In this article, we'll give you a brief overview of Shopney, how it works, and the pros and cons. We'll compare it to 5 different Shopney alternatives including our own platform, MobiLoud, which we believe is the ideal choice for serious businesses to convert web stores to professional eCommerce apps.

What is Shopney?

Shopney is a no-code, drag-and-drop app builder for Shopify eCommerce stores.

Now let's take a look at Shopney's pricing.

Shopney Pricing

Shopney has 4 tiers of pricing.

  • Silver: $99/mo
  • Gold: $199/mo
  • Platinum: $499/mo
  • Enterprise: $999/mo

Shopney offers integrations, features, and support starting from the Silver plan. Although it offers a limited number of mobile app themes and design element counts, it already includes unlimited rich push notifications and integrations like Google Analytics, Facebook Ads, and Facebook Messenger. The Gold plan gives access to more advanced notifications and integrations like scheduled push notifications, abandoned cart notifications, Yotpo, and many more. If you're aiming for more features, advanced integrations, and unlimited design elements count, you can opt into the Platinum plan. In this plan, you can also get exclusive service & support. Lastly, if you want multi-store support, custom integrations, dedicated design support, and a dedicated success manager, the Enterprise plan is for you.

Shopney Pros & Cons

On the positive side, Shopney is well-reviewed and has a solid suite of integrations, themes and features. For a simple app that has the same product catalogue as you site, it could be a good option.

On the downside, Shopney is a template-based app builder with all the limitations inherent in that. It will never be able to truly "convert" your site into iOS and Android apps, and you'll never be able to reuse all your plugins, existing themes, and features in the apps. Your store will have to fit their mould - which for more complex and unique eCommerce businesses can be a real problem.

While Shopney is a good platform, and has a good suite of integrations - for some users it will be a highly limiting (not to mention fiddly) and suboptimal choice.

Now we've had an overview of the tool, its pricing, and its pros and cons. It's time to move on and start looking at some Shopney alternatives, starting with our own site-to-app platform, MobiLoud.

Shopney Alternative #1: MobiLoud

MobiLoud powers thousands of top apps, and allows you to convert your site into native eCommerce apps in just days, for a fraction of the cost of custom development.

Our eCommerce app platform integrates with any CMS - whether it's Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop or any other - and let you reuse every plugin, feature and functionality from your main web store.

MobiLoud is the best way to convert your web store into native eCommerce apps for iOS and Android, as well as the best alternative to Shopney.

There are several key reasons why:

  1. No templates, no blocks, no APIs - we don't restrict you to our pre-built front-ends, we allow you to convert your web store completely, and to reuse all your existing plugins, themes, and tech stack.
  2. Keep what works - you already built your ideal site for the web, tweaking it endlessly for conversions and sales. With MobiLoud you can translate that directly into m-commerce native apps, without needing to reinvent the wheel. You already did the hard part, we handle the rest!
  3. Easy Management - many app builder platforms like Shopney gives you an extra CMS to manage, adding work for you and your team. Since MobiLoud apps sync with your web store in real time, this work is eliminated, you just need to keep managing and updating your store as usual, and if you want to change something specifically for the apps, use our easy no-code UI.
  4. Done for you - there's no need for you to fiddle, drag-and-drop, or waste time trying to set the apps up. You just need to tell us any special requirements, add some key information, and our team handle all technical aspects of the app build including submissions to Google Play and the AppStore.

MobiLoud Pricing

We have two standard pricing tiers:

  • Startup - For fast launching and validation: $170/month
  • Growth - Perfect for more established businesses: $382/month

We also have custom, corporate plan for more demanding projects. Read more about our pricing here.

The difference between MobiLoud and Shopney is clear.

With MobiLoud, unlike Shopney, you can completely convert your web store and reuse all your existing plugins and tech stack. We're not limited by a certain set of "integrations" we can hook up to APIs, because we can integrate anything. MobiLoud is the clear choice for more serious eCommerce businesses, not to mention more affordable and much better value for money than Shopney.

Now we've blown our own trumpet, here are a few other Shopney alternatives that you're likely to see around the web.

Shopney Alternative #2: Tapcart

Tapcart is a platform designed for businesses looking to create mobile apps specifically for Shopify. It eliminates the need for coding or technical expertise, making it a preferred choice for small and medium-sized eCommerce businesses.

Tapcart Pricing

Tapcart has three plans:

  • Core - 15 blocks, basic features, and basic integrations - $200/mo
  • Ultimate - unlimited blocks, advanced features, and integrations - $400/mo
  • Enterprise - unlimited custom blocks, dedicated customer success manager, and premium integrations - $1K/mo

The more costly the plan is, the better app features and benefits you get.

