Additionally, Apple’s recently announced Apple Pay service is available through 11 Main’s mobile application, giving shoppers with iPhone 6, iPhone 6+, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 a convenient way to make purchases.
Echoing 11 Main.com’s clean and elegant design, the mobile applications offer shops the ability to elevate their brands to shoppers. Shop owners are able to showcase their individuality and tell the stories behind their shops and products within the application’s design. Shop pages are customizable, giving shoppers visual insight to a shop’s brand.
“As a small business owner, I wear many hats. Creating the intuitive and alluring mobile shopping experience 11 Main offers without any upfront investment would have been nearly impossible to do on my own,” says Ianthe Mauro, owner of the 11 Main shop Objects with Purpose. “Through 11 Main, I’m not only able to reach more conscientious shoppers on the Web, I also have extended reach and visibility with mobile shoppers.”
