Shopify launches new app to make mobile commerce simpler

Shopify introduces Sello, making it easier for consumers to sell products in the mobile space

With more people entering into the mobile commerce landscape, some are finding shopping and making purchases with their mobile devices somewhat difficult. They are also finding it somewhat complicated to sell products in the mobile space. To resolve this issue and make mobile commerce somewhat simpler, Shopify has launched a new mobile application, called Sello. The app is free for both iOS and Android devices and is designed as a convenient way for people to participate in mobile shopping.

Sello aims to increase the convenience of mobile commerce, allowing more consumers to sell products

Sello is meant to allow anyone to create an online store, share the products that they find or offer through social networks, and make payments from a smartphone. Sello is not geared toward merchants that have significant comfort in the mobile shopping space, rather it allows a wide range of people to sell products in much the same way merchants do through Shopify’s primary platform. Shopify suggests that the average consumer has found it challenging to sell products online in the mobile space, but Sello may be able to change this.

Casual selling has been somewhat challenging for consumers in the mobile space

Mobile Commerce - New Mobile Shopping AppConsumers have long found selling products through conventional e-commerce platforms somewhat convenient. As mobile devices become more prominent, however, these sellers are beginning to focus more heavily on the mobile space. Finding convenient ways to accomplish this has been difficult, but Sello’s ability to interface with social networks could make mobile shopping and selling easier, allowing more consumers to participate in mobile commerce more often.

Shopify has taken note of the rise in casual selling

Shopify has a great deal of experience in the mobile commerce space, having provided many retailers with a wide range of services in the past. Sello represents a first for Shopify, which had been focused on established merchants for much of its existence. The rise in casual selling has lead Shopify into new territory, hoping to better engage consumers and make them more comfortable with mobile commerce as a whole.

Mobile commerce firm teams with Shopify

Apptive and Shopify join forces to promote mobile commerce among merchants

Apptive, a mobile commerce and management platform, has announced that it has entered into a new partnership with Shopify, an e-commerce firm. Through this new partnership, the two organizations aim to make it easier for consumers to shop through Shopify with their mobile devices. Shopify has become quite popular with merchants that are working on developing a strong online presence. These merchants are finding that engaging with mobile consumers is becoming increasingly important as more people begin to shop exclusively from their smartphones and tablets.

Apptive platform may help merchants establish a better connection with consumers reliant on mobile devices

Apptive has managed to establish a strong following through its EasyApp platform. The platform allows for the quick creation of e-commerce applications. Because the digital space is becoming more important to the retail sector, such platforms allow merchants to engage with consumers quickly and effectively. The platform also allows these merchants to make changes to their applications in an efficient manner, providing consumers with new services quickly.

Shopify merchants will be able to make use of Apptive platform to design applications in 15 minutes or less

This will give Shopify merchants access to Apptive’s platform, allowing them to build mobile commerce applications. According to Apptive, a mobile commerce application being built with its platform can be made in less than 15 minutes. There is no coding knowledge required to build these apps as the platform takes care of the technical side of the work.

Merchants must adapt to changing consumer base

Merchants that do not take steps to engage mobile consumers could be missing out on a major opportunity. More people are beginning to rely heavily on their mobile devices in daily life. This means that people are shopping and purchasing products from their smartphones and tablets more regularly. Mobile consumers have shown that they are both willing and able to spend larger sums of money when shopping online. Merchants that do not engage these consumers may run the risk of losing their relevance with a changing demographic.
