One essential component to the experience is providing quick, personal service, something that has been a challenge for online retailers. Without the benefit of the kind of face to face interactions possible in brick and mortar stores, it can be difficult to meet a customer’s needs in a timely fashion. While email and phone have traditionally served as channels for support, online shoppers are beginning to demand something better. Enter the Magento live chat plugin.
Did you know?
Magento live chat also enables online retailers to provide proactive support, which lets them attempt to solve a problem before it arises. If the retailers sees that a customer has left items in their shopping cart, and bounced from the site, a support agent can initiate a chat with the customer the next time they return to the online store. Thanks to this integration, they can then ask questions, determine what’s preventing them from completing the purchase, and work with the customer to solve the issue.
