E-Commerce Apps vs E-Commerce Websites

Consumers love the seamless experience of mobile and it shows! The number of consumers browsing on smartphones and tablets has rapidly increased over the past decade. Mobile browsing has the advantage of a better user experience, faster speeds, and a wider range of features.

Retail apps are one of the most popular digital platforms available, with younger generations embracing this new approach to shopping. When it comes to the e-commerce app vs. websites, apps are fast becoming the favoured choice due to their outstanding functionality. Designed specifically for mobile browsing, they’re far more responsive than websites and offer a fantastic, user-focused experience.

Mobile Apps and Mobile Websites: Comparing Use

It’s well known that apps are the preferred method of browsing for mobile users. A recent study found that people from the UK are spending an average of 4.8 hours a day browsing through apps on their phones; a third of their waking lives! Many of these users browse retail apps with the intent to shop, using them to:

  • View product photos
  • Read product reviews
  • Manage memberships

Apps are also frequently used to enhance the in-store experience, such as Click-and-Collect . In fact, your entire commerce strategy can be linked to your app. Deliver a cohesive approach to customer service, product browsing, and branding across all points of contact, starting with your app.

The Advantages of an E-Commerce Android App

We’ve already touched on some of the benefits of e-commerce apps for Android and iOS, but here are a wealth of functional advantages, including:

  • Sending push notifications to increase engagement
  • Storing cached information and saved data to speed up the buying process (e.g. one-click checkouts)
  • Using your brand's logo as your app icon to increase brand awareness
  • Providing in-app customer support to solve issues quickly and easily
  • Making personalisation easy to improve user experience and encourage more conversions.

When you team up with Brightec e-commerce app developers, you can also expect intuitive navigation, customer-centric design, and a clear brand identity. All of these combine to create a digital experience that’ll boost your brand and drive sales.
