The one-time price of this solution ($539) is for ChatPlus software and setup only. It doesn't include a monthly fee of infrastructure (server, service) to support this feature.
ChatPlus solution includes 2 parts:
- ChatPlus app is installed on your phpFox site. It provides front-end functionalities of Chatplus on the web version, APIs for mobile apps and communicates with Chatplus server. This app can be installed and upgraded within AdminCP as other apps on phpFox AppStore.
- ChatPlus server is to process and store all chat/ discussions. It is necessary to note that video call processing is always an intensive-CPU task. To avoid a significant impact on performance on web and mobile apps when having too many video calls, the ChatPlus server should be installed on the different server on which the phpFox site is installed on. You can refer to the ChatPlus setup guide.
