Merging digital and offline worlds

After allowing entrepreneurs and small businesses to sell inside the world’s biggest apps with its In-App Commerce Platform, ChatGenie is now going full circle by merging the best of digital and offline worlds with In-Store Commerce Use Cases as part of our partnership with Strive Community. As lockdowns lifted and customers began to resume shopping in stores, using the platform for In-Store Commerce enables customers to create pre-orders, pay for transactions, and pick up orders themselves, merging online selling with offline events. Customers can also simply scan the store’s unique QR code and make their orders in store. Soon, customers will be able to scan QR codes to obtain vouchers within the store in the same way they can apply vouchers on online marketplace apps.

Reducing frictions for small businesses selling online

ChatGenie continues to work to fulfill its goal to empower Filipino entrepreneurs to sell smarter online. In addition to our In-Store Commerce Use Cases, and through our partnership with Strive Community, we’re bringing additional value to micro-enterprises engaging in social commerce in the Philippines with three new features: a service booking bundle, a point-of-sale feature with pay links, and a GCash Store Launcher Shopify App.
