This plugin uses the Xelion platform – you need to be a Xelion customer already.

For all of you who already use the Xelion platform, this plugin adds a webchat widget to your WordPress sites that allows you to use Xelion to handle chat contact with all your website visitors. The chat messages are processed through the Xelion application, which allows them to be accessed seamlessly by all relevant people regardless of whether they work on a PC or a smartphone.

  • API access credentials.

Here is what you need to do:

    • If API settings are correct, you’ll see a success message.
    • If API settings are incorrect, you’ll see an error message.
  • Customize the features to match your preferences.
  • Customize the look and feel to match your brand.
  • When everything is set up, the webchat widget will automatically be on every page of your website.

If you run into problems:
