The GiftGuru bot on Kik gives you the power to sell your products to a coveted and hard-to-reach audience of U.S. teens and young Millennials.

With more than 300 million registered users and a growing user base that chats with bots on a daily basis, Kik offers the ideal environment for the GiftGuru bot, which has proven beneficial for beta merchant partners who have seen promising results in the way of product discovery and conversion.

What it is

GiftGuru on Kik is a marketplace-style chatbot designed to help users find the perfect gifts for their friends, family and even for themselves, in a fun, personalized way. Here's how it helps users shop:

  • Engages users with one-on-one conversations to push down the purchase funnel

  • Asks user light questions in order to serve up the most relevant product recommendations

  • Enables users to browse a broad selection of products easily

  • Facilitates frictionless purchases, either via mobile checkout or through emailing cart to a parent with the tap of a button

  • Conducts an innovative shopping experience designed specifically for a young audience whose spending power grows by the day

  • Provides direct access to Kik users, no ad spend, or bot development required

Suitable products

The GiftGuru experience helps users find gifts for recipients of all ages, but its target user base is teens and young millennials. As such, adult items (e.g. smoking/vaping, intimate apparel, sex toys) will not be approved.

Recommended categories include:

  • Apparel/Footwear

  • Beauty/Grooming

  • Toys and Games

  • Sporting Goods

  • Home Goods

Recommended price points

Products between $10 - $200.

Does not work. Button to set up shop doesn't work.


I can't get it to work and customer service takes a lot of time to answer. Button to save categories is not working.


Prior negative feedback has been removed. The email address for contact was incorrect, but not kik's fault. Audrey has been so helpful and quick to respond to my many questions. I advise contacting kik, as there is limited info provided by shopify about this app. Sounds good though, I'm looking forward to trying it out!



Just installed, I`ll give it a few weeks to see if it generates any actual sales. Current fee is 10% per sale.



Easy to setup and approved now just waiting for better things to come;)


10% commission on sales transactions (excluding taxes and shipping fees). You pay ONLY when you make a sale!
