First mobile E-commerce solution connected to Facebook Ads and Google
We as a Facebook Marketing Partner company have experienced neverending struggles with Facebook and Google integration on side of our partners. It usually took weeks or months to implement all neccessary SDKs, features, measurements and events. That's the reason why we have decided to provide an open-source solution bringing marketing on the first place. Our mission is to fulfill all potential of Facebook Ads, Google Analytics and other marketing channels for an extraordinary mobile shopping experience.

Do you want to see the app in action?
We are trying to minimize the effort necessary to ship your ecommerce mobile solution. The first step for a successful integration is connection between your data source and our server. There is prepared a standardized apiary.io documentation which will tell you how to output your XML feed to be compatible with the data the app is expecting. For more information on how to connect to our server please contact us.
OpenShop.io uses Gradle as a dependency manager for OpenShop.io Android project. To run the project please follow these steps:
Here you will find the PSD template which served as the guideline for implementing user interface in the OpenShop app.

Analytics - To measure conversions or application usage and installs from the campaigns you can use implemented Google Analytics or Facebook Analytics inside
Analytics class. This class serves as the proxy for different loggers.
Fabric (Crashlytics) - As Rocky Balboa once said: "The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.". And let's face it. Every app can get hit pretty hard and crash. But it's about how you can analyze the crash and fix it. That's the reason why we are using Crashlytics to analyze the bugs that made the application crash. Take a look at their Get started guide and when you are done there are two blocks of code in the
MyApplication class which will make the integration easier.
The application is written with the help of widespread libraries, so the source code should be easy to read. If you wish to make more significant changes and better understanding what's going on we are providing in-depth comments inside the code.
Don't you have your mobile development team? We totally understand that pain, when your IT department is super busy or you don't have your own in-house mobile development team. We will connect you with one of our integration partners to build the app for you. Just contact us.
