When it comes to offering eCommerce Mobile Apps for an online OpenCart store, the very first thing that comes in mind is coding. This is true but not needed anymore for OpenCart store owners.
In this write-up, we will describe various kinds of shopping apps builder that are popular in the eCommerce landscape as “NO CODE MOBILE APP BUILDER”. Also, we will cover how different types of OpenCart Mobile Apps can be launched in just 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Purchase extension and install it in the store.
Step 2: Fill pre-requisite details and submit details.
Step 3: Review the final app and confirm to publish
Types of OpenCart Mobile Shopping Apps:
Two very commonly used mobile apps are Native (Android & iOS) & Progressive Web apps. While native apps are published on Google Play and Apple App store, progressive web apps can be installed just by opening the URL in a mobile browser.
Hence, whenever the user visits a PWA active mobile website, they get to download the PWA Mobile App just by tapping the “Add To Cart button”.
Ways To Easily Build & Launch OpenCart Mobile Apps:
Readymade extensions are lifesavers for eCommerce store owners for a hassle-free app launch. The OpenCart Mobile App Builder extensions developed by KnowBand comes with a readymade framework to get the job done:
- OpenCart Mobile App Builder (Android & iOS Apps)
- OpenCart PWA Mobile App (Progressive Web App)
These extensions allow the store admin to build and launch an OpenCart Mobile app with just a few clicks. These ready-made app maker extensions make full-fledged OpenCart Mobile Apps taking care of the user-end features along with admin panel settings.
The store owners get extended customization/configuration control without any need for coding.
Nowadays, almost every eCommerce store has its native app and their PWA apps live simultaneously. This way, the store gets to reach all possible target audiences with little to no efforts.
OpenCart store owners can use the native app builder extension to launch their Android & iOS Apps along with the OpenCart PWA Builder extension to launch their OpenCart PWA.
Compatibility with Multi-vendor Marketplace:
E-Commerce Marketplaces usually have a store owner who monitors & manages all of the sellers in the e-store. A marketplace mobile app does wonders for any eCommerce store because app users get way better shopping experience on a mobile app than the website.
Both Native and PWA apps are compatible with KnowBand Multi-vendor marketplace module. In simple words, if you are using both the mobile app and multi-vendor marketplace, sellers can be displayed on the same app.
Although seller management will be only done from the web module, yet the seller listing, products, etc. will be on the app for front-end mobile shopper browse and purchase.
