Boost Your Online Store Sales with Shopify's New 3D Scanner for iOS

In its ongoing quest to help sellers create incredible online stores, Shopify is harnessing cutting-edge technology to make the process easy and accessible for everyone. Today, Shopify unveils its latest technological marvel, Dynamic 3D Objects, poised to transform the way we shop online.

 Why is Shopify introducing this feature?

Traditional online product displays often rely solely on words and images, which may not effectively showcase the product's key attributes. Critical details like texture, size, or the true appearance of the product can easily be overlooked. Shopify is addressing this issue by introducing Dynamic 3D Objects, a feature designed to make online product views more captivating. This innovation aims to provide customers with a sensory shopping experience, akin to holding and inspecting a product in a physical store.

Our objective is to simplify the adoption of this exciting technology for sellers. In just approximately 20 minutes, anyone can create a captivating, lifelike representation of their product using this feature. These engaging views aren't just about making your product visually appealing; they instill confidence in customers, assist them in making purchase decisions, and reduce the likelihood of returns or inquiries. Our ultimate goal is to enhance the online shopping experience for all!

How to Get Started:

  1. Ensure your iPhone is updated to iOS 17.
  2. Open the Shopify app and navigate to the product overview.
  3. Select an existing product or create a new one.
  4. Choose 'Add Media' and select '3D Scanner.'
  5. Follow the user-friendly on-screen instructions to capture a detailed 3D model.
  6. Review and seamlessly integrate the 3D model into your product listing.
