Shayan Italia, Founder & CEO at Biryani360: Forbes CNBC, MOAT and TimesCity’s Best Online Food Delivery Startup India
Having a great piece of software is 50% of the battle. Having great and prompt customer support who actually know what they are doing is the balance 50% and everyone knows, its the end that leaves a lasting impression. From great customisation to a wonderful service with constant improvements there is nothing in the market at present to touch LiveChat. Pay peanuts and you get monkeys!

The best Chat App

Project Manager (Information Technology and Services company, 1001-5000 employees)
We were looking for the best solutions for our business, after comparing and testing several different tools we have come to the conclusion that LiveChat is unrivaled. No one is in a state close to multiplicity of functions additionally customer support doing a great job and are very helpful. Keep it up!

Quite simply the best.

Joe Bush, Director of Client Success, Co-Founder | The Chat Shop. Transforming the online customer communication experience.
We're a strategy backed managed live chat business and have used LiveChat since we began. Although the software wasn't developed for a business like ours running multiple clients through the same panel, the team at LiveChat have been faultless to work with.

Easy to use and good customer support

Sabrina Abdul Ghani, Marketing Assistant at National Switchgear
If you are looking for a Chat feature for your company website, LiveChat is a good one to use. It is easy to use and manage. My account manager, Andrzej, has been nothing but amazing. He has helped us to get started with this new feature and answered any and all inquiries we had immediately.

Ryan Wells, Managing Director at Stone Hosting Limited
The LiveChat platform is not one of the best, its the best. Extremely easy to use. Most friendly and supportive LiveChat agents who are REAL people willing to help. Need to ask a question at 4:26AM? No problem, they are on-line 24/7!

Best App Ever!

Katerina Kiskidinoglou, Business Owner at Oh!Baby
Live Chat was suggested by our administrators as a tool to increase customer support and of course sales. We are thrilled! We raised our sales a least 10-15% (due to immediate response to our clients needs and questions). Our customer support is much much better now, because we can answer questions quickly and easily (and this means more quick sales). Our customers appreciate the direct approach and help (and since most of them are mothers of infants and babies, who have a huge lack of time, appreciate it more). Anyway, I recommended the application to everyone who wants great customer support and an increase to their sales.

The best chat service we've found

Chad Keck, Founder & CEO, (SaaS platform for Net Promoter)
I've had the "pleasure" of implementing nearly a dozen live chat/customer support solutions over the years at 4 different companies. Some had some nice perks but they were all universally flawed in one form or another. No proper cross-platform support, tied to a much more expensive solution we didn't need, hard to manage, etc. LiveChat is an example of a company that has a strong product focus and does what they do REALLY well. Implementation and setup is very easy, managing chat (and team) users is very simple, the desktop apps are much better than relying on a browser and most importantly, they have the ability to customize the chat experience heavily which allows us to engage more users. That is the most important metric hands down. If users don't see the option to chat or don't like the experience, they won't take advantage of it. LiveChat is a great experience for the customer and the end-user chatting on the site. This is one service we probably couldn't live without...and their team has been great :)

Purely, simply amazing.

It does everything you could possibly want it to do and more. I love being able to take all chats to my phone, so I can practically provide live chat 24/7. The support is the best live chat software support I have ever worked with, and they will bend head over heals to make sure that your feature request or any other type of request is completed to your satisfaction. Great software.

GetApp Analysis

Reduced bounce rates are often tied to increased conversions. However, many businesses remain mystified at how they can better target and engage with leads on their own websites. LiveChat is a web-based solution that provides a way to do just that, allowing customer support agents to communicate with website visitors in real-time.

LiveChat was built for sales and support teams at companies of all sizes, and more than 10,000 companies are already using the solution. In addition to its popular live chat feature, which enables service agents to communicate with leads on their websites in real-time, LiveChat also includes features such as help desk ticketing system, tags, file-sharing, reports, feedback statistics, and eCommerce capabilities for measuring the impact chat has on online sales. Businesses can customize the look of their live chats to develop better brand awareness, and they can access previous communications with website visitors through their LiveChat archives.

LiveChat can be used through web browser or dedicated desktop and mobile apps

What is LiveChat?

