With Hero for Shopify, stores can shop virtually with online customers via chat and video — and stay in touch via text.
HERO was established in 2015 after its founder was stuck waiting on hold to his local book store. He’d just spent time traveling South America and was struck by how many local businesses were using WhatsApp to connect with customers. He asked himself “Why can’t I just text the store instead of calling?” With this idea, he teamed up with a longtime friend and colleague. They have more than a decade’s experience in mobile commerce and messaging. Today, HERO has grown from a startup to a world leader in conversational commerce. The company has raised more than $15m in private and venture capital. Click HERE to visit the website of HERO.
