10 Best AI Tools For eCommerce in 2024

Running an eCommerce product business sometimes feels like being pulled in all directions at once. Sound familiar? You’ve got to write new product descriptions, update your store, answer customer queries, and send packages. 

Even as you expand your team, it never seems enough. What’s the solution? Is there a way to lighten the load without spending a fortune on new employees?

Yes! It’s called artificial intelligence (AI).

As of 2024, small business owners have access to some of the best AI tools ever developed for eCommerce. From AI copywriters to automated customer service experts, there’s a tool for almost every job in an eCommerce product business.

Let’s go through the best AI tools in 2024 for eCommerce, looking at their top features, potential benefits, and affordability.

10 Best AI Tools for eCommerce in 2024

Best AI Writing Tools 

1. Jasper

What Is It? Building out your website? Creating more product pages? Usually, that involves extensive copywriting to capture your customer’s attention and convince them to stick around or purchase a product.

Enter Jasper – an AI-powered writing assistant. Jasper isn’t just a regular generative AI platform; it’s tailored to creating blog posts, product descriptions, and marketing copy. 

How Does It Work? It works by leveraging advanced algorithms and natural language processing (NLP) to generate coherent and contextually relevant text. Business owners simply input a topic or brief description of what they want, and Jasper gets to work. 

It’s impressive stuff. At the same time, it’s still not on the level of the best human copywriters (and sometimes the writing can be a little clunky); however, with a few edits, you can save yourself hours of writing.

  • Teams Package – $125 per month
  • Business Package – Available Upon Request

2. ChatGPT

What Is It? Haven’t heard of ChatGPT? It’s the world’s most advanced AI language model (developed by OpenAI). Designed to simulate human-like conversations and generate text-based responses, users can ask it to do just about anything, and the program will respond accordingly.

How Does It Work? ChatGPT is remarkably versatile. From generating new product ideas to planning your marketing strategy, the platform can help spark ideas, refine your processes, and write product descriptions. Just be careful; some responses can seem a little generic and bland. 


GPT-4 is priced at $0.03 per 1K tokens for input and $0.06 per 1K tokens for output. Approximately 1,000 tokens are equivalent to 750 words. 


What Is It? Like its two competitors, is a versatile generative AI platform. If it can be written in English, can produce it. Brainstorming, research assisting, and content writing are all just a prompt or request away. 

How Does It Work? As before, simply enter a prompt (a text description of what you want), and will get to work. Take product descriptions, for example. Simply ask the platform to create a description for a specific product highlighting its benefits, and you’ll get a new description in seconds. You can even include a product’s URL in the prompt to speed up the process. 


  • Free Package – $0 per month
  • Pro Package – $49 per month
  • Team Package – $249 per month
  • Growth Package – $1,333 per month

Best AI Customer Service Tools

4. SiteGPT

What Is It? SiteGPT is an AI-driven tool tailored for enhancing website interactivity and customer support. It seamlessly integrates with web platforms, offering features like automated FAQs, content personalisation, and instant query resolution.

How Does It Work? When users input questions or requests on a website, SiteGPT employs sophisticated algorithms to analyse and respond accurately and contextually. For example, suppose a visitor asks about a product. In that case, it generates a detailed response or directs them to relevant site sections, improving user experience and reducing reliance on human customer service.

5. ZenDesk

How Does It Work? Zendesk for Service uses an advanced ticketing system and AI-driven automation to route and handle customer queries efficiently.

Integrating with existing systems, Ada provides personalised interactions across a broad spectrum of queries, from basic information requests to complex problem-solving. 

How Does It Work? Using machine learning, Ada learns from every interaction. The more customers it speaks to, the more queries it answers, the better the responses become – Ada becomes ever more attuned to your business.

When a customer initiates a chat, Ada analyses their questions to provide accurate, immediate answers or directs the inquiry to the right human agent if necessary. Think of Ada as your customer service triage.

No more endless shipping questions. No expensive customer service costs. Just answered questions and satisfied customers.

7. Shopify’s “Magic”

What Is It? Sometimes, people think running a small business happens by magic. By what if it did – Shopify Magic is an advanced AI tool that leverages artificial intelligence to streamline your online eCommerce store. Forget the headache of inventory management, personalising product recommendations, or customer service – Magic does it all. 

How Does It Work? Magic uses AI algorithms to analyse customer behaviour and store data. It then delivers insights, automates tasks like adjusting inventory levels based on sales trends, and offers personalised product recommendations to customers. 

For customer inquiries, “Sidekick” (a soon-to-be-released Magic feature) automates responses or directs complex queries to human support. Not only that, but it also helps draft emails and provide instant answers, e.g., personalised FAQs. 


Shopify Magic tools are available for free to all Shopify merchants, regardless of the user’s subscription plan.

Algolia is an AI-powered search and discovery platform harnessing the power of “NeuralSearchTM” to understand customer intent and pair up the query with the right results.
