I used this to do a two day hourly sale on products. App failed on my 75% of the way through. There is very poor control over products and finding them without a search mechanism is laborious is you have a large inventory of products. Also, products do not always show up in the order they are defined in the product queue and sometimes change without notice or reason. Biggest issue- many sale prices not moved back to regular after sale over. This app could be very useful but needs work and is not ready for production.

Hi there, I had reach out the customer via email after the review, but did not hear back. And just realized I never updated a reply here.

We tried reaching out to help this shop rectify any issues but did not receive a response.

We currently direct our users to build a collection in Shopify and we can sync products over. This helps workaround the search mechanism for now while we finish up our searching mechanism.

For the price reversion issue, we wanted to dig further into the shop's setup, and monitor logging to understand what's happened as we've found < 1% of the shop is having this issue and we think it is on Shopify's API end as we keep monitoring our traffic and calls. We are building more fault tolerance to make sure even in those cases nothing will fail.


This is a very excellent app and easily to install. I am highly recommend this app to SME if you are considering flash or time limited sales.

Also, I appreciate the valuable helps I received from Jeff Chen and the team when encountered some problems. Well done Droparoo and thank you very much from KimberlyBabyStore. :)

Ran a flash sale over the weekend and it reverted all of my sale prices back to the default shop settings. Styling was not great on the landing page and not a lot of options to fix the styling problems. Also, customers said they couldn't get the landing page to work and that for some it wasn't loading. Will not be using again!

Hi Paradise Galleries! We've reach out through the email that Shopify provided us with when you installed back on August 27th, 2018 and we did not receive a response. So we'd like to reach out again now that Shopify has added a reply to review feature for app developers.

While I could not verify your issues and help provide a resolution since we never heard from you after this review, we'd be more than happy to make sure everything is setup properly on your shop.

This is a great app and will feature prominently on my site. This app is highly recommended if you are considering flash or time limited sales.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jeff Chen and Colin Soleim. They both have been brilliant and their help and support has been top notch.

Well done guys and thank you.


Perfect app easy to install and easy to use thank you Jeff Chen.


Might be worth going with the 4.99 / month, more complete version as this one isn't as flexible.

Tried to use the app for flash sales over my black friday weekend sale. I set a queue, told it to rotate every hour, then added items to the queue and told it to rotate every 30 mins, after 3 hours the same first queued item was still the only item that every showed being on sale. Unfortunately I need an add on that works and I need it now so I am removing it but hope to try it again soon. Support is welcome to contact me.

Hey Magical Hoops and Gifts! Shopify just finally enabled review response, so wanted to send a response here. We reached out 3 times to see if you'd like us to help troubleshoot. If you'd like to try us again now 2 years later, we've made lots of updates!

The app is not working properly.
For example, i have an item that has full price of $100 and sale price is $80. And i want to run a flash sale and drop the price to $60.

The program would actually show that flash price is $60, comparing to $80 (so customers don't see what the full price used to be so they are not impressed with the sale).

What's even worse - after the sale is over, the full price changes to my previous sale price, so my item's full price became $80...i had to go in and manually change it back.

Also, there was no Daily deal option when i opened the app...Only Flash sale.

Great idea... But too many bugs...

Hello! LOoks like that was an issue we've since resolved soon after we received your review! Unfortunately shopify has not given us an option to respond to your review until now. But if you are still looking for a solution like ours still, we'd love for you to try it again. Our support is always available to help navigate the initial setup!
