Shopify Acquisitions and a Special Offer from Our Friends at Klickly
It's been a good week for the Shopify ecosystem! Earlier this week, Shopify released Ping, its messaging app for merchants. And today, Shopify announced the acquisition of Return Magic, an app that simplifies the return experience for customers and merchants.For those who haven't seen Ping, it's like Messenger for ecommerce -- it connects to your messaging apps so you can manage messages from one place, and it lets you communicate with your employees in one place. Ping also contains Kit, which is like a Siri for ecommerce -- it lets you make changes to your store via text, suggests actions you can take to improve your store.
A big congrats to the Ping and Return Magic teams!
