4 Open Chatbot on Exit Hover

This feature allows you to display a pop-up box when the user is going to exit a page. Exit means the mouse moves in a way that suggests the user is ready to leave your site. Before the user leaves, display a pop-up box with a message or offer.

To work effectively, you need to create an Exit Bot that targets these users with a unique offer (e.g. Before you leave, here is a 10% discount on our product).

  1. Click the toggle to the ON position to activate this feature. The Select Bot menu displays.
  2. Select a Bot to display in the exit pop-up box.
  3. To limit the pop-box usage, enter the URL for each page you want the pop-box to display. The pop-up box displays only on the pages listed in this box.
