Since the launch of Nextech’s 3D/AR modeling self-serve app with Shopify, the Company has quickly expanded its reach to small and medium sized ecommerce websites and is currently in the top 2% or in the 98 percentile of apps downloaded in the 3D modeling category (out of 228). Since the app’s launch in late January, there has been an approx 44% increase in app installs month over month. Nextech believes the success of the app thus far is due to its affordable pricing, 3D model making scalability, and high quality 3D models. With a frictionless implementation and being the only end-to-end ecommerce app for 3D/AR the company believes that it has a competitive advantage in the 3D model market.

When ecommerce sites offer immersive AR shopping experiences, it provides customers with the ability to “try before they buy”, resulting in greater buying confidence. Customers are also able to zoom, rotate and spin 3D product models, and see every product detail from every angle, leading to customers that are more engaged and better informed. This not only benefits the customer, but also provides immense benefits to ecommerce businesses: Shopify data shows that 3D AR can increase conversions up to 94% while reducing returns.
The app provides self-serve access to Nextech’s proprietary AI-powered solution for 3D/AR Ecommerce to all businesses who use Shopify to power their ecommerce business. The app makes the adoption of 3D/AR extremely easy, simple and cheap for Shopify merchants as they can subscribe for different plans which suit their needs and manage the app themselves from their merchant Shopify admin.
For a limited time, Nextech AR is offering a 30 day free trial for its Starter and Basic subscription plans. Both plans include 3D model creation, 3D model hosting, integration support, and monthly or annual billing options.
