Why you need rewind for your Shopify store

Why you need rewind for your Shopify store

Have you ever considered what happens to the old versions of your Shopify store once you make changes? Most of us assume that it is automatically backed up within Shopify, unfortunately, this is incorrectthe platform is backed up, but not the store itself. This makes it so important that retailers find a method to ensure their Shopify store is continually being backed up, as you don’t want to risk losing your valuable data. Don’t fretthis is where Rewind comes in. 

What is Rewind?

Rewind is a Shopify app that integrates with your store to back it up, automatically. Any changes you make to your website are saved so if anything bad were to happen, the information can always be restored to the last backup. Rewind to a point you want to go back to and recover any lost information.

With the amount of information on a website, it’s far too easy to make a mistake when completing tasks such as updating products, or other information. Such things can be detrimental and avoided before affecting customers, and revenue, with the app Rewind.

Rewind has a huge support team on hand to help should a problem with the app arise, so you are safe in the knowledge that you will be well looked after with them. They focus on protecting your store from disaster, leaving you to focus on your business.

How to setup Rewind on your store

Besides being a lifesaver, Rewind is also really easy to use! It can be set up to automatically update your data at the same time every day, to save you from another task on your to-do list. The restores can be flexible, meaning that you can go back to just the parts of the store that have been affected, rather than reverting back to a place that affects all the work you have done. The aim is to make the process as stress-free as possible, to save you time.

The setup and installation process is just as simple, here’s a breakdown: 

  1. Install the app to your Shopify store.
  2. You are then directed to your Vault Page. Your items will begin to load in here, which means that they are successfully being backed up.
  3. You can then set a time and date for when the backups will take place in the future. 


What is the cost per month of Rewind?

Something nice about Rewind is they offer a 7-day free trial before you have to purchase, this gives you the opportunity to test out the platform before signing up! The first backup can be set up immediately from the point of starting the trial to make the most of this time

From there, the basic package costs just $3 a month. This is ideal for stores that average approximately 20 orders per month and allows daily backups to the store. The next is the ‘Growth’ package which is $9 a month and ideal for 200 orders. The ‘business’ package (ideal for approximately 1000 orders) is $59 per month, and then the ‘Plus’ package is $99 per month for stores with around 2,000 orders a month. The last package is for any business that has above this amount of orders and is $299 per month.


In Conclusion

As we get closer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we would strongly recommend installing Rewind to backup your store as a safety measure in case the worst were to happen. If for nothing else, but for the peace of mind that you can carry on selling without this added potential threat arising.
