Lifetimely Alternatives


    What is Lifetimely by AMP?

    Lifetimely by AMP equips D2C brands with tools and reports to track profit, calculate precise lifetime value (LTV) and marketing analytics, and identify patterns in customer purchase behavior.

    Our comprehensive integrations put all of your data under one roof, while our customizable P&L dashboards, shareable email reports, CAC payback tools, and industry-leading cohort analysis will eliminate your spreadsheets and help you make more profitable data-driven business decisions.


    If you’ve found this page, you’re probably either new to the market or wondering if a change in analytics software is right for you.

    Of course, we would love to have you with us. We think that Lifetimely delivers the most useful features at the greatest value, which has made us the leading Shopify app in the industry.

    But different businesses have different needs. And depending on your budget and the features you’re looking for, you might be better off with one of our competitors.

    To help you compare the leading solutions on the market, we’ve broken down the main features and selling points of each app while addressing FAQs of potential subscribers. We’ll take you through these considerations at a high-level first, and then with individual pages that compare Lifetimely with each major alternative.

    What do most Shopify analytics solutions cost?

    How much you pay generally depends on which features you want, which integrations you need, and how big your store is (in terms of revenue or order volume).

    In general, you can expect to pay:

    • $20-50 a month for no frills P&L tracking at relatively low volumes
    • $50-150 a month for more advanced analytics or if you have a medium-sized store
    • Several hundred dollars a month for niche integrations or if you have a large store

    What makes Lifetimely different is that we’re the only major Shopify analytics app that provides all our features on every plan. This makes our pricing both the simplest and most affordable on the market.

    Let’s look at some examples of how much you’ll pay in different scenarios:

    What other apps offer Shopify reporting & analytics?

    You can expect almost every app to integrate with Facebook/Instagram Ads, Microsoft/Bing Ads, Google Ads, and Google Analytics.

    Beyond that, you can refer below to see which apps accommodate which integrations.*

    Lifetimely: Google Sheets, Klaviyo, Magento, Pinterest Ads, ReCharge, ShipBob, ShipStation, Snapchat Ads, TikTok Ads.

    Peel Insights: Klaviyo, Kno Commerce, ReCharge, Slack, TikTok Ads.

    Glew: Very long list of niche integrations that you can refer to here. Many require a custom-priced plan. Some common ones like Pinterest Ads are lacking.

    BeProfit: Aliexpress, Amazon, Outbrain, Pinterest Ads, Snapchat Ads, Taboola, TikTok Ads, Wix, Woo.

    Omniconvert: Gorgias, Klaviyo, ReCharge, Sendgrid (but no Microsoft/Bing Ads integration).

    Polar Analytics: Criteo, Klaviyo, Pinterest Ads, ReCharge, Snapchat Ads, TikTok ads.

    (*Competitor integrations current to summer 2022)

    Peel Insights

    The Peel Insights Essentials plan ($499/month) and includes integrations with Google Ads, Facebook/META, Snapchat, Tiktok, Pinterest and Amazon Ads.

    At $49/month, Lifetimely's Small plan provides a complete P&L along with inventory metrics, order tracking, and integrations with all of your major ad accounts.

    The Peel Insights Accelerate plan (min $899/month) is relatively comparable to Lifetimely features, but starts at 6x the cost.



    Glew has a complicated pricing structure that becomes more expensive as your business grows. But more than any other competitor, Glew tries to sell customized bundles of features at custom prices.

    Glew offers just two plans without custom pricing. One is a free plan that only tracks 20 metrics and has very few features. The other adds a preset bundle of KPIs, reports, and integrations, with pricing ranging from $79/month to $649/month depending on your annual revenue. This plan also requires a minimum 12-month commitment!

    And if you want any features or integrations not included in this bundle? Your only option is to contact Glew, specify the features and integrations you need, and pay a customized price.


    At BeProfit, pricing depends on your number of monthly orders and the features you want included in your plan. There is also a penalty if your monthly orders exceed your plan’s limit.

    Their only plan without a monthly order limit is the Plus plan, which is priced based on gross merchandise value.

