30 second live chat installation

Our live chat plugin instantly gives you the ability to chat directly with potential clients and/or website visitors when they're ready to do so. Initiate a live chat with a certain visitor or wait for them to initiate a live chat with you. Increase your website conversion rates by providing real time live support.

Quick Overview

Once the live chat plugin is activated, click on "Live Chat" in the left menu navigation. As soon as a visitor lands on your website, their details will be displayed in the live chat control panel. A live chat box will be displayed on their screen. If they fill out their details and click "Start chat", a ringing sound will trigger in your live chat control panel. Once you accept the chat, you can communicate directly with your visitor.

Using WP Live Chat Support effectively on your website

One of the most important tasks of your website is to educate potential customers of your product and/or service. By having a live chat window on your website, this gives you the opportunity to do this.

  • Live chat is convenient for customers
  • Live chat builds trust with your potential customers
  • Increase sales by using live chat
  • Take advantage of a fully functional live chat plugin for free.
  • Reduce costs by using live chat on your website with minimum staff
  • Learn to understand the pain points of your customers

Have the choice to use your website or our server to host your live chat

You now have the choice to host your live chat on either your own website (using your own resources) or our live chat server (using our resources). Making use of our live chat server will improve your chat's performance by up to 300% and reduce the load on your host. Although we initially built our live chat plugin to be used on your own website and for you to host your own live chat server, we now offer you the ability to make use of an offsite live chat server - this is perfect for users that are on low-level hosting packages, or users that are more concerned about live chat performance and chat security.
