Purpose and scope

As a merchant, you want your identity and brand to be displayed through your eCommerce mobile app. Your Aphix PocketShop will be built with your colours, your logo and your content so that your company brand shines through.

After its release to the Google Play Store or Apple Store, you may want to make changes to it. Some of these changes, such as adding content to the latest news section or updating your banner set, you can do yourself in the Management Interface. Others you make need us to help you with. For example, if you change your logo and wish to update it in PocketShop, this may require the app to be re-built and re-distributed to your customers.
