More than half of all new internet users use only their mobile devices to surf the web. Furthermore, mobile traffic accounts for over 58% of ecommerce purchases. Neglecting the mobile users can be deadly for an ecommerce business.
Catering to mobile users is not just about having responsive ecommerce design. For maximum customer retention and sales you need to offer your Magento store as a mobile app. Ecommerce mobile apps are literally the gateway to customer’s pockets. urYo app installed on your customer’s device is the ultimate sign of trust and a marketing opportunity that should not be wasted.
To make sure your store is realizing its full potential you need to offer both an Android and an iOS ecommerce app, and the app had better not just duplicate the functions of a website. Using an app builder to create a successful ecommerce app has never worked – all it causes is bad Appstore and Google Play Store reviews saying “this is just a replica of their website”.
