With everything moving at warp speed these days, it’s important to be able to manage the important business things on the go. And as an online retailer, you understand that sometimes things pop up. That’s why you need to know about these Shopify mobile updates. Shopify works hard to keep up with the demands of their customers, and these new updates don’t disappoint.

Shopify Mobile Updates

  1. Live view
  2. Apps
  3. Discounts
  4. Product collections

With these updates, Shopify makes it easier for you to run your business no matter what you’re up to. Keep an eye on your customers while you’re out running errands. Pop in to create a quick new discount while you Uber to a meeting. Manage your product collections while you wait for your to-go dinner order. Life and business happen fast, and Shopify makes a point to keep your store manageable from your fingertips no matter where you are.

Live View on Mobile

Keep track of your store’s performance whenever wherever. Real-time traffic analytics are crucial especially in the midst of high-volume traffic days like the launch of a new marketing campaign or a holiday shopping season. You can see your mobile stats by clicking on the “live” tab at the top of your home screen. From there, just click on “see live view.”

What can you see on your mobile live view? Well, everything that you can access from the desktop dashboard! You can access real-time page views, traffic sources, purchase funnels, and you can monitor the performance of your promotions as soon as they’re live.

Apps on mobile

You can now access all of the apps that you’ve installed in your store from your phone or tablet. All you have to do is click the “Store” tab in your Shopify app.

You can manage all sorts of things this way. Access Oberlo to find new products to add to your store. Or you could use Kit to create a product ad on Facebook. Publish a review with Product Reviews or manage how your store syncs with your Mailchimp lists. Everything you need is now right at your fingertips.

Product collections on Mobile

Without product collections, your customers may end up feeling a little lost on your site. Now, you can create and manage collections right from your phone. You can do this from the “Product” tab of your Shopify app.

This can come in handy, for instance, if one of your products goes out of stock. You can quickly hop into your collections and swap that product out of your Home Page collection with one that you still have available.

This Shopify mobile update is especially helpful for adding new products. You can actually snap your product photos with your phone, create the new product listing with those images, and add it to a collection without ever having to touch your computer. How handy is that!?

Discounts on Mobile

You can now create, modify, and manage discounts right from your phone on your Shopify app. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re up to. You can also keep tabs on how your customers are using the discounts you have available while you’re out and about. Is a particular sale going well? Extend it right then and there without ever having to return to your desk!

Create special imprompteu discounts or run a spur-of-the-moment social media promotion all from the palm of your hand!
