  • Sell your products to teens and young millennials (Generation Z)
  • Drive targeted product discovery and conversion via a curated shopping experience
  • Tap into messaging app Kik’s audience of 300 million registered users—without buying ads


ShopSwag is currently available for U.S. merchants only

Products MUST be appropriate for a teen audience (13-18 year olds)!

The ShopSwag chatbot on Kik is an automated personal shopping experience. Users answer a couple of questions about their personality and get custom product selections from a variety of merchants in return.

What is a chatbot?

Chatbots enable people to shop via messaging and text. You can check out this chatbot for yourself by downloading the Kik app on your mobile device. After you create your account, tap the “+” in the upper right corner of the screen, then tap “Discover bots.” Search for “ShopSwag” and follow the prompts to see how it all works for the user!

How it works for merchants

Do you sell items that are of interest (and appropriate for) teens? Then add this app! Items like apparel, footwear, accessories and beauty products are especially popular among this unique audience.

We get product submissions from hundreds of merchants and hand-pick the ones that we know this audience is going to love.

This app is completely FREE to use until you actually sell something. Only then is a 10% commission fee charged per transaction.

Appropriate products for teens

YES - Apparel and footwear

YES - Beauty/ grooming products

YES - Tech/electronics

YES - Sporting goods

We can’t stress this enough: the primary audience for the ShopSwag bot on Kik = teenagers. Items that will not be approved:


  • NO - Revealing swimwear/lingerie

  • NO - Sex toys

  • NO - Smoking paraphernalia

  • NO - Anything related to firearms

  • NO - Anything alcohol-related

  • NO - High-end jewelry and watches (over $200)
  • Recommended price points

    Products between $10 - $200 are great. Again, if you are a purveyor of high-end goods (e.g. no items over $200), this is not the right app for your wares.

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!
