Integrate WooCommerce Chatbot to Your Online Stores

We’re living in the Chatbot boom era. They have already taken-over major marketing activities that are time-consuming and tedious for human employees. Today, chatbots are effectively running social media campaigns, sending bulk emails, and sharing content on Facebook Messenger without any human oversight.

This chatbot trend is increasingly visible on most eCommerce platforms like Shopify and WooCommerce. The advantage of using WooCommerce chatbots is that they are available 24/7 and filter out the everyday conventional queries that would otherwise hold up the support agents’ time.

For those who ain’t aware of WooCommerce yet or plan to start an online store but don’t know “how”, we’ve further explained in brief about WooCommerce and why WooCommerce chatbots are beneficial for your eCommerce store.

What is WooCommerce?

WooCommerce isn’t any standalone site builder. Instead, WooCommerce is an open-source WordPress plugin. Being an open-source plugin, it is FREE to install and use. WooCommerce basically transforms your plain and simple WordPress site into a fully-functional eCommerce site.

It helps you sell products and services from your WordPress site. Also, you can add multiple add-ons to extend your site’s functionality as and when needed. Similarly, WooCommerce chatbots can add real value to your eCommerce stores as they –

  • Can attract more potential customers and convert them into leads
  • Can handle multiple customers together without slowing down or hampering any user experience.
  • Offer personalized recommendations to users and price checks for loyal customers
  • Improves customer-brand interaction by providing them with product suggestions considering their requirements.
