Shopify has recently announced that twelve apps from Beeketing and one app from BoostFlow (Beeketing’s secondary company) are set to be removed from the Shopify App Store as of August 27th, 2019.
As per a statement posted in the Shopify Community, this action has been taken by Shopify as a result of multiple violations of the Shopify Partner Program Agreement, including inadequate support for merchants and abuse of the Shopify marketing tools.

If you’re one of the many merchants currently using one or more of these apps, you may be concerned about what steps to take next to ensure your marketing activities carry on uninterrupted.
You should explore alternative apps as soon as possible, as these ones will disappear from the Shopify App Store on the above date and their functionality will be disconnected.
We recommend you consider the Firepush app first and foremost, as it provides many of the services offered by Beeketing and BoostFlow, all in one app! In particular, Firepush is an excellent alternative to Recover Cart Pusher.
