E-commerce is big business. Forty percent of worldwide Internet users have bought goods online, either through their desktops or mobile devices. That’s approximately one billion people! To reach shoppers nowadays, many of whom use mobile devices, you’ve got to have a great mobile app. We’ve rounded up ten of the most innovative – read on to learn what makes them stand out.

Wish

Wish is an online marketplace that lets you browse a selection of trending fashion, accessories, and electronics.

What’s really innovative about it is that the app personalizes what merchandise you see based on your browsing history.

Asos

One of the things that bugs people about the e-commerce experience is providing a great deal of information to either register to use the site or sign into the shopping cart. The British fashion retailer Asos has made that a thing of the past.

When you first sign into the app, it saves your information. So, when you’re ready to buy, you don’t need to enter anything else (no matter how many purchases you make).

Wanelo

Wanelo is a combination of the words “want, need, love.” The app aims to provide users with a selection of products that will meet those three criteria.

Like Wish, it’s a marketplace, but what sets it apart is that when you use it, you see a stream of products posted by other users. You can follow your favorite stores and people or see a customized feed.

Amazon

When you think of e-commerce, Amazon is most likely the first thing that comes to mind. This site was one of the first online marketplaces, and it’s still the most successful.

What makes its mobile app so great? Among other things, it notifies you about deals from vendors near you based on your location.

Spring

Spring is another online marketplace… of sorts. It’s a curated community of brands from luxury labels and emerging designers.

To buy, all you have to do is swipe an item to buy it directly from the vendor. There’s no shopping cart.

Peach

Like eBay, but want a more exclusive experience? Peach is for you.

The app holds nine minute long, private auctions for designer products with discounts of up to 80%. You’ll always pay the second highest offer.

Walmart

Walmart and e-commerce don’t seem like a natural pairing. But, the app has several standout features.

There’s a price match tool, a prescription reorder tool, and a price scanner for when you’re at the store.

Product Hunt

Are you always on the lookout for the next big thing? Product Hunt is for you.

The app identifies new (mostly tech) products every day. You can curate your favorite finds, too.

The Hunt

If you’ve always wanted a personal shopper, The Hunt is for you.

Post a photo of what you’re looking for, and a community of shoppers will help you find it (sometimes for less).

Threadless

Want to be a designer, but didn’t make it onto Project Runway? Check out Threadless.

Users post designs for shirts and hoodies. The community votes on them, and the most popular products get sold.
