VICTORIA, British Columbia, Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pixel Union, a Canada-based digital experience design agency, today announced the release of Pixelpop, a Shopify app that allows online merchants to easily create and manage an assortment of popups, promos and banners designed to increase engagement and sales while complementing the look and feel of their online store.
Pixelpop's range of popup types lets merchants make announcements, promote pages and collections, advertise coupon offers, capture email signups, and more. The app's full-screen editor includes a live preview that lets merchants see how popups will look on mobile, tablet and desktop. Pixelpop also includes a selection of popup themes designed and developed by Pixel Union, whose premium Shopify themes power more than 15,000 online stores.
"As an agency that specializes in ecommerce, we've worked closely with the thousands of merchants who use our Shopify themes to build and grow their online businesses, and we've witnessed the challenge they face to create simple popups that fit their storefronts," said Ben Moore, CEO of Pixel Union. "We designed Pixelpop in a way that makes it easy for any merchant to create beautiful interactions that engage their customers, drive conversions, and look great on any device."
Pixelpop is the first Shopify app released by Pixel Union, a Shopify Plus partner that has worked closely with the platform since 2011. Pixelpop is currently available on a 14-day unlimited free trial to any Shopify merchant who signs up through the Shopify App Store.
"We look forward to iterating on Pixelpop in the coming weeks and months, and we'll be listening closely to all the feedback we get," said Moore. "We're also looking forward to building more apps for our ecommerce clients to help them grow their businesses and increase their sales."
