Of course not. There’s always room for improvements, and that’s where the Shopify Plugins comes in.
As an eCommerce platform, Shopify recognizes the fact that sometimes a view from the outside might reveal problems or solutions that they did not notice. Which is why they came up with a feature called the Shopify App Store.
