PWA for eCommerce

Experimenting with new technology for an online marketplace can be scary, but should you be afraid of PWA?

Progressive Web App is the talk of the town, and the praises for its benefits have no end, yet, when it comes to investing in it, the cloud of suspicion forms in our head and gets stuck at one and the same point, “whether to invest or not?”

To meet the rising figures of mobile browsing audience, PWA turns out to be the best choice for all those running an online marketplace or eCommerce websites. Where smartphones have become the most convenient medium for people to carry out half of their chores like paying bills, transacting money, and the most essential – shopping, PWAs are like adding a cherry on the top.

An online marketplace that falls under the eCommerce umbrella, which is a website or an app that facilitates consumers to buy different types of products from different sellers, can be made pretty easy to use by implementing PWA into it. How? Let’s understand.

Why is PWA considered to be the latest next-gen technology for the eCommerce industry?

Downloading an app or browsing a website both have certain limitations, which Progressive Web App (PWA) technology overcomes with its impressive features.

For an eCommerce industry where the competition is always boiling high, it is crucial to keep in check the survival statistics continually. To end the space issues with a mobile app and loading issues of a website, PWA came out as a solution to both, combining the dynamic features of the regular website and mobile experience making mobile website fast and easy to access.

Developed as webpages, PWAs, therefore, has lower development and maintenance cost than any standard app. They don’t need to be updated manually every now and then and delivers improved performance, better user experience, and quite a bunch of benefits, which we will see below.
