Notes

Back to top
  1. An initial Shopify App Store analysis for our internal needs happened over 1 year ago. We are preparing interesting timebased charts. Stay tuned!
  2. In 2017 Shopify stated "average app revenue is $2,000 monthly per app" on https://www.shopify.com/partners. Based on this average number we calculate the total monthly revenue of all Shopify applications in the Shopify App Store.
  3. Estimated monthly revenue per Shopify app developer is a sum of all developer's Shopify apps revenue. However we count only recurring charges, we don't count one-time charges.
    We use our own formula © to calculate a Shopify app revenue:
    (price from + price to)/2 * count of reviews * installs to reviews rate * (1 - Shopify commission).
      Where:
    • price from, price to, count of reviews are unique per Shopify app.
    • installs to reviews rate is general and equals to 2.9. So there are 290 installs per 100 reviews on average. This number is calculated to fit the Shopify apps total monthly revenue. 2
    • Shopify commission is 20%.
