SHOPYBOT – Facebook Chatbot Platform for E-Commerce

Few months ago I released my chatbot platform for e-commerce – SHOPYBOT. Only now decided to write short article about its possibilities 🙂

Currently I have ~100 registered users and ~10 shops that created own bots.

Since I launched the platform I realized that some of the things I created for users need some re-work or not needed at all. I’ve been contacted by 3 shop owners and we had great discussions about features they would want to be in the platform and this was very helpful and I updated my backlog.

So, the platform idea is in the following:

  1. Give possibility to shop owners start selling products in Facebook
  2. Give this possibility not in a hard way, but in a “single click” solution
  3. ZERO programming skills required
  4. ZERO mind blowing conversation constructors, mindmaps, etc

Currently SHOPYBOT works with any e-commerce engines with help of a special export plugins (magento, prestashop, opencart) and works natively with WooCommerce because I created a shopybot plugin  that makes integration very easy.

If you have WooCommerce shop and want to create own chatbot you can just:

  • install this WooCommerce chatbot plugin
  • click button #1 to “Connect to shopybot.com”
  • click button #2  to “Connect Facebook page”
  • click button #3 to generate products to export
  • that’s it – bot already imported your products and started working

Brilliant thing is that you don’t need to do anything with your products in the bot – all you need is to manage your product as you did before in your WooCommerce admin and bot will be importing them automatically. Awesome? 🙂

Bot supports 4 languages now: English, German, Ukrainian and Portuguese. Will be adding more as soon as I get more shops with different languages.

So please try my bot and let me know in comments below what would you add to the list of features or you have cool idea – everything is more than welcome 🙂

 

E-Commerce Facebook Bot for any Online Store

Why do you need E-Commerce Bot?

Few months ago I’ve got an idea of making “Bot Sales Manager” for any online store. Yes, the idea is not unique, “Simpsons Already Did It”, but I havent found any service in the internets which solves this in convenient way.

Big players like eBay and Shopify already created bot solutions for their platforms and now it’s the turn of the rest of e-commerce to have this additional distribution channel.

Ueberauth OAuth2 Authentication for Elixir project with LINE Messenger

Hello Elixir fellows!
Released yesterday first version of the ueberauth_line package for oauth authetication for your elixir project.
Installation and using is pretty straightforward, you can use any of other Ueberauth tutorials, like Ueberauth for Facebook.

Tricky thing in using LINE OAuth is setting up LINE Channel and handling errors because they are now really readable (they put error codes in the URL, so keep an eye on your browser address bar).
Be sure you went every step described here in the LINE web login settings very carefully.

Please note that LINE doesn’t provide user email address so we need to mimic it with the LINE user ID and if you need an email for user you’ll need to implement additional step of adding an email.
