Thankfully, there’s safety in numbers: that’s why over 10,000 companies use MobiCart to create mobile shopping carts for their business.
Think of it as a DIY mobile storefront, but with way less hassle involved than if you tried to undertake all that work by your lonesome. And the results are picture perfect (more screenshots here.)
You can develop a shopping cart app with MobiCart that works with your existing website, or as a standalone product. In addition to Apple and Android support, you can also build shopping cart apps with HTML 5. In terms of payment, you can use PayPal or create your own API payment gateways.
MobiCart is hosted by the Rackspace cloud, which should put your mind at ease (although with such a large and devoted following, you shouldn’t have any doubts about the quality of the service.) Plus, you’ve got access to the source code, to make it easy to customize your offering.
Here’s the real burning question: what’s all this gonna cost? Good news! You can get a free plan to play around with, though you will be limited in terms of products (you get only 10). A basic plan sets you back $15/month, and you’ll get a 100 product limit.
There’s also a Starter plan ($29/month, 2,000 product limit), and a Pro plan (unlimited product at a cost of $49 month.) The pro plan also ensures that you get priority access to chat and email support. (The full price scale breakdown is here.)
All things considered, there isn’t a more vibrant, dynamic option out there for painlessly creating mobile shopping apps. With very little effort on your end, you can develop beautiful shopping gateways, stock them with your products and quickly take them live. If you’re an entrepreneur, you should absolutely take a look at what they can do for you.
