Chat widgets have become extremely popular with eCommerce merchants and for good reason. They essentially function as an always-on resource for customers, allowing them to ask questions about products as they browse your site. Chat widgets represent a valuable channel for establishing relationships with customers and LiveChat is one of the best chat tools available to BigCommerce merchants.


In order to provide a well-rounded customer service experience, you need to be able to anticipate questions, issues, and concerns that customers may have, and be prepared to respond accordingly. Having an easily accessible frequently asked question (FAQ) page makes it easy for customers to find answers to common questions — and reduces the workload of your support team by avoiding clogging up customer service channels with basic queries.

This enables your support team to communicate with customers easily, without having to constantly switch between channels.

In order to understand how successful your customer service efforts are, you’ll need to conduct surveys. Surveys help you assess your overall customer experience by getting the perspectives of your most important stakeholders: your customers. Unfortunately, many surveys aren’t very effective due to their length. Callexa aims to solve that problem by helping you launch engaging, one-question surveys that your customers will actually complete.


For many customer service teams, email is the most popular — and congested — support channel. Depending on the size and scale of your team, it can get really complicated trying to juggle large amounts of customer emails while providing exceptional service to each.
