What's the difference between Help Scout and DelightChat?

Help Scout is a great tool. But it is built for any and every industry you can think of. It isn’t made for ecommerce. And this means it doesn’t take into account the unique problems and specific needs of your ecommerce business.

On the other hand, DelightChat was made to solve the customer support management issues an SME ecommerce business face. Our robust set of features like team collaboration, conversation-first approach, deep Shopify integration enable us to provide the best possible solution for budding DTC companies.

DelightChat gives all its features to all users, across all plans. No restrictions, no breaking the bank.
