Affirm pay‑over‑time messaging , 28 reviews
We tried to integrate Affirm to our Shopify store and it was a nightmare.
We provided our banking + verification info only to get an error message.
We created a support ticket and instead of resolving the error, support told us to abandon the current email address and use a new email to make a new business account (makes no sense as our Shopify store is already linked to the original email account we were told to abandon.). After troubling our IT to create a new email address, we got an error and could not create a new business account.
This is a very buggy app, the FAQ is not helpful at all, the customer service is horrible, I am at the verge of just forgoing split payment.
Probably the worst customer support in the business for this type of app. No one is helping me and when they do reply all they say is uninstall the app and reinstall it. For such a major company, their customer service is subpar at best. Come on! I've had this app and it worked great. Now I have a new theme and it's not working and no one from Affirm is helping. How do you expect to keep your customers if you're not helping them? I need help ASAP with this app. UPDATE: Still no help from support. I would think if you want me to add your app on my store you would provide help besides directing me to a document.
The experience was bad. The app was installed, enabled, and active. But, it just never came up as a payment option. I uninstalled app still same problem. I researched and never found a resolution. I just want to offer my customers payment options.
if there's any merchant that's planning to deal with this company, please DONT do it , they don't have merchant support so is you have any question about something they will never help you and the phone number that shows as customer support doesn't work, I have an issue about getting paid over 2 months you can email as much as you want but they will never answer and do anything if you call them their answer will alway be " THIS IS NOT MECHARNT SUPPORT WE DONT KNOW ENYTHING " and they will advise you to email them but you You'll never get a response at all
They are definitely self righteous, acting as if they are better than God. From looking at these ratings it is very clear that they don't care about their merchants, just the money they collect from the consumer. But then again the guy who founded Affirm is so rich now he doesn't have to care.
Im only giving this 2 stars because it requires coding and I am not a coding expert and don't even know where to start. Affirm's directions on integrating the app/service is vague and isn't helpful at all. I need them to update their directions on integration as if they're explaining it to a 2 year old. I sent an email to support 3 hours ago, and still no response... Feeling hopeful and helpless at the same time.
I have not been able to successfully integrate this app into my paid Shopify theme. If it is this problematic to get it up and running, I am concerned about problems our customers might have using the app; especially in light of similar experiences cited by other users. Given that the 5-star and 1-star reviews are about evenly split, I suspect there is a quirky issue buried somewhere in the app's coding. The customer's success with apps we use on our site directly impacts their experience with us, so I am willing to err on the side of caution by not offering Affirm as an alternate payment provider. Hope the issue is remedied down the line so we can try again.
I'm only giving this 1 star because it requires coding and I know how to code. BUT Affirm's directions on integrating the app/service are vague and aren't helpful at all. there only email you back the same lame instruction. no phone support at all.
SHOPIFY STORES BEWARE. DO NOT INSTALL AFFIRM. I just had a TERRIBLE experience dealing with them. 1. NO MERCHANT PHONE SUPPORT. Just EMAILS. If SOMETHING IMMEDIATE COMES UP - like FUNDS GOING TO THE WRONG ACCOUNT or SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY, GOOD LUCK GETTING AN ANSWER IMMEDIATELY. 2. INCOMPETANCTY - I changed my account details and had it confirmed, but my funds were still transferred to a DIFFERENT ACCOUNT AND THEY CAN'T TRANSFER THOSE FUNDS BACK TO MY NEW ACCOUNT. 3. NO MERCHANT SUPPORT. 4. I also found their widgets spazzing on my website which confused my customers. DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP.
