POWR Got a Face Lift!
Brighter colors and running at full POWR, you may have noticed that our little r has grown up. We are committed to bringing versatile, seamless, and empowering tools to small businesses, and when we took a look at who we were, we felt it was time to update our look too! POWR’s suite of apps will continue to grow with you and provide industry-leading tools that you know and love.
We’ve Launched an Innovative New App in Shopify!
Loot Box is a new POWR app that brings the fun of online gaming into the shopping experience on your site! It works by offering your visitors the chance to win a randomized high-value prize once they purchase and redeem the Loot Box with their order. More info here.
High-Level Benefits of Loot Box:
- Incentivize purchases and increase cart value with a mystery item at checkout.
- Select your Loot Box products from your Shopify products and set the probability for each product to win.
- Display the regular retail price of the items in your Loot Box so that the perceived value gives customers the experience of winning more than they paid.
- Optimize your inventory by adding items you need to sell or use less popular items to make more room for new collections.
- Build relationships with suppliers by offering to use only their products in available Loot Boxes.
P.S. This is free forever if you install today!
Payments on Forms are More Seamless Than Ever
We’ve made some serious improvements to what your customers experience when making a payment through the POWR Form on your site.
In-app Checkout Screen: Customers will stay on your site when they checkout, keeping them on your site when completing a payment. They will see a success screen after paying so that they know their purchase was successful and can continue to browse to their liking after.
Improvements for Subscription Trials: We can now offer any price and length for a trial and then charge your subscription price. Giving you the options to have a shorter trial period than a monthly or yearly subscription.
PayPal Smart Buttons for all One Time Purchases and Donations: All customers will see Smart Buttons for their PayPal checkout experience. This means US customers will have access to all PayPal options (including PayPal credit which still pays you immediately while giving your customer some flexibility) and other localized payment features for customers outside of the US. You can get more information on the specifics here.

Get Ready for the Most Prominent Online Holiday Season Ever!
We know what you’re thinking: It’s only October, we cannot be talking about the holidays already. However, we would be remiss to not share with you what shoppers have already shared. 66% have said they are going to shop small and 47% have said they plan to buy online or use curbside pickup services this year.
Be sure to catch the attention of your visitors and increase cart value using POWR’s Popup, Lootbox (for Shopify), Countdown Timer, and more as they shop your site.
POWR has something cooking for this season too! We’re currently working with other POWR Partners for deals we plan to give out before the biggest shopping season weekend is upon us. Be on the lookout for that in the next few weeks in your POWR Dashboard!
We are excited to finish this year strong together. We have all faced challenges and together we are here, moving forward and continuing to build. To us, you’re a hero.
