This post comes after Why did we develop a small Shopify App? Since 16/12/2016 Our Shopify App – SEO Product Optimizer (SPO) had launched on Shopify App Store.

In hot seasons like Christmas or New Year, we can see 20,000 active users in the month. However there are very few users sending ecards during other time.
