What do most Shopify analytics solutions cost?

How much you pay generally depends on which features you want, which integrations you need, and how big your store is (in terms of revenue or order volume).

In general, you can expect to pay:

  • $20-50 a month for no frills P&L tracking at relatively low volumes

  • $50-150 a month for more advanced analytics or if you have a medium-sized store

  • Several hundred dollars a month for niche integrations or if you have a large store

What makes Lifetimely different is that we’re the only major Shopify analytics app that doesn’t tie pricing to the size of your store. All three of our plans are under $100/month no matter how much you scale. This makes our pricing both the simplest and most affordable on the market.

Let’s look at some examples of how much you’ll pay in different scenarios:

Example store A
· Average 100 orders a month
· Only want basic P&L tracking

Example store B
· Average 750 orders a month
· Want P&L metrics plus LTV cohort analysis

Example store C
· Average 2000 orders a month
· Want premium features and integrations

Which apps have the integrations I need?

You can expect almost every app to integrate with Facebook/Instagram Ads, Microsoft/Bing Ads, Google Ads, and Google Analytics.

Beyond that, you can refer below to see which apps accommodate which integrations.

Lifetimely: Magento, Pinterest Ads, ReCharge, ShipStation, Snapchat Ads, TikTok Ads

Peel Insights: Klaviyo, Kno Commerce, ReCharge, Slack, TikTok Ads

Glew: Very long list of niche integrations that you can refer to here. Many require a custom-priced plan. Some common ones like Pinterest Ads are lacking.

BeProfit: Aliexpress, Amazon, Outbrain, Pinterest Ads, Snapchat Ads, Taboola, TikTok Ads, Wix, Woo

Omniconvert: Gorgias, Klaviyo, ReCharge, Sendgrid (*but no Microsoft/Bing Ads integration)

Polar Analytics: Criteo, Klaviyo, Pinterest Ads, ReCharge, Snapchat Ads, TikTok ads



Does every app have the same basic P&L metrics and reports?

Every Shopify app pulls the majority of P&L data straight from Shopify. This means that you likely won’t see much variation in the data itself aside for minor differences in names or definitions.

But there’s a major gap between apps in how easy they make it to 1) review your most important metrics and 2) quickly identify potentially concerning trends in your data.

The key thing to look for is customization options. Does the app allow you to build and organize your own dashboards with your choice of metrics and reports? Can you set custom alerts to notify you if a metric drops above or below a defined range? Can you set custom goals and targets?

Lifetimely, Peel Insights, and Glew offer all of the above.‍

BeProfit and Polar Analytics offer very basic customization, essentially only allowing you to decide whether or not to include certain metrics in your home dashboard.

And Omniconvert doesn’t offer any customizations at all - all customers are limited to stock reports.



Do different apps have different Lifetime Value calculations?

Yes. Once you go beyond fundamental P&L metrics and move into more advanced analytics and reports, you’ll start to find major differences between apps.

These differences are most apparent and most critical with Lifetime Value calculations. For LTV figures to hold up to any measure of accuracy, reliability, and actionability, they MUST be calculated using cohort analysis.

Lifetimely, Peel Insights, BeProfit, and Polar Analytics all calculate LTV with cohort analysis. Among these four, Lifetimely offers the most options for much more detailed segmentation and analysis.

On the other hand, both Glew and Omniconvert calculate LTV with extremely simplified equations that are functionally useless. This is a major faux pas for what should be the most insightful and actionable advanced metric in your arsenal, and it should be a major consideration in your choice of software.



What features does Lifetimely have that competitors don’t?

Lifetime Value Report with predictive data

Lifetimely has always had the most sophisticated Lifetime Value calculations and cohort analysis on the market. We’re also the only app that offers month-to-month projections of LTV. These AI-generated projections are incredibly useful for revenue forecasting and financial planning.

Benchmarks against other stores in your category

Another differentiator is our Benchmarks tool, which scores your store’s performance versus your competitors and charts your major metrics on a bell curve of Shopify businesses in your industry. No other app offers a comparable alternative.

Lifetime Value Drivers

Our LTV Drivers report is another unique feature. This report gives you automated insights about the products, tags, and discount codes that are most effective in increasing average LTV. In other words, the report pulls out the data that gives you the most leverage for making customer-centric decisions for your business.

Our focus has always been to ship the features that will have the greatest impact on actionability and decision-making. We also build what our members want! You can see our user-generated product roadmap here: https://lifetimely.upvoty.com/.



What features do competitors have that Lifetimely doesn’t?

Every app’s features depend on its integrations, so the few features that Lifetimely lacks generally relate to the integrations that we haven’t built yet.

For example, BeProfit’s compatibility with Wix and Woo platforms give it more versatility for sellers with a more diverse portfolio of shops, whereas we focus just on Shopify.

And Peel Insights’ integration with Klaviyo gives more nuance to some of their marketing reports, which we hope to match with our own Klaviyo integration launching soon.

Some apps are also more CRM-oriented. Glew has a beautiful CRM that allows you to open up individual customer profiles and analyze an individual customer’s likelihood of churning. This is a great option for sellers who prioritize metrics on the level of the individual.

Of course, no one app will have every feature, and it’s up to you to decide which features are most important to you and which option provides those features for the greatest value.

If Lifetimely is one of the options you’re considering, we hope you give us a shot! You can sign up for a free 14-day trial of any of our plans here.

Lifetimely is definitely one of the top few apps that you need in your store. I can't believe I went years without a profit dashboard before installing it. The customer cohort analysis is essential to determine your most valuable customer types so that you can target more of them. The founder also provided a ton of great advice on our call.

We absolutely love Lifetimely. It is an absolutely essential app for anyone running their own store. Not only does it make it easy to look at the key stats that will drive the success of your business, the customer support is fantastic. We have even had direct advice from the app's founder and it was extremely valuable. If we could give this app 6 stars we would!

This is THE BEST LTV app I've seen on Shopify! Super simple to set up & get incredibly powerful insights instantly (and for a much more reasonable price than other analytics software out there). They're also constantly innovating and building new features to enhance the platform. Highly recommend.
