2.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.

Editing 3dcart HTML Template
4.In the Template Editor you'd need to insert the code for chat button which you generated on Step 2 to your home.html and frame.html. When you add the chat button code to home.html your chat button will be displayed only on your home page. Thus if you would like to show chat button on other pages, please add the code to frame.html too. It does not matter where you insert the code in home.html file. However, for frame.html we recommend adding it before closing </body> tag.

1. home.html file editing

5.Once you have inserted the codes, click 'Save Changes' button. The chat button on your website will look like this:
