FAQ

How can I tell if someone scanned my QR code?

Viewers can scan the QR codes displayed in your live shopping video. When that happens, "Someone scanned the QR code" will appear in the Studio and on the stream.

This can be enabled or disabled by toggling the "Show QR code scan alerts on stream" option in your General Settings.

How can viewers scan my code if they're watching the stream on their phone?

Enabling "Push product links to live chat" in your General Settings allows the link of the selected item to be automatically sent in your chat. This helps mobile viewers open the link while watching on platforms like YouTube and Facebook.

What is this feature useful for?

Live Sales is perfect for product launches, affiliate marketing, fundraisers, pre-orders, flash sales, product demos, and more! It seamlessly connects with major e-commerce platforms, but also offers the flexibility of incorporating custom products.

Will this work for affiliate links too?

Of course. All you'll need to do is make sure that the link you redirect your viewers to is the affiliate one.

Can I further edit the products after I import them?

Yes. Hover over the item under the live sales menu and click the pencil icon.

You will be able to edit the product title, secondary text, image, current price, original price, and link.
