The all-new Live video selling dashboard for an enhanced experience that boosts sales & revenue - say hello to Blynk! The focus of this revamp is on an intuitive and refreshing user interface with powerful functionalities.

Here’s how you set it up!

Note: You'll need two devices to use Blynk efficiently - One computer/laptop to carry out the setup on the Vajro dashboard, and a mobile phone to stream the live session using the Vajro Admin App.

Vajro Dashboard Setup

Step 1: Go to your Vajro dashboard, and click on Blynk - Live Video.

When you’re a first-time user, this is what you’ll see! On this screen, hit the “Create Sale” button to start your setup

🛈 Please note that while the sale is being set up, it stays in pending status on the dashboard!

Step 2: Click on Complete Setup to proceed with the live sale setup

Step 3: Click on Live Video Name and enter a title for your live video session. We've now made it mandatory for you to give a name for your sessions. You can select your target audience for the session, and also enable or disable Cart Hold right here during the setup.

Step 4: When you click on Select/Scan Products, you can either add products manually from the inventory or use a barcode scanner

Manual selection can be done by clicking on the drop-down menu and picking products out. Products once added, are automatically saved in the dashboard. If you wish to delete a product, click on the delete button next to the respective product on the list.

Barcode Scanning is a quite straightforward process. You just need to scan the barcode of the product you’d like to sell on the live sale, and it'll automatically get added to the product list.

🛈 Please note that you require a physical barcode scanner and printed barcode label for you to be able to use this functionality. Your product is required to have either the SKU or the barcode in order to be able to add it to the product list.

Setting up multiple Live Sales

You can set up multiple live sales in advance so you can use them later when you launch your live sale.

Step 1: Enter all the details and click Save as Draft.

Step 2: Select Create Sale to create a new sale

Step 3: Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to keep saving live sales setups in advance.

You can also save time by duplicating the setups and settings of a live sale, especially when you want to broadcast the same products or target the same audience in many live sales.

You can do this by selecting the menu to the right of the live sale you want to duplicate and by choosing Duplicate Sale.

🛈 The duplicate live sales are assigned a default name which you can change at any time. Note that you cannot duplicate an ongoing live sale.

When you're ready to go live after the setup is complete, select the sale you want to go live with and click Create Sale.

Once this is done, you'll need to initiate the session on your Vajro admin app!

Going Live with Vajro Admin App

Step 1: Go to your Vajro admin app on your mobile, and click on the Live Video button at the bottom right. Once you're ready to start the session, click on "Start Now!"

Step 2: Click on Start Live. You'll see a prompt on your screen saying that your live sale setup is pending.

Step 3: Once the sale has been set up on your dashboard, you're good to go live!

Back to the Dashboard

Head back to your Vajro Dashboard, and click on Go Live to initiate the live session.

Let's quickly go over what each button on the dashboard does!

  • Click on the Add product button to select products that are to be displayed on the live session either manually or using a barcode scanner

  • Specify what your customers need to comment on your Facebook page streams in order to buy a specific product.

  • The user can look around the rack and view any product specs while a product is live, and see which product is live at the moment on the Control section

The Selected button indicates the product currently being displayed in the session.

The View button beneath each product enables the user to select any product from the rack to display next. You will be able to move around the Control section to preview the products that are currently on the rack.

Note: When you switch products during a session, make sure you click on View on the respective product on your dashboard to ensure that the right product overlay is on display when you are talking about that product.

At the end of your Live sale session, you will see a prompt popup on your screen letting you know that your session has successfully been completed. You will be able to download a CSV report of all the customers that participated in the live session and analyze the efficiency of your session.

Note: Minimum App version required. Please contact the Support team.
