Shopify provides AI-based fit capability

Shopify is teaming up with TrueFit.

Shopify is connecting retailers on its platform an artificial intelligence (AI) solution that helps ensure accurate online sizing.

The Canadian e-commerce company is providing retailers the option to utilize the True Fit Fashion Genome solution, which lets consumers create an online fit profile by entering some basic information about their body type and preferred retailers and apparel brands. Customers then  add a “reference item” for each category so True Fit can compare what they are shopping for to what they already have in their closet across different categories

Customers create their profile by entering their email address and creating a password, or they can save and sign in with social accounts. TrueFit provides AI-based recommendations across menswear, womenswear, kidswear, unisex apparel, footwear, swim and structured intimates categories.

Brands including Few Moda, Greyson, Toast, and Dia & Co. are currently utilizing TrueFit on Shopify, and Shopify retailers are being provided a seven-day free trial of the technology.

"This is a very exciting moment for the $2.5trillion apparel industry, which historically has remained digitally constrained around 20-25% digital. By opening up the power of the Fashion Genome's machine learning and artificial intelligence data engine to merchants of all sizes on the Shopify platform, we will accelerate merchant growth through frictionless digital discovery and consumption." said William Adler, President and CEO of True Fit. “We are thrilled to bring this enterprise capability to the rising brands, which will strengthen the fabric of the apparel markets from largest to smallest merchants."
