Both Zoiper 3 BIZ and Zoiper Classic BIZ support the callto protocol.  Zoiper 3 Biz also supports Click to Dial

1. Callto

Enabling Callto in Zoiper Classic:
Options ->  General options ->  Automation / Integration ->  "Catch the 'callto' protocol request from URL"

Enabling Callto in Zoiper 3:

Settings -> Preferences -> Automation -> General ->  "Catch the 'callto' protocol request from URL"
You can manage the protocol associations using the "Manage protocol associations" button below the checkbox.

Supported protocols are :


You could setup a link in your excell sheet (MS Office only) or on your website:

"Escarina Smith <8008>"

< a href="zoiper://8008">"Escarina Smith <8008>"< /a>

When you click it Zoiper will start and dial it.

2. Click to Dial

Click to dial transforms the phone numbers written on a webpage into clickable numbers.

You need to enable Click to dial during the installation process (Windows, Linux).
The installer will place the ClickTodial addon if possible, then you might need to activate it manually in your browser's addons section.

For IE you will need to activate the addon manually in your browser setting window.
For Firefox you will also need to activate the addon manually.
Note that Chrome have limited the usage of addons not included in the Chrome store. Adding  the Click to dial addon in the Chrome store in our to-do list, however it might take some time.

The plugin for Chrome can still be enabled. Please follow these steps:

- Remove the currently installed plugin in Chrome.
- Go to the installation directory of Zoiper and locate the *.crx extension for Chrome.
- Copy the *.crx file to a location of your choice.
- Extract the *.crx file using 7zip or other archiving tool.
- Go to Chrome-Extensions and enable Developer mode.
- Select Load unpacked extensions, locate the extracted *.crx file and select it.

Now the plugin should be usable.

Instructions for Mac OS X:

Select "Applications"
Locate Zoiper and right-click
Select Show Package contents
Open Contents directory

Please note that you will need to have the numbers composed in the proper syntax.

Numbers composed properly look like this:

+44 154 22 2 3345
+(44)1480 854 383
+49 7246 / 70 53 2522
