Is that a free live chat?
We don’t offer free live chat plans; anyway our subscriptions are very affordable.
Need more time to get started? Open a Support Ticket >>, and we’ll extend your trial.
Try it free for 14 days (no credit card required). Save up to 33% with the yearly plans and upgrade, downgrade or cancel your subscription at any time.
How do I go online and chat with visitors?
- Visit your website and locate the chat at the bottom of the page
- Click on MENU > “Log in or Sign up.”
- Enter the e-mail and password you used to join Flyzoo
The main button will turn from “Leave a message” to “We are online”.
I need more time to test the chat, can you extend my trial period?
Sure, we’ll be glad to extend your chat trial if needed!
Can I test it on localhost?
Yes, but you still need to provide your production url when you sign up.
How do I embed a group chat on a page?
Log into the Dashboard, click on SETUP > LAYOUT & FEATURES and select the DOCK or USER LIST MODE
(the SIDE CHAT mode does not support embedded group chats). Finally click on SETUP > GROUP CHATS,
locate your chat room and click on “Get embedding code”.
(Please note: to embed a group chat you need at least the PRO plan)
Can I use Flyzoo for customer support?
YES. Log into the dashboard and set this configuration:
- SETUP > CUSTOMIZATION > FEATURES set the main button action to “Live Support”
- SETUP > LIVE SUPPORT ENGAGEMENT > customize the “we are offline/online” popups
- Visit your site and Log into the chat widget to go online for your visitors (see FAQ above)
Do you offer customer support?
YES. We always reply to support requests. Flyzoo Chat Support >>
How do I buy a subscription?
You can buy a subscription with PayPal from the Dashboard >>
How do I recover or change my password?
Will this chat slow down my site?
No, the chat is loaded asynchronously and our servers will handle all the chat workload.
I removed Flyzoo but it still shows on the frontend, how do I remove it completely?
Probably pages are being cached. Please try to:
- clear your browser’s cache
- if you are using a caching plugin, force a refresh: this should fix the issue.
Otherwise, please check that you haven’t embedded the chat script into some .php file – like footer.php for instance.
Can I suggest a feature?
Sure, feel free to contact us.
