#5 JustUno

JustUno is a free app that allows you to add pop-ups to your store. These can be used as a way of advertising a particular promotion, or for gathering customer information. A common use of this that you have probably seen before is a popup to tell users that if they sign up to your newsletter they will receive a unique discount. On submission of their email address, they are then given a discount code that can be used on the store. This is a great way to engage potential new customers.
