What is Shop?

Shop is Shopify's dedicated mobile shopping app, which boasts a user base of over 100 million buyers. It's designed specifically to drive traffic to your store, helping to boost your sales.

Remember, tagging is your secret sauce! It’s what makes your store pop with those catchy videos. Skip this step, and alas, Sauce can't work its magic to showcase your videos in the Shop store.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Tag Products:Tag your Shopify products in the Sauce library's videos and photos to link them correctly. Once you've tagged these items, or if you already have tagged products in your media library or Instagram, you're set to go.

  3. Publishing your media: Once you give Sauce the necessary Shopify permissions, any tagged photos and videos in your library will automatically publish and update in Shop.

  4. Update Feed: To add new videos, tag them in the Sauce library. Your Shop media will sync automatically.

Tips:

  • Aim to tag at least four videos per product to enhance your customers' shopping experience.

  • Explore new content through your New > UGC (User-Generated Content) tab to find and add media in which you've been tagged. Sort this media by 'Highest Engagement' to identify the most popular posts, which can indicate their quality and performance. Ensure to tag these items with relevant products in your media library.
