Shopify for iPhone LaunchesMay 13, 2010
Free App Allows Shopify Store Owners to View and Manage Orders, Sales, Products and More On the Go with a Simple Touch
OTTAWA, ONTARIO — May 13, 2010— Shopify, a leading global provider of turnkey, hosted ecommerce solutions, today announced the launch of Shopify Mobile, a free App that allows Shopify ecommerce store owners to view and manage their entire online shop from their iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. With Shopify Mobile, shop owners can stay up-to-date with sales orders and ensure their customers’ needs are met, even while they’re away from the store.
Shopify Mobile provides instant mobile access to put online store sales statistics, order processing, shipment status and product and customer information right at your fingertips anytime, anywhere.
“Small business shop owners, in particular, often feel a bit chained to their store,” said Tobi Lütke, CEO of Shopify. “With a small staff and hands-on approach that makes their customers feel valued, it’s sometimes tough to get away—even for business-related errands, let alone vacation time.” Shop owners now easily have the power to run a successful business, not just a side-project or startup, wherever they may be. With Shopify Mobile, running a small business is really something owners can do in their spare time.
Shopify Mobile allows shop owners to stay on top of store business and feel confident that orders are being processed in a timely fashion, even while they’re away. If an issue does come up, they have instant access to order details, product information and all the other relevant information to be sure that the situation is handled quickly for improved customer satisfaction.
The App integrates seamlessly with the Shopify platform to ensure that mobile data is current with online data. Through Apple’s Push Notifications System, Shopify Mobile users can choose to receive automatic notification when new orders are placed.
