Live commerce is a shoppable video format that combines live streaming and entertainment.
On one end you have a host that combines product presentation and entertainment. At the other end, there are customers that watch the live sales assistant or influencer perform live. They interact, ask questions, and, when ready, purchase your products straight from the live shopping experience.
We feel it’s the next step in commerce.
With our integration, you can manage your live shopping sessions from your Shopify store. Your products will be automatically imported and can activate them for any of your live sessions. Customers can add them to the cart without having to stop the live experience. And when they are ready to buy, they will checkout using Shopify.
Your customers, your products, your data. Your store.
Ready for live shopping with Streams.live
How live shopping for Shopify works with Streams.live
Live shopping products
By adding Streams.live to your Shopify store you will be able to activate any product for live shopping (and any of its possible variations) with ease. Simply search for the product that you want to sell through that specific live shopping and activate it with a click of a button. Even if your product catalogs have thousands of products, you can easily activate any of them in a matter of seconds. One of the things live shopping does is increase the average ticket size. How? By allowing to present related products during the live shopping video session. This way, customers get a better understanding of how to use more of your products together, increasing the average basket size and overall satisfaction level of your customers.
Easier than ever to buy
During the live shopping session, customers will be able to add products to the shopping cart without having to interrupt the video experience. They can select the desired products while you present them and check out the entire cart at any given moment. By adding Streams.live to your Shopify store, the shopping cart becomes available within the live video session, offering an unmatched shopping experience.
Embedded shopping experience
You can easily embed the live selling session on your website. Streams.live generates an embed code – you need to simply copy and paste it on the desired page and the full experience will become available on your platform. This way you have full control over the entire customer journey.
Once your customers decide to proceed to checkout, they will be redirected to your secure checkout page. All products will be automatically transferred there, making the process flawless. The video experience will follow customers on the page, keeping them engaged and helping them easily return to the initial experience if needed (maybe they’ve missed something on the shopping list).
