Possible problems


Chat button image is not visible


If you cannot see the chat button image on the Live Demo page, probably your agent app is offline and you've chosen "Do not show "Offline" chat button on my website" option on the Account Settings / Offline Settings page. To fix this, please perform step 1 from the instruction above and reload the Live Demo page.



Operator logins locked


If you click on the image of the agent app but the app doesn't login automatically, this means that operator logins on your account are locked.


Possible reasons:

1.Trial period has expired on your account.

2.There is an unpaid invoice in your account and grace period for payment submitting has expired.


Agent App image is not clickable


If the image of the agent app is not clickable on the Live Demo page, this means that there are no operator profiles in your account. To fix this, please create at least one operator profile on the Operators and Departments page.


Operator Console logins but the chat button is still offline


If the agent app logged in successfully but the chat button is still offline, please try reloading Live Demo page. If this doesn't help, please check if your operator is assigned to at least one department in your account.
