We are looking for someone to develop a proof of concept theme that allows for an admin user to connect a Livestream to their Shopify storefront. We are looking for rough estimates to fulfill the following consumer story and can be be flexible on the streaming and chat integrations available to keep the scope skinny. This project does not currently have any designs but would work similarly to the QVC app with chat functionality.
As a consumer, I hear about a flash sale going on through Instagram live (or some other streaming service) and it’s an opportunity to learn about fashion trends, check out a new or familiar brand, and save some money. I’d log onto Instagram which might display some of the day’s deals and/or product offerings, however; I would not be able to make a purchase. I’d follow a link in the IG chat or through a post that will redirect me to the Livestream Storefront.
Upon being taken to the Livestream Storefront, I’d see a prompt to log into the Storefront or Create an Account to make a purchase or participate in the chat.
Upon logging into the new site, I would be able to:
-Create an account
-Participate in the chat
-Add items to a shopping cart
-Add payment options
The interface would ask me if I’d like to view the livestream, which I would agree to or browse the store’s available “regular” collection on display. If I’d agree to view livestream, I would now be able to participate in a chat and view the items being featured in the livestream. Note: these items may not be available in the “regular” collection leaving access to purchase them only through livestream.
Upon opening chat, I’d be able to ask questions to the streamer and receive answers in real time.
Upon viewing the item on the stream (and in the “livestream” collection), I would select it to add into my cart while viewing the live update on the display of the number of items currently in the Shopify inventory. I can see that inventory levels are decreasing so I am urged to checkout immediately.
Upon asking a question to the streamer in chat, I’d hear the streamer address my question verbally as well as receive a written response in chat.
If I do not have my payment information saved, I will be prompted to add my payment information at checkout. At checkout, I would expect to see the normal order of operations to checkout from an online merchant; entering billing and shipping information and confirming my order.
I would easily be able to return to livestream to view more items and repeat process if necessary.
