When setting up your Quick Facebook Chat for the first time, you may notice that the chat box won't show up correctly or the minimized icon is unclickable:
There are several possible reasons why you don't see Quick Facebook Chat on your store.
1. You do not put the correct link of your Facebook page into the app settings:
Some customers just put in the name of the page, which is not correct. In order to fix it, please check your setting by following the 3rd step in this Tutorial.
2. Page restrictions prevent users who are not logged in Facebook or restricted from seeing the chat box
Some business pages are restricted to some specific countries and age limit. Thus, users who are not logged in Facebook (Facebook cannot recognize) or restricted by the page's restriction rules cannot see the chat box. In this case, it's needed to set your page to be visible to everyone.
3. You have not whitelisted your domains.
One more common reason that made Quick Facebook Chat can't show the chatbox or the minimized icon is unclickable is that the users forget to whitelist their 2 domains with their Facebook page setting. Please follow the 1st step in this Tutorial to have a good setting and make the app work perfectly on your site.
4. Your theme conflicts with Quick Facebook Chat's style that prevents chat box from showing on your store
This case is not common, but some stores have themes that contain special elements that conflict and prevent Facebook chat box from showing up on site.
5. Your browser has Adblock Plus installed.
Adblock Plus is a tool that people often use for their pages to strictly prohibit unexpected advertisements. However, it may act as a trouble to display Quick Facebook Chat. You can turn this off by following this instruction in the screenshot below:
6. Facebook Chat shows up with a blank box chat.
After installing Quick Facebook Chat and setting up the box chat, you might see it's totally blank on your site. The reason is that you have not chosen the option Message on your Facebook page yet.