LiveChat helps businesses give their customers a hand. The solution can be used for two different, although equally important, scenarios. Sales teams can use the cloud-based application to increase the number of transactions and the average value of customer orders that come in through their websites. Meanwhile, support teams can use LiveChat to improve overall customer happiness and resolve complaints or other issues in less time.

Almost as soon as businesses have signed up for LiveChat, service agents using the tool can begin reaching out to help their customers find what they need. This alone has been shown to reduce bounce rates and churn rates, and it can often increase customer satisfaction levels. Because LiveChat was built from scratch to be used as a sales and support tool, it was designed to support some of the fastest customer service among chat providers. LiveChat is the only provider currently on the market with customer support available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year for all customers.

Customers display LiveChat Dashboard on the big screens in their offices.

Main Features

Chatting with Customers

At the core of LiveChat is a real-time chat tool, which service and support agents can use to communicate with website visitors in real-time. This tool helps users target the most promising leads and engage them before they've had time to bounce.

Jump right in with an offer to help a customer on your website using LiveChat's chat feature. LiveChat prepares you for the conversation by providing you with details about any previous communication the online visitor has had with your company. You can also transfer challenging chats to your teammates and use pre-made canned responses to improve response times. Additional information can be gathered from external sources like Facebook, CRM application or email marketing systems.


Tracking Visitors with Tickets

Tickets continue a company's communication with a customer if that customer's issue isn't solved on the spot via chat. Integrations with email marketing solutions, like Mailchimp, ensure that interactions don't end, by subscribing customers to mailing lists.

With LiveChat, you can create a new ticket manually during the ongoing chat session or from an archived chat. When your LiveChat is offline — usually during non-business hours, when your sales teams are not in the office — website visitors are encouraged to fill out ticket forms. LiveChat also allows you to forward emails from particular email addresses into its customizable ticketing system.

Detailed reporting in LiveChat provides information about customer satisfaction, ecommerce conversion and customer support efficiency.

Customizing Chat Windows

Customization features make it possible for businesses to adjust the look of their chat windows to improve brand awareness and messaging. Users can select a chat window skin and add company logos. They can also use custom CSS for advanced design tweaks.

Make sure customers know which company they're talking to by adding a logo for your business to your chat window. LiveChat gives you the option to make your own buttons or to use pre-made chat buttons that fit your website's existing design. White label options also allow you to remove the "Powered by LiveChat" message that visitors see when they communicate with your team. Agents are able to upload their own pictures for even more personal communication.

Theme Customization

Generating Reports

Sales and support teams can't improve if they don't know what they're doing right and wrong. With reports, LiveChat users can easily see how many chats they've gotten, how their operators are handling those real-time discussions, and how satisfied their visitors feel at the end of their online chat sessions.

Click over to the Reports section of your LiveChat account to view detailed metrics. LiveChat displays the information as charts, which can be sorted and filtered by agent or time period. You can also see the visitor satisfaction ratings and chat availability records, and you can track how many chats ended with a sale, website registration, or other targeted goal. Export of the analytics is also available in higher plans, so data-driven companies can use the data for creating advanced reporting.


Creating Chat Surveys

Visitor information is incredibly useful for sales and support departments. LiveChat has a seamless way to collect that data with online chat surveys.

Create a pre-chat survey that shows up at the beginning of each online chat. This survey can ask your visitors for basic information, such as their name or email address, before their real-time chats begin. However, it can be also used in more advanced scenarios, like directing customers into particular departments of the company. If you prefer, you can also implement post-chat surveys, which are a useful way to assess the quality of agents and the satisfaction level of customers who've interacted with your team. Data from chat surveys, along with the chat history, is exportable for further reference to external solutions like CRM applications, help desk software, email marketing applications and marketing automation tools.

Chat Surveys


LiveChat integrates with a number of third-party services, including those in the analytics, CMS, contact management, CRM, desktop sharing, eCommerce platforms, email marketing, file sharing, help desk, invoicing, and social media categories.

Organizations can create as many accounts as they need. The number of purchased seats decides the number of agents that can be logged into the service at the same time.

Prices for LiveChat start at $16 per seat, per month, and increase to $149 per seat, per month.
