I would like to share my experience both with the Click to Chat plugin and the tech support I received from @bhvreddy. The plugin does a great job and the technical support on the only issue I had to it (issue caused by the website theme, not the plugin) was rapid and on point! I highly recommend downloading and using Click to Chat!
2. August 2021
I see that there is the ability to indicate {price} -> Product Price (current price) Is it possible to consent the user to place its price (a sort of "make your offer") so that via WhatsApp the two parts could beging a negotiation? Thank you.
