Octane AI, the all-in-one buyer profile, Facebook Messenger, and SMS marketing platform for Shopify, has announced the launch of its Shoppable Quiz private beta, the company said.
The Shoppable Quiz brings the retail consultation experience online with a personalized shopping experience, featuring a fully customizable and easy-to-use quiz builder integrated with Shopify, Klaviyo, ReCharge and other best-in-class ecommerce technologies.
With advanced quiz logic, Shopify stores can ask customers key questions to build buyer profiles and use personalized messaging across Facebook Messenger and SMS to recommend products — all in one platform. Octane AI is also announcing a USD 4.25 million venture capital funding round led by Bullpen Capital with additional participation from General Catalyst Partners, Boost VC, FJ Labs, Mana Ventures, Nelstone Ventures, True Search and many others bringing the total funding raised so far to USD 9 million.
Octane AI is bringing a core part of the retail experience online for the first time ever. The Shoppable Quiz simplifies the discovery experience for customers with an in-depth online consultation, altering the ecommerce space from a searching experience to a helpful, personalized, and conversational experience.
The Shoppable Quiz lets brands design their own quizzes with a drag-and-drop interface. Customers can simply add products to their cart directly from the results page. By integrating with Octane AI´s existing Messenger or SMS tools, businesses can send personalized follow-ups based on quiz answers.
