How to Add Live Chat to Wix – Userlike & Wix

Adding live chat to Wix is simple. Follow our 3-step process and be up and running in just a few minutes.

Wix is a popular solution for building a unique online presence. With live chat, you get more people into your sales funnel and clear up their questions at an earlier stage. That translates to happier customers and higher conversions.

In this tutorial, we will show how adding live chat to Wix works with Userlike .

Tailor the chat to your brand

Before adding live chat to your website, you probably want to make sure it looks and behaves how you want it to. So let's quickly set up the basics.

In the Userlike Dashboard, you can set up your operator profile. We recommend uploading a photo – it’s always nice to put a face to a name.

Now we take a look at the Website Messenger. That’s the chat box your customers see on your site and that they’ll use to get in touch with you.

You probably invested a good amount of time into designing a beautiful Wix site. Of course, we want the Website Messenger to fit in smoothly. Adjust the colors and texts to tailor the chat to your brand. You see your changes in this little preview.

Those were the most important tweaks. You can always go back and adjust your settings. But for now, I’m happy with the messenger which means I’m ready to add it to my site!

Integrate the chat on Wix

For this final step, we go to the installation tab in the Userlike Dashboard under "Channels > Website widgets". What you see here is your unique Userlike javascript code. This might look a bit techy but no worries, it really is super easy. Let me show you.

  1. Just copy the Userlike widget code and head over to your Wix account .
  2. Once you’re logged in to your Wix Dashboard, click “My Sites” and select the site where you want to integrate the chat. If you only have one site, you will see it at the top of your Dashboard.
  3. Go to “Settings” in the left menu, then scroll down to the “Tracking Tools” section. Click on “New Tool” and create a “Custom” object.
