How to contact Blackpurl Support 

Option 1 - Chat Bubble

  • The option is available to all licenced users and is accessible directly from Blackpurl by clicking on the icon which is at the bottom of all Blackpurl screens

  • It will open up a Chat Bubble for you to ask a question or raise an issue with one of our Blackpurl Support team members

  • If we cannot identify who you are and what Dealership you are from, our Blackpurl Support team member will ask you for your email address and what Dealership you are contacting us from

  • Please also be aware that you may need to refresh your Chat Bubble as you may have lost connectivity due to inactivity etc or if you are contacting us from multiple computers, then your chat thread may not be listing all of our replied chats 

  • Please note that there may be times that Blackpurl Support cannot answer your Chat Bubble straight away but please leave your details and full details of your issue and we will endeavour to answer it as soon as possible

    For example - a chat that simply says, "help it is broken"

    There is not a lot of details for Blackpurl Support to work with, we would need to go back to the chatter to get more details 

    A better chat would be - "my name is Cathy Price from Dealership XYZ - I am having issues with Customer Order 123 as it is not closing out and I don't understand why not"

  • Blackpurl Support maybe also need to turn your Chat Bubble into a support case so that we can do additional investigations but we will let you know if we are doing this

Please note that Blackpurl Support may have limited staffing around statutory holidays / public holidays etc  

Option 2 - Knowledge Base Portal

Option 3 - Emailing

  • If you have a support issue all users have the option of emailing our Blackpurl Support team at

What is the role of Blackpurl Support

  • Blackpurl Support is a resource that is available to Blackpurl Users that will assist them in the use of Blackpurl - as it has been designed

  • Our Blackpurl Support team members will endeavour to provide you with clear and concise answers to your support questions/queries but there will be times when we will need clarification on what you are asking

  • In some instances, Blackpurl Support may be unable to resolve your issue straight away ie an issue that may need to be escalated through to our Blackpurl Support Development team but Blackpurl Support will ensure that you are advised what is happening with your support case 

What is the definition of a Support Issue

  • Blackpurl is not functioning as required and/or as expected

    • User error 

    • Bug - it is a product-related issue

  • Data integrity issues 

  • The Dealership has already researched their issue in the Blackpurl Knowledge Base but cannot find an answer and/or not are understanding the information in the articles/videos

  • Changes to Users ie moving around licences or resetting passwords

  • A different scenario and/or specific Dealership scenarios that are not covered by our articles/videos

  • Dealership Processes - Blackpurl Support will only advise you on how Blackpurl is designed to work

    It is up to the Dealership to decide what your Dealership's processes will be 

  • The dealership has a specific request ie data fix etc

  • Accounting Integration - if you have questions about the integration between Blackpurl and your accounting package

    It will assist if you please provide full details and screenshots of what you need support for

What is not considered to be a Support Issue

  • Training

Blackpurl Support will endeavour to answer your questions but sometimes it may end up turning into a training session instead. Unfortunately, due to time restraints, it is not possible to do a training session as part of a support case

If you require a training refresher, please ask our Blackpurl Support to set you up with access to our Blackpurl Training Academy

If you would like one on one training, please put through your request using this resource - System Settings > Support, Upgrades and Add-Ons 

If you would like just a Q&A session, please email and indicate that you would like to set up a Q&A session

During the Q&A session, we can go over all your questions in one go

Please keep in mind that this is NOT a training session but a simple question and answer session 

  • Users contacting Blackpurl Support about the same functionality over and over

Please do not get offended if we ask you to keep details or emails that we send to you so you can refer to them again 

  • A call / chatter that continues beyond a reasonable time or there are so many things you need to be covered

Our Blackpurl Support team member will take the relevant details so they can investigate further without staying on the call/chatter

  • Activations

    All activation setup/issues/data/questions should go through our Activation Team

Once your Dealership has gone through your Blackpurl Activation Project, your Activation Specialist will let you know when you have been handed over to Blackpurl Support

Once you are Blackpurl LIVE, if you are having issues with your Activation data etc, then please reach out to Blackpurl Support and provide full details of the issues 

  • Feedback / Suggestions

    Blackpurl Support is happy to pass on your product feedback or suggestions to our Product Team

It is the Product Team that decides which feedback/suggestions will be developed etc and in what time frame 

  • Accounting Questions

    Whilst we can assist you with questions regarding how the integration between Blackpurl and your Accounting package works, all other accounting questions, we may not be able to assist

A few things to keep in mind:

  • that we are Blackpurl Support only - we are not Xero or QuickBooks Online support 

  • If your Dealership has manually changed and / or deleted integrated transactions from your accounting package, we will be unable to assist  

  • Please do not be offended if we advise you that it is not a Blackpurl Support issue (ie the integration worked perfectly) and that you need to contact either the Xero / QuickBooks Online Support or contact your accountant

  • Please remember that we are not accountants so we will not be providing accounting advice 

Most Importantly 

Please remember that our Blackpurl Support Team are here to help you - we want your Dealership to succeed

Our Blackpurl Support Team will treat you in a professional and respectful manner and we would ask that at all times our Blackpurl Support Team are treated with the same courtesy
