  • Hai
    Hello, I currently has a website with Opencart . Can I use this app same with my current site ( synchronize data between app and site )
    • Subhangi (Moderator)
      This module is compatible with Opencart Version 3.0.x.x. Yes, you can use this app the same as your website.
      Note- Only the default feature of Opencart will work with the module. If you are using any other extension on your website, then, in that case, we need to make that extension compatible with the Opencart mobile app builder.
      • Peter Rhee
        I am using Journal template and your Mobile app fully compatible with this extention? Can you advise me how is working (Functional) your APP? I hope to you to understand what is my point of questions.
        • Subhangi (Moderator)

          Hello Peter,

          Journal theme is the front end theme of the OpenCart website.

          The app does not rely on the website front end theme.

          The app, on the whole, is based on the OpenCart framework and has features as listed on the product page –

          All the products, categories, and orders will be in sync with your OpenCart website.

          In addition to this, we do provide time free configuration of the mobile application, wherein we will change the branding of our demo application and colors as well so that it suits your website, web design, and branding.

          Thanks & Regards,

          Webkul Team
