AR (augmented reality) and to a lesser extent, VR (virtual reality) are revolutionizing eCommerce by throwing a metaphorical wrench in the actual experience of shopping online.
While online sellers can offer an excellent selection and competitive prices, all at the tips of a user’s fingers, and with only a few clicks of a button, there are serious roadblocks to shopping online.
One of the biggest impediments to conversions is that you never really know what you’re getting. At best, you can just see it on a screen.
For all of the drawbacks to traditional retail shopping, the product experience is better. You can try on clothing and jewelry, sit in a new sofa, and even sample food before you buy.
It’s not like that in eCommerce – but these top AR and VR apps available on the Shopify App Store are changing that paradigm.
These are some of the best of them – which you can install and configure with the help of an experienced Shopify Plus developer.
AR & 3D Product Viewer
AR & 3D Product Viewer, by LevAR, has a solid 4.4-star review on the Shopify App Store and revolutionizes customer interactions with your products.
It works anywhere – on desktop, mobile, and even on social apps, and features one-click integration compatibility.
It also creates exact-to-scale 3D AR models which can be used to supplement or even replace existing photography.
It increases customer engagement and in some cases can result in substantially higher time on product pages – by up to 5 times.
MirrAR Virtual Try On by StyleDotMe is another game changer in the realm of AR and VR apps.
This one, which has a solid 5-star review in the Shopify App Store, allows users to “try on” jewelry in real-time and gives users 100% control of their inventory along with detailed customer reporting.
MirrAR utilizes accurate, markerless hand and face tracking for accurate virtual jewelry try-ons that increase customer engagement and satisfaction and encourage higher sales and lower product return rates.
Camweara Jewelry Try-On
Camweara Jewelry Try-On is another virtual jewelry try-on app that comes with a solid 5-star review from the Shopify App Store. This one supports multiple jewelry categories and allows for both 2D and 3D try-ons.
AR Space Designer
AR Space Designer by Imersian is another Shopify AR app that comes with a solid 5-star review. This one is tops for eCommerce businesses that sell furniture or home goods.
It allows users to place multiple products from a single store into a virtual space to “see” how they look and can create detailed 3D models in mere seconds.
It also allows users to place 3D models not only on the floor but also on tables and shelves, and users can even save 3D models to reference at a later time – supporting the customer journey.
Angle 3D Configurator
Angle 3D Configurator, with 5 stars, is another excellent 3D AR app on the Shopify App Store.
The app simplifies the creation of a 3D model of your products and easily enables you to bind variants to each model, allowing you to showcase different colors and other customization options.
It’s one of the best (and easiest) ways to give your online shoppers a 3D experience without actually visiting a brick-and-mortar location.
