It’s very likely that pop-ups are blocked by your browser. This way it looks like nothing is happening, while actually ZooEasy is showing a problem with your entry. So it’s important to allow pop-ups for the site http://www.zooeasyonline.com, so you can see what the problem is.
We wrote a blog about this too recently, or try Google search to find the specifics for your browser.
Here’s how to download your invoice:
First check the SPAM folder of your mail provider. Because the mail contains an Internet link it is possible that the mail ended up in the spam box for security reasons.
Some mail providers capture the mail before it reaches your mailbox. Then you will not receive the mail at all. GMX is an example of this. In that case, you can use a different email address when you create an online administration at our website. With an email address like Yahoo, Gmail or Hotmail, you will get the mail with the link you can use to request you password.
We have no notice when you would like to stop with ZooEasy Online. You don’t have to take action, but just stop paying your subscription. This will end automatically at the end of your subscription period. It’s a pity though. We’re sad to see you go.

A bank transfer is a payment made entirely offline. Due to the relatively long duration of the bank transfer and the high risk of errors, the bank transfer is not very suitable for the internet. Yet the bank transfer is still widely used on the internet, mainly because it is a known and trusted method for consumers.
How does a bank transfer work?
The bank transfer is a payment method where the buyer has the initiative. The buyer orders the transfer of money from his account to that of the seller (or third party who is authorized to receive the funds). This can be done by telebanking software or by filling out a transfer form and send this to his bank. Many banks also offer the possibility to order the transfer of money by phone.
Advantages and disadvantages
Costs of bank transfer
A bank transfer by a transfer form is free for individuals. When the buyer orders a transfer by phone, the bank can charge these costs. These costs vary by bank.
I’m a customer. What should I do to start a bank transfer?
To start a bank transfer, the buyer needs to have a bank account and transfer forms. These forms can be obtained from your bank and are generally free of charge.
How does docdata payments handle your bank transfer?
Docdata payments processes your payment. This means that docdata payment receives your money and pays it to the shop owner where you bought something. When docdata payments receives your money, the shop owner will be notified. You won’t notice this. The only difference is that you will need to mention the account number of docdata payments on your transfer forms. This number is displayed when you will chose for a bank transfer to complete your transaction.
If you would like to know more about docdata payments, you can contact the Business Service Desk of docdata payments which can be reached at email@example.com. For more information about bank transfers you can contact your own bank.
You probably only entered this animal today. The inbreeding percentage is calculated per animal by night, every night. Tomorrow you will see a percentage with this specific animal.
However, there is a possibility that tomorrow (and the days after) the term ‘Recalculate’ is shown. In that case the inbreeding percentage can’t be calculated due to the fact that, somewhere in the pedigree, an animal appears as it own ancestor.
If this error occurs in the parents/grandparents/great-grandparents of the animal check the pedigree of the animal. In that pedigree you will soon see which animals appear as their own ancestors.
If you can’t find the error in the pedigree you send a mail to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. In that mail you ask us for instructions on how to detect the animals that occur in their own pedigree.
Your account needs to be connected to your contact number. Send a message to ‘email@example.com’ with the request to connect your account to your contact number. In this mail you mention the contact number and contact name to which we need to connect your account to. Please check this carefully before you send the mail. We only execute this connection once.
In the screen ‘Index data’ of an animal you see the term ‘Breed %’. This field contains the percentage of a specific breed the animal belongs to. The first 3 positions form the abbreviation of the breed. If the abbreviation of the breed in the base tables is not entered, this is shown by three asterisks. The breed percentage is calculated per animal by night, every night.
If no percentage is stated but the term ‘ Recalculate ‘ is shown, the percentage will be calculated the following night. The following day the calculated percentage is shown.
First you create an Online administration for the species that is most important to you. You import the data from this species from ZooEasy Stand Alone in ZooEasy Online. We have a roadmap to help you with this.
Now ZooEasy Online contains the data of your most important animal species you have two options;
1.. You take one (or more) additional ZooEasy Online subscription (s) in which you import an animal species per administration.
2. You contact the helpdesk. We discuss the possibilities and the next steps with you.
It is possible that multiple administrations are present at the server, waiting to be loaded. At the end of the import process you receive a number related to that queue.
Another cause may be the amount of photographs and/or documents in your administration. The scale of your administration can be another cause. Next to that your internet connection can also play a significant role. If the connection is somewhat slow it takes longer to upload your administration.
I’m following the roadmap importing Stand Alone database in Online. At step 4.4, I have saved the file ToOnlineDatabase.zip in a certain folder. If I go to step 7.7 and try to find this folder, the file doesn’t exist. What to do next?
Possibly your database is so large, that the file couldn’t be saved by the program of ZooEasy. Luckily, we have another solution. This is the ‘new step 4’.
Step 4: making the ZooEasy Online file
1. Go to Windows explorer (press the buttons with the windows flag and ‘e’ at the same time)
2. Search in the left part of your screen for the C-disk and click it once.
3. Search for the folder ‘ZooEasy’ and click it once.
4. Click on the folder ‘ZooEasy v12’. At the right of your screen you now see several folders and files.
5. Search for the file ‘Repair’ and doubleclick it. Now the screen ‘Database Maintenance’ opens.
6. Click on ‘Export to Online’. When this is finished, you will receive a mention.
7. Click ‘Ok’. Now you will find the file ‘ToOnlineDatabase.zip’ in the right part of your screen among the other files.
Now you can proceed with step 7.7.
Clicking on the link ‘Email the administrator’ sends from the newly opened window, about the shown record (animal/breeding pair/contact/result), an e-mail with url to the manager of the administrator. Depending on the subscription type (Forever Free / Single User) you could be sending the e-mail to yourself.
By using this e-mail functionality please be aware that you are not sending e-mails to the ZooEasy Online helpdesk!
If you wish to send an e-mail to the ZooEasy Online helpdesk, containing an url on a record you have got questions about,
please first send an e-mail to yourself or the manager of your administration through the ‘Email the administrator’ functionality
and then forward that e-mail, uring your regular e-mail program, to the ZooEasy Online helpdesk!
For amounts less than 1 Euro credit card is offered as payment option only. This has to do with provisions which are to be paid to our payment provider. For payment options other than credit card, fixed fees are charged which are just less or just above 1 Euro. For credit card payments we have to pay a percentage of the final fee.
The Multi User version has more features than the Single User program, especially for the possibilities to add extra accounts. These features will be automatically added to your role once your changes are registered (after payment), but will be visible to the user when you logout and login again. The Multi User version allows you to login with multiple accounts at the same time. That makes it perfect for groups of breeders, like herd books and associations. The Single User version only allows 1 account to login to ZooEasy.
Follow this roadmap to import your current ZooEasy Stand Alone files to your new Online database: Roadmap.
It’s important to know that ZooEasy Online works differently from your current Stand Alone program. This means that you can’t import all the files directly. In this article you will read which files can’t be imported and which files you must add manually: Import your files in ZooEasy Online.
In order to avoid complicated calculations must be performed to calculate the rates for the new accounts, the accounts can only be purchased again when the subscription is changed or renewed.

Please let us know, we’re here to help you at the ZooEasy Online helpdesk.
Forever Free is almost the same as the payed subscriptions. But there are a few differences. ZooEasy Online contains an import feature. This feature is not available in Forever Free.

Forever Free is limited to 25 animals. (You can add an unlimited amount of animals to a paying subscription).
