Pure Chat is super easy to add to your site thanks to our WordPress plugin! After the quick, three minute set up, you’ll be able to turn anonymous website visitors into leads with live chat on your website. Plus, live chat helps you save time because your team can chat with multiple leads at once instead of talking to them on the phone one at a time or waiting for email responses.

Never miss a lead
Capture leads day and night by converting your chat box to a website form when your team is offline. Remember: Any missed website visitor is a potential missed sale, so make sure your chat box appears as an email form when your team is not available!

See who’s on your site and what they’re doing
Our website visitor tracking allows you to see a list of details about your active website visitors and identify your best leads. See key information like a visitor’s name, country, time on site, current page, number of visits and source. You can also find out which pages they’ve viewed, and look up past interactions with returning shoppers or customers..

Holding me hostage

I installed it and then our company decided they did not want a chat feature. I have reached out to the company for months now and after uninstalling the plugin it still is running on my site. I can’t get any help from them to remove this from my site other than their live support person telling me that it is a function script that is probably dropped into my site files and has to be removed. I asked where i would find it and he told me they do not know and that i must have put the function in on my own, even though he gave me a copy of the script. Talk about jerks, it is like if you do not use their plugin then they will leave something on your site to spy on you. Do NOT get anything from them.

Great app! We even create personalized videos for our leads

We’ve been using Pure Chat for more than a year now. We use it to answer questions from our users and leads (sales conversations; sometimes we start them within the Pure Chat widget and we finish them o a call or demo).

When we are offline we also automatically create a personalized video for every lead using our own solution (Sezion) and Pure Chat’s integration with Zapier (http://zapier.com), so that every lead receives an email with a personalized video and a message saying that will be happy to help ASAP. I wrote an article about it here: http://blog.sezion.com/engage-website-visitors-with-personalized-video-using-pure-chat-sezion-and-zapier/.

Pure Chat is really basic, but it does what we need, which is to communicate with our users, prospects and leads whenever they have a question. Also, it provides information on where the user/prospect/lead is coming from and we can save the script as well.
