Zero install Multi-Source video streaming ushers in a paradigm shift in interactive live shopping shows powered by CommentSold.
LOS ANGELES, August 15, 2023 – CommentSold, the leading fashion live selling platform, announced today the launch of a new multi-source feature, designed to bring a deeper level of creativity, digital presence management, and interactivity to live shopping. Completely browser based, install-free technology allows sellers to invite external participants into their shows by simply sending them a link or QR code–while maintaining complete control over the guests on-screen presence.
Robust administration controls allows sellers to hold guests in a waiting room, bring them in the show at appropriate times, in multiple display formats that include PiP and Split Screen modes, while maintaining complete control over guests’ video and audio streams. Sellers can also promote the guest to full screen and leave the screen themselves, moving behind the scenes – preserving the ability to appear on screen as and when they please.
This innovative functionality opens up a myriad of possibilities for CommentSold powered live sellers. Now they can collaborate with remote celebrities/creators, allow takeovers of their apps/streams by a 3rd party supplier who wants to bring their goods to their customers, create multi-camera events showcasing products from multiple angles at the same time and involve their audience members into their shows on-camera, to level-up interactivity from comments only, to live on-camera conversations with customers. Guests and hosts can join the stream from anywhere in the world, removing the need for even the primary host to be in-studio to host a show.
“We are absolutely ecstatic to enable a paradigm shift in live selling with these features which will be liberating and profit enhancing for CS sellers. Now they can leverage professional hosts, celebrities and creators to host their live stream shopping events–freeing them from the daily grind while making their shows even more irresistible and boost viewership. Add to that, the ability to invite VIP customers to join their shows on-camera and give live reviews of purchased products and it totally changes the level of interactivity of our live-streams, making them even more interesting and in turn driving higher sales. Throughout its history, CS has focused on releasing path breaking technology that changed the game for our sellers, like the release of the CommentSold live selling mobile app in 2019 and now clientless multi-source in 2023. Expect even more innovation from us in coming months and years as we chart the path of growth for the US live selling industry ” said Gautam Goswami, Chief Executive Officer at CommentSold.
“First of all, I am obsessed. It has literally changed the game. One of my favorite things is that a VIP can pop on because our customers love when we interact. Now we can select one of our VIPs to pop on to tell us what they think about their outfits and all the different things that they love. And they are now lifetime customers of our store just because of that interaction. It is such a big deal,” said CoCo Oswalt, Co-Founder of Deep South Pout.
Multi-source technology is now available for all CS sellers on the CS Core, CS Mobile App, Videeo and Videeo for Shopify App platforms.
