I am looking for a good marketplace chat plugin that allows buyers and sellers to communicate with each other. I am looking for the best plugin in terms of functionality, design and price. Thank you!
TalkJS is a good option and can be integrated into any site that requires user-to-user chat. However, being a SaaS product it can get expensive.
Another option that I recently used is CometChat. This is a PHP-based self-hosted chat engine available for exactly the same purpose (i.e., user-to-user chat) so you can set it up for chat between buyers and sellers. CometChat has a plugin for easy integration between the chat engine and your website. However, for deeper integration, you will need a developer to be able to hook it with your user system. Since it is self-hosted, you purchase it with a yearly-license which significantly reduces the cost.
