WhatsApp Makes Shopping Easier, Introduces Carts

Facebook-owned messaging platform, WhatsApp has introduced ‘carts’ feature aimed at making the shopping experience easier for consumers by buying multiple items from a business account.

“WhatsApp is fast becoming a store counter to discuss products and coordinate sales. Catalogs have allowed people to quickly see what’s available and helped businesses organize their chats around particular items. With more and more shopping happening through chats, we want to make buying and selling even easier,” WhatsApp said in a blog post.

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.

"Catalogs have allowed people to quickly see what’s available and helped businesses organize their chats around particular items. With more and more shopping happening through chats, we want to make buying and selling even easier," WhatsApp noted.

How To Use Carts:
