Supercharge your customer journey with custom AI chatbots!

Enhance your customer experience with the best AI chatbot for Shopify

Customer expectations for seamless and personalized interactions with online businesses have never been higher. In response to this demand, we at Sendbird are proud to announce the launch of a groundbreaking Shopify chatbot

This new AI chatbot is designed to automatically ingest Shopify store data to deliver superior AI customer service and create an enhanced ecommerce chatbot experience. Let’s discover how our AI chatbot capabilities can revolutionize your store shopping experience.

Why is Sendbird’s new Shopify chatbot game-changing?

Integrating GPT-4o, OpenAI’s cutting-edge LLM

Large Language Models (LLMs) are the engines behind new-generation AI chatbots using Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Natural Language Understanding (NLU), Machine Learning (ML), and Neural Networks (NN). These models allow chatbots to generate text thanks to GPTs: AI models pre-trained on a vast corpus of data. GPT-4o is OpenAI's latest LLM, showing incredible results in response quality.

Mastering Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG): What is RAG? Why does RAG matter?

In simple terms, RAG is a technique for optimizing the answers of the Large Language Model (LLM) powering your AI chatbot. Instead of relying only on its pre-trained data (billions of parameters), the LLM can reference another authoritative knowledge source before generating its response. The knowledge source can be web content or a file ingested into the LLM. RAG is a highly cost-effective way to improve your AI chatbot's response accuracy without retraining it.

With expert knowledge of RAG, Sendbird allows any business to create custom chatbots with first-party data insights. The better the data and RAG quality, the more intelligent and valuable your chatbot will be! Isn’t that exciting?

What are LLM-powred chatbot limitations? How does RAG help overcome them?

LLM-powered chatbots have many limitations, such as bias, accuracy, context awareness, and unpredictability. Some result from the training mechanism, and others are from static data with a cut-off date that is inevitably outdated.  

By ingesting and letting the LLM retrieve new data, with clarifying terminologies and specific knowledge, an AI chatbot can:

  • Understand context better

  • Present more accurate and up-to-date responses.

  • Ensure authoritative responses by referencing sources (check out how our website AI knowledge-bot assistant does it.)

The future of ecommerce is tightly coupled with the performance of LLMs and RAG. As RAG and LLMs get smarter and faster, AI chatbots may emulate human interactions close to perfection.

What are Sendbird’s Shopify chatbot features?

1. Effortless Shopify chatbot installation and store data ingestion

2. Seamless Shopify chatbot setup and customization

There are many features available to customize your Shopify chatbot. You can:

  • Draft system prompts for the LLM to define the chatbot's tone and personality or set guardrails to prevent it from engaging with your brand in irrelevant and possibly damaging conversations.

  • Create workflows and custom replies to streamline the user journey of people with a specific intent, such as learning about products and policies or simply seeking support.

  • Write custom answers to questions for which you know you have the best answer. Your Shopify chatbot can use this custom answer instead of generating its own response.

  • Customize the look and feel and name of your website chatbot widget.

These ecommerce chatbot features will ensure your chatbot is unique, professionally behaving, and represents your brand ethos properly.

3. New ecommerce chatbot functionalities
