MobileCart / Shopping Cart

Home Documentation App Features MobileCart / Shopping Cart

MobileCart is our advanced eCommerce (Shopping Cart) feature. Similar to our mCommerce feature, you will be able to sell your products from one or several points of sale. Users will be able to pay for your products/services via PayPal, Stripe, credit card, or pay at your point of sale or when they are delivered.  However, our MobileCart feature contains many additional functions. This includes the ability to add notes and labels to products, advanced layout features, comprehensive reports, and much, much more!

See the instructions below for setting up MobileCart.


1. Create Your Initial Store

After adding the Commerce feature to your app, click on  to add a point of sale:


Then fill out with your store info:



Next add your Delivery Options:

In Store – The customer will pay for and obtain the product/service while in the store.

Carry Out – The customer will pick-up the items from your business.

Delivery – You will have the items delivered.

Fixed Method – You can add custom delivery options.  You can include your Delivery Fee based on specific amounts.  The “Free Delivery From” amount would include a fee starting with a specific amount.  The Minimum Order would set the minimum amount that the order must be to enable the delivery.



Free delivery starting from – Minimum order total to qualify for free delivery.

Delivery radius – The delivery radius from the store’s address.

Delivery time – Time to deliver.

The clients calculate the change – Calculate whether or not changes in distance.

Fixed Method – Some static delivery method options (with costs and title).


2) Add Payment Options

Select the Payment Options that you would like your customers to be able to use.


If you choose Paypal, you’ll need to do some mandatory operations in your Paypal account, click here to see how you have to set up your Paypal account to enable it in your app.

You can setup your app so that your customers can pay by credit card when they pick up their order, upon delivery, etc.  If you want your customers to only pay in the app, select the option “credit card (online payment)” and fill out the two sections “Secret Key” and “Publishable key” that you obtained on Stripe. If you don’t know these keys, just check out this page on how to get them.


3) Create Categories For Your Products

Then go in “Catalog” and click on “Categories”:



Click on “+” to add your categories.

A first one is automatically created but won’t be shown to users. It’s your root category but once again it will not be shown to users so you can leave it like that. Select it and click on “+” to add a subcategory (in fact, as the root category is not shown, this new category will be a main category). Add as many categories and subcategories as you need:



4) Create Products

Then click on “products” from the main menu in “Catalog”.

Click on “+” to add a product. And fill out with your new product info. Add as many photos as you wish.



You can some sizes to your product. Switch on Product Formats and then fill out sizes information of your product, with a price for each size. Note that if you activate this function, you won’t be able to change the price of your product in the main menu as you did just before. The price displayed in the app will be the smallest one (“from $3” for example).



You can also add some options to this product. By options we mean sauces, complementary products, etc.

Here is an exemple with some sauces.

First, create a new options group:



If you check “at least one option is required” the user will have to choose from the sauces you offer when he orders the product. He will not be able to order without choosing one of these options (that’s useful when you have many sizes for a product, as we will see next).

Then, in the “Add it options” section, click on “+” to add options to this group of options:

Click on “OK” to save.

Now, in your product details page you can see your options below.



Then check the categories for your product:



And click on “OK” to save your product.

You can also duplicate a product if you want to create a new product that doesn’t have many differences from another one.



If you have many products in the feature, it can be difficult to scroll to find the one you are looking for. That’s why we implemented a search bar, where you can type its name and find it easily.


5) Manage

In the “Orders” menu, you will be able to see and manage the orders you receive.

In the “Settings” menu, you will able to manage the fields required during the order. You can either choose to make a field mandatory, hidden, or simply hide it from the form. Let’s look at an example:



And let’s see the result inside the app when ordering:



Furthermore, if the user has already created an account in the app and is logged in, some information will automatically be retrieved by the shopping cart feature to fill parts of the form, as you can see in the example above.

You will also be able to link, for each store, a connected printer to your app to print orders when they arrive, and also to manage your tax rates if you have several:





6) Important Notice

When utilizing the MobileCart feature, you will also have a hidden Catalog feature added to your app.  Do NOT delete/remove the Catalog feature from your app.  This is a vital component to the Shopping Cart.  The Catalog feature is hidden from your App Users but you the App Admin can see it while inside of your App Manager.
