Here at Shopgate, we’re obviously big believers in the modern retail solution that is the mobile app. However, we also recognize that an app that simply makes a sale is quickly going out of style.
That’s why we aim to connect with some of the newest and brightest technology and solutions partners in the world. We are constantly expanding the reaches of our app platform, working toward our goal of truly limitless connectivity across the eCommerce world. We aim to give retailers the freedom to use as many extensions and integrations as they deem necessary, in the simplest ways possible.
So who are some of our favorite partners? We’re excited you asked, because we were going to introduce them to you anyway!
Affirm Monthly Payments
With Affirm Monthly Payments, a high price tag doesn’t have to exclude your clients who don’t want to drop a lot of cash at once. By integrating your Shopgate app with Affirm, you provide your users the option to make monthly payments on items they might not normally be able—or willing to—consider purchasing. The customer-facing transaction happens entirely through Affirm, so you get paid upfront and everything else is taken care of for you.
Intercom Live Chat
Intercom Live Chat is an in-app communication tool that allows you to provide direct customer service, human-to-human, without requiring your customer to close the app. It’s designed to be a simple messenger that only requires chatting and nothing else—no complicated surveys, emails, or customer service hotlines. You also get to make all of the decisions about how your app uses Intercom. Do you want customers to summon your assistance, or do you want to automatically prompt them to ask for help? Do you want to assign customer service employees based on the problem within the app? These decisions allow you to fully utilize your most knowledgeable customer service providers and create happier customers.
AdScanner is an invaluable marketing tool that allows you to connect your paper advertisements to your app. If you print advertisements on fliers, catalogs, packaging materials, or any other paper medium, you can equip those ads to seamlessly transfer your customers into a digital shopping experience. Simply tell your customers to scan the ads with the app, and they can immediately pull up the products and offers you’ve advertised. This eliminates their need to browse and search for the products that caught their eye.
Adeo Web has provided eight years of successful eCommerce solutions with a proven technical and analytical approach. They specialize in Magento application integration, acceleration, search optimization, and product data management.
