Why get ShopApp®

If you have a customer base with many loyal and repeated customers, ShopApp® is a solution for you. Your customers can download your store app from iTunes or Google Play and always have fast access to your store right on their phone home screen.

Offering a native mobile app for customers is good business for a variety of reasons:

  1. It is yet another sales channel.
  2. You will be closer to your customers, literally in their pockets.
  3. A native mobile app works perfectly on your customers’ mobile devices.
  4. We do all the complicated technical work for you.

Here are examples of apps we have already created for our clients:

ShopApp® features

The apps have all the features necessary for a successful e-commerce operation.

  1. A full product catalog that synchronises with your Ecwid store.
  2. Information about the business, including location, a photo of the store owner, and links to your website and social media accounts.
  3. Merchant contact information: phone or email address.

There are many more features under development right now that will be available in updates to come.

Note: The checkout takes place in the browser. Once a customer clicks the "Buy" button, they are redirected to your Ecwid store on the web where they can choose from the shipping and payment options available in your store and place their order.
