I am trying to add Barc to my website, I paid for subscription, and barc still not showed on my site, unless I click on google add-on button. I called at least 10 times to barc at 234 567-9018, and no one answered. I just want to know is barc still in business?

I cannot believe i wasted 10 precious minutes of my life trying to configure this plugin! it seemed nice at the begging, but after i installed it, i realized how stupid it is, not working as it's suppose to be, and most of all, even the options that is not 'premium' are not working, i think out of decency you should remove the free version, because it isn't really free, it's just less that 10% of the whole package that should come together to get this plugin working as mentioned!
