Manila, Philippines — ChatGenie, a mini-app development startup company, introduces MSME Booster Program which aims to provide micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) six months of free online store on Messenger, Instagram, Viber, GCash, and other business tools.
ChatGenie wants to make e-commerce simple, easy, and convenient for both sellers and their customers. It provides online stores inside Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Viber, GCash, and other Super Apps with no commission fees to businesses and retail brands. Its features include end-to-end solutions from online ordering to online payments via partners like GCash, PayMaya, BPI, PayMongo, and Paynamics among others. Deliveries are fulfilled via partners like Grab Express and Lalamove.
“With the current situation where people stay home to stay safe, businesses have taken their sales strategies online. However, many small businesses don’t have the advantage of having a big team to handle their sales inquiries, inventories and deliveries. The ChatGenie model makes it easy to seal a deal. It saves sellers time and effort because they don’t need to process each order since it is automated,” says Ragde Falcis, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer of ChatGenie.
