With Fast Simon on the Shopify Plus Certified App Program, Shopify Plus merchants can continue to access Fast Simon’s AI-based merchandising, search, and personalization suite.

Ecommerce sales are at an all-time high as the pandemic accelerated years of online growth in mere months. Online spending was reportedly up $900B in 2020—the highest annual U.S. eCommerce growth in at least two decades. Online merchants have an exceptional opportunity to capture record volume as brick-and-mortar closures reach an unprecedented high. But to stand out in a sea of online stores, merchants must build a tech stack to support this climate, including premium features that drive AI-powered merchandising, search, and personalization based on shopper behavior, store inventory, data, and visual signals.

“The eCommerce industry has reached a watershed moment, and merchants have an opportunity to capitalize on previously nonexistent revenue. But that opportunity is tenuous and must be strategically managed,” said Zohar Gilad, CEO at Fast Simon. “The Shopify Plus partner ecosystem unlocks Fast Simon’s ability to connect our exclusive offerings with the merchants that require premium support, enabling them to reduce complexity while scaling their business to reach a new level of success.”

Shopify Plus facilitates access to Fast Simon’s shopping optimization suite to drive increased conversion rates and average order value (AOV) for merchants, and a differentiated shopper experience.

“We are excited to be celebrating the one-year anniversary of the Shopify Plus Certified App Program,” said Fatima Yusuf, director of partnerships, Shopify. “Fast Simon has demonstrated a high level of product quality, service, performance, privacy, and support in search, content, and visual merchandising, and plays a critical role in the growth and success of Shopify Plus merchants globally. We’re looking forward to another big year ahead.”
