Online Commerce Made Easy For Maximum Profits And Better Conversions

The Shift From E-commerceTo M-commerce- Introduction

Times have changed and so do the mediums of commerce

“Shopping via mobile devices is forecasted to grow to constitute 42% share of online commerce by the year 2019,” as per a report by Javelin. Gone are the days when shopping was just limited to physical shops and defined markets. With the digitization, traditional commerce has transformed into to e-commerce, i.e. electronic commerce.

Electronic commerce refers to buying or selling of a product or service via an electronic medium like personal computers, desktops, tablets, smartphones etc. With the rise in e-commerce, we also saw the emergence of online marketplaces.

Today, mobile devices play an important role in e-commerce. Smartphones or tabs have simplified our lives and changed the way we access various services. This is the reason why e-commerce companies are increasingly looking forward to building an interactive mobile app for business.

Building an e-commerce mobile app is now simpler than ever. SVAP Infotech is one of the leading providers of e-commerce mobile app development in India with end-to-end support.

Additional Features To Include In An E-commerce App

  • Registration

    The registration process of your application plays an important part especially when people have little to no patience when it comes to fill long registration forms. Simply allow the flexibility to login with the social media accounts like Facebook or email to attract more registrations.

  • Multiple Payment Options

    It is a part of the shopping experience. With a number of digital payment options available, customers use several ways to make payment. Always provide them multiple-payment methods to choose from while making a payment – credit card, net banking, e-wallets, debit cards, etc.

  • Push Notifications

    Push notifications are a great marketing tool if used wisely. While too many push notifications can irritate the customer, timely executed notifications about any new offers, discounts, functionality can help them stay informed about the application. All this will indirectly help boost revenues.

  • Social Media Integration

    Allow users to login into the application using their social media accounts – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest. This not only helps in one-click login but ensures that your application is available to the customer at all times. Customers can also share special discounts through their social media channels and increase your product’s reach.

  • Deals & Discounts

    Discounts are a special marketing tool that can help you increase your products sale and reduce cart abandonment rates. You must include regular discount features and allow customers to directly use coupon codes through the app. Some e-commerce apps have special discount codes for first-time app users or on referrals. You can give discounts on customer’s special days like anniversaries, birthdays, etc. to encourage sales and build long-lasting bond with the customers.

  • QR Code Product Search

    QR codes are perceived to be a must-have feature by many customers; it helps them gather related information about a product that is authentic, easy-to-comprehend and most importantly highly desirable. You can either embed a QR code feature or create your own bar code for products.
