No website app? No Problem! Here's what I did
If you're like the majority of people who are asking if there is an app for this marketplace, there isn't, but there is a way to use some other apps and systems to make your notification system come directly to your smartphone. Yes, it does take a little tinkering and adding a URL here and there, but that's not a big deal if you're serious about selling on this platform.
An app makes the website feel more like it's connected to your mobile device and not just a site that is online. You can still go to the marketplace and browse anything you want to because the code is super responsive, but a lot of people want an app to click on, so they don't have to type the domain into their browser and start from there.
An app takes a step or two out of the equation, but in today's lifestyle that is cumbersome, which is why my little trick will help you out
Website Shortcut App
There is an app that allows you to add shortcuts to the screen of your mobile device. You can go to the play store and search "Website Shortcut," and you will see a few there. I went with the one that was literally named "Website Shortcut" and I'm glad I did.
Here's what it looks like in the store:
All you do is add the URL, Name, and Thumbnail image.
When creating a shortcut, you can add literally any URL and thumbnail you want. I like using various shortcuts for websites I'm frequently on, and you can do the same if you're a seller, but it's really up to you lol.
As you can see, I even have a shortcut to a 1-hour loop of Baby Shark because I have a toddler who loves it. I was sick of opening YouTube, looking for the 1-hour loop version, and then playing it. Now I click on the shortcut and it auto plays. My son even figured this out and now takes my phone and clicks on the shortcut all by himself lol. Since I have YouTube set to open in the app for every video on that platform, it works very well for my purposes and keeps me from pulling out my hair when my son is losing his mind.
Pair with IdealMikes response method
What got me thinking about my shortcut was Mikes trick to getting notifications to his mobile device. I've been using my shortcut trick for a long time and recently paired it with Mikes method to decrease my response time. Let me tell you, this pairing works like a charm and helps out a ton if you're a seller.
Mikes method helps you get notifications right to your mobile device, almost immediately, and you can then login and respond to anyone that has left a comment on your orders or pretty much anything you get notified for.

I won't go into detail too much because Mike wrote out a discussion for it already, so I'll give you bullet points.
What you can do with Mikes response time trick:
- Ability to update your orders within an hour of them being ordered/updated by the buyer.
- Ability to update your orders within an hour of any update by your buyer.
- Ability to leave your rating within an hour of the buyer completing/rating it.
- Ability to reply to all questions/comments left on your service comments area.
If you want an app for this marketplace, you'll need to pair up my trick with Mikes, and you will essentially have everything you need that an app can provide. Since the marketplace is responsive, you won't have any problem loading it on your mobile device, and if you're using my trick to use shortcuts then you'll get to the desired page immediately without having to open your browser and type in the URL of where you're trying to go
