Introducing Live Selling for Shopify: Boost Sales and Connect with Customers in Real-Time

“When I decided to transition from another platform to Shopify, I was concerned about the complexities and the potential disruption for my customers. Apptile turned this challenge into a seamless upgrade. My users didn’t even need to reinstall our mobile app—everything they needed came through as just an update!”Jenna, Owner of Soulful Bling Boutique

At Apptile, we put our customers at the heart of everything we do. This feedback from Soulful Bling Boutique perfectly sums up what we aimed for when developing our Live Selling solution: a simple yet sophisticated solution that enhances user experience.

Introducing Live Selling for Shopify Stores

We’ve been working hard to upgrade your live selling experience with Apptile.

Why Live Selling Matters

Live selling has rapidly grown from just a trend in China to a global phenomenon, particularly in Southeast Asia and the USA. In fact, it’s estimated that by 2026, livestream e-commerce sales in the United States alone would reach USD 55 billion. If you’re an innovative brand in the States, you’ve likely already tasted the success of live selling on social media, despite challenges like managing orders and video lag. Well, that’s where Apptile comes in – we’re here to refine and enhance this experience for you.

As the host, you’ll have the power to manage comments from all platforms (app and social channels) without leaving the live stream. You can also showcase multiple products in the same stream. Your moderator too gets powerful features to manage the event, and can ensure that your live sessions are running smoothly.
