ChatGPT for eCommerce has emerged as a fun tool for influencers to test its style chops. But, how does it hold up against YesPlz AI Stylist?


In our latest stylist face-off, we’re comparing two top tools: ChatGPT for eCommerce versus YesPlz AI Stylist.


Which one is the best for retailers looking to create a personalized experience for their shoppers?


Read on to find out.


The Prompt:


I need an outfit for a casual first date. Any suggestions? Also it’s fall, so it’ll be cold. I’m a woman.


We asked the same exact prompt to both ChatGPT and YesPlz AI, to see how they each performed. We chose a complex prompt based on what we’ve observed: shoppers tend to ask prompts that are a) situational and b) include specific circumstances, such as weather or an event.


Let’s see how both tools compare.


Is ChatGPT’s response good enough for eCommerce retailers?


Asking ChatGPT for eCommerce for fall styles


How was the UX/UI?


-Overall, ChatGPT for eCommerce responded with a long list of text, which is overwhelming for users to read and understand 


-Because ChatGPT is limited to text responses, there were no integrated products linked, making the purchase process difficult


-The text-based interface also wasn’t compatible with the visual nature of shopping. We found it challenging to visualize the outfits suggested because of the lack of visual cues.


Were the answers fashion oriented?


-We found the answers to be vague, including points like: ”finish look with ankle boots or sneakers”


-We wish there were more details about what kind of boots, for example, or the color of the boots.


Was the response personalized? 


-Unfortunately, the responses from ChatGPT for eCommerce weren’t personalized based on previous interactions and preferences, making them more general


-In addition, it wasn’t possible to save or interact with suggested products, or view further recommendations

We asked the same prompt to YesPlz’s AI Stylist to see the results.

The Importance of Using the Right AI Stylist:


Shoppers want to easily find the right product for their special occasion, personal attributes, or style aspiration. Today, no search and recommendations accommodate the shoppers' needs.


Unfortunately, retailers currently lack the tools to understand shoppers' intention and find the right products, missing an opportunity to help shoppers discover from the catalog. And retailers also lack the tools to scale up sophisticated styling, leaving shoppers with limited capability rules-based chatbots that don’t deliver the personalized experience they deserve.
