Insider’s biggest launch of the quarter was WhatsApp Commerce—following the recent acquisition of Mind Behind and becoming an official Meta Business Solutions Partner (BSP). Insider now offers 360-degree WhatsApp solutions starting from WhatsApp Business account creation, template approval, campaign creation, opt-in templates, segmentation, personalization, reporting, and more.
With this launch, businesses will be able to offer more value based on the users’ willingness to engage, heralding a new age where consumers can discover, browse and buy products, and engage with businesses—right within the app where they spend most of their time—and in the conversational style they use with their friends and family.
WhatsApp Commerce allows businesses to deliver immersive web-style experiences within WhatsApp, combined with the power of two-way conversational messaging. This pioneering technology will enable businesses to create seamless buying experiences, from sending personalized promotions, capturing leads, and launching products to delivering post-purchase confirmations and loyalty experiences.
Both retail and non-retail brands can benefit from WhatsApp Commerce, given WhatsApp is the most popular messaging channel in the world, with over 2 billion active users and an open rate of 99%. It provides opportunities for businesses to improve product discovery, increase sales, uplift AOV, optimize CAAC, increase CLTV, and improve repeat purchases by running niche campaigns like product launches for retail, flight reminders with ancillary sales for travel, lead generation tools like interest calculators for banking and finance, and test drive booking forms for automotive, enabling users to complete their goal with fewer clicks and no redirects.
“Insider’s WhatsApp Commerce has fundamentally changed how we interact with our customers. We are now able to meet our audience where they already are and offer complete order booking experiences at the touch of a button within their favorite app. Insider’s WhatsApp Commerce allows us to build more personalized and conversational purchase experiences for our audience as an extension of our promotional campaigns — allowing them to leverage our offers, browse our menu, and place an order without leaving WhatsApp. This has significantly reduced cart abandonment by 61% and improved our monthly average order value by 38%.” – E-commerce Director, Food Retailer
With WhatsApp Commerce, brands can leverage templates like product cards, category lists, catalogs, conversational flows, rich CTA messages, payment integrations and more to influence customers.
