Let Us Do the Work
Install the app. Sit back. We show your products to our users and allow them to purchase your products with ease. It's that simple.
Reach a Large Teen Audience
Tap into instant messaging app Kik’s audience of 300 million registered users—without buying ads.
We have made the process quick and easy. Simply connect, select your collection, and categorize your products with our preselected options.
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.
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. items over $200), this is not the right app for your wares.
