GoOption operates a decentralized customer support system. It does this by providing different desks to attend to clients based on the issues they need help with. All contact with GoOption has to be made either through the online contact form, or via the live chat service.
For the online form, the trader must select the appropriate department from the drop-down meny so that the information filled on the form gets to the right unit. Otherwise, the live chat service which operates for 12 – 18 hours a day can be used.
