Turn Your Ecwid Shop Into A Native Mobile App Without Writing Any Code At All

Сomplement Your Ecwid Shop with a Mobile App — No Coding Required

5 min read

Wouldn’t it be cool to turn your online store into a mobile app? It probably seems complicated and expensive, but it’s actually easy and affordable. And Ecwid can do it for you!

Your personalized, custom mobile app will look something like this:

This is how your Ecwid mobile app may look

We implemented this idea for our users because the mobile phone is such a significant part of our lives today. We spend a lot of time with mobile devices in our hands, even at home with desktop computers and laptops right beside our phones.

If you’re not holding yours right now, it’s probably in your purse or pocket. It’s very important to have an ideal mobile shopping experience for your customers.

That’s why we created ShopApp — an automated retail app solution that allows every Ecwid store owner to sell their products via native smartphone apps. It is fully responsive, meaning your store will look great on any device, and your customers will have instant access to your inventory. They can shop your store more easily than ever before.

How ShopApp Works

After you apply to the program, we will build your app and place it in the iOS App Store or Google Play for your customers to download. There’s nothing left to do after that, except wait for your customer purchases to come in. How cool is that?

With ShopApp, every Ecwid store owner can publish a professional native mobile app for their customers to download from the App Store or Google Play, and make an order right on the phone.

The first mobile app we created was for Chris Evertsen, the owner of Karbon Speed. He sells handmade bike wheels and other cycling accessories via Ecwid. The Karbon Speed app shows a full catalog, some information about the business, and various ways to get in touch. You can see it all for yourself by downloading the iPhone app or Android app now.

Having a native mobile app for your customers to use 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.

ShopApp features

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

  • A full product catalog that synchronizes with your Ecwid store.
  • Information about the business, including location, a photo of the store owner, and links to your website and social media accounts.
  • Merchant contact information (phone or email).
  • The ability to buy products via Apple Pay – a simple way to make payments from an iPhone. If Apple pay is turned off, the “Buy” button will redirect to the web-version of the store where customers can complete their orders.

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

Your app in your customers pockets - just imagine!

How to get ShopApp

ShopApp is included for all ANNUAL UNLIMITED users.

If you want to get the app, please:

  1. Upgrade to the Annual Unlimited plan.
  2. Fill out this form – specify your email and Ecwid Store ID.

Then we will begin working on your app. This process usually takes 3-4 weeks. After that, we will submit the app to the App Store and Google Play. At this point, the app is live and ready for your customers to download.

We believe ShopApp will bring convenience and opportunity to you and your customers. If you have any questions or ideas, email us at shopapp@ecwid.com and we’ll respond as quickly as we’re able.

So simple to use – even my most technophobic clients can manage. Easy to install, quick to set up. Light years ahead of other shop plugins.
I’m so impressed I’ve recommended it to my website clients and am now using it for my own store along with four others for which I webmaster. Beautiful coding, excellent top-notch support, great documentation, fantastic how-to videos. Thank you so much Ecwid, you rock!
I’ve used Ecwid and I love the platform itself. Everything is so simplified it’s insane. I love how you have different options to choose shipping carriers, to be able to put in so many different variants. It’s a pretty open e-commerce gateway.
Easy to use, affordable (and a free option if starting off). Looks professional, many templates to select from. The App is my favorite feature as I can manage my store right from my phone. Highly recommended 👌👍
I like that Ecwid was easy to start and to use. Even for a person like me, without any technical background. Very well written help articles. And the support team is the best for my opinion.
For everything it has to offer, ECWID is incredibly easy to set up. Highly recommend! I did a lot of research and tried about 3 other competitors. Just try ECWID and you'll be online in no time.
