StoreHippo 1st E-commerce Platform to Offer PWA Out of the Box
StoreHippo, the leading SaaS e-commerce platform is all set to radically change the mobile e-commerce scene with Progressive Web Apps (PWA). Now all the stores built on StoreHippo are PWA which means, they have a mobile app like look, feel and functionality even though they open in a browser. This offering from StoreHippo eliminates the need for developing separate mobile apps for Android or iOS as the website itself is a web app. PWA allows to prompt the user to add a shortcut to their home screen offering the e-commerce stores the same accessibility and visibility as a native app. This technological shift makes it easier to engage and convert customers even if they are using entry-level smartphones.
StoreHippo has been using web apps since its inception and it was the 1st e-commerce platform to use PWA for Ecommerce. Over the years, as the PWA technology matured, StoreHippo used it extensively to offer more functionalities that bring the e-commerce sites closer to native (mobile) app experience. PWA makes the e-commerce stores;
- Faster and more engaging for the users
- Work on any device with modern browsers
- Fit to any device screen size
- Able to work online or even offline
- Require less space compared to mobile apps
- Easily discoverable by search engines
- HTTPS ensures high security and privacy
- Easy to access, anywhere, anytime
