1. I hear there is a new CallFire website and user interface. I’m a user of the previous version. How do I access the features on the new CallFire?

If you’re a current user of the previous version of CallFire, you will use the same URL — www.CallFire.com — to access our user interface. First, you’ll see the new site, along with the LOGIN button in the upper-right corner. Once you log in, you’ll be taken to the previous version of CallFire, where you can use our products as usual.

To create an account on the new CallFire, click on the yellow “Create an account" link at the bottom of that initial login screen mentioned earlier. Enter the appropriate information, and click on the blue Create Account button. Our system will recognize your login email address, and thus will send you to the previous site. Once there, you’ll need to call us at (877) 897-3473, or email us at support@callfire.com, so that we can personally switch you over to our new system.

2. Why did my payment fail?

There can be several factors, but a common one is that all or part of the address you gave us during billing does not match the address your bank has on file for your credit card. Thus, the address verification system rejected the transaction.
