Why you should offer a mobile app to your customers right now

Why you should offer a mobile app to your customers right now

Jonathan Roque

What is one thing you can’t leave your home without? Of course, it's your cellphone! It’s usually the first thing we grab as we head out the door. Mobile ecommerce is no longer a trend, but a part of the entire ecommerce system and buying journey. According to Shopify, “three out of four consumers say they buy from their smartphones because it saves time.” Not only is mobile part of the customers buying journey, but it is part of the expected norm.

There are two reasons why mobile ecommerce is necessary for success on Shopify today, convenience and the ability to allow Shopify merchants to succeed and compete with giant retailers. The giant retailers have configured their shopping experience to mobile, by optimizing their website for a mobile experience or going all in and developing an app. Shopify merchants can now compete with giant retailers through our integration with Shop2App.
