DOOFINDER ‑ Search & Discovery , 819 avaliações
I did love this app when it worked however searches even by the exact name are not working for me. I have reached out twice for help once 20 days ago and second time 12 days ago. I am cancelling my service. Too bad, it was good while it lasted but customer service seems to be lacking once they have your money. I even pay for the upgraded plan and am paying $129 US per month. Save your money and find another app.
We sincerely apologize for not meeting your expectations and the inconveniences caused.
We fell short in providing the level of support and service you deserve.
As per our meeting yesterday we understand that it is now solved to your satisfaction. Thanks for giving us that second opportunity.
This app was great until sales stopped as the product stopped working. I called my sales rep several times at the number on his contact page. There was no answer and no way to leave a message, I sent three emails to tech support with no timely response. I then emailed my sales rep directly, and he returned my call. I was only made aware of the DOOFINDER failure when a customer called saying he could not find a product. I tried to search for this product and other products only to discover the app needed to be fixed. The loss of revenue highly aggravated me, and I conveyed this to my sales rep. He then laughed at me, saying I was the first customer in the U.S. with this problem, as they knew many European customers had this same issue. My sales rep. blamed Shopify for the issue, saying it was utterly Shopifys fault the app did not renew and had stopped functioning. DOOFINDER wiped their hands of any responsibility only to offer two days of free usage and to create a brand new account, starting all over again. Another major flaw with this app is that it does not allow you to create the correct related products relative to the product found. WARNING if you want to constantly keep tabs on the performance of the app you are paying a premium for then this is the app you want. DOOFINDER is unreliable and not functional. WARNING stay away for this application!
Clearly, we did a very poor job in assisting you, which, quite understandably, left you feeling helpless, frustrated, and unsupported. Unfortunately, a series of very rare and unforeseen circumstances occurred that both caused a failure in your shop and prevented our support team from quickly identifying and resolving the issue.
It seems like we also were not able to explain our proposal to compensate you for the inconvenience.
At this moment, it sounds like you have completely and totally given up on trying Doofinder.
If that is not absolutely the case, we would be grateful for a second opportunity to assist you...
We will reach out to you by email.
This companies pricing structure is absurd. It's not based on "searches" it's based on api requests which turns out is each item it pulls up in the search. Got 15 bacon t-shirts? Well, that's 15 requests for 1 search. To make things even worse their search app by default split up all of our products into variants and then showed each variation (color and size) to the customer instead of just the main product itself, so we had 6,000+ requests the first day after 133 customer searches which oddly enough didn't result in a single sale (15 bacon shirts, 6 sizes, 6 colors = 540 requests per customer search. Trial is for 1,000 requests). It's almost like they intentionally want to milk the customer for every single request possible BY DEFAULT! Just based on that one day of use, we would have to pay $400 a month just to keep this app running.
Please accept our sincerest apologies for all the inconveniences we have caused. We have looked at the very unsual volume of requests. It seems to be related to a setup problem that ocurred in our side. Nothing to do with the variations of colors and sizes (these do not trigger additional requests). Actually the real "search" related volume of requests has been 133.
During the 30 day trial you have unlimited requests totally free. We are trying to contact to see if we can help you solve this.
Again, please accept our sincerests apologies for all the troubles we have caused.
A useless app that does what our normal search engine does unless you add loads of add ons and the prices for everything is astronomical!
Because of this I cancelled our subscription only to be charge AGAIN after I unsubscribed and deleted the app!
Crazy pricing structure, better to go for apps that charge by the amount of products you have, rather then api request
Clearly we've done a terrible job at explaining how it works, and it seems we have created significant frustration in you and in your team. Please accept our sincerest apologies. If you haven't given up on trying DF we will contact you via private message.
Durante el periodo de prueba funcionó increíble, pero desde que lo contratamos está teniendo muchas fallas cómo que los clientes no puedas dirigirse al producto que ven, o agregar el carro. Pagamos 2 meses sólo para empeorar la experiencia. Aún estamos esperando la devolución de dinero y que eliminen nuestra tarjeta de crédito
Sin duda algo no ha funcionado bien y no hemos sido capaces de ayudar en tiempo y forma para resolverlo.
Suena como que quizá ya sea demasiado tarde y eso es totalmente comprensible dado que no hemos estado a la altura.
Sin embargo vamos a contactar directamente, esperamos podamos tener una segunda oportunidad de hacerlo bien.
Aucun service client, aucune aide pour nous aider à la configuration du module , nous ne recommandons pas,
ont dois se débrouiller seul
Nous vous avons certainement déçu. Nous n'avons pas pu vous aider à la configuration et vous vous êtes senti abandonné et sans aucun support.
Nous pensons que le problème est causé par l'utilisation du plan gratuit de base et nous n'avons pas été en mesure d'expliquer pleinement jusqu'où vont les fonctionnalités de ce plan.
En ce moment, il semble que vous ayez déjà pris une décision totalement irrévocable et sans aucun retour en arrière, ce qui est tout à fait compréhensible. Sinon, nous serions ravis de vous aider une deuxième fois.
Nous vous contacterons par e-mail.
This is a good app, however I only gave a 1 star rating as this did not work 100% as an out the box solution. The app needed to be adjusted slightly in order to work perfectly with our store, and unfortunately the team at DooFinder are unable to offer any type of coding help and I was advised to get an external developer to help.
The app itself is great and has lots of features, however the price for these features in our opinion are very expensive compared to other solutions.
Overall this is a good solution if it works with your store straight away. Its a shame that the 2 minor issues we faced with the scrolling and mag glass could not have been resolved, otherwise we would have used this app for a long time.
Our recommendation would be to try before you buy.
There are at least 2 terrible about this app. 1) They constantly send silly ads to subscribe to their apps. Too much spam. 2) After the free trial period is over, the original search bar is not working. I had to delete the app in order to make it work again. They provided no useful info or help regarding this issue.
We hear you and you are totally right. We were only trying to contact you directly to help create a smooth and useful setup...
Please accept our sincere apologies. We are very sorry we caused troubles to you and your business, and what's more, that we annoyed you.
STOP NOW - In almost a decade of using shopify I've never written a review. This is the first time I've felt so strongly to do so - listen up. The pricing is less than transparent. Every single time the search updates it counts as multiple requests and out-of-the-box it updates *on every single key stroke*. The whole app appears to be designed to maximize your requests and force you into a higher plan. When I spoke to customer support they had to get a second person to weigh in on how to reduce these requests and that person said "they weren't supposed to say it". Even after disabling all the features arguably designed to maximize your usage as suggested by the "rogue representative" there's still constant drains. I entirely disabled the automatic product synchronization and still got over 100 requests counted for product synchronization for the day. This is before we even discuss the black-hat practices of the search itself. For the 44 searches performed yesterday 1,144 "requests" were made. Every single search on your website will count as a minimum of 26 "requests", so when you're looking at pricing take the plan you want and move two steps up, if not three. This $100+ app is being replaced by a $15 app that does the same thing with clear pricing based on product catalog size.
On behalf of my entire team, From Sales to Customer Success, Support, Development and our R&D teams, please accept my sincerest apologies.
We try our utmost best in all spheres, but this time, we undeniably screwed up.
Thank you for taking the time to write the details of all that went wrong. Even though it's embarrassing for all of us to read, details help us understand and diagnose where things went wrong.
I am contacting you directly to apologise in person, and if you don't mind, to get some additional feedback so we can have a better understanding of what went awry.
