App is good but support are rarely online, or at least not online during our normal business hours in the UK. So we send report requests then do not hear back for hours. With other apps at this price and of a similar nature there is always some support around to help.
Please accept my apologies for the recent frustration you've experienced. The GemPages Team always try our best to cover 24/7 across different timezones. Our sincerest apology if at some points you have experienced a longer waiting time due to our high volume of requests.

I've tried all of the major Shopify Page Builders. Only Shogun and GemPages are worth using. Shogun is a little more polished than GemPages, everything is a little more responsive and slightly easier to use, and their templates are a lot better. However, Gempages is a much better value. Even with their $300/month plan, Shogun doesn't offer unlimited pages. So for someone like me who uses Shopify as a blogging platform with occasional A/B testing, Gempages is a much better fit. I think that as GemPages continues to improve their product, they could overtake Shogun at some point. Edit Jun 2022: After using this plugin for a bit, I have to revise my rating. With lots of effort and working around bugs, it's possible to make pages with this tool. But it's a real chore. Stupid things happen all the time when you create pages: like text losing formatting, text having additional formatting you didn't give it, changes you make on mobile breaking things on desktop, or just simple things like there being no easy way to insert your saved custom blocks at a specific place on the page. I don't like using this tool and will be moving onto an alternative ASAP.

Great and abundant design features, easy to use and navigate, but otherwise pretty dysfunctional. Glitches often, isn't easily made compatible in all device versions, therefore making you go through loops to make everything perfect on all devices. Some things will stop working after they've been published for some time, such as buttons and links. Worst part of all: Their support team, or lack thereof. Sometimes emergencies occur and you need immediate assistance, but they are hardly available and generally not helpful. Responses take a long time. Typically if you're running a trafficked website and a problem arrises, you need help pretty quickly. Gem Pages doesn't seem to understand this. This has caused us issues many times. For example, one of our product pages has completely stopped working, which is a huge issue as an e-commerce store. Went to contact support (which is only available through a live chat) and got a message saying that they are on vacation for the next 7 days. You simply cannot operate like this when you're supporting the websites of service providers and e-commerces. Nonetheless, our custom-coded website is near complete and we absolutely cannot wait to never have to deal with Gempages again.
Really hard to use, very slow, they should have done an update way before, this app is cool but everything is hard to use
Support is HORRIBLE. If something isn't working, good luck! The only support is a bot, so it's impossible to get anything resolved. Software is great, which is why I gave it 2 stars. I couldn't get it to load on my Shopify page, emailed, watched youtube videos, tried the bot, and couldn't get it resolved. Now I want to cancel my subscription and there is NO information on how to do that either.
GemPages itself usually works fine, but customer support times are very bad! On friday, you will get the message that they return on monday. So if you have a huge bug or problem, you have to find a workaround or live with the bug for 4 days (which is a lifetime in ecommerce)!
Moreover, BEWARE OF THEIR ECOMSOLID THEME!!
The theme is FULL of bugs. For instance, it did not work to show the sales price correctly in one of their templates. Then they fixed it (took 2 days), but the fix was still wrong (now it also showed the sale price badge, even if it was not on sale...). Another example: on the product page, i installed the addon to show the stamped-reviews. However, suddenly the reviews also show on the homepage. I double-checked, the addon is not installed on the homepage. And since it's friday today, I will have to wait 4 days (!) to get an answer and have them start fixing their own bug. These are only examples, I had to open multiple tickets only due to bugs in the last 1-2 weeks.
The idea is great, but there are so many glitches and bugs that it makes it impossible to create a simple page without losing your patience.
Very slow and poor technical support. The app is ok, but pretty buggy if I'm honest. At present, I can't recommend this app.
I've been using this app for over 10 months now and have to say this app has GREAT potential. The amount of customization is amazing for the price. However, the rave stops there. The first couple months were great, but for longterm use this is not a good option. The amount of glitches have become too much for the cost. I would love to continue using Gempages because I've integrated so much of my website into their platform, but when you lose hours of work time recreating the same page over and over because something as basic as a save or export feature isn't working- its time to go. I've had to redo the product page on each individual product twice because their meta widget kept failing, I've had to recreate a simple blog post 3 times, the complaints are endless. Time is money and the frustration is unbearable.
Customer service was great the first couple months (or maybe my patience was just higher), but they seem to only give promises of improvements with nothing ever changing. I hope Gempages improves their issues, until then maybe my review will save someone else their time and money.
This app has a very cool concept and is fun when it is working but I have found it is just not worth the time and effort you put in. The customer service is great (Only Leah you should give her a raise). But sadly the only reason that I mention customer service is bc of the amount of times the app bugs up. The page when you are finish editing does not look like it does on the app, when you actually go to the website, so you have to work off that. Had a couple times where my page just wouldn't load at all. Had a section just randomly deleted that I spent hours working on. & the app is extremely slow. Defiantly not worth the money and time. Too anyone considering I would just suggest to go and buy a nice shopify theme so you won't have to waste so much time on random bugs. I wish the app the best though for the future as it would be really cool and unique if it didn't have so much problems. I seriously felt like I was dealing with an app in Beta. Sorry for the criticism but hopefully it will spark some improvements.
