Chatbots are more than just a new channel for consumers to find deals and make e-commerce purchases. From handling customers to solving their queries, e-commerce chatbot enables customers to buy products straight from the chat. E-commerce platforms require quick and prompt customer support services, and your FAQ section or live chat agent can’t meet these needs effectively every time. Chatbots can handle these responses anytime, anywhere.
