusing to see on the Shopify website exactly what integrations are available with this Shopify LITE (BUY BUTTON) compared to the other 3 Shopify Online store options but then someone confirmed for me and I'm so grateful. I would suggest adding this LITE/BUY BUTTON onto the main chart on the website so that it's super clear. Thanks for everything!
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, and I'm glad to hear that you've been finding the Buy Button useful. I also appreciate your feedback about our pricing page not including the Lite plan and I'll be sharing this information with our internal team; it would be great to see the Lite plan reflected on our pricing page. I'd love to address each of your questions about the Lite plan features, so I'll be following up with you directly via email shortly. I look forward to your response! - Julie, Shopify Support
Hi there, I am not sure what exactly this is useful for on my website. I intalled the app but there is not explanation what it is useful for.
Do I need it if I already sell my products?
Hi, there! In brief, the Buy Button is a shortcut for buying one of your products, typically placed on an external website. They make purchasing products easier for your customers that are coming from other sites, and they can also be used to create quick checkout links that you can then share with customers through an email campaign, direct message, or social media post. You can read more about it here: https://bit.ly/3fEvRmo. Feel free to reach out to support any time with more questions about it. - Brie, Shopify Support
For the most part, buy button works OK when you already have your own web site. Three things really need improvement, though.
1 - A buyer can see if an item is in stock before adding to the cart (that's good), but the actual quantity on hand is hidden. The buyer does not know if they ordered more than what's available until checkout.
2 - Once in checkout, a buyer cannot edit the cart contents, and cannot easily return to the website to continue shopping. If they wanted six red party hats but only three are available, they have to abandon their cart and start over. If the same thing happens again with orange party hats, they're likely to look for another store.
3 - When you pause your store (temporarily close), if someone clicks an add-to-cart button they get an error message thrown at them, "Oops, something went wrong. Contact the store owner." or words to that effect. It would be much better to let the owner create a "paused store message" that would be displayed rather than a misleading error message. Thanks for asking,
Thanks so much for this feedback! I can definitely see how these changes could be beneficial, and I'll be sure to pass those requests on to the relevant team. Cheers. - Brie, Shopify Support
