Welcome to Shopgate!

In this quick guide series, we will walk you through the necessary steps towards building a beautiful and functional mobile shop.




Thanks to Shopgate's plug-n-play technology, creating a mobile shop is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Install & configure the Shopgate plugin
  2. Verify the software connection
  3. Check the products in your mobile shop





1. Install & configure the Shopgate plugin

The Shopgate technology creates customized apps and mobile website by "plugging" into your online store.

All you need to do is installing a Shopgate plugin or app in your shopping cart system. Here are the instructions:

2. Verify the software connection

The software connection is key to having a healthy mobile shop.

After the plugin or the app is installed and configured, a connection is established between your desktop shop and your mobile shop. Via this connection, important information* such as products, orders, accounts etc. is exchanged.

* Availablity varies depending on your shopping cart system. Please refer to the instructions above for more details.

To verify the connection, click the VERIFY button on the right.



3. Check the products in your mobile shop

Once connected, your apps and mobile website will start to receive products. To check your products, click the VIEW button on the right.

If you don't see any products, trigger a product import manually or read this troubleshoot guide. It could take hours to finish importing your products.
