This makes Shopify and Yotpo a match made in SKU heaven. Shopify has invested $30 million investment into Yotpo makes that clear. According to The Times of Israel:

Shopify merchants will be able to tap into “five cutting-edge products” developed by Yotpo, said [CEO Tomer] Tagrin, including SMS marketing, loyalty and referrals programs, reviews and ratings features, and a tool that displays customer photos and videos across the buyer journey.
