I have very recently started using ZOTERO as a tool to import my references to my latex script. It´s working fine except for the websites I want to import. Instead of @online… they only appear as @misc…. So when I want to show the references with the \printbibliography, it doesn´t print the url and the date of access.

If you're getting websites as @misc in your exported .bib file from Zotero, you're exporting as BibTex, not as BibLaTeX. Zotero will export them as @online for BibLaTeX.
