Live chat is the online support service that provides instant help for your customers who are seeking immediate help from a customer service assistant in real time. It normally appears on eCommerce sites  in the form of a little text box that says “how can I help you?”. Live chat is a useful tool that can help you to increase your conversion rate and profit.
