So, you have your dream eCommerce website all setup (and it took only less than 2 weeks of time period) and is all set to make you some money. Then all of a sudden, an era of mobile application hits. For years, you struggle with an eCommerce store, hoping you won’t have to spend more money for another platform.
But if we take a look at the present scenario, then there is an undeniable statistics that more than 51% of all traffic is on a mobile device. It clearly means you need to start a mobile eCommerce application. Fortunately, there are lots of tools out there today that can help swiftly and easily transition your eCommerce store into an app. These tools have also driven down costs, so can make the transactions even cheaper than earlier.
First of all let me quickly correct a misconception, it’s not exclusively truthfulthat an application is a transition of a website. Ideally, your website and an application will become extensions of each other, so your website never actually goes away. If you consider it from a digital marketing perspective, having an application and a website is also beneficial for customer engagement as well as brand loyalty. And it is also helpful in terms Google ranking result.
What is the primary purpose of a business? It is an exchange of service/product with the same expectation of some other service/product with a similar value. In other words, your end goal is to provide something valuable to your client, in order to receive something equally valuable (i.e. money).
The valuable your product or service is, the more amount of money you will make. A mobile eCommerce app is one of the significant ways to provide extremely high value services to your prospect customers.
Of course, it’s not quite that simple. The first step towards an eCommerce application starts with how? Generally speaking, there are three broad types of app development methods:
Native applications have earned a reputation of being the best. Native application has been designed for only specific platforms such as Android and IOS and it obviously has the best UI/UX and the most features. And the code of native applications is also written as the device’s OS, thus it is providing crystal clear communication as well as enriched operability.
Some of the hands on advantages:
Native apps integration is actually beneficial with the device. As it is accessing address books, browsers, phone, and camera in an exceptionally easy way and it occurs almost flawlessly.
For an eCommerce app, this is especially relevant. As you are not running a lot of animations, so; easily your app will process to lots of data and refresh quickly.
You can easily use different types of touch gestures, it is also called multi-touch. This is a key feature of Native apps. Some of the gestures like swiping, pinching, and multi-tapping.
An HTML5 application is principally a series of websites displayed on your phone. Unlike Native apps, Web-based apps are a one-size fits all approach. This is the reason; it’s substantially cheaper in terms of money and time.
As mentioned above, an HTML5 application has a higher search engine presence and is more probable to draw in more traffic. The absolute benefit of HTML5 over both Native and Hybrid apps is a completely free distribution. Native and Hybrid apps must be distributed over one app store or another.
For an industrialist with a decent budget a hybrid app is the safest way to go. A hybrid application is generally written in Java and HTML5. It is a web-based application, inside a native container that allows users to make use of those great features basically a native app provides. However the container doesn’t provide the identical look and feel of a native application and it’s actually pretty cool.
The development skills needed are more broadly available (and easier to use). The price is middle of the road. So, in all the way it is beneficial to go with the hybrid app.
So, this is a sheer fact that at the end, it is largely depends on the funds available. If you are not concerned about a budget, then it is advisable to go with a Native app. If it is your startup, then an HTML5 app is the best convenient option. And Hybrid application is obviously a good choice in terms of its options and opportunity for success.
