Are you a Via Customers user, looking for an alternative platform to run your eCommerce app? Or are you about to start your mobile app journey and looking for the best options out there to help you do it?

Either way, this post is for you. We've got the best alternatives to Via Customers, to help you build an app for your eCommerce store, fast, affordably and efficiently.

What is Via Customers?

Via Customers is branded as a "unified SMS and mobile app platform for e-commerce."

Up until 2023, Via Customers provided an app builder that allowed Shopify store owners to turn their website into mobile apps.

However, as of November 2023, their service has been discontinued.

If Via Customers was on your radar, or you were a Via Customers user, you'll now be looking for an alternative platform.

Read on for the top five options available to you now, starting with our own website-to-app platform, MobiLoud.

Via Customers Alternative #1: MobiLoud

MobiLoud is the platform behind thousands of top apps, including many high-revenue eCommerce apps.

MobiLoud lets you convert your existing website into apps, with no rebuilding required. Everything on your site works the same in the apps, with mobile-specific features added such as native navigation and push notifications.

It gives your users a full native mobile experience, for a fraction of the time, cost and effort.

MobiLoud apps are fully synced with your website, leaving minimal work to maintain and update your apps. Whenever you update your website, the apps update at the same time.

On top of all that, everything is done for you. Our team configures and builds your apps (to your desired specifications), we test and publish them, submit them to the app stores, and handle all technical updates and maintenance after launch.

Our eCommerce app platform integrates with any CMS - whether it's Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop or any other - and even works with custom-built websites. It's easily the most effective way for any eCommerce store to launch an app today.

MobiLoud Pricing

We have two standard pricing tiers:

  • Startup - For fast launching and validation: $350/month, plus a one-time $1,500 setup fee
  • Growth - Perfect for more established businesses: $650/month, plus a one-time $2,500 setup fee

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

Why MobiLoud?

MobiLoud allows you to go way beyond the block-centric, limited apps that app builders restrict you to.

We let you fully recreate your current user experience in the app - with small tweaks for mobile that elevate the UX even more.

Everything that you rely on to make conversions on your website - plugins, integrations, design alterations, custom features - work the same in your app.

You'll never be able to translate all of this to your app if you use a block-based app builder.

Best of all, it requires very little work to maintain, unlike most apps, which double or triple your ongoing workload.

This makes it a no-brainer to try MobiLoud to launch your apps, with little to no risk or downside, and huge upside for revenue and retention.

Via Customers Alternative #2: Tapcart

Tapcart is a user-friendly app builder for Shopify, enabling businesses to create mobile apps without coding or technical expertise. It is well-regarded among small and medium-sized eCommerce businesses seeking a straightforward mobile app development process.

Tapcart Pricing

Tapcart has three plans:

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

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

Via Customers Alternative #3: Vajro

Vajro is a budget-friendly Shopify-focused drag-and-drop app builder, primarily catering to smaller eCommerce apps. Their platform relies on templates and drag-and-drop widgets to create branded apps linked to Shopify through API. However, due to the heavy reliance on templates, users will not be able to recreate their web stores accurately, even on higher-tier plans.

Vajro Pricing

Vajro has four plans:

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

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

Via Customers Alternative #4: Shopney

As a straightforward app builder for Shopify eCommerce stores, Shopney is known for its solid integrations, themes, and features. It could be a suitable option if a simple app mirroring your site's product catalogue is your aim. But its template-based operation can't fully convert your site into iOS and Android apps or leverage all your existing plugins, themes, and features. For complex and unique businesses, this will be a drawback, forcing your store to fit their set templates.

Shopney Pricing

Shopney has four plans:

  • Silver - basic features with flexible design - $99/month
  • Gold - basic features with flexible design with 20 elements - $199/month
  • Platinum - advanced features and unlimited design elements - $499/month
  • Enterprise - premium features and functionalities and a dedicated success manager - starting from $999/month

Via Customers Alternative #5: Appmaker.xyz

Appmaker.xyz is a reliable eCommerce app creator aimed at Shopify and WooCommerce brands, providing a variety of plugins and integrations. However, the cost is high and its dependency on blocks, templates, and widgets could be restrictive. Keep in mind, the customization offered can't fully copy your web store, a characteristic of platforms using prebuilt front ends and standardized APIs.

Appmaker.xyz Pricing

Appmaker.xyz has two plans:

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

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