Nowadays, many e-commerce and companies try to integrate a chat feature to their website or application. There are 2 ways for businesses to integrate this feature. One way is, they build the chat from scratch by themselves and the other is they buy licensing or subscription from a third party chat SDK provider.

Both these strategies have their own advantages and disadvantages that must be considered before the company integrate chat feature in their applications and websites. The advantages and disadvantages are related to various factors such as infrastructure, development cost, and development time.

Chat infrastructure — is very important when it comes to chat features. First, the chat infrastructure needs to accommodate personal and group chat based on its business model. Depending on the business model, the chat infrastructure also needs to accommodate attachment like images, files, videos, location, and many more. More importantly, the chat infrastructure also needs to have a reliable security system. The system must guarantee all data and information that are sent through the chat feature is safe and encrypted from anyone or any organizations that do no authority to see it.
