Attentive rolls out text-to-buy with Shop Pay from Shopify

Thursday 4 August 2022 10:26 CET | News

US-based conversational commerce platform Attentive has launched text-to-buy with Shop Pay, allowing customers to make purchases from an SMS conversation.


The solution is removing steps from a brand’s SMS subscriber’s path to purchase. A consumer can now purchase directly in response to a promotional text message from a brand, without having to navigate a website or a checkout page. Currently, mobile conversation rates are more than 60% lower than desktop rates. The social commerce company will deliver frictionless buying experiences, catered to the shopper’s interests based on their browsing and spending patterns, all within a text message.

Attentive’s officials stated that launching the text-to-buy solution is their first step to helping brands close the purchase gap and convert more browsers into buyers. They are happy to partner with Shopify, given the breadth of its merchants, industry security, and innovation.
