Thoughts and musings from the MobiCart HQ

Take a sneak peek at MobiCart V2

We’re super-excited to announce that we’ve hit the half-way mark and are well on our way to launching MobiCart V2.

At MobiCart HQ, we’ve been busy working away on creating a new and enhanced m-commerce app builder that offers you a sleek new look and host of additional features to keep your customers engaged.

The long-awaited MobiCart V2 is set to be released in the third quarter of this year and from now until then we will be treating you to a monthly sneak peek at how things are coming along.

Today, you can take a look at the list of features that we have been working on to help boost the MobiCart experience.

Wladimir Baranoff-Rossine, MobiCart CEO and founder, said: “We are half way through the development of MobiCart V2 and we’re pleased that we can start showing what we have been up to. This is a complete new bit of software that will take mobile commerce to a whole new level.”

There will be a slight increase in pricing for MobiCart v2 to reflect the premium features. However, if you sign up before August 1st, you will remain on the current pricing structure for the lifetime of your plan.

You can take a look at the new feature list below and stay tuned for next month’s update when we’ll be sharing our new iPhone interface screens.

    What I don’t see in the long list of features is a gift card message and shipping/delivery date option. If they are in this release, thank you! If not, please seriously consider adding them – many items purchased on-line are gifts that are shipped/delivered to someone else.

    • Wladimir Baranoff-Rossine March 8, 2013 at 9:22 am

      Thank you for your feedback. A gift card message is included as you can create custom options. As for the delivery, you will be able to ship any order to any address you like as we also support multiple delivery addresses.

        But a delivery date is essential for some businesses such as florists – birthdays and anniversaries are two good examples.

    What about UPS shipping option? This is the major carrier and I dont see you support. What about customers like me only use UPS what should we do?

  7. Wladimir Baranoff-Rossine April 4, 2013 at 8:08 am

    Thank you for pointing that out Sam as UPS is being included but it seems it was missed from the above list. I’ll get this added right away as we are busy working on this.
