Q6: Are there any plans on developing an app for other ecommerce platforms than Shopify?
A6 from Thijmen: Yes, we are now just in the beginning of what is possible. We are currently in the proces of developing comparable apps for other ecommerce platforms, such as Adobe Commerce and Lightspeed. Also we are creating a SDK so that custom websites can also stream and enjoy our extensive content.
Q7: How did you experience the process of creating YOUR app?
A7 from Thijmen: Haha, i have spend hours/days in our editor to see where the bottle necks were. But sometimes you're already to deep into the product, so that is why we also have an extensive team of testers and content creators that are creating content in our app.
Q8: I have created some reviews, is there a possibility that my content will be streamed to a webshop?
A8 from Thijmen: First of all, awesome that you created reviews on our app. When your review is approved then it will be enabled for streaming. So depending on the product you wrote the review for it will be streamed. And thus you will also start making money!
