Share and Shop right from your chat keyboard. ShopChat is the world’s first shopping keyboard. Share it with friends to shop together while you chat.
Founded in 2016, San Francisco-based ShopChat offers a downloadable iOS app (Android coming later) that serves to replace your default keyboard app and works across all major messaging apps, including iMessage, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp, giving users a direct pipeline into shopping inventory from major retailers. It makes it easy to search for and share products with friends.
With the iOS app installed, users can switch between their main keyboard app and ShopChat with a few taps. Rather than letting users pay for things within ShopChat, the app links to the brand’s website for people to buy directly.
