Retailers and brands must deliver experiences that are efficient, effective, and effortless for the customer. This piece is part of a series showcasing best in class examples of conversational interfaces; it focuses on Warby Parker’s commerce features. According to the Forrester Analytics Consumer Technographics® US Retail Recontact Survey, 2020, 42% of US online adults said it was important for retailers to offer live online chat on their website, up from 27% in 2019. Warby Parker allows customers to complete a transaction without leaving the chat experience. To do so, customers simply provide the agent with their name, shipping and billing addresses, contact information, and credit or debit card information through an embedded payment feature. To learn more about the evolving presence of chat in retail, register and listen to our webinar The State Of Chat In Retail: The Current And Future States.
