With monthly active users reaching 2.5 billion, WhatsApp has a global presence in 180 countries," Adam said.
According to the survey conducted by Meta & Forrester Consulting, 88% of surveyed businesses said that WhatsApp has brought in more revenue. Claudia Chiu, Senior Strategic Partner Manager, Greater China Region of Meta, noted that the WhatsApp has empowered businesses to establish a complete shopping journey.

Businesses can also include different response buttons and product catalogs in WhatsApp messages."
Sa Sa proactively integrates its offline and online businesses to deliver a customer-centric omni-channel shopping experience. Hong Li, Director of eCommerce of Sa Sa, mentioned that using Chatbot auto-reply feature of Chat Commerce has significantly reduced the response time of customer service, enabling the team to solve the problems of other customers, thereby increasing sales conversion rates. "During the last Lunar New Year and 3.8 International Women's Day, we delivered game messages and exclusive coupons to customers via WhatsApp and Omnichat's Chat Commerce platform. Through this way, not only the customer engagement rates can be increased but also a 39-fold increase in coupon redemption rates compared to the general rate," Hong added.
