How to find the best apps
Look for apps that are Built for Shopify

We get it. Knowing which app is best for your business isn’t always easy. That’s where Built for Shopify (BFS) comes in.

As you explore the Shopify App Store, keep your eyes peeled for apps with the BFS badge. These are the apps that have cleared Shopify’s highest quality bar. And you’ll find them in every category—from marketing tools to shipping solutions. To be recognized as Built for Shopify, an app has to score top marks across four key criteria:

  • Trustworthy Developers of BFS apps treat data with care. The apps also uninstall cleanly, meaning there’s no need to remove any leftover code.
  • Fast BFS apps don’t slow down storefronts, which means customers enjoy a smooth shopping experience whenever they visit your store.
  • Easy to use All BFS apps are well designed and intuitive to use. They’re also accessible, adaptive, and integrated right into your Shopify admin.
  • Useful Shopify measures usefulness by looking at install rates, review ratings, and a proven history of helping businesses succeed.
