💬 Smart AI replies in Inbox

The AI promptly addresses live chat inquiries using Al-generated responses powered by Shopify Magic. You can evaluate the suggested text, make necessary edits, and respond swiftly to drive conversions at the top of the funnel, effectively transforming more chats into successful sales.

Note: The AI doesn’t automatically send the answer to the customer, it needs to be reviewed and sent. It does help your live chat agents but they are still required to send the answers to the customers. Also, the capabilities are limited at the moment. However, you can check out the Manifest AI app if you are looking for a solution to replace 80% of your live agents’ bandwidth with spot-on answers to product inquiries, recommendations, and order-related support queries. It is free to use and also integrates with your live chat software including Gorgias for seamless chat transition to live agents when required.
