Set up live chat for website

by Jacob Firuta

Getting started with LiveChat is a simple process that doesn’t require much of your time. Follow the guidelines below to get it up and running within minutes.

If you need help implementing or staffing your live chat on website, be sure to check out our Experts page.


To start off, you need to create a LiveChat license.

After that you will be redirected to a web page with the LiveChat code. Here, you can choose to implement LiveChat on the website on your own or send the instructions to your webmaster.

Installing the live chat html code on website

If you choose to do it yourself, you need to copy the code.

Paste the code right before the ‹/body› tags of your pages.

If you don’t have the time to install the html code now, you can get it later from the LiveChat code section.

Remember that we are here for you! If you happen to have any problems, start a chat with us – we are available 24/7/365!

Next, go to your website to check if everything is working correctly.

If you see a chat window in the bottom right portion of the page, you have successfully installed LiveChat code on your website!

We have a bunch of plugins ready for the most popular content management systems. If you are a WordPress, Joomla or Drupal user, you can complete the installation process by installing LiveChat plugin on your website or platform. To get a plugin for these and other platforms, please visit our Addons page.
