In Shopify, you can either use a free theme or buy a ready-made one. Both of these themes have limitations. But did you know that you can get past these limitations now?

Yes, there are apps that allow you to do drag-and-drop editing on Shopify, similar with what Divi or Elementor can do to WordPress.

But what are the best out there? Today, I will share with you the 9 best Shopify page builders. By the end of this tutorial, you should be ready to choose one of them and customize your Shopify page the way you want!

1. Shogun

Shogun is a page builder that you can integrate with Shopify.  With this app, you can build pages that will help you improve your conversion rate. The page-builder is also optimized, which means that you can build stores that are fast—great for customer experience and SEO.

Here are the features of the Shogun page builder:

  • Drag-and-drop – if you really want to build your store from scratch, you can do it with Shogun. There are 30+ page templates that you can use, all customizable to your heart’s content. You can also create an unlimited number of pages with the tool.
  • Compatibility – it does not matter what Shopify theme you are using; the only thing you need to do is to integrate the plug-in and then you can change everything you want.
  • Unlimited tests – you can create versions of a single page, and then see which page converts more. This is what is called A/B testing, but not for ads. Instead, you do an A/B test on your pages.
  • Data analytics – you can track your store’s performance and monitor important metrics. Examples of these are bounce rates, the number of products added to your cart, the number of sessions you have, and your form submissions.
  • Sync Pages – you can sync product pages that are duplicate, or have them use different languages if you want. You can also combine the same elements or just copy one page to another, so you do not have to re-build the structure of the new page.

Shogun is offered at three price points. The first is $4 per month where you can build up to 25 pages. The next plan costs $99 per month and you can have up to four staff accounts plus 100 pages. The last plan costs $149, and you have a maximum of six staff accounts and 200 pages.

2. PageFly

This one is a page-builder that lets you create landing pages, About Us pages, contact pages, forms, and more. The app is so good that it has rating of 4.9 stars on Shopify with almost 3,000 reviews.

Here are the features of Pagefly:

  • Page builder – you can create any page that you want. If you do not like your product page you can change the way it looks. You can customize your home page, landing page, collection page, and even your blog pages. This tool also allows you to build a separate pricing and FAQ page.
  • Templates – unlike Shogun, this one offers more than 60 templates that you can use if you do not want to start from scratch. You can delete, add, and edit any element of the templates to suit your style and branding.
  • Custom page – apart from creating pages, you can also change how your website looks like on mobile or tablet. You can remove elements to give your site visitor a better experience on these devices.
  • Custom fields – you can create different kinds of forms on your store; you can use this feature to create dropdowns, date, time, contact forms, and more.

3. GemPages

This web builder offers templates and a drag-and-drop editor to help you build your Shopify store. It has a free trial for ten days, after which you have to decide what plan to pay.

Here are the features of the GemPages Shopify page builder:

  • Mini-apps – the tool has apps that you would typically buy on the Shopify app store. Now, you only have to pay for a subscription, and you can use all of these with no additional charges. For example, it has a sales app or urgency app that shows a ticking time right below the Add to Cart button.
  • Responsive – the tool is optimized to allow your store to become mobile-friendly. No matter how you design your website, it will automatically adjust to fit the device that your site visitor is using.

  • Drag-and-drop – the tool gives you access to website elements that you can drag and drop to your panel. After dragging the element, you only have to edit the text and the colors.
  • Edit native pages – since Shopify already has pre-made pages in all its themes, it does not make sense to re-build these pages. Instead, you can edit these pages with the GemPages app and make them look according to your specification.

GemsPages offers a ten-day free trial. The plan with the lowest cost is $15 per month. At this price, you cannot design product pages so your Shopify default will apply.

The next plan is $29 per month, and it allows you to edit your product pages. The last plan costs $59 per month, and you can install the app to three different stores.
