CartSkill builds one of Europe’s first online stores in Facebook Messenger for fashion brand Monton. Now users can shop inside Messenger by chatting with the Monton brand. Instructions here.
“We think of this as part of an omnichannel approach,” said Külli Koort, head of ecommerce at Monton, which operates an ecommerce site and just shy of 100 brick-and-mortar locations across eastern Europe.
The idea is to create an online store within Facebook Messenger, piggybacking off Facebook’s existing app with mass adoption, while at the same time reducing the number of clicks it takes to get people ensconced in Monton’s ecommerce experience.