Shopney Alternative #3: Mowico

Mowico is another simple and easy-to-use app builder for online stores that doesn't require any coding. It works well with platforms like Shopify and WooCommerce and will soon be compatible with PrestaShop, BigCommerce, and Wix. It comes with useful features like Smile, Langify, and, and also offers push notifications and AR shopping. However, it's important to note that Mowico also has limitations. While it can create a basic eCommerce app with your products and logo, it cannot fully replicate the advanced features, design, and plugins of your existing web store. Instead of recreating your Shopify store entirely, it only pulls some relevant data from it. This means you are restricted to their pre-built integrations, which is restrictive compared to the web and MobiLoud.

Mowico Pricing

Mowico has three plans for each eCommerce platform. For Shopify, they have:

  • Startup - basic features - $79/mo
  • Growth - everything from Startup plus enhanced features - $399/mo
  • Enterprise - premium features, custom feature integrations, and tailor-made development - custom

The pricing may vary for each eCommerce platform but keep in mind that, the more costly the plan is, the greater benefits you get.

Shopney Alternative #4: Vajro

Vajro is a Shopify-focused drag-and-drop app builder known for its affordability and focus on smaller eCommerce apps. They use templates and drag-and-drop widgets to create branded apps that connect to Shopify through API. While user-friendly, some users may find the platform limits their ability to recreate their web stores accurately, even on higher-tier plans.

Vajro Pricing

Vajro has four plans:

  • Starter - basic features and integrations - $99/mo
  • Core - advanced features and integrations - $249/mo
  • Premium - premium features and integrations - $499/mo
  • Plus - premium features, integrations, and priority support - $999/mo

The more costly the plan is, the better app functionalities and benefits you get.

Shopney Alternative #5: is a capable eCommerce app builder for Shopify and WooCommerce businesses, with many plugins and third-party connections. On the downside - it's quite expensive and the reliance on pre-built blocks, templates, and widgets will limit you. Although there's some customization options, you won't fully replicate your web store due to its reliance on boilerplate front ends and standardized APIs. Pricing has two plans:

  • Pro - custom integrations, app launch assistance, and enterprise support - $1K/mo
  • Plus - everything in the Pro plan, and additional premium blocks, dedicated customer success manager, and priority support - $2K/mo +1% success fee

The more costly the plan is, the better app features and benefits you get.

Let's Build Your eCommerce Apps

We've looked at a few Shopney alternatives, and given you some key information about each.

As we've seen, many of these tools share the same fatal flaws. On the one hand - their reliance on blocks, themes, templates, and pre-built widgets does allow you to build and launch (some kind of) eCommerce app fast, affordably and easily compared to custom development. On the other, this same reliance puts you and your brand in a straightjacket.

It means that you will only ever approximate your web store, and you'll be forever at the mercy of whatever pre-built features they have as well as whatever data they can fetch via API (which can change). The apps will be a branded shell with some of your data pulled in and not much more.

While this is OK for simple stores is basic and small product ranges and features, this will almost always be a deal breaker for serious eCommerce brands. You probably have a finely-tuned tech stack, along with all the plugins, third-party integrations, and custom features you need to drive sales and revenue optimally. To discard all this hard work for cookie-cutter apps with your logo on will rarely make strategic sense.

That's why, although we're biased of course, we believe MobiLoud is not only the best Shopney alternative but a superior alternative to every eCommerce mobile app builder on the market.

The first key reason: we allow you to reuse everything from your site in the apps.

If it already works well on the mobile web, it'll be even better as iOS and Android apps. It makes no sense to ditch that winning formula and those painstakingly chosen tools just to compromise with restrictive templates. That's too much of downgrade from what you've already built, and with MobiLoud - unnecessary. Keep what already works.

The second core reason: it's so simple to manage MobiLoud apps.

Platforms like Shopney will often add hours per week to your workflow with effectively a new CMS to manage. In contrast - MobiLoud apps sync in real time with your site. There's no need to manually add new product lines, update pricing, or worry about keeping the apps up to date. The apps will reflect changes and updates to your site instantly.

This goes for any core changes you make to your site too. You can switch out plugins, pull off a major rebrand, or build whatever custom functionality you choose. It doesn't matter what it is - it'll work straight out of the box in the apps, which can grow with your brand into the future.

On top of this, our team handle any ongoing updates and maintenance needed as part of our service, along with all fiddly aspects of the app build and bringing them live to Google Play and the AppStore. We work with you to ensure your apps are a success, and we're only ever an email or phone call away.

MobiLoud allows you to combine the best of the web with the best of native apps. It's a winning formula, check out the success these eCommerce brands have had:

  1. Rainbow Shops
  3. Bestseller
  4. John Varvatos

Over 1000 other businesses have used MobiLoud to build winning apps - and you can too.

Unlike with Shopney, there's no risk. We don't do long-term contracts and we'll refund you if you're unhappy with the apps. If you're like most of our eCommerce customers - the apps will pay for themselves almost immediately.

It all starts with a call with one of our app experts, where we go over your exact requirements for the apps and answer your questions.
