About the Binshops Free Mobile Application

This free eCommerce mobile application is a really Native Mobile Application that comes with a back-end. Binshops build system builds your native mobile app based on your build request each time (in average it take 4-5 minutes).

The back-end system is based on the PrestaShop eCommerce platform, and the only front-end API for PrestaShop. The REST API is a widely used solution for front-ends in PrestaShop, let's check the Binshops Postman.

Therefore, if you do not have a PrestaShop website, you can easily install it and set it up, but if you already have a PrestaShop website just go to the Binshops Panel and create your mobile app.

Does the Mobile Application Have Any Communication with Binshops Platform?

Not at all! Your mobile application communicates only with your shop (the provided URL while building the mobile app). Therefore, your mobile application does not connect to our servers and platform for any reason.
