Today we launch our latest new feature - payments.
Payments work worldwide on all of our supported platforms, right now.
Payments allows you to collect money or sell a product directly in your chatbots. You just need to connect up Stripe to process the payment.
You can choose to either line up the sale first, then simply request the payment, or show the user a set of products that they can click to buy. Where the messaging app supports webview (in-messaging browser), the checkout stays within messaging.
When you receive a payment, you can hook up a trigger to receive the details and then thank your user or send an email to your team to fulfil the order. You can send metadata right through the user flow, so it’s easy to join everything up at the other side.
You should read the docs for all the info about how to collect payments in your flows.
Don’t read docs? Just go to a flow where you want to collect a payment and add either of the 2 new payment actions and follow the steps.
Enjoy! Let us know what you think.
Next up: live chat. We’re going to make it way easier to chat directly to your users. Coming soon.
