How to integrate a LiveAgent chat button on your Volusion site
A live chat button provides an easy way for your customers to reach you from your website in case they have any questions.
Open your LiveAgent and go to Configuration > Chat > Chat Buttons
Click on the orange plus icon at the top of the section to create a new one. Select the design you want from the chat button gallery or upload a custom design from HTML or from an image in the Custom section. When you’re done selecting, LiveAgent will take you to the next part of the setup.
Now you have to name the button and select the receiving department, language, and other options such as forced desktop mode or maximum queue length. This part of the setup is up to your preference. Click on Save when you’re done and proceed to the Integration section in the left panel.
Now all you need to do is copy the code into your website body. Go to your Volusion store administration panel, navigate to Design and click on Template. In the advanced editing select Edit HTML and go to the bottom of the page. Paste the code right above the </body> line and save the changes.
If you’re not sure how to do this, you can send the code to your website admin by clicking on the Send code to your web admin option in the LiveAgent integration right above the code. They will take care of the rest for you.
You’re done. Go to your store page and click on refresh to see your new live chat. Your customers will see it each time they enter your e-shop and they can get in touch with a support agent easily from there.
You can also track live chat metrics and visiting users with Google Analytics. Have a look at the video below to see a video tutorial of Volusion integration.
