3. Planning Essential Features
The Integration of the essential features for e-commerce apps is the next step on the e-commerce app development process. We need to understand that users are now more mobile-dependent. Hence it is very important to ensure mobile features in the application.
For example, an e-commerce app with products in disorder will disengage users and put them off. Some essential features for every mobile application focusing on e-commerce are:
- Authentication feature like social media login or two-step login features, etc
Product search with categories and sub-types
Rating and review systems
Multiple payment methods that are fully secure
Easy-in and out policy
Tracking of the products
Step 4. Choose the right platform
For e-commerce retailers, there are two different kinds of methods you can choose from: Progressive Web Apps and Native Apps. Firstly PWAs are next-generation websites that offer the same kind of speed, interactivity, and performance as a native app. This can be used without downloading from app store ,Then you have Native Apps. These are downloaded and stored in a user’s phone. Native apps have to be developed separately for both iOS and Android. Operating System specific development (iOS and Android) full use of all the features a mobile phone.
Step 5. Pick the right budget and process
Now that we have figured out what our e-commerce app needs Now let’s talk about budget and process.
The big questions here are: how much time, money and resources we want to invest? And how do you want your App when sending out push messages, adding new features, changing your design, etc.
Making a bespoke app
With this process, you need to hire a development team to develop a brand new app. Firstly, a bespoke app helps you to be very specific about your requirements. Bespoke App is expensive and also it is a long development process. when money is not a matter we can use Bespoke App.
Small and medium size stores usually choose this option, but for big stores some custom adjustments are needed. E-commerce apps based on SAAS- technology are fast and easy to develop . smart plugins can turn your web store into a Progressive web App or native app. But With SAAS-solutions, you can’t just pick any feature or integration you want; you can only pick the features that are available. But usually, SAAS-solutions offer all the features to be used on mobile App. For instance, all of the features mentioned above, are part of the app package at Dli’n E-commerce App by Fernweh DomainEnroll.
Depending on how much you can invest on development process and how flexible your App need to be, you can choose any one option: develop a bespoke app, or make use of SaaS solution.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning were not about replacing Humans, but it always received such an impression. But there are some interesting advancements towards replacing or at least mimicking human behaviour. The developments are fascinating and terrifying at the same time.
We now actively see and comes across different AI technologies in our day to day life knowingly or unknowingly. Face detecting cameras are getting popular now, which can log people coming in and going out automatically, identify unknown faces. Google assistant is one of the most popular to adopt AI and machine learning, they fascinated the world by making an appointment call like humans by the virtual assistant. Yet another groundbreaking innovation is by Tesla Motors, who made self-driving cars, but those outside the US are not much aware of it to a great extent. Even within the country, there were lots of haters and some mob attacked self-driving cars, which is a clear translation that these developments scare people. May be films like “I, Robot” have contributed to it, but research also shows proof that it may go out of hand. Every technology can be used for both good and bad, it’s important to stay on the safe and positive side.
