The Facebook Messenger Bot development company, Kikbot has developed a Messenger Chatbot that helps customers in shopping by taking their payment details. You may not have heard of it, but this bot is likely to be hugely popular for the foreseeable future.
A Chatbot that taking your payment details is not the same as a website for buying on eBay. It doesn't help you make a purchase or provide links to a product site. But it will take your details and then provide you with options to buy the product through its own site, or through eBay.
Once you've decided to shop on eBay, the chatbot can build your own store right from the chat platform. Once you've completed the purchase, it will follow up with an email to inform you. This lets you know that the product was successfully purchased.
A large number of people are reluctant to pay by credit card because they fear fraud and identity theft. Messenger Bot takes the need for new customers off your hands, by using only your stored details for the duration of the transaction.
Your first purchase after registering at the site will be free, and you'll be able to register to have other purchases put into your account. You're able to earn credits for things like spending, and then spend them on things like items and services.
If you want to try out the service before spending it, then it's easy to do. Just open the Messenger chat, type "test" into the chatbox, and give it a try.
You'll be asked a standard text box for your personal details and security questions. Kikbot will also ask questions about your habits, preferences, and then see how you answer them before recommending you things to buy.
The bot will also allow you to browse an overview of your account's user before you buy it. It will give you an idea of what you're up against, and what you might be interested in doing with it.
After you've finished with your payment, you'll be able to click the shop and purchase the item. The rest is as usual.
It looks very similar to a website for buying on eBay, with the chatbot appearing to come directly from Amazon. It can suggest things to buy based on your interests and browsing history.
Facebook Messenger Bot is currently only available in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. It will not come to the rest of the world, so it may be difficult to use it.
Messenger Bot is the perfect tool for those who wish to avoid credit card details for buying things online. It gives you all the benefits of PayPal without requiring a credit card.
