This was an app that I really enjoyed as their customer service was quick to respond and the functions were great.

We were one of the early users when they were still offering their $9 basic plan but most of the functions have now been removed from us due to the pricing change. We wrote in to customer service explaining our situation, and for a small brand like ours, it's impossible to be paying $149 per month to retain all the features which were available from the plan they promised previously. Most apps out there would still reward their old customers who've been with them since day one, but not in the case of Growave.

It's truly disappointing and now we need to find another review and loyalty app that can fit into our budget. While I appreciate the help that the team has provided for us since day one, this experience has left us speechless.

Even though I told them not to call me, they kept calling from different numbers, asking me to change my review. Stop calling me!!!!! It's your APP real issue. Other customer need to know how it works!
The social login function doesn't work at all!!!! I have send the issue video. But the support just say they have tested and it could work.. But I can't work either my friend.
Now they asked me to create an account then could use the social login function. If so why it is called social login???? All we want is customers don't need to create an account and easy login. Too bad. Bad product bad service! Stay away from this app.

I had the worst experience with this app. And even worse with the customer service. Even though I used app support to set this up. My website was down for 4 days. It was a very expensive fix. How this was handled by growwave… well they lost a customer. Don't recommend it:

I'm currently using this app but I don't think I'll be using it for a long time, the inability to customize the rewards page is really limiting. In addition to the fact that it is not possible to have a LOGIN button when loading the page, which makes usability compromised by the user, because to log in he has to click randomly inside the page to see the log in button.
I asked to make this button visible right away, but it seems impossible to implement. I'm not satisfied at all.

Absolutely horrible experience for my customers and myself ever since installing this app. Be prepared for a LOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTT of wasted time trying to get customer support to actually help you get anything done when there's an issue- they just want to blame it on Shopify when it's really all on their end

If you're migrating reviews from another platform, do not let Growave do your migration. During the sales demo call, I was cheerfully reassured that they have an expert development team who could do the full migration of my reviews from Yotpo to Growave. Not so. I prepared the csv file according to what I was told but each time their developers tried to import them, customer service would email saying something needed to be changed. The launch of my redesigned site was delayed because we were waiting to get all the old reviews in place. This happened 6 times and each time, it took 2 days to find out it wasn't what they wanted. This cost me almost 2 weeks.

I've migrated from platform to platform before and have had issues, so it was expected to have to alter the csv a couple of times. But it became ridiculous. Despite everything being in the right place on the csv. Over half of the review images were missing. Every review imported as being from an "unverified" customer, so I had to go through and verify 500+ reviews.

There was an empty field for a review heading, so the reviews looked incomplete--(all my reviews had headings but I was told to take that column out, as their app didn't allow space for headings). So I manually added all of the headings.

Not wanting to wait for them to fix it, I added all the missing photos to their respective reviews. Then realized that my review comments---which can't be edited or removed via the dashboard--were showing up with strings of symbols in place of apostrophes, making it look like I don't know how to use punctuation. I asked for the review comments to be edited by their devs and was told they couldn't be changed but they could be removed (this is always customer service emailing, btw...they don't let you communicate with tech support or a developer at any point). So I said sure, just remove them and I'll add them back in later, with proper punctuation. As long as they didn't overwrite any of the updates I'd made the week before, that was fine with me. Customer support said the dev team wouldn't overwrite anything I'd added (photos, verification, review headings).

Before 100% giving them the green light to remove my review comments, I reiterated that I DID NOT WANT THEM TO OVERWRITE MY EDITS. I'd spent a couple of full work days manually updating everything the import either missed or entered wrong.

3 days later, the devs completed the review comment removal and when I checked their work, there were 150+ less reviews showing up in my dashboard. Among the 399 that were there, the ones I manually added photos to now had zero photos. The review headings were missing and there were unverified customers again (they were all verified and I had fixed that!). I realized that what they did was they exported the reivews to a new csv, made some changes and then reimported it without adding new fields for verification status and review headings. So basically their new import overwrote all of my edits. I honestly can't explain how all the images I had added disappeared...

At that point, I told customer support I was going to leave a frank review and uninstall the app, request a refund for the 2 months I paid them ($49/month). They got back to me right away and said they were so sorry and would give me 2 months free, plus the dev team would make everything right. I agreed to give them a second chance but a week later, the work had not been completed yet. When asked, customer service said they were very busy and that it wouldn't be done until the end of April---again, ridiculous. I said this was unacceptable and I wasn't going to wait weeks more for them to fix the mistakes they made (and this was not something I could fix, they make it impossible for you to DIY anything, the overlords have to do it all for you). Again, I let them know I would be uninstalling and leaving this review. I was begged for a 3rd chance and stupidly, I agreed to trust them yet again.

Just checked their "fix" and I see now that there are product reviews showing on the wrong product pages, the wrong images are showing on reviews and I'm still missing half of my review images. I can't believe I was trusting enough to let this go on for almost 3 months.

