Archive Instagram & TikTok UGC , 46 reviews
Updated from 5 stars to 2 stars and back to 4 stars as of 11/13/23.
I was very happy being one of the first stores to try Archive when it first came out, and when it was reasonably priced/had a free tier. I dropped it to two stars when they made the price tiers absurd for a DTC store owner and removed the free tiers altogether to display the feed. Recently I gave Archive a try again when the founder Paul reached out - we've communicated back and forth for months regarding satisfaction and I declined an extended trial - as I would rather not use it if it was tiered like this, was firm on my review, and decided not to use it for the past 9 months since I made my second review update.
After a few months of re-adjusting and tweaking, to where it makes sense to use it - I'm satisfied again. The shoppable feeds make it worth it, and I am satisfied with how it is at my price tier though I can't say I'm a fan of it scaling off of store sessions. I just wanted to display customers who wanted to show off my products and I don't think that warrants a large expense that costs more than 4-5 apps combined from my base SaaS stack.
This review was not incentivized in any way, and I feel that it was fairly earned through pure attempts at trying to satisfy my needs and to make a product reasonably priced and logical for your small business owner. I think at its current state, I would recommend it to most. Will continue to update my review as time goes on.
