After a long time, Apple today launched a new category on the App Store worldwide: Shopping (mall).
Your favorite shopping apps all in one place. Say hello to the newest category on the App Store. https://t.co/ZZ4nOwqLZT

The arrival of the new category that houses apps previously spread by Entertainment, Lifestyle, Finance, Business and others certainly has to do with the growing popularity of mobile ecommerce solutions, but it also serves to give special emphasis to services already compatible with the Apple Pay (still unavailable in Brazil).
In the Brazilian App Store, some of the apps relocated to the new category include Peixe Urbano, Dafiti, Magazine Luiza, AliExpress, Netshoes, Americanas, Submarino, Kanui, YOP, Tricae, Buscap, the Apple Store itself and much more.
It shouldn't be easy to rearrange it all
