The Free Progressive Web Apps for Magento 2 (PWA) are web apps that apply modern web capability to deliver an amazing app-like experience on the mobile web to your users. More specifically, when the customers visit your site for the first time, they will be invited to use the Progressive Web App by adding it to their home screen – just one click, no complicated installation required. Then, it will open a door of great experience with the accelerated loading speed, even the on the flaky network, useful push notifications, instant access on homescreen, and so on. In fact, the users are accessing your website that acts and feels like an app. As a result, your customer experience will be enhanced, more traffic will be driven, conversions are boosted and sale volumes will go sharply for sure. 



  • Lighting load speed: For users, they don’t need to go app store for either installation or updates. For developers, they can cut time for app submitting and approval. As a result, the PWA can be released anytime and in any form.

  • Useful push notifications: Thanks to the push notifications feature, it’s easy to notify your customers of news and promotions. According to several surveys, the open rates of push notification are even more feasible than that of email marketing.

  • Convenient offline mode: One of the most special features of the PWAs is the ability to work without an internet connection. Why? The Service Workers will cache the information when the device is online and therefore are able to display it at any time even when the connection is uncertain or vanished.

  • Quickly add to home screen: When the customers visit your site, they will be invited to add the PWAs to their homescreen with one single tap. Due to the presence on the homescreen, it wisely reminds users to return to your app.

  • Searchable by search engines: Since the Progressive Web Apps for Magento 2 have the same structure as the websites, they can be optimized, searchable by search engines and shared via URLs as well.

  • Easy installation and updates: Similar the usual web pages, the Progressive Web Apps can be updated at ease once the page is refreshed.

  • No central download store: For users, they don’t need to go app store for either installation or updates. For developers, they can cut time for app submitting and approval. As a result, the PWA can be released anytime and in any form.



Like other extensions, what you need to do is just install the extension and make some simple module configurations (please follow our installation and user guide strictly). The important thing is that your site must have an SSL or TLS certificate (being HTTPs) so as to prevent snooping and ensure your content hasn’t been tampered with. 

Last but not least, the PWA for Magento 2 is a modern technology that all Magento e-commerce stores should apply. Especially, if you can't afford to build a native app, this can be a good alternative.
