I am on the free version. I keep it over others that have more free features, because I like the pop up. It has a link to frequently asked questions, and image area . Check it at our site www.foreverfused.ca , Forever Fused Glass Memorials

Super fast support from the team and app works really well with invaluable features vs a more typical social media chat integration. We can see what a customers is looking at, their session history and demographics and what they're typing before they submit which is a real time saver, and the ability to edit a response if a customer is offline came in handy. This app's a keeper for us and has been really reliable.

Would be 5 star if the app didn't very frequently start new sessions for registered customers coming back to chat so we don't have past chat history and have to keep spending time checking for the name or email provided. We get that folks clear their cache or disable some tracking, but we see this a lot with customers who keep providing their details and haven't removed past data.

It's a great app and pretty easy to set uo and use, even though most of the features are in pro plan.

I use this app in my shopify store. It is great! I just wish that the realtime visitor list was on the free option. Right now I don't need anything else until I can start making money in the store. Other than that it is everything I need

The installation went without incident and the user interface is intuitive. I've found that the visitor's interface does not render well if on a mobile device, which is to say that it does not flip when turning your device. Overall, support has been good. The application has a desktop notification feature which works well for our customer service folks. The target chat feature needs some additional explanations as to how each rule functions. A YouTube training video would probably be beneficial in assisting users. The saved-replies work as expected which is a time saver for our customer service folks.I also love that you can customize their chat widget and change the location of where the widget is presented. The response time on the application between the customer and the customer service rep. is acceptable and being able to see the text that the customer is typing prior to them submitting is a fabulous time saving feature. Overall, I'm very happy with my initial findings on the application and look forward to them adding additional features which could push this application over the top. If you are seeking a light weight customer service chat application for your store, this application is more than sufficient. If you are looking for more analytics and feature-rich chat platform, this might not be your first choice.

I have been looking for the perfect chat application for a while.
None of them was perfect and some were quite expensive for their available features.

I tried Olark, Tidio, Messenger, Drift and finally stopped on Chatra...

Why I switched from Drift to Chatra?

Drift does have a great look and great features, but their pricing was way off compared to Chatra...

And Chatra also offered a lot more features out of the box for a quarter of the price.

Having access to live users, segments, HelpScout Integration, were some of the basics I was looking for.
And Chatra delivered.

Their onboarding was also very friendly and they gave me all of the answers I was looking for...
Like how to customise the chat button with my own face!

Another very nice feature is the ability to edit a comment after it's posted (so you don't look like a second grader when writing to your customers).

And, one feature I didn'T realise I would like was the "see what the customer is writing" feature... Wow!
How nice is this to be able to start searching or writing a reply to your customer even before they post!

Overall, this app really made the cut for me.
I've been using it on my phone and on desktop for the past 2-3 months and it's been great!

UPDATE: After using the app for more than 8 months, I did get into a few frustrating bugs using their mobile app (which is actually a web app).

It's sometimes frustrating to try to make a correction on the small writing space. The app will sometimes become unresponsive and it keeps me from responding to a client on time.

It's still a great app but I did find another one that is half the size of Chatra and should help shave another 150kb on my page weight.

Just installed, used it with a few visitors. A really simple, yet powerful tool to keep your visitors engaged. Loved the intuitive interface to see what visitors are typing.

One thing that will make Chatra the best available chat app is visitor insight and information like page views, current page, location, IP etc even if there is no chat contact initiated. This is available in a few other apps, but would love to see this on Chatra.
