Major reasons for cart abandonment include process complexity, lack of enough payment options, or technical issues. Proactively reach out to your uncertain prospects by setting customized in app chat triggers so you never lose a deal.


In-app chat self-service

Add answers to frequently asked topics as articles that users can access right from the in-app chat window so your team has more time to address bigger and unique concerns. Once updated in the web app or mobile, they're synced across platforms. When your articles don't suffice, easily direct the user to the right person based on the topic.

Got customers all over the globe? No problem. With real-time in-app chat translation, Mobilisten lets you interact with visitors in 33 languages—even those with right-to-left scripts like Arabic and Hebrew. You can also add articles in multiple languages.

We've tamed the GDPR beast for you!

Having customers from the EU doesn't mean extra work anymore. With minimal effort, you can include an implicit tracking banner or an opt-out banner in your app, add chat consent when someone initiates a conversation with you, password protect any file, and mask any Personally Identifiable Information shared on your in-app live chat.
