    “64% of UK shoppers would prefer live chat versus calling for customer support” Wow I didn’t know the number was that high. It’s really encouraging for the live chat industry in Europe :).

    We just released our live text and video chat WP plugin few days ago and can’t wait to see it used by small WordPress online stores.
    You have some of our favorite tools in your list (ones who inspired us). I also saw a lot of posts about Tidio chat lately, have you ever heard of them? I know they have a much more basic solution than Zopim, Live Chat or we do but it seems to attract WP customers.
