Shopify’s new tool, Shopify Magic, uses AI to help merchants generate product descriptions.
How it works: Merchants enter a few keywords to target in search results, select a tone (like “expert” or “sophisticated”), and Shopify Magic will create a product description.
Your move: This is the latest in Shopify’s battle against Amazon.
What’s next? Shopify says it will be using Shopify Magic to enhance even more of its tools.
Earlier this month, Shopify made updates to over 100 of its merchant offerings, including a new checkout experience and more functionality in the Shop app.
Shopify Magic could easily integrate with any of these products, particularly when it comes to customer service or payment offerings.
The domino effect: Since ChatGPT hit the scene last year, companies are moving fast to put their spin on it.
The bottom line: Shopify is smart to make its move into generative AI while it’s still relatively untapped. As more retailers jump on the bandwagon, Shopify could establish itself as a market leader and possibly even make some money by licensing its product to others.
