With access to Criteo’s unique AI and commerce data, Shopify merchants like VRAI have already achieved 300% ROAS
Criteo, the commerce media company, today announced the next phase of its integration with Shopify, a provider of essential internet infrastructure for commerce. For the first time, Criteo and Shopify’s thousands of merchants and clients in the U.S. can access the Criteo App on the Shopify App Store thanks to new self-registration capabilities to unlock self-service set-up via the Criteo Commerce Growth Platform. Now Shopify merchants and marketers can quickly and easily integrate with Criteo’s network to grow their businesses through greater personalization, access to high-intent buyer audiences and increased retention of desired customers.

With insight into nearly one trillion dollars of ecommerce sales, Criteo’s commerce media platform enables growth opportunities by providing Shopify merchants with access to solutions that leverage the world’s largest set of commerce data and industry-leading AI to find people who are ready to buy.
