Tweaking your sales funnel to achieve maximum engagement and benefits can be done by bringing your products to the limelight at various stages of the sales process.

A strategy to make higher sales and return customers that involves showcasing multiple additional options to your customers at the time of checkout or product selection is a commonly used tactic.

This strategy is known as upselling your customers and can be utilized at various sales funnel stages.

Shopify offers several plugins and apps that are designed for this specific purpose.

From highlighting certain products on your store or providing options for choosing items that are frequently bought together, my selection of the top five Shopify upsell apps will boost your sales and increase your earning.
