Ecwid E-commerce App Update for iOS 13: New Push-Notifications and Dark Mode

The new iOS 13 was released at the end of September, and we updated our Ecwid E-commerce app shortly after (yep, we’ve got Dark Mode). But the most exciting development is the introduction of our revamped push-notifications — an informative and oh-so-convenient way to get updates and info about your store.

New Push-Notifications for Orders

Old push notifications only provided updates about new orders. With new push notifications, we show you all the important information:

Get more details at a glance: what customers purchased, how much it cost, and if they completed their payment.

Order notifications will show the:

  • Order number
  • Order total purchase sum
  • Order status (paid or awaiting payment and the time of in-store pick-up if applicable)
  • Number of items in the order, their titles, and a product photo (if order is limited to one product)

Notifications help you plan your work: does it need immediate attention, or can it wait? If an order is awaiting payment and you only ship items after they’re paid for, then there’s no need to rush. If a customer selected in-store pickup and they might be there soon, it’s probably time to start packing a product.

Check out order details without opening the app — simply press and hold the notification for expanded order information.

You’ll see the list of items ordered, information about the customer, and the shipping address — basically everything you need to know, right at a glance without ever opening the app.

Set a unique notification sound — a signal from space, the sound of an opening cash register… the choice is yours. With a unique notification sound, you’ll be able to easily distinguish an order notification from your other messages.

To change your notification sound, open the app then go to Store → Settings → Notifications, and choose the sound that’s right for you.

iOS 13 Support and Dark Mode

If you use your cellphone a lot at night, Dark Mode can help you avoid straining your eyes or bothering the people around you with a light that’s too bright. And as a nice bonus, Dark Mode also saves battery power on iPhones with OLED displays (X, XS, and 11 Pro).

Once Apple added Dark Mode to its iOS interface, popular apps were rushing to get on board. As for us, we’ve been onboard form the beginning. We understand that being a small business owner means sometimes working late. To make your late-night routine more comfortable, we added Dark Mode to the Ecwid E-commerce app. Here’s how it looks:

You can turn on Dark Mode for iOS 13 in your Settings or in the Control Center by holding down on the Brightness indicator. You can also select what times Dark Mode will be active, so you can use it when you want it and not when you don’t.
