From there, HelloShopper pairs a user with a dedicated advisor who will be able to engage the shopper with more questions in order to make suggestions for the perfect gift. After whittling down some options, a user is able to see a handful of products, which they can purchase directly from the app.

As well as assisting with the purchasing process, HelloShopper boasts that its users will also be able to take advantage of "the guaranteed lowest price and hassle-free service."
