Quick Integration Guide

 

If you would like to add a chat button to a fixed position in your website (either in your footer or tied to any other position), please follow these steps.

 

1.At the first step we will generate the code for chat button. This should be the code for a chat button tied to a fixed position. For getting such a code, please follow to My Account / Chat Button Codes page and choose there 'Fully Featured Chat Button Code with Uploadable Online / Offline Images' then check 'Generate a floating chat button code' and specify vertical and horizontal position for your chat button. On the example the chat button is set to appear approximately in the middle of the screen tied to the right side of it. If you would like it to appear in the right bottom corner, define 0% from bottom and 0% from right

This integration method is fast and simple, however it does not allow choosing the pages to display the chat button at and theme position. If you would like to have more flexible opportunities for live chat integration, please check our tutorial for advanced integration.
