What is Intercom?
Intercom is a chat support platform you can use as a way to provide customer support to your shoppers.
How can I use Intercom for my shop?
If you have an Intercom account and a mobile app custom-built by CommentSold, you can integrate the two to give your customers the ability to chat with your support team. Customers using the app will be able to start a conversation with your 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.
