What's New With Shopify for iPhone

What's New With Shopify for iPhone


At Shopify, we’re always working to take our products to the next level. Today we’re excited to announce Shopify for iPhone version 3.4 – with more added features and functionality than ever. We’ve updated the dashboard design, added new product management features, and made it easier to run multiple stores on your phone.

As always, the app let’s you:

  • Get push notifications to your phone every time a new order comes in.
  • Send shipping notifications to customers right from the post office.
  • Fulfill an order from your car, a coffee shop, or the airport.
  • Call or email a customer in one easy step.

But now we’ve made Shopify for iPhone even better. Keep reading for all the details.

Update 1: New Dashboard

Tracking trends in your sales is a great way to see what’s working and what isn’t, so that you can tweak your business strategies accordingly. Shopify for iPhone now lets you track your shop’s progress by the week or month, giving you a bigger-picture look at how your store is doing.

We’ve also updated the dashboard to reflect Shopify 2 – the brand new Shopify admin that’s in beta now. This faster, more intuitive mobile dashboard lets you monitor the status of your store on the go, while being remarkably similar to your new desktop admin.

Update 2: Edit Products

Shopify for iPhone v3.4 makes it possible to edit products from your iPhone. You can add new products on the go by heading to the product list from the main menu and tapping the add button. You can also update inventory numbers for all your product variants directly from the detail screen.

Additionally, it’s now possible to take and upload product photos right from your phone. Add photos to new or existing products, and easily change their order by dragging to rearrange.

Update 3: Multiple Accounts

The iPhone app now supports numerous accounts: you can run more than one shop on your iPhone. For example, if you have 3 Shopify stores, you can manage all 3 from the same iPhone app. It’s easy to add a new account right from the settings screen.

Additionally, your shop can be managed from multiple phones. Your employees can download the app and use their iOS devices to run your store the same way they would with staff accounts on the desktop admin.


Shopify for iPhone makes it easier than ever to run your store on the go. And as always, the Shopify for iPhone App is completely free.

    Thats great, especially since i stopped using the iphone since the 3g model. Instead of iphone updates can we have a version for android?? Seems pretty standard in 2013

    I would love to be able to create discount codes on the go! Is that on the horizon?

    have downloaded the IPAD version, wish the format were better. But what about those true blue Canadians who have a Blackberry 10! or any other BB!

    Love Shopify but I don’t understand why the metrics aren’t relevant to running a real business – Year to date / Month to date… no one really tracks “last 30 days” in financial reporting. Can we make the statistics relevant to running a company? You used to have the ability to view the sales for a select number of days…that was one of your best features but you got rid of it for some reason?

    SteveH: We want to get an Android app out there. Right now, we have some other projects that we’re excited to launch before then. Android in 2013 is as important to you as it is to us.

    Tyler: Thanks for the feedback. It would be great to have all features from the web in the app but we’re really trying to first focus on the core features that the majority of our storeowners need on the go.

    Just looking at it now. The new dashboard is very nice, and useful. Great work!

    One feature that would be helpful would be if the page for an individual order had the referring website or keyword. For my marketing, I always want to know how customers found my products.

    Would be nice to see the top 10 referrals in the app, rather than the top two. Otherwise great improvement on the last one and a lot easier to manage business flow www.afinepairofshoes.co.uk

    the dashboard is really intermittent at the moment, both on phone and on the back end via chrome.

    My “orders open” pane at the bottom left seems to be stuck…orders have been fulfilled but it still says that I have open orders…any clues?

    The Apps great I use it all the time, but it would be great if the conversion rate was shown as you scroll through day, week and month.

    iPhone is designed in such a fine level whose user interface is perfect and resolution can not be compared.

    i love the app but in my business time and speed is very important to us when it comes to completing orders and find that the app not having sound on order notifications doesn’t help one bit.