On top of the gigantic headache the review migration caused (not to mention missing my scheduled launch of our site redesign by 7 weeks because of Growave's tech support incompetence), the Rewards program is a disaster. If you've downloaded this app, be sure to dig deep into Rewards settings, paying special attention to the language used for automated customer messages (the ones triggered by members' actions). Many of them are worded in broken English and some are downright bizarre...lots of incorrect grammar and lack of punctuation, or coming across as totally unprofessional and even unfriendly.

If you're operating in the U.S. and are planning to use any of this program's features, I recommend combing through all the automated messaging to fix errors and make them sound at least a little friendly. If you are migrating reviews, I also recommend adding your reviews--no matter how many you have--manually. Don't let their sunny sales team chirpily talk you into handing that over to their version of the Wizard of Oz, the silly, incompetent fool trying to control everything behind a curtain.
For some reason, it seems impossible to perform a full migration of all reviews with their associated photos intact, despite having your csv perfectly constructed to match the template.

For the record, another weird thing is the only full example name on their csv import template for reviews is...Sasha Gray. Which at first made me laugh but after the hell they've put me through, I think this company is really being run by a bunch of snarky kids who think they're outsmarting everyone. Not only is this app not worth $49/month, I feel like they should pay me for my time and for the last 3 months of lost revenue. Now I'm back to square one, starting over with a different app. Wish me luck.

Dear Fit for a Pit team,

First and foremost, I want to sincerely apologize for the issues and inconveniences you encountered using our platform. Your detailed feedback is invaluable, and I assure you, that I read every word attentively. 🙏

Our primary goal has always been to provide users, including Shopify store owners like yourself, with impeccable service. I deeply regret that we failed to meet your expectations during the review migration process. Despite our efforts to ensure high-quality work, challenges can arise. However, addressing these challenges is our responsibility, and unfortunately, we fell short in your case.

I'm pleased to inform you that we have undertaken serious measures to rectify the issues:
1. We have significantly improved the review migration process, paying special attention to images, verification, and headings.
2. We've launched updates to enhance our platform's functionality, particularly concerning review migrations.
3. We have also revisited and optimized our loyalty program settings, with a special focus on refining automated customer messages.

To further assist our users, we have prepared a Quick Guide on How to Migrate Reviews ( This guide is designed to provide clear and concise instructions, ensuring a smooth migration process without complications.

The mention of "Sasha Gray" in the CSV import template was inappropriate and did not align with our professional approach. This oversight has been corrected.

Your constructive feedback provides us with an opportunity to learn and improve. Regardless of your decision regarding our platform, I genuinely wish you continued success with your Shopify store. 🤗

Best regards,

Do not leave negative review - for your peace of mind.

No notification when you exceed your orders limit. You are out of answers when customer asks you how to apply reward, because you have no clue and have dig it out. Points aren't calculated correctly in British Pounds. You'll have to adjust every order (when customer spotted) manually.

If you want pease of mind, please do not leave negative review.

I have my all windows closed from incoming calls and emails from this corner shop.

Concerning the currency Setting, our app relies on the base currency set in your Shopify Settings, and it converts the amount at the market exchange rate based on that setting. If you allow us the chance to speak with you at your earliest convenience, we would like to make it right so we can get this sorted out as soon as possible. 🙌

Large increase in price with no real viable upgrades. I reached out to customer service and was pretty much told to downgrade to free or pay a lot more for you're already getting. No grandfathered pricing. The installation was supposed to be straightforward but took multiple E-Mails to customer service to resolve since the migrated data was not integrating into their service as intended, the original price point made it worth the try. Once everything was running as intended, I gave feedback to them as the schema that google uses to pick-up on reviews and display them in search was completely missing. Afterwards, everything worked fine and as intended. Adding new features and incentivizing an upgrade is what they should have done as opposed to locking all the current features behind a massive increase.

I used this app for over a year and it was a big mistake for our store. I would say that in the last year or so I received only a couple of reviews and I couldn't understand why. I changed from this provider to another and started getting reviews immediately. The cost of using this program is immeasurable to us.

I have ran into three major bugs so far. They still have at least one huge bug right now.

1. They had a bug that allowed somebody to share to Facebook over and over with no time delay and generate fraudulent gift cards out of thin air extremely quickly. Somebody ran up probably 750,000 points or so in one evening by doing this on loop. I spent an entire weekend trying to disable the fraudulent accounts and cards.

2. Woke up this morning four months later to see that people are still able to order products that they never paid for, with gift cards that were created out of thin air, that were disabled four months ago. This is a big deal, this was $75,000 created before I realized what was going on, four months later it's still not fixed.

3. There was also another bug that rewarded points for using points which is ridiculous, and it still didn't work right even after the support team pointed out which setting should be used and was updated. I sell high ticket items so for example if somebody bought $10,000 worth of items, they got a $1,000 gift card, but then when they used that gift card, they were rewarded with another $100 gift card, then another $10 for using that one, which is absurd.

Tried to be understanding but if they're not going to take this seriously then everybody else needs to know about potentially huge issues with the app revolving around reward points and gift cards. Ones that you did not sign up for.
