How exactly does ShopWindow help me? Can I see a demo?

Selling on the social media is a trend that is growing up, in the same way that selling by online was 20 years ago: today everyone buys online, but at first it took time for people to cheer up.

ShopWindow helps you have this sales channel ready, and it manages all communication with your customers, management of your orders, and control of your product's stock with messages and notices: you will save a lot of time of management and organization if what you want is to invest time in what is important: sell !

For example, in the video below we show how "magic links" work, a link to your product that automatically triggers a sales conversation. Advantage:

  • The customer does not have to do anything special to let everything to happen.
  • The conversation begins with a focus on the specific article the customer clicked on.
  • The seller already has context about what the customer may want to know.
  • The checkout proccess is infinitely faster than a traditional virtual store.

Why ShopWindow over Facebook Shops?

  • ShopWindow works on any social app (TikTok, Twitter, Telegram, Youtube, Snapchat...) not just Facebook Universe (FB, IG, WA).
  • ShopWindow works with any payment method globally, Facebook doesn't.
  • ShopWindow supports appointment based business: sell 30 minutes consultation with a personal trainer, 1 hour language coaching... Facebook doesn't.
  • ShopWindow is friendly for non-techies: if you can post a selfie, you can use ShopWindow. Facebook setup interfaces are... Let's just say cumbersome.
  • ShopWindow helps selling over direct message (chat) super smoothly, Facebook doesn't cover this.
  • ShopWindow has sharing buttons enabled by default (in and out Facebook apps), meaning free promotion and exposure. Facebook charges you for promotion.
  • You can give your catalogues that personal touch to easily stand out, customizing your catalogue's look and feel, so you are not just another Facebook page.
  • Our checkout flow is optimized and works regardless your device, region and payment settings. Facebook's doesn't.
  • Our policies are more permisive than Facebook's (e.g.: you can sell digital products Facebook disallows that).
  • ...

On a deeper level if you care about these aspects: it's under your control, not Facebook's (getting banned, account locked out of the blue after you investing all the work for getting things going). You are our customer and we will take care of everything working for your business, good luck calling Facebook asking for support or asking them for some feature you are missing...

To make a long story short, we aim to be a serious, fully-fledged solution for the specific use case of selling within social apps, allowing people and businesses to sell right there in a professional manner, not needing any technical expertise, help from 3rd parties and keeping people's business under their control, not under Facebook's.
