Whether you are looking for a new hairdresser, florist, or a new lunch spot, finding local businesses who are able to help you is easy – all you need to do is to open your Rakuten Viber app to the Chats screen, search for a business, and select the relevant option.

Once you have selected a business, you have several ways to learn more about them or get in touch.

Check out their business profile: This is the first page you’ll see, and it contains all the business’s essential information from what they offer, their hours of operation, to how you can contact them. The business profile also features buttons for you to message them, call them, or share your discovery with your friends.

Browse their catalog: Businesses can upload a catalog of products and services so you can see what they offer. Tap the chat bubble on the item you like to message the business about it.

Send them a message: Want to speak to a person, book an appointment, or buy a product? Simply tap the message button and start a chat. Chats with businesses have similar features as your regular chats with friends and family. And the best part is they all go to your business inbox directly,leaving your main chat free for personal conversations.

So what are you waiting for? Discover a new gem in your neighborhood, or get the most out of your local favorites.

Viber Business accounts are now available for local businesses in Greece and the Philippines. Users in other countries – stay tuned!
