Mobile iPhone, iPad, Android, and HTML5 eCommerce: MobiCart
With the launch this month of MobiCart's ecommerce platform for Android devices, MobiCart provides app developers and business owners with sufficient technical expertise the ability to develop and launch complete ecommerce solutions for iOS Apple devices and Android. Designed to work with a new ecommerce store or an existing ecommerce Web site, MobiCart is an excellent choice for a mobile commerce application.
Currently, over 10,000 businesses use MobiCart for ecommerce, from small one-person operations to large global brand names, so scaling is not an issue. Like many app development tools, MobiCart uses a mix of both native and Web app content, supporting iTunes and Google Play listings, while using Web linked content and commerce features to enable easy item management and commerce connections. API connectors are available for Prestashop, Magneto, OXID-eSales, X-Cart, and JShop at this time, enabling existing ecommerce sites using these platforms to integrate mobile and Web commerce. For anyone starting Web commerce, I would look at using one of these tools to allow for easy connection to MobiCart. In addition, PayPal is a supported payment gateway.
Source code is provided for customization in Apple's X-Code and the Android SDK tools, so native app features can be added by developers. The standard features, however, are very extensive. These include a dashboard portal, Content Management System, HTML5 support, open API, and the ability to develop and sell add-ons, as well as a planned white label plan for developers.

All of these are usable in the mobile version, without a need to use a separate Web commerce solution.
App Building Process
All plans except the Pro plan include MobiCart branding within the app. There is no setup fee. Annual payment discounts are available on all paid plans.
For any mobile app that is heavily ecommerce focused, MobiCart offers a quick and low-cost hosted solution for both iOS and Android.
