New Feature: WhatsApp Checkout

It's never been more important for eCommerce brands to offer a world class mobile shopping experience.

Over 1.6 billion people use mobile devices to make purchases, and by 2021, mobile ecommerce sales are expected to account for 54% of total ecommerce sales.

That's why we've launched WhatsApp checkout! 

WhatsApp checkout is changing the game for direct selling companies.

No longer do your customers need to order products over the phone, via email or have a consultation in person.

No longer will your reps have to reuse old catalogs that might be damaged or just incredibly out of date.

And, no longer will they have to drive from house to house and risk getting stuck in traffic and missing out on a sale.

It can all be done directly from your online catalog, over WhatsApp.

With 1.5 billion users, WhatsApp supports 60 languages and is used in 180 countries around the world. There's a huge market to tap into by enabling WhatsApp checkout.

And it's not just customer's that reap the rewards of an easy checkout. As more of the younger generation are pursuing a career in direct selling, it's a natural and easy system for them to work with and streamlines their sales process.

So how does it work?

When integrated, shoppers can add products to basket as they flick through the catalog. Then, when ready to checkout, their basket is sent directly over WhatsApp to their local rep.

The rep is then immediately notified of their order and can confirm when it will arrive.
