Businesses can also include different response buttons and product catalogs in WhatsApp messages.”
Sa Sa proactively integrates its offline and online businesses to deliver a customer-centric omni-channel shopping experience. Hong Li, Director of eCommerce of Sa Sa, mentioned that using Chatbot auto-reply feature of Chat Commerce has significantly reduced the response time of customer service, enabling the team to solve the problems of other customers, thereby increasing sales conversion rates. “During the last Lunar New Year and 3.8 International Women’s Day, we delivered game messages and exclusive coupons to customers via WhatsApp and Omnichat’s Chat Commerce platform.
