SHOPLINE offers integration with LINE that allows merchants to connect with LINE API. With this integration, merchants can link online and offline customer behavior, effectively expand a store's consumer base, increase sales from mobile channels, and funnel LINE users toward things like store membership.
Connecting your store to LINE will give you access to the following features:
- Broadcast Messages
- LINE Order Update Notification
- LINE Quick Sign Up
- LINE Login & Sign Up
- Send "Abandoned Cart Email" to Shop Members
- LINE@ 1:1 Chat in Message Center
- Instant Message Management and Manual Order
- LINE In-chat Shopping
*Note: The messages sent by the features above will be sent as paid messages, which will be accounted from LINE's monthly free message quota.
14 steps to set up
Step 1. Check your plan
In SHOPLINE Admin, go to [Hello, OOO] > [My Subscription & Billing] to see details of your current plan and modules.
