WhatsApp Carts

WhatsApp Carts lets users buy products via the chat app

WhatsApp shopping carts will be available all over the world, allowing you to send orders easily.

WhatsApp has implemented shopping carts for businesses, offering a new intuitive experience for users that allows companies to keep track of orders and increase their sales.

Buying stuff may be a feature we are all used to at most online stores, but the shopping cart hasn’t featured in WhatsApp messaging app until now. WhatsApp has quickly realized adding a cart made a lot of sense following the introduction of Catalogues, which allowed users to easily and quickly view what was available from a business using the app to promote their goods.

WhatsApp says:

“Starting today, we’re excited to bring carts to WhatsApp. Carts are great when messaging businesses that typically sell multiple items at once, like a local restaurant or clothing store. With carts, people can browse a catalog, select multiple products and send the order as one message to the business.

This will make it simpler for businesses to keep track of order inquiries, manage requests from customers and close sales.”

Customers using the WhatsApp Messenger app will be able to see a shopping button next to your business name in your chat or when they visit your business profile. Using this shopping button, they can browse your catalog and directly add items to their cart from your catalog.

They will also be able to edit the quantity of each item in their cart. Once added, customers will have the option to send the items in their cart to your business account as a WhatsApp message.
