Enable your customers to purchase products directly from Facebook Messenger and track how much revenue you make. Create Convos that recommend products and collections, offer one-time notification opt-ins, add trained responses, add links to your store and more! This is a great and engaging way to increase the value of people talking to your bot.
There are two ways to use this feature
- Add products or collections into a Convo, one-time notification, flow or trained response. This shows a specific product or products that the user can buy, right from the bot.
- Simply link to your store in a Convo, one-time notification, flow or trained response and we'll track how many people buy because of that link.
How do I add products or collections into a Convo?
First, your bot must be connected to your Shopify store. In order to include a product or collection in a Convo, click on the Add media button in Convo Editor and choose the "Add product" option:
Search and select the product or collection you wish to include in your Convo:
The product will be added to your Convo like this within the conversation:
Or a collection will be added in a carousel as shown below. You can edit or refresh the carousel using the Edit and Refresh buttons.
After your Convo is published, your bot subscribers will be able to purchase products directly from your bot:
If your product has multiple variants the customer will be shown the different variants and allowed to choose between them when they click to buy.
Choosing a specific product variant
If you wish to display only one variant of the product you can go to convo editor and select that variant by clicking on the Variants button and selecting the one you wish to display:
Adding multiple products
If you wish to add multiple products you simply click on Add item button and add next product:

Can products be added to other campaigns as well?
Of course, you can easily add products to other campaigns like e.g. Custom Flows or Smart responses. Just find the Add Product icon in the Add Content section:
Can I just add a link to the product that will lead to product page or home page on my store?
Sure, if you want to do that simply add button with the link to the page like this:
Or add Custom carousel.
- If you use a URL shortener our revenue tracking won't work and in that case sold items won't be added to Bot Sales Stats.
- Images of the product are automatically cropped when you add them in the convo, we check the images from the store and if they are for example square we use the square image option for the carousel of products.
