The representatives can answer specific questions in real time as customers shop. This is a great way to connect with your customers, take advantage of up-selling opportunities, recommend and link to products, provide a personalized customer support, and much more. When one customer decides to make a purchase, the whole process including the transaction is done on Messenger. This saves a lot of time and eliminates the extra step of finding a payment processor or a website to complete the transaction.
In order for your customers to start shopping on Facebook Messenger, the customers have to start a conversation with you and click on the “Shop Now” button. A product catalog will be launched and your customers can start browsing. If they want to make a purchase, they have to click on the buy button, add their payment information, and complete the purchase. The Shopify checkout portal is integrated into Facebook messenger and this makes the process hassle-free for both sales representatives and customers.
A great benefit of using this service is that it makes it super easy for customers to stay in touch with businesses and the sales representatives after they have purchased an item. It doesn’t really matter whether they are looking for a shipping update, an extra information about new products, or something else, they can contact Shopify businesses as simple as contacting friends on Messenger.
The businesses that are interested in presenting their entire product catalog and sell on Facebook have the option of launching an online store. You can launch your own online store from the Facebook page. The Shopify Facebook Store integration allows sellers to create a tab on their business page and make it super accessible for visitors to shop from the Facebook application. This process works by syncing items that are already available on Shopify online store. The businesses that are without an online store, can upload items by using the Shopify dashboard and launch the Facebook-powered storefront.
In order for you to use Facebook messenger for direct sales or you want to create a Facebook Page, you need to be a Shopify user and have your own business Facebook Page.