    They offer 4 tiers of plans:

    • BeProfit Basic: $25/mo up to 200 monthly orders, with an additional 30 cents per order above that limit. No marketing metrics or LTV cohort analysis.
    • BeProfit Pro: $75/mo up to 600 monthly orders, with an additional 20 cents per order above that limit. No marketing metrics or multistore dashboard.
    • BeProfit Ultimate: $150/mo up to 1200 monthly orders, with an additional 10 cents per order above that limit.
    • BeProfit Plus+: Unlimited orders for $250/month up to $10M GMV, with custom pricing beyond that.

    Polar Analytics

    Polar Analytics only offers one plan for stores with fewer than 10,000 monthly orders. Pricing starts at $400/month, growing up to $1000/month depending on order volume.

    (Beyond 10,000 monthly orders, your only option is a custom-priced plan.)

    On the other hand, Lifetimely’s offers three plans (including a free plan) that are several times more affordable.

    Triple Whale

    Triple Whale is significantly more expensive than Lifetimely. Their cheapest plan is $129 per month and you pay more as you grow, to the point where if you are doing more than $1 million in sales you'll be paying at least $400 per month (or just shy of $5,000 per year).

    Does every app have the same basic P&L metrics and reports?

    Every Shopify app pulls the majority of P&L data straight from Shopify. This means that you likely won’t see much variation in the data itself aside for minor differences in names or definitions.

    But there’s a major gap between apps in how easy they make it to 1) review your most important metrics and 2) quickly identify potentially concerning trends in your data.

    The key thing to look for is customization options. Does the app allow you to build and organize your own dashboards with your choice of metrics and reports? Can you set custom alerts to notify you if a metric drops above or below a defined range? Can you set custom goals and targets?

    Lifetimely, Peel Insights, and Glew offer all of the above.‍

    BeProfit and Polar Analytics offer very basic customization, essentially only allowing you to decide whether or not to include certain metrics in your home dashboard.

    And Omniconvert doesn’t offer any customizations at all - all customers are limited to stock reports.

    Do different apps have different Lifetime Value calculations?

    Yes. Once you go beyond fundamental P&L metrics and move into more advanced analytics and reports, you’ll start to find major differences between apps.

    These differences are most apparent and most critical with Lifetime Value calculations. For LTV figures to hold up to any measure of accuracy, reliability, and actionability, they MUST be calculated using cohort analysis.

    Lifetimely, Peel Insights, BeProfit, and Polar Analytics all calculate LTV with cohort analysis. Among these four, Lifetimely offers the most options for much more detailed segmentation and analysis.

    On the other hand, both Glew and Omniconvert calculate LTV with extremely simplified equations that are functionally useless. This is a major faux pas for what should be the most insightful and actionable advanced metric in your arsenal, and it should be a major consideration in your choice of software.

    What features does Lifetimely have that competitors don’t?

    Lifetimely has always had the most sophisticated Lifetime Value calculations and cohort analysis on the market. We’re also  the only app that offers month-to-month projections of LTV. These AI-generated projections are incredibly useful for revenue forecasting and financial planning.

    Another differentiator is our Benchmarks tool, which scores your store’s performance versus your competitors and charts your major metrics on a bell curve of Shopify businesses in your industry. No other app offers a comparable alternative.

    Our LTV Drivers report is another unique feature. This report gives you automated insights about the products, tags, and discount codes that are most effective in increasing average LTV. In other words, the report pulls out the data that gives you the most leverage for making customer-centric decisions for your business.

    Our focus has always been to ship the features that will have the greatest impact on actionability and decision-making. We also build what our members want! You can see our user-generated product roadmap here:

    What features do competitors have that Lifetimely doesn’t?

    Every app’s features depend on its integrations, so the few features that Lifetimely lacks generally relate to the integrations that we haven’t built yet.

    For example, Peel Insights' integration with Slack makes it easier to share reports internally with a team. Another example is BeProfit’s compatibility with Wix and Woo platforms, which give it more versatility for sellers with a more diverse portfolio of shops (whereas for now we're focused only on Shopify).

    Some apps are also more CRM-oriented. Glew has a beautiful CRM that allows you to open up individual customer profiles and analyze an individual customer’s likelihood of churning. This is a great option for sellers who prioritize metrics on the level of the individual.

    Of course, no one app will have every feature, and it’s up to you to decide which features are most important to you and which option provides those features for the greatest value.

    If Lifetimely is one of the options you’re considering, we hope you give us a shot! You can sign up for our Free plan or give one of our other plans a free 14-day trial here.
