Seller-Assisted Shopping in Magento 2

Take-over As Customer - in Magento 2

At last, Magento’s new ‘Seller-Assisted Shopping’ feature allows store owners to log in as a customer to assist shoppers. Merchants now can offer immediate service and assistance to both guest users and customers who have registered for an account on a store. A sales rep can assist in various ways using the customer experience capability.

‘Seller-Assisted Shopping’ feature allows sellers to provide more customer engagement by letting sales or customer service reps to log into their site as the customer from their account.

  • You may want to solve administrative problems with purchasing and setup approval rules.
