About Live Chat with Help Desk
Use a live chat to provide stellar customer service and convert visitors into customers with LiveChat for Shopify and Shopify Plus.
The way LiveChat works is simple. A typical chat widget sits on the bottom right of your website. Actively engage on-site visitors with chat invitations, or let them start conversations by themselves.
Also, use the widget as a contact form to offline messages and enable customers to sign up for your mailing list.
Take advantage of installing live chat on your Shopify store
The Agent App inside LiveChat provides you with a real-time view of a customer’s cart. You can find this information in the customer details bar on the right. Make the purchase processes easier for your visitors with suggestions based on what’s inside their carts.
LiveChat allows you to send product recommendations known as Product Cards right in the live chat widget. Each recommendation consists of an image, description, and a button linked to a product page in your Shopify store. Give suggestions, guide your customers through the purchasing process, and get more sales.
Get more detailed customer information with the Customer Insight
The Customer Insight is here to improve the work of your agents and contribute to an increase in conversion rate. As you talk to potential clients on your store’s live chat, you can access all the data related to a particular client, e.g., their tracking numbers or delivery statuses.
To make things even better, anytime you need to manage your cooperation with a client on Shopify, the Customer Insight will help you do that via the LiveChat Agent App, without the need to jump in and out Shopify Admin panel.
LiveChat works well with the rest of your tech stack, including support help desks, customer retention tools, email notification platforms, SMS notification apps, and more!

Most recent reviews
Not sure why this app isn't rated much, much higher. It is one of the best in the market, integrates so easily and has some really neat features like showing Product Cards to customers, instead of copying and pasting URLs.
Thanks for the review! If you have any feedback or suggestions as to how we could make Product Cards even better do let us know and drop us an email at apps[at]livechat.com.
App doesn't give much value. First of all, it blocks the Shopify "checkout" button on mobile devices so you lose sales. Also as a CRM, it doesn't work well as you can't even find a list of customers you've interacted with although they've given you their contact details. Finally, you have to talk to the support agent to get them to cancel your subscription and guess what? they can't cancel your account either
Thanks for sharing. We have some news, updates, and announcements coming your way.
By default, the chat widget is showing up in the middle of your site on mobile. However, you can make changes to the position, appearance, and other options via Settings > Chat widget > Customization. It is also possible to disable it altogether on mobile.
As of now the Customer Insight widget (aka our CRM) gives you access to customer details, transaction history, real-time cart preview, and product recommendations. We would love to listen to your feedback on how we can improve Customer Insight — you can expect an email from us.
Separately, all chat transcripts are stored and can be accessed later on (via Archives). Using filters / the search option you can locate past conversations that include contact details and other information.
Lastly, uninstalling the app automatically cancels your subscription with LiveChat -- this applies to all Shopify (public) apps. We can confirm that your subscription is no longer active.
I searched and searched for the best chat app. Not sure why I didn't start with the Gold Standard of chat apps! I have been using a competing chat app for years before coming over to Shopify. It was good, but nothing like this. LiveChat is so intuitive and user friendly. Plus, the support for this is unparalleled! Thank you!
