Definition

What is Chat Support?

Chat support is the real-time communication between a customer and customer support provider, most likely through instant messaging. These conversations are usually done via the pop-up dialogues embedded on the company’s website. Customers can type questions or clarifications on the pop-up dialog box, and the customer support provider (it could be a person or a bot) can quickly reply to them in the same window.

Chat support is a convenient and cost-effective way to make sure your customers are getting the help they need.
