The Enhanced Ecwid Mobile App: Take Your Online Store With YouOct 13, 2017 by Dmitry Zhukov, Ecwid Team
Add a new product right after taking a product picture. Discover a new order and call the customer immediately to clarify the details. Run a promotion from the beach. All that can be real, when your store’s backend is in your smartphone.
We develop our apps
Try running your business whenever and wherever you like with the new
Connect the app to your Ecwid store automatically in Control Panel → Promotions → Mobile. Even if you don’t have an Ecwid account yet, you can create one right from the app.
You don’t have to enter your login/password each time you want to use the app. It stays connected to your store and automatically logs you in.
Try New Features
We have added new features to the application that are already available in the Ecwid Control Panel, as well as special functions for smartphones: a barcode scanner and additional protection with a passcode.
Create and edit coupons
Attract customers with discount and free shipping coupons — creating a coupon only requires a couple of taps in the app.
Define terms for your discounts:
- Offer discounts in percent or absolute values.
- Set up discounts for separate products, categories, or customers.
- Set the minimum order subtotal for the discount to apply.
- Limit the number of times your coupon can be applied.
- Limit your promotion in time.
- Set minimum order subtotal for free shipping.
- Limit your coupon to a single use for each customer.
- Offer free shipping to everyone, your repeat customers, or specific people.
The mix of free shipping and a discount is a hit for holiday sales. You can create such coupons too, but be careful with your profits.
Running promotions from your mobile device has a unique benefit: you can launch and stop your coupons at any moment. Sharing your coupon with customers on social media or via email is also a breeze with the Share button in the right upper corner.
