While there are several unknowns in the world of online selling, one thing is clear: mobile commerce is on the rise. In fact, 30% of ecommerce site traffic came from mobile devices in 2013, with a 20% increase in mobile traffic during last year’s holiday season alone.

In other words, having an online store that works across all devices, including tablets and smartphones, is now a full-on necessity.

Fortunately, your Volusion store comes equipped with a free, fully-optimized mobile site. This suite of tools allows your shoppers to buy from you anytime, anywhere by providing a truly mobile-friendly user experience, all the way from browsing to checkout. In fact, Volusion merchants using our mobile capabilities see, on average, a 14% increase in sales compared to those who don’t.

Beyond a sales boost and improved customer experience, here are a few reasons why you should enable your mobile store if you haven’t already:

  • Setup is a snap: Your mobile store is just a few clicks away. In your admin, simply go to Design > Mobile and under Mobile Storefront, set the switch to On. While you’re there, you can also enable Mobile Checkout by switching the Mobile Checkout setting to On.
  • Designed for any screen: Customers can easily navigate your site on their phone or tablet device, with the ability to view categories and products in the most intuitive way possible.
  • Android and iOS Ready: Your mobile store is designed to work on all major mobile platforms, with no additional setup required on your part.
  • Streamlined shopping experience: From storefront to order completion, your customers will receive a highly intuitive mobile experience. Better yet, you have the chance to customize the experience to meet your individual needs.

    Hi, would love to use the mobile app here in Australia along with our regular store, however the pricing on the mobile store does not include gst which is required here. Any plans to rectify this so everyone can benefit from this feature?

      Hi Tony, thanks so much for your question. Spoke with our lead on the mobile front and he mentioned that we unfortunately don’t have a timeline to implement this feature at this time. We do, however, definitely recognize the importance of this addition and will explore it further. To help us document this better, can you please also submit your idea to us at ideas.volusion.com? We’ve also got some exciting updates to the platform coming in the near future, so stay tuned for updates from us on that front. Thanks!
