The 2017 Shopify Commerce Awards — Apps and Development Honorable Mentions

The Shopify Commerce Awards is our competition celebrating the incredible work that the partner ecosystem does for merchants around the world. This past year, we recognized four developers for the excellent work they had done in building product extensions with our tools and resources.

However, with all the amazing and inspiring work we reviewed, we couldn’t resist designating honorable mentions, and showing off more of the incredible projects our partners have completed.

Below are our four honorable mentions, one for each award in the Apps and Development category.

While it’s easy to think of push notifications as an annoyance, the PushOwl app generates helpful mobile push notifications that provide value such as helping buyers not miss out on sales, and helping merchants get the word out that items are back in stock or still sitting in-cart waiting to be purchased.  

Behind the key functions of this useful and creative app, is the Marketing Events API.
