WhatsApp rolls out Shopping Button – Here is what it means and how it will benefit you

New Delhi: WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature to businesses that will replace the old calling button with a shopping button. This will let people discover a particular business’ catalog to find out what they are offering.

The feature will be available starting today.

The shopping button on Android and iPhone gives WhatsApp users direct access to the catalog on the WhatsApp Business app. This also gives the users wider access to the button directly from their chat, thus making it easier for them to explore products and services while chatting directly.

To make the shopping button available to customers, you must have an account registered to the WhatsApp Business app and have set up a catalog. If you meet those requirements, the shopping button will automatically appear to your customers in their chats with you, the instant messaging app says.
