Ecommerce Chatbot Reviews

Ecommerce Chatbot Customer Experiences

The ecommerce chatbot is the first point of interaction that a customer might have with your brand. So it’s pretty important that you put your customer at the center of their experience. This applies equally to ecommerce mobile app, in-store signage, telephone customer hotline or the chatbot.

Why we review e-commerce chatbots

To understand how customers and bots interact we have been playing with a number of ecommerce chatbots. We have been pretty tough on these shopping chatbots because we wanted to know when the customer experience breaks. We see the breakpoints when the bot stops understanding or is unable to provide service.

If you have any bots you’d like us to put through their paces and include in our ecommerce chatbot reviews, drop us a line at ez@firstretail.com and tell us how to find the chatbot.
