How much does it cost to make an app?

Written by on Wednesday, August 26th 2020

This is one of the biggest questions these days. One of our most frequently asked questions. And let's be honest, the answer is not easy as the price will depend on multiple factors. Different developer rates, project complexity, and the time it takes to create an app will impact its cost. The more things you want, the higher the price! That is why we couldn't stress enough the importance of defining your concept well before you even start developing your app. Knowing beforehand what you want inside your app will help with budgeting. The price of your app will indeed depend on what your project entails and how you want to achieve it.

Shopping App: A new add-on to increase conversion, the Quick Buy button

Written by on Wednesday, August 12th 2020

Easy navigation and smooth ordering process are two of the main reasons shoppers will stay or leave a shopping app. 

You can improve this shopping experience by creating smooth ordering directly from the Home page or from a collection. Instead of navigating to single product pages, your clients can shop directly from the products list

By allowing your clients to quickly select products, you can speed up their shopping flow on your app, which then will result in increasing your conversion rate. It might also encourage them to buy more.

For example, if you're a caterer or selling beauty product, your clients are most likely going to buy more than one product from you. If they are buying a facial cleanser, they will probably also buy a moisturizer or exfoliant. 

Thank to our new add-on, you can now add this feature to your Shopping App.
