By Live Commerce (or Live Stream Shopping), we refer to video content that allows viewers to purchase products and services straight from the live video experience. When clicking a button within the video, a product is added to the shopping cart.
The live commerce experience allows you to go live in front of your community, engage with them, and make your products and services available for purchase. Straight from the video experience. It’s live, authentic, and digitally recreates the in-store shopping experience.
You can edit your channel’s name from Dashboard. After login, select the channel for which you want to change the name. Press the big, blue button: Live Start. Once you hit this button, the system will take you to the settings page. Here, in the upper part of the screen, you have the name of the channel. Select it and customized it as you would like. But please remember that there is a 59 characters limit.
Creating a new channel is as easy as possible. From your Dashboard, select the blue ‘ADD NEW’ button.
After selecting this option, you just need to select the date of your live shopping session. Or, if the case, to create it as a permanent channel. That’s it, now all you need is to personalize your channel and you are ready to go live.
No coding is required when using Streams.live. Our solution allows you to go live with just a few clicks of a button. You can use your own device’s camera or a third-party video editing software without writing a single line of code.
Even the more advanced options, like embedding the whole experience into your website, need a simple copy and paste action.
No, Streams.live will not take a percentage from your total sales. Our solution works on a subscription model, so your sales will not be affected by our pricing plan.
Our solution facilitates product sales straight from the video, but we will not ask you to pay a percentage out of your total income. You can sell as many products as possible without paying us more than the subscription plan that you opted for.

First, you need to create an account on Oveit, our event registration software. You can follow these guidelines to create a new event with Oveit. Once you create the event, log in to Streams.live using the same access credentials for your Oveit account. To create a session based on access, make sure that the Free Pass option is disabled. All you need to do is to share your channel’s permalink (once created in Oveit, it automatically becomes available on Streams.live) and attendees are able to register from there. Once the registration process is completed, each of them will receive a .pdf of the ticket via email. The ticket code is placed right before the barcode, within that .pdf. To access your live session/event, a copy and paste of that code inside the ‘ENTER TICKET CODE’ box will give them instant access.

We recommend you to use an influencer for your live commerce shows, and you can select from a wide range of influencers available on Macpp.net. Using a proprietary algorithm, the platform will recommend you a list of influencers according to your criteria: niches, demographics, platforms, and more.
The format depends on your niche on what you are actually focusing on. Brand awareness, customer re-engagement, conversions? Our team of experienced advisors will work with you not only on finding the best influencers but also on choosing the right format that will help you reach your goals. But if you want to better understand your options, you can check our article on the most used live commerce events format.
What we offer you is a mix of live commerce and influencer marketing, where your customers join engaging live commerce shows hosted by top influencers, straight on your website. The eCommerce capabilities are enabled in the video experience, allowing your community to purchase goods without leaving the video experience. Live commerce has a conversion rate 5 times higher than traditional eCommerce.
We recommend that your first live commerce sessions are between 30 and 45 minutes long and are hosted twice a month. This allows customers to get familiar with your new sales channel, have enough time to ask relevant questions, and interact with fellow customers. Not only that you will build a community through an interactive sales channel, but a long-term partnership with an Influencer will provide better results for your business.
