We are incredibly proud to introduce our very first Shopify app, Bloom.
Bloom allows customers to select their preferred pick-up or delivery date/time for their order. We put a lot of thought into which features and settings we included, to create a simple yet powerful app.
You can choose which days you deliver, block out specific dates, and set min/max cut-off days.
Additionally there is an easy to use time slot generator so you can set up all of your delivery or pick-up time slots in seconds. You can also limit the number of orders available for each time slot.
Bloom also has customisation settings to let you style and theme the date picker to match your online store.
We built Bloom for modern Shopify stores using Online Store 2.0, but with support for vintage themes as well, and full localisation control so you can change every label or message that appears to customers.
Well, we finally made it. Our first Shopify app, Bloom, is now live in the Shopify app store!
We just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has followed along this journey, and we hope you enjoyed seeing our process and progression.
Our goal with this blog series is not only to document our progress, but to hopefully provide useful information to other app developers and store owners; information which we wish we’d known going into this.
Let us know what you think about Bloom, and feel free to install it yourself to see how it turned out (we offer a free trial period)!
If you end up using Bloom in your own online store, please let us know! We’d love to hear from store owners and how they’ve found their experience with our app.
This is the sixth and final part of this series documenting the process of building our first Shopify app. Thank you for following our journey, and stay tuned for our next series as we begin developing app number two!
