Why you need a PWA for your Shopify store?

  • PWA can be accessed using any browser, i.e., Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or even Edge. Thus, acting as a single solution for multiple platforms!
  • PWA provides more or less the same features as provided by the native applications. Moreover, the total expenditure of PWA is just a portion of what is required for native apps.
  • PWA requires 1/3rd of the total efforts to maintain. One update for all the versions. Moreover, the updates are deployed easily without the need for approval.
  • All it takes for the PWA to reach the audience is a web browser and a URL. Since PWA is supported by almost all browsers, be it Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge.
  • This factor increases the reachability on its own.
  • Moreover, PWA acts like a website, and thus, they get indexed in the search engines. So, improving the SEO can easily and organically help you get ranked among top results. Simply revving up the business visibility.
  • PWA, in general, is secured as it runs over the SSL protocol. Running on the HTTPS protocol makes sure that the data exchange between the client and server remains secure.
  • PWAs don’t require downloading or installing. They can simply be added to the homescreen & get started. Barely occupying any storage with a hassle-free process.
  • PWA works fine under poor network conditions. PWAs are built in a way that they can save the tasks performed & later update when connected to the internet.
  • PWA loads faster. The PWA works by caching the data to make it fluent than the native apps.
  • PWA requires more battery consumption than native apps. The reason being that the PWA operates under a web browsing application (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge) so, they don’t have direct control over the battery.

Go for PWA if your needs follow these:

  • If you have just started with the online business because it is SEO friendly to reach the audience first.
  • Moreover, when getting started with a new business, there are tons of expenses. Going with PWA will help you with this factor as well.
