Worst SaaS experience I've had in the past 7 years running my company. When we started using DEAR Systems the costs was $40 USD per month. When choosing a SaaS provider for anything, you actually make a huge commitment and have to put a fair bit of trust in the provider. We had to integrate DEAR with various other services such as Xero. We created an internal knowledge base how to use it for common use cases, had initial set up costs, etc. We then populated it with years of data. Basically we were stuck with DEAR for life. Once we were fully locked into the system, DEAR made the absolutely outrageous move to increase their pricing from $40 USD per month to $375 USD per month for us. Unlike literally any other SaaS provider in the world, they did not grandfather existing customers with the original price, but raised the prices on everyone. In my opinion this is a predatory business practice. Price increases are fine - increase the price by 20% if you must, even on existing customers. But 10x from $40 to $375 combined with the extremely strong lock in? That honestly borders on being a scam. Now today what prompted me to write the review was another price increase by almost double from $375 to $625! As if this wasn't bad enough, DEAR Systems did not even announce the price increase but just started billing us twice the amount. DEAR Systems clearly hates their customers and can not be trusted. We'll be moving to a different provider as soon as possible!

We're paying thousands of dollars a month for broken functionality promised by the platform. Every month a critical fix for their native Hubspot integration is promised but never delivered. We strongly suggest merchants look elsewhere. Counting stock by hand would be more effective than using DEAR Inventory.

DO NOT USE IF YOUR BUSINESS INVOLVES SALES TAX. There are two major issues with DEAR Systems: The first is that their system is simply not reliable when it comes to sales tax (and frequent changes made to their system often breaks any sales tax matching that was already set up). On MORE than one occasion, these sales tax changes has resulted in thousands of transactions that required manual review/updates. The second, more unforgivable problem, is that once you sign up, it's painfully obvious that the well-being of your business doesn't actually matter, which appears to be a tone set from the top; we've certainly been disappointed on numerous occasions by co-founder and director Alexei Piltiaev's shocking lack of professionalism and respect and it would appear everyone else is following his lead. If you do make the mistake we did and sign up for this service, here's a pro-tip: When things go wrong and their team ignores you, the best way to actually get them to respond is post a negative review here. While your business doesn't matter, their star rating here sure does.
