How can I use intercom as a customer?

You can add Intercom to your mobile app to allow you shoppers  to start a chat with your support team from the mobile app! Customers will be able to start a conversation with your support team by selecting their Profile Icon ➡️Contact Us. 



If you decide to integrate Intercom into your platform you will need to make your support hours clear to shoppers and have an employee ready to reply to incoming chats in a reasonable window of time.
