Is the $7.50 Zoom Add-On monthly payment for both memberships?
If you are both a ZIN™ & SYNC Member, by paying $7.50 monthly you will get the Zoom Add-On on both accounts. The $7.50/monthly charge covers both ZIN™ and SYNC licenses.
I already have a Zoom Business Plan. Can I change my plan to the Zoom Add-On?
You can choose to keep your Zoom Business Plan with Zoom directly, or you can cancel it and add the Zoom Add-On Upgrade via ZIN™ or SYNC to get our special price for Zoom Business.
I already use Zoom Basic, can I continue using it with ZIN™ or SYNC Studio without getting the Zoom Add-On?
Members may continue to use Zoom Basic through ZIN Studio™ and SYNC Studio™ in the event that they don’t upgrade to the Zoom Add-On, as they’ll continue to have the option to manually enter their Zoom Basic URL as they currently do to post their Zoom classes on www.zumba.dance and on www.STRONGNation.fit.
If I upgrade to the Zoom Add-On, what can I use it for?
You can use the Zoom Add-On to livestream your Zumba® and STRONG Nation™ classes, as well as any other fitness classes through ZIN™ and SYNC Studio™ (even for personal use!). Any classes or personal livestreams that are not Zumba® or STRONG Nation™ classes will be listed as private, which means you can market them by sharing the link to the class details page, but they won’t show up on www.zumba.dance or www.STRONGNation.fit. Zumba® and STRONG Nation™ livestream classes will automatically show up on www.zumba.dance and www.STRONGNation.fit unless you manually mark them as private
Now that you’ve announced we can use Zoom Add-On for other fitness classes and personal use outside of Zumba® and STRONG Nation™, can I also teach other fitness classes via ZIN Studio Pre-Record and ZIN Studio Livestream?
You are approved to teach other fitness and exercise classes (e.g. pilates, yoga, barre, etc) using ZIN Studio Livestream and Zoom Add-On. Due to music licensing restrictions, you cannot teach these types of classes using ZIN Studio Pre-Record.
With the launch of the Zoom Add-On, will the Pre-Record and Livestream options still be available via ZIN Studio™?
Yes, you will continue to have the option to use ZIN Studio™ in three ways:
  • ZIN Studio™ Pre-Record
  • ZIN Studio™ Livestream
  • Zoom on ZIN Studio™
With the launch of the Zoom Add-On, will the SYNC Studio Pre-Record option still be available via SYNC Studio™?
Yes, you will continue to have the option to use SYNC Studio™ in two ways:
  • SYNC Studio™ Pre-Record
  • Zoom on SYNC Studio™
I am using other 3rd Party Platforms to teach my livestream classes via ZIN™ or SYNC Studio. Can I keep using it?
As of the launch of the Zoom Add-On upgrade in early January 2021, it will no longer be possible to post third party livestreams other than Zoom on ZIN Studio™ and SYNC Studio™. If you previously listed a class on a third party platform before January, those classes will remain active on www.zumba.dance and www.STRONGNation.fit until January 31, 2021.
If I choose to teach virtually outside of ZIN/SYNC Studio, including Zoom Add-On integration, what are the approved platforms I can use to teach?
In addition to ZIN/SYNC Studio, you are permitted at this time to teach virtual livestream classes through other closed platforms like SKYPE, Google Hangouts, 8x8, Whatsapp, and FB Messenger Rooms, so long as no recorded video of your class is publicly available once it ends. Please be aware that you cannot teach virtual classes on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram or YouTube (as teaching classes publicly on these platforms hurts our community of instructors and might result in your social media account being disabled for not having the appropriate music licensing).
When will I get access to my Zoom Add-On?
Immediately! The day you sign up for the Zoom Add-On, you’ll be able to start hosting Zoom livestreams through ZIN and/or SYNC Studio.
If I get the Zoom Add-On, can I cancel it any time?
Yes, you can call our Customer Care team, and they will help you downgrade if you no longer want to continue with the Zoom Add-On. The downgrade would be effective at the end of the month and no refunds will be provided.
If I list a class via the Zoom Add-On on ZIN/SYNC Studio, how will a student be able to access my class?
If it’s a Zumba® or STRONG Nation™ class, they can access it via www.zumba.dance or www.strongnation.fit, or via a direct Zoom link you will get when you create your class listing on ZIN/SYNC Studio. If it’s not a Zumba® or STRONG Nation™ class, students may access it via a direct Zoom link you will get when you create your class listing on ZIN/SYNC Studio.
If a student pays me via “Other” payment methods like Venmo, Cash app etc, how do they get access to the class?
You can provide them access to the class using the Zoom link you will get when you create your class listing on ZIN/SYNC Studio. The link can be found on both the confirmation page and your “Upcoming Class” tab.
How do I start my Zoom Add-On class?
