Papercups | Open Source Intercom Alternative
Papercups is an open-source live chat widget. Chat with your customers to improve conversions and customer satisfaction.


One of the outstanding features of Papercups is its ability to integrate with the workspace tools you already use. There's no need to switch between platforms or log into separate dashboards. Whether you prefer Slack, your mobile app, or our dashboard – you can reply from there, making it easier than ever to keep track of customer conversations.

Additionally, Papercups puts a strong emphasis on customization. You have full control over your widget's appearance without the need for any coding skills. Easily change colors, greetings and text through a user-friendly interface. This ensures not only the functionality of your customer communication but also its consistency with your brand.
