BotStar

This is a perfect tool to help you save time with repetitive tasks, enhance customer experience. As long as you use Facebook Page or Website, BotStar is suitable for developing your business or project.While it is possible to create chatbots that can speak more naturally, it will require some programming knowledge as well as time to develop.

Chatfuel

Chatfuel is great for a small team looking to easily implement and set up Facebook chatbots for their clients for ease of community management, etc. Chatfuel is not necessarily meant for large scale operations that require complex workflows and chatbot requirements, it is limited to Facebook Messenger and is not 100% intuitive in this regard.

Alternatives Considered

BotStar

Easy to use interface and price are the two factors that made me decide to use BotStar. Compared to other chatbot platform, there are a few features that are not available or as diverse, but seeing the platform is updated monthly makes me confident that I have made a wise choice.

Chatfuel

Both offer bot service to reply to messages from Facebook. The difference is that Chatfuel gives you the option of being able to create conversion funnels or fixed conversation changes.
Connecting to our API is free from Chatfuel and integration with other providers has an additional cost.
AIVO has no option to create conversation flows if not through keywords.
