Viber, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, is only getting bigger. In 2021, it has even strengthened its presence in the country with a 33% rise in monthly active users last year. Viber group chats also remain popular with a whopping 110% increase. Social media has been consistently evolving, becoming powerhouse apps you can do nearly everything on! Viber is no different.
Another major messaging milestone popular on the app? Business messaging. If you haven’t already noticed, Viber has been partnering with the biggest brands in the country, giving companies access to their millions of users worldwide. With a 54% increase in business messages alone, you could say this is not just a passing fad. Creating your own Viber channel can help your customers find you and join your community. Having a business channel on the app can help you get in touch with your patrons and having an In-App Commerce store will make it that much easier for them to make an order. Once in your channel, shoppers will always have access to a button that will redirect them to your store.
It’s simple. Even YOU can start automating the entire ordering process on the messaging Super App without breaking the bank. All you need to do is set up your own Viber In-App Commerce store. Let customers browse, add to cart, and checkout all without having to leave their message thread.
