Don't bother here. After years of paying for Olark we move to Tawk.to who offers everything you can get here with no monthly fee.


Terrible customer service. They never respond to questions. All I wanted to do was reset my password and... crickets. I will be choosing another app for chats at this point.

Think hard before you install this! We used Olark for almost two years. Honestly there is nothing wrong with the app but there is nothing special either. You can get most of the chat features free of charge using other apps. We switched to Tawk and it gets a little getting used too but it's free however what sucks about Olark is there extremely poor customer service. Just wait until you try and uninstall the app and see how helpful they are.We spent just under $400 with Olark and now i am satisfied with the free chat option so we can put that $400 towards growing the business!
