Entrepreneurs usually multitask and like to remain in control of their businesses in order to run them effectively. Responding fast is essential for businesses to compete in fierce competition for customers. Shopify offers a variety of inherent Apps that make it possible.
On the go, Shopify can be used in several ways to run a business.
1. In Shopify, you can enable push notifications to receive an alert every time an order is placed with your store.
The Shopify app badge icon shows the number of open orders for one store only.
With an Android phone, you can still receive the push notifications with SMS, but the app badge icon is not available as yet.
2. The Shopify Mobile App is the complete store on mobile. Store owners can manage their online stores with the Shopify Mobile App, which allows them to:
- Fulfill, refund, or archive orders for each of your store locations
- Print packing slips and shipping labels

- View fraud analysis

Adding shortcuts to Siri for sales, visitors and orders is another cool feature of the App Settings on mobile.
