The new push notification module will allow Made4Fighters to use the app to engage more deeply with their best customers by announcing new arrivals, sales, and special app-specific specials.

According to Forrester, mobile apps convert sales at a rate of 6%, a rate far-higher than mobile website browser sessions (around 2%). Because of this, retail apps are increasingly seen as a must-have for progressive online merchants looking to engage with their customers on a deeper level and lift mobile conversion rates.
As a Certified BigCommerce solution provider, Unbound’s app solution leverages and extends the current e-commerce data, pricing, product images, etc, into the apps. App orders placed flow back into the BigCommerce system, and are tracked as app-specific sales to allow for ROI calculations.
