The Need For Mobile Speed: AMP-Based Magento Templates

Apr 9, 2018161Lana Miro

There are no speed limits on the road to success. And you shouldn’t face speed limits while loading mobile web pages because nobody wants to waste time. I’m really tired of waiting the needed info appears on the screen of my smartphone. In fact, research showed that 53% of mobile customers leave the site if it doesn’t load within 3 seconds. Just imagine that most sites take 14—19 seconds on a 3G and 4G connections. Thankfully, Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages project has freed most mobile websites of this disaster. So, what is AMP?

Magento For Mobile Admins

Sep 11, 2013107Pavel Novitsky

According to the world’s trends, online stores should be adapted for mobile users. We’ll pass without notice any disputes on this issue. We’ll also ignore the implementation methods: mobile and responsive themes, applications and separated mobile websites. Let’s simply agree with the following fact: mobile store customers should be just as satisfied with browsing experience as their desktop colleagues.

So be it, then – mobile themes are reasonably necessary. Let’s now find out who spends more time in the online store. Is it a fastidious customer? Or a competitor? Or maybe Tax Authorities? None of the above. This is an admin! But we care about our customers as much as we ignore our managers. I don’t mean that developers don’t think how to make easy-to-use admin panel. They work on desktop devices and develop admin panel for themselves. It sounds justly. But this justice doesn’t work for the admin who decided to check out how it goes in the store during the trip.

Mar 14, 201393Evgeny Mikhno

The current global trend indicates the increase of Internet traffic for mobile phones, pads and tables.  Many people today spend a free minute just surfing on the Internet, searching for some information, things or events. No wonder that as a consequence we can observe the growing number of online-store visitors, who prefer to make purchases directly from their mobile phones.

As a result, online store owners are beginning to adapt their websites to potential buyers and do their best to facilitate the browsing experience for all customers, including those with mobile devices.  A mobile-optimized version of a website is no longer luxury today but a necessity that also shows respect to your customers.  But it is important for a mobile version not to fall short of the same convenience and functionality as the main version, which stability and performance has been tested by web designers and proven by thousands of visitors.

The phrase Mobile Commerce was originally coined in 1997, to mean “the delivery of electronic commerce capabilities directly into the consumer’s hand, anywhere, via wireless technology.” Many choose to think of Mobile Commerce as meaning “a retail outlet in your customer’s pocket.”

According to BI Intelligence in January 2013, 29% of mobile users have now made a purchase with their phones. Walmart  estimated that 40% of all visits to their internet shopping site in December 2012 were from a mobile device. Bank of America predicts $67.1 billion in purchases will be made from mobile devices by European and U.S. shoppers in 2015.

Creating a Mobile PrestaShop Theme

Sep 14, 2012175Alex Zaymund

When I was making my first PrestaShop Theme, an idea crossed my mind (not a fresh one though): it would be great to create a mobile version of the theme besides a desktop one. At the very beginning, I was in some difficulty: it was impossible to delimit desktop and mobile PrestaShop templates. However, both our complete devotion and new possibilities of CSS 3 allow us to create unique things easily. We can improve internet sellers’ lives and display their products to customers, no matter what device they use to access the eShop. Read more

How Prestashop will work with mobile themes… Probably will.

Jun 20, 2012409Alex Simonchik

It’s said “probably” because unlike 1.5.0.9 Prestashop version, the latest 1.5.0.13 version (released on June, 7) has no methods for mobile device detection. Changelog in version 1.5.0.13 says nothing about it while Changelog in version 1.5.0.9 reports:

Improved/changed features:
[*] FO : Add mobile detection and mobile theme dispatcher

Where does the truth lie? We, folks, are confused. Anyways, I really hope that a mobile theme is not ready yet and developers will be given a nice present with a final version release.

So let’s see how methods worked in Prestashop 1.5.0.9.
