Don’t assume ChatGPT can’t be helpful for e-commerce merchants, it can actually be a valuable ally. But it all comes down to the prompts you give.

Prompts are questions, instructions or phrases you give ChatGPT and the responses can vary drastically based on exactly how you word your prompt. By slightly altering your prompt you can receive a different response which is why it can take some experimenting initially.

You can talk to ChatGPT in a similar way you talk to a real human. As long as your prompt has all the necessary information, you will receive a response that is detailed and sounds like it’s coming from a real human.

The prompts in this article are examples, you need to alter them to suit your business needs to receive an answer that is tailored towards your business and niche.