Go to the ZIN™ or SYNC Studio “Upcoming Class” section and click START CLASS. You can only start class up to 15 minutes before the class start time.
Will I have time after class to chat with students?
When you schedule a Zoom Add-On class, you can start it 15 minutes before the class starts and it’ll automatically end 15 minutes after your class endtime. You can use those 15 minutes after class if you want to stay and chat with them.
Is there a limit on how long an individual Zoom class/call can be via ZIN™ or SYNC Studio?
Yes, classes can be scheduled for a maximum of 3 hours. When you schedule a Zoom Add-On class, you can start it 15 minutes before the class starts and it’ll automatically end 15 minutes after your class endtime (for a total of 210 minutes). You can host as many 3 hour classes as you want per day as long as they don’t overlap.
What is the participant capacity via Zoom Add-On?
You can host up to 300 participants.
Will my students still have to create an account on zumba.dance/strongnation.fit to access classes?
Yes, if they access the class via zumba.dance/strongnation.fit they will need to create an account. They won’t need to do so if you share the direct Zoom class link.
I just paid my annual/monthly Zoom payment directly to Zoom. Can this be refunded or applied to Zoom Add-On?
No, you will need to work through any previous cancellation fees with Zoom directly, or you can wait until the end of your pre-paid Zoom contract to then move to Zoom Add-On via ZIN and SYNC.
Is there a way to convert my current Zoom account to Zoom Add-On so I don’t have to set anything up again?
No, you will need to work through any previous Zoom accounts with Zoom directly, and if interested in upgrading to Zoom Add-On via ZIN/SYNC, you’ll need to sign up via your ZIN/SYNC Membership page.
Who do I contact if I’m having technical issues with Zoom?
Please contact Zumba Customer Care and if needed we will escalate to Zoom.
When will I be charged for the Zoom Add-On? If I’m a 6-month and 12-month payer, how will payment work?
For monthly payers, you will be charged the Zoom Add-On with your monthly membership fees. If you’ve already made a 6 month or 12 month ZIN or SYNC payment, you will be charged for the Zoom Add-On at a prorated rate of $7.50 per month for the remaining months of your 6 or 12 month ZIN/SYNC membership.
Am I able to use Zoom Add-On on the ZIN Studio Livestream App?
ZOOM Studio will not be available on ZIN Studio™ Livestream app as that app was designed to provide a separate solution from Zoom.
Am I able to use Zoom Add-On on the Zoom App?
When you create a Zoom Add-On class on ZIN or SYNC Studio, and start the Zoom Add-On class, it will open the ZOOM app on your mobile device or desktop. You will not be able to schedule classes on the Zoom App if you are signed up to Zoom Add-On. Your students however, can access your Zoom Add-On class either through the link in your zumba.dance or STRONGNation.fit class details page, or directly through the Zoom app with a Zoom link you provide.
What if I already have a Zoom account and it is integrated with my payment system? Will it still work with Zoom Add-On?
If you already have an account directly with Zoom and you are taking payment via a third party payment supplier like Square, then if you sign-up to Zoom Add-On, you can either take payment through ZIN/SYNC Studio, or you can continue using your own payment methods and manually share the class link with students who have paid you
If I sign up to the ZIN/SYNC Studio add-on, do I have to teach virtually from my phone, or can I use a laptop, desktop, tablet, and/or phone?
You can teach from all types of devices (phone, laptop, desktop, tablet) with Zoom Add-On.
Will I have access to my ZIN Play/SYNC Go apps through Zoom Add-On?
You can use ZIN Play or SYNC Go if you are connected to external speakers and using Zoom on your desktop or another device. However, if you are teaching from the Zoom Mobile app, you cannot access ZIN Play or SYNC Go from the same device as the app does not allow you to do so.
What music can I use to teach on Zoom and are there any music restrictions?
You can use any music you want for your Zoom Add-On classes, but please keep in mind that teaching livestream classes generally requires you to have a public performance license with one or more of the Performance Rights Organizations located in the country in which you are livestreaming. This license gives you the right to stream music during your classes, including your Zoom Add-On classes. Each country has their own Performance Rights Organization(s) and the license is generally not too expensive. If you are already paying for a performance rights license (to teach your in-person classes), this license may also cover your virtual classes - please contact the Performance Rights Organization(s) in your country to confirm. Should you have any questions concerning music licensing issues, please send them to ip@zumba.com.
Can I teach my other fitness formats because I already use my Zoom subscription for that?
Yes, you can teach any dance, fitness or exercise format via Zoom Add-On.
If I don't upgrade, can I still have my Zumba and STRONG Nation Zoom classes posted on zumba.dance and strongnation.fit?
Yes, you can continue to list Zoom classes even if you do not upgrade to Zoom Add-On on zumba.dance and strongnation.fit.
