How to buy a product/service using the WhatsApp “shopping button”
Check out how to buy a product/service using the WhatsApp shopping button. Just follow the step by step of this tutorial!
This past month, WhatsApp gained a feature that promises to offer a new buying and selling experience for its users. Thinking of a solution to make the experience more fluid for those who buy and sell on WhatsApp, the app’s developers created a shopping button that directs those interested in buying to a company catalog. In this way, the seller, through the WhatsApp Business app, will be able to better expose all his products and increase the chances of selling more than one item.
With the new functionality, the “shopping button” allows the company to easily and intuitively provide a catalog of products and/or services so that the person can more easily view what is available. This way, it will be easier to negotiate and save more time for both parties, as the customer will view the information in advance through images and a title for each item offered. Then, the interested party will only need to select what they want from the company’s catalog and contact someone responsible for the company’s service, mentioning the chosen option.

Check below the step by step to buy or hire a service using the “shopping button” of the WhatsApp app.
Step 01: Open the WhatsApp application on your smartphone, select the magnifying glass to search for the contact through the company name, person or phrase/word that you have mentioned during the messages.
Step 02: With the search bar open, type the name of the company, person or phrase / word that you mentioned during the messages.
Step 03: After opening the chat of the desired company or person, select the “shopping button” located at the top right corner. If not, it means that the company has not registered any products or services in the new WhatsApp sales and purchase system.
Step 4: After selecting the “shopping button”, the company catalog will open within WhatsApp and you will be able to view the list of products and services (catalog) offered by the company. Select the desired item.
Step 05: After selecting the desired product or service, see that it is possible to view several photos by dragging your finger to the side of your smartphone. Right below you will notice that there is a button labeled “MESSAGE BUSINESS”. Select this button if you want to contact an employee to find out more details about the product or service being offered.
Step 06: After selecting the button “MESSAGE BUSINESS”, you will be directed to the chat again where there will be a quote for the product or service that was chosen to let the attendant know what it is about.
Bonus tip: it is possible to follow the same steps through the WhatsApp Windows 10 application and contact the company through the PC ( notebook or desktop). To do this, just select the same icon mentioned in step 03.
