Shopify Dispatch Issue #433 - Organic traffic decrease, Shop channel pre-installed

Issue #433 - January 10th, 2024

Traffic tanked, now what?

Ilana Davis shares how to analyze an organic traffic decrease and what you can do to fix it.

Shop channel now pre-installed for new merchants

Shopify is now automatically installing the Shop channel app for new merchants.

I'd take this as another clear signal Shopify is pushing people into their marketplace. Soon you need to either:

  1. figure out how to optimize and standout there or
  2. do something so valuable on your storefront that shoppers would rather be there

Start noticing seasonal spikes in customer behavior

Cohort reports let you detect seasonal spikes as well as long-term retention cycles. Repeat Customer Insights can automatically create cohorts for your Shopify store, going back to your very first order.
