Mobile commerce is a hot item and many are discussing it. Now the thousands of online shops using the open source solution OS Commerce should be able to achieve the jump to mobile commerce easier and without any modifications to existing systems. Using new “mShop” product from the mobile enabling solutions company enprovia, the merchant should be able to move an existing online store to mobile devices and to get listed in the Apple iTunes app store easily.
“The solution consists of two parts, a simple-to-install component, the so called "gateway” that runs on all common platforms and the mobile application itself” says Federico Sensi, product manager at enprovia. “This new app is branded according to the corporate identity of the merchant and there are no transaction or hidden fees involved. The merchant uses his regular clearing and payment system” adds Sensi.
The effort to have an existing ecommerce going mobile is said to be low, in the number of days, and the solution provides consumer friendly functions such as single-page checkout, wish list, product search and push notifications. Windows Mobile 7 and Google Android are to be launched whereas iPod, iPhone and iPad are already supported.
Inspired by merchants' modern-day needs in combination with our developers' expertise, our new “mShop” app allows merchants to accept credit cards and other payments on the go.
Online retailers are requested to contact enprovia at http://www.enprovia.com/mshop for more details how to participate in the “OS Commerce goes mobile” startup program, which should give the first stores additional benefits.
