WhatsApp’s Upcoming Update Might Help Businesses Use Chat Shortcuts for New Orders

WhatsApp has now become the standard messaging platform in most countries around the world, and it has so far managed to stay safe from the negative press that its parent company has been receiving. In spite of the fact that this is the case, there is still a lot of room for this app to grow, and you can see for yourself how the company behind it is trying to expand by checking out some of the new features that are coming up.

Beta testers at WBI have noted that an upcoming WhatsApp update might contain a new feature that business users would find very useful with all things having been considered and taken into account. This feature would create a shortcut which enables users to place new orders for a business with a single tap, and such an update would be vital because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing businesses to make order creation easier than it used to be before.

The update will bring a new addition to the chat action sheet, with this addition being an Order option. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that only WhatsApp Business users would be able to utilize this feature whenever it gets released, but since many users for this app focus on it from a business standpoint they would find that their workload has been eased somewhat by offering single tap order creation with several options to modify the order.

Businesses would be able to specify the product being ordered, how much of a quantity of said product the customer has asked for as well as the price that the business has set for it. All of these things will be enormously beneficial for the average small business owner, and WhatsApp’s focus on SMEs is going to be a big part of its growth strategy moving forward with Meta likely leaning on this app as its sole positively perceived property in their attempts to expand into ecommerce offerings.
