What is MyLiveChat?

MyLiveChat is a live chat and help desk software that's suited to meet the needs of small or medium-sized businesses. Simply choose a no-contract plan and you'll soon be able to chat in real-time with your website visitors and help solve any problems they may have.

The user-friendly software has a dashboard that's both intuitive to use and easy to organise, and you can tailor it to your requirements. What's more, MyLiveChat can be integrated with apps you already use in your business, such as Shopify and eBay.

You might decide to try out MyLiveChat's free plan before upgrading to take advantage of additional features, including email reports.

MyLiveChat's software is the creation of Canada-based CuteSoft Components Inc., who've been providing tech solutions to customers across the globe since 2003.

What features does MyLiveChat offer?

  • Free version. If you're not ready to commit to a paid-for plan, you can try the Forever Free Plan. It uses simple HTML code, a floating chat button that doesn't interfere with your website design, and key features to help you do chat in a clear and useful way.
  • No contracts. Each plan is pay-as-you-go, with no contract meaning you can cancel any time you like. If you do cancel, you'll only be charged for the current month.
  • Range of chat features. Take advantage of image and file transfers, user roles, reports, team chats and more. Integrate your live chat with your other CRM, CMS, eCommerce and SaaS solutions.
  • Mobile-friendly. Both iPhone/iPad and Android users can log in and support customers on-the-go by downloading MyLiveChat's app.
  • Proactive chats. Reach out to your prospective customers with automated greetings based on factors such as their location or URL.
  • Email support. If you get stuck, you can email MyLiveChat at support@mylivechat.com and you can expect a response in a few hours.
  • Security. MyLiveChat says it provides security 'in the same way banks do'. You can feel assured that no one outside of your team will be able to access your chats and files.

Pros and cons

  • Unlimited chats available on all plans
