Kustomer Alternative: Why go with DelightChat?

Do you really want your data in the hands of anyone owned by Facebook? Use dependable software where your data is safe, like ours!

We’d like to tip our hats to the team at Kustomer.

They have done a great job in building a product that empowers large ecommerce brands to manage customer support. And if you’re here evaluating Kustomer alternatives like DelightChat, then you’re already on the right track for finding tools that empower your brand to deliver delightful customer service.

So what’s the difference between Kustomer and DelightChat?

Sure, we’ll have differences in the way our product is implemented, its design, certain feature set, and more of which you can find out about in the post below.

But one reason stands out more than anything else. The one reason to rule them all.

It is our DNA.

The founding team at DelightChat initially built software for small ecommerce and DTC brands. From the roots, we are built for the small teams, the underdogs, the ones trying to change the world from the ground up.

That’s why you’ll find DelightChat to be designed for ease-of-use (small business owners have a lot on their plate already). And a pricing model that’s affordable and enables your brand to get the best software, without breaking the bank.

We created DelightChat to be the best customer support software for small ecommerce & DTC brands.

Top reasons why DTC brands choose DelightChat over Kustomer.

Reason #1

A single screen to delight your customers

Do boring, clunky, and badly designed tools bother you? Well, it bothers us. For example, who would want a new screen being opened each time there’s a new ticket being opened? 

That’s why we created DelightChat, a customer service tool designed for the ecommerce industry that’s aesthetically elegant and quite simple to use. With DelightChat you can respond to your customer queries, collaborate with your team & perform certain Shopify admin operations, all from one screen. No need to move around tabs to respond to a  customer query. 

Reason #2

Developed for ecommerce brands

Kustomer is no doubt a pretty decent customer support platform but it’s built for all industries. It doesn’t take into account the unique problems an ecommerce business face every day.  

That’s not the case with us. DelightChat was born to solve the customer support management woes an SME ecommerce or DTC business face daily. Our extensive set of features like team collaboration, conversation-first approach, deep Shopify integration enable us to provide the best possible solution for budding DTC & ecommerce companies. 

Reason #3

Super affordable with top-of-the-line features 

Your business is unique and you probably have a different workflow to handle your customer service operations. With a pretty diverse set of features, DelightChat caters to all kinds of SMB ecommerce & D2C brands. Multi-channel helpdesk, team collaboration, deep integrations with Shopify & other apps - we got it all.

But unlike Kustomer, we don’t charge by the number of reps you onboard or add additional charges for ancillary features. If you like, go ahead and onboard your entire team. We simply charge by the number of conversations you have with your customers in a month.  

Reason #4

Easily collaborate with your team right from the main screen

Up until now, were you collaborating with your team over WhatsApp or Slack by sharing customer query screenshots? Or, maybe you’d be jumping between tickets within Kustomer to resolve a simple customer complaint? All that ends today. 

With DelightChat, you can collaborate with your team and respond to customer queries from a single screen. No need to juggle between different tabs or lose your way within the tool itself. 

Reason #5

Add as many reps as you want; we never charge extra

We don’t hold you in contempt for adding extra users, encourage unsafe practices like seat sharing, or create an “intelligent” pricing model that you will need 6 days and 7 nights to uncover the mystery. 

Unlike Kustomer, our plans are based on the number of conversations you have with your customers in a month. Add all your teammates, manage thousands of orders (or more), and connect your favorite apps to the account. You still just pay an uncomplicated monthly subscription fee.

Reason #6

Integrates with Shopify and other apps

Honestly, you don’t have the time to navigate different apps to find the basic (and necessary) information. DelightChat adheres to that idea by having deep integrations with Shopify and other important ecommerce applications. 

For example, before DelightChat, our customers would modify the wrong order because they searched with the wrong ID on the Shopify admin dashboard. Deep Shopify integrations mean the guaranteed peace of mind that you will always modify the correct order.

Reason #7

Conversation-first design

Most ecommerce tools are created to function as a ticketing system. If a customer asks a query or reports a problem, a ticket gets generated and you solve it. But your customers are humans and not just an assigned ticket in your support tool. 

That’s why we have built DelightChat with a conversation-first approach. The app interface gears you to have a conversation with your customer like a human, as opposed to just treating them like a lifeless ticket. Even when you’re replying to an email, it feels like you’re right there having a real conversation with your customer. 

Reason #8

Got more than one Shopify store? Connect them

We can feel the pain of managing multiple customer support tools if you run more than one ecommerce store. Running more than one ecommerce business on Shopify? Connect them all and deliver delightful customer support from a single screen. 

Reason #9

You can be up and running in no time

Unlike Kustomer where you jump through hoops just to start using the tool, you can start using DelightChat in less than 5 minutes. Our tool is so simple that you don’t need to talk to a sales rep, watch a 20-min explainer video, or sit through an hour-long demo.

We built DelightChat to be self-serve. That means you sign-up and start using it without anyone’s help. Our beta customers say that they could figure out the basic operations within a couple of minutes.

Reason #10

Best support from a small & caring team

We noticed this at our previous company SuperLemon that bigger companies like Kustomer don’t care much for SME ecommerce brands. They either have to wait a minimum of 24 hours for someone to answer their query, or they’re left to fend for themselves.

At DelightChat, we take great pride in providing delightful service to all our customers, whether they’re on the free plan or the paid ones. We love our customers and since we’re a small team (<10 members), we always put you first.

Turn customers into brand advocates with stellar customer service.
