Virtual Shopping.

Bringing the in-store experience online.

What if you could give your customers an in-store experience that was available on-demand and accessible from anywhere in the world? 

Well now you can. At Now Comms, we can bring the power of virtual shopping into your Shopify Store or digital commerce environment. Just like browsing in-store, your customers can explore your virtual retail environment, browse products, look at different colours or sizes, choose the one they want and then checkout.

It’s a virtual shopping experience to bridge the gap between the bricks and mortar retail experience and online shopping.

HOW DOES VIRTUAL SHOPPING WORK?

We will create a Virtual Tour of your physical store using 360º photos or videos. Your customers can access your Virtual Store through your online Shopify store, ecommerce website or brand website. There’s no need to download an app, the experience will stream through their internet browser onto their desktop, tablet, or mobile.

Once in the Virtual Store, shoppers can wander through the different parts of your store. Shoppers can interact with products by clicking on Content Markers. Once triggered, these markers open a pop-up box showing product information such as images, videos, audio, rotating 3D models, descriptions, sizes, colours, other options, pricing, and quantity required.

We integrate directly with Shopify, so shoppers in these Virtual Stores can select their products, add straight to cart and purchase seamlessly through the Shopify checkout process.

 

WHAT ARE SOME VIRTUAL SHOPPING IDEAS?

    1. Give a more immersive in-store experience to your customers, by giving them a branded mobile VR headset allowing them to look around your store in virtual reality.
    2. Create unique hero experiences for special product launches, VIP shoppers, or private events.
    3. Change your Virtual Store shopping environment anytime you want, adapting to the seasons, teleporting them to exotic locations, or showcasing other retail stores located around the world.
    4. Use it as a marketing tool, by offering different experiences to different audience segments. Share the experiences through social media channels. Then track their user behaviour, link views, clicks, and time spent inside your store to help improve your conversion performances.
