It's easy to use and you can complete designing your app in minutes without writing a single line of code. Get Swipecart on your Shopify app store or the WordPress plugin. Install and start using it right away.

  • The first step to building an Hepsiburada-like app is to create an app layout. In the Swipecart dashboard, click on "Layouts" in the left menu.
