Virtual fitting is a powerful marketing tool that allows you to multiply the conversion rate and reduce the return rate of goods.

Retail market experts predict that in the next few years AR try-on will become a common practice. For example, Facebook and Instagram have already launched AR advertising campaigns in association with major beauty brands.

In the meantime, while advertising campaigns in social networks are not accessible to everyone, you can design your augmented reality app for the virtual fitting of your products.
