What your website visitors see

When a visitor comes to your site, they'll find a chat widget docked to the edge of their window. If they need to chat, all they need to do is enter their name and the conversation will begin! (You can try it out yourself with our own widget, if you'd like.)

You can now also pop out the chat into a new window, allowing your visitors to continue to browse the site while talking to your operators.

What your operators see

With Pure Chat there is nothing to install. Operators login to their dashboards right inside of any modern web browser. In this image, the Current Chats tab is selected. At a glance, an operator can monitor and participate in chat sessions. This is also where operators indicate their availability and can see incoming chat requests.

new! Hosted Chat Pages

Have you ever wanted to use your widget on a webpage that doesn’t provide an opportunity to paste our javascript snippet? Well now you can! Whether you’d love to provide live service in your eBay store, or want to avoid publishing your phone number on Craigslist, our hosted chat page can help.

To use hosted chat pages, enable “hosted chat page” in your widget settings and paste the link on any profile, post or email. Clicking the link will pop up a new page where visitors can chat with you like they would from a chat widget on your website.

Native Mobile Apps

Sometimes you don't want to be tied to your computer, but you still want to be available for chat. Now, you can answer chats on the go with our iPhone and iPad application.


Canned responses

Often, site visitors will ask similar questions to your operators. Pure Chat makes it easy to provide pre-configured “private” and “public” responses without losing the personal touch that makes live website chatting such a valuable tool in the first place. This feature saves your operators time, which results in your web site visitors receiving even faster service.

Canned responses can be accessed by a dropdown menu, or autocomplete as you type.

Chat widget customization

With Pure Chat you can customize how the chat widget appears on your web site. You can provide a name for your chat widget, a title, a dark or light theme, and a ton of other options, and you can determine where on your web pages the widget will appear. Also, you can set an availability time that automatically makes operators unavailable each day at a certain time.

Change & update user settings

Administrators and operators can change the name that appears when they chat with website visitors. The email field is used for logging in and resetting forgotten passwords. This is also where you'll set your alert options.
