Frequently Asked Questions
- What is Magento mobile?
- What versions is Magento mobile compatible with?
Magento Mobile is compatible with Community Edition 1.3 and higher, Enterprise Edition 1.6 and higher, and Professional Edition 1.8 and higher.
- How much does Magento mobile cost?
Magento Mobile is designed to dramatically reduce the costs to deploy a native commerce storefront. When you are ready to submit your iPhone app through the Magento Mobile admin, you need only pay a one-time $799 start-up fee, as well as a $699 annual maintenance fee. There is also a monthly-payment program available for $69/month. Magento manages the iTunes submission and ongoing iPhone code maintenance for you.
- Is the iPhone app source code available?
In the future, we will make our Magneto iPhone-app source code available to select partners and merchants. At this time, we are not distributing the source code.
- How does Magento mobile work?
You start off by installing the mobile admin, which is available free of charge, and use it to configure your app. Once you’re ready to submit an application through Magento mobile, you will be required to enter an “app key”, which you can purchase from the “plans and pricing” tab, or through your My Admin panel on this website (see ‘Magento Mobile’ in the left column after logging in). We take care of the process from there and notify you once your app is live in the iTunes app store.
- Why did Magento build this product?
Large online eCommerce players such as Amazon and eBay are now driving billions of dollars in sales through their native mobile applications. Native apps also have great features for brands to build relationships with customers.. Magento has always been at the forefront of positioning our community for success, and building a mobile product was the logical next step in order to help our 60,000+ stay ahead of the curve.
How long does it take to deploy an iPhone app through Magento mobile?
Once you submit your app to Magento, the timeline is subject to the iTunes app-store approval process, which can be between 2-5 weeks. In some circumstances, this process can be shorter.
- Can I change the branding & appearance of my app after it is live in the iTunes app store?
Yes. Anything under the “Design” tab in the Magento-Mobile admin can be updated even after your app is live, and users can view your changes without needing to install an update. However, any changes you make to the core app file, including your app icon, name, description, etc. will warrant a resubmission.
- What if I need to resubmit my app?
Any changes you make to the core app file, including your app icon, name, description, etc. will warrant a resubmission. Each resubmission is $99, and you can purchase resubmission keys from within the mobile admin (submission tab) after your first submission.
- Can I demo my app before I submit it?
At this time, there is an app-preview window within the Magento Mobile admin where you can demo your changes. In the future, we will release other product to preview your app.
- What creative assets do I need to prepare for Magento mobile?
You will need to produce 6 creative files for your mobile app:
Large App Icon: This is a 512×512 image, usually your brand logo, that will appear in the app store (it doesn’t appear in your app)
Small App Icon: This is the 57×57 pixel image that appears on users’ phones after they install your app. Apple automatically applies a gradient to this image.
Loading splash screen: A 320×460 image that appears while your app is loading
Header logo: 35×35 logo that appears in the header select pages within your app
Home-tab “promo” image: This is the first page/image users will see when your app loads. It is 320×227
Category background image: See the right-most image. The size is 320×367
(Optional) Product category thumbnails: Magento Mobile installs a new “image thumbnail” section within your catalog manager. The app will use your existing product-category images, but if you’d like them to appear in a way more tailored to the iPhone app, then utilize the “thumbnail image” setting within your Magento catalog admin and upload an 80×80 thumbnail.
