Turning off chat notification sounds

You'll hear a bell sound when a new reply is posted to your chat. If you prefer to turn this off, click the Options icon (the three dots) at the bottom of the chat window. That link will pop up an Options menu:

Why don't we offer phone support?

We aim to provide you with the best possible support with the shortest wait time. To accomplish that, we focus solely on our online support channels: LiveChat, email, and our extensive Help Center. LiveChat is available every weekday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST, except for certain holidays. Our average wait time is less than 15 seconds.

We don't offer phone support because we truly believe we can provide higher-quality customer support through chat and email. Here are a few more reasons why we have decided to keep our support online:

  • LiveChat and email get you answers faster. Wait times for chat are typically less than 15 seconds, and most emails are answered within a business day. No phone trees or hold music. Just tell us how we can help you; a real human will quickly answer you. 
  • Online support takes less time because it makes it easy for us to quickly see your past conversations with us. You won’t waste time re-explaining issues or answering repeat questions. If your issue ever needs to be escalated, you won’t have to start over at the beginning.

Our Customer Advocacy team comprises a small group of talented people located in Eugene, Oregon, who are dedicated to upholding our core belief of helping small businesses succeed. We do this by answering questions, solving problems, and helping you build your business plan.

If you have any questions or feedback on this, please feel free to contact us:
