When the computer was first invented, it was meant to be able to perform very, very complex calculations. It was thought that the device would revolutionize the world. Sure, it did. But not exactly as the people of that time thought it would. Sure, it was used for technological advances and for backing calculations that have brought technology to its current form. However, we now use the computer for a variety of other purposes — such as shopping. Platforms like Amazon, Shopify, eBay,
Today, almost every one of us has one or other shopping app on our devices. We use these applications to compare prices, check out the goods on other stores, and even make purchases — getting whatever we have ordered conveniently delivered to our doorsteps. M-commerce is growing at a rapid pace and has started pulling fans from e-commerce. As per reports coming from various sources, we may on the verge of yet another tech revolution that will see e-commerce totally — or almost totally — supplanted by M-commerce.

This is a fact which many e-commerce companies have leveraged, and have deployed to their advantage, leading to a huge increase in sales and revenue.
A mobile application gives your store a dedicated presence on the customer’s smartphone, the ability to push notifications will allow you to engage them with tailored offers and, you can use the data obtained from the app to create custom offers that will literally force customers to buy and convert leads.
