Offerchat is a free chat program that you can install onto your website. You can have unlimited users, unlimited chats, unlimited sites, and its all free. Their business model is based on outsourcing your chat to one of their live agents. Pretty genius idea if you ask me.

Here is how to install the Offerchat Live Chat Program on your Magento store.

First, determine if your theme has a head.phtml file. Navigation to:

/app/design/frontend/default/YOURTHEME/template/page/html/head.phtml

If you do not have a head.phtml file there, then check here:

/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/page/html/head.phtml

If still not there, check:

/app/design/frontend/base/default/template/page/html/head.phtml

You may have one in each, but edit the one in your specific theme. Most cases its going to be the first one.

Open up the head.phtml

Copy and paste the latest Widget code from Offerchat by logging into your Offerchat dashboard and selecting Widget Settings on the left, and then Install Widget. It should look like this:

<!--start of Offerchat js code-->
<script type='text/javascript'>var ofc_key = 'c858733869daca1e129dfef1fb13aa4e';(function(){ var oc = document.createElement('script'); oc.type = 'text/javascript'; oc.async = true; oc.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://' : 'http://') + 'www.offerchat.com/offerchat_widget.min.js?r='+ Math.random(); var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(oc, s);}());</script>
<!--end of Offerchat js code-->

Here is what our head.phtml looks like now:
