A few months ago, we updated our iPhone app with features to manage your shop. As of today, you can do the same on your Android!
Having your shop in your pocket is simply great. Here are four ways it will make running your business easier:
1. Manage orders from start to finish
You’ll now get immediate notifications on new orders. Yup, immediate. Plus, you’ll always have your customers’ addresses on hand – including when you’re at the post office! Just shipped your package? Use the app to mark the order as shipped and send a message to your customer letting them know it’s on the way.
2. Keep your products looking fresh
Adding products from your phone is super simple – you can even snap and upload product images directly from your device.

Keep track of your sales, visitors, and followers wherever you are. Just think of the power in seeing the weekly impact of adding new products or updating your store!
