Before and after the purchase, customers have many questions about the delivery and shipping of their products at e-store. Questions coming before sales cover topics such as delivery time, packaging quality, shipping cost and scheduling options. If the customer will not get any answer to these questions, it will prevent the buyer from spending money on the site.

After purchasing the product the customers may look for tracking shipment information and also request periodic updates for its location and estimated delivery date. Failure of not getting any updates will cause a lot. Customer will think twice when he/she wants to buy any product for next time. 

A Chatbot allows the online store to provide updates and information related to delivery and shipping of the product to the customers. Questions on the shipping can be easily fed in the script, and can be promptly answered to customers who need information.
