Abandoned Cart Reminder

Problem: Almost a whopping 70% of shopping baskets will never ever make it to checkout. Solution?

Back-in-Stock Notifications

Problem? Having demand is good, but not having inventory to meet it is a nightmare. A great solution to this loss is to have customers subscribe to your chatbot for back-in-stock notification. At the same time, you are then free to advertise other products, sales, and more.
