The mobile app gives you the freedom to run an online business from anywhere. You need a WooCommerce app for the mobile device if you want freedom in managing your store. These apps will allow you to do admin works, reviewing store stats, add products to your store remotely, and much more.
These apps may have some restrictions, but they are helpful if you are a very mobile person. Here are seven recommended apps you can try for your WooCommerce platform.
WooCommerce Official App (iOS)
WooCommerce iOS app is both official and free, which is a great first step for your mobile business. This app has a limit of four stores per user, but it is already integrated with the new REST API system. You can use this app to review your store’s performance, including reviewing the statistics for products and purchases.
WooCommerce iOS app also shows purchase status in your store, such as “pending,” “held,” and “processing/processed” orders. You can also see a list of products that are sold the most. While the functions are still a bit limited, there are developments to expect in the future.
TM Store (Android and iOS)
If you use Android devices, you can try TM Store. This app is available for both Android and iOS and provides full store management experience. The app plugin is easy to install, and you can immediately use it. Activities to do with TM Store are, for examples uploading products, reviewing shop stats, processing purchases, and much more.
TM Store also has integrated marketing automation and SEO solutions, which you can use to promote your store. It also supports various plugins, such as Paypal, Apple Pay, WooCommerce Points and Rewards, Right-to-Left layout support, and much more.
WooSales is an app recommended for those who are not exactly “data-savvy.” This app is like the simpler version of the official WooCommerce app. Instead of graphs and complicated data, WooSales only gives main information in easy-to-read numbers and formats. You can find out about purchase amounts, new customers, average orders, and other sales-related info.
Since WooSales is simpler than the official app, more experienced users may find this app too limiting. However, if you just start in the e-commerce business, or only need to check store performance through mobile devices occasionally, WooSales is a good choice. This app is available for free at Apple App Store.
WooAdmin App (iOS)
WooAdmin is a WooCommerce app that performs in more sophisticated way. The app not only shows simple sales data but complete graphs about your store’s performance. You can see information such as numbers of sales, profits, and average sales. Furthermore, the app also shows details of taxes, refunds, and discounts, complete with both numbers and graphs as visuals.
Another great thing about WooAdmin is its ability to upload products right to your store. This way, you can manage your product supply remotely, albeit in the most basic way. You will need to have iOS 9.1 to run WooAdmin, but the app gives more sophisticated experience compared to simpler products.
The app costs USD3.99, and you can get it at Apple Store.

With this app, you can view information such as product stocks and prices, purchase amounts, order status, and such. The data are presented in clean and simple look, along with diagrams, which is good for the least data-savvy store owners.
WooCommerce Mobile Assistant is also great to help managing purchase. You can get notifications of new order and customer, stock status, or specific information like a canceled purchase. There is also filtering option for an easier way to manage products and find information.
