By pairing Volusion for Wear with our other native mobile apps, our merchants now have a complete toolset for managing their store wherever life takes them.

Volusion, the leading ecommerce provider for small and medium businesses, today announced the release of its new Volusion for Wear app, which enables merchants to manage their store directly from their smartwatch. The app, which is compatible with Android smartwatches, can now be downloaded on Google Play. Volusion Wear is part of a larger release of mobile features from the ecommerce provider, including updated native iOS and Android apps that enhance store management capabilities.

“As mobile devices become more deeply integrated with our everyday lives, so grows the need for our merchants to better manage their stores on-the-go,” said Clay Olivier, Volusion CEO. “This is why we’ve invested heavily in increasing our mobile management capabilities, and are excited to have this best-in-class smartwatch app now available to the public.”

Volusion for Wear is a free app for Android smartwatches, and offers quick insights into the status of a Volusion store. The app allows merchants to review important store activities, such as new, processing and shipped orders, as well as the ability to view a stores’ total sales for the last 24 hours, seven days, and ninety days. The app also provides push notifications to alert Volusion merchants of new orders and provides order details in real-time. Beyond reviewing new orders, the Volusion for Wear app provides inventory alerts when the stock status of a product is running low.

“This new smartwatch app truly rounds out our mobile management capabilities,” said Chris Hedge, Volusion’s Director of Product Management. “By pairing Volusion for Wear with our other native mobile apps, our merchants now have a complete toolset for managing their store wherever life takes them.”

Volusion also recently released the third version of their native iOS and Android app, which provides increased functionality so merchants can more easily manage their online store around the clock. New features include the ability to direct add new products and edit existing product details, secure login using iPhone’s Touch ID technology, and enhanced shipping tools.

To introduce their new app, Volusion is offering existing storeowners a chance to win one of five free Android smartwatches. To learn more about Volusion for Wear, visit: http://www.volusion.com/android-wear-store-app.
