Loyaliteit, Productrecensies + , 1.980 recensies
(Update on March 2023) Since my review below, the team did a brilliant job recovering. I had numerous feedback emails on my initial communication on where it falls short and actually, the development team came up with improvements. With the added feature of a dedicated page to communicate how-to earn & spend mechanism, it became so easy to communicate loyalty programs to my customers. Still, room to improve but it's a feature-rich app with the best value. Thank you Alice and the team.
(January 2023) Summary: (seemingly) solid products technically + thoughtful pricing scheme + mediocre setting experience
Still in the process of setting it up: which could have been done in a few days if supported properly, now extended over 10 days. Here is why i took 3 stars off.
1. For first-time loyalty program users, the tutorial videos are pretty useless. The video only covers, for example, "if you want to have a separate page on reward, pls put your custom domain here in this box and save". Then you come up with 10 different questions.
-> Why do i need to make a separate page on rewards (to promote your loyalty program in an attractive neat manner, easier for customers to understand the whole overview and hence increase the participation rate)
-> how to create a custom domain?
-> where to create a custom domain (on Shopify? GoDaddy?) and on and on. You are on your own to find the answer to technical & fundamental questions (e.g. how to design a loyalty program, what's the best practice, what's the common mistakes, how to communicate this to your customers when launching, how to name your program and different tiers). I had to spend weeks reading everything from Smile.io's blogs and videos to learn all these.
2. Important disclaimer is not made upfront or communicated where should be (the setting panel of each component, not at the knowledge article). For example "multiplier" in a tier is affecting all points given in that tier (review, birthday points, referral... etc, while common sense says the points from the purchase). This is not explained explicitly so i had to design my loyalty program multiple times.
3. I don't know whether this is a January issue while people are on leave or permanent. but the long queue on the support is frustrating. and people are working in tick-box mode and you get different people giving you the very first answers you got from your first interaction (that very link from the knowledge page. which is not even thorough). So conversation going in circles and the to-do list is getting longer. You don't get precise answers for your "precise question" but they keep on sharing that how-to article (which i read about 10 times before contacting them) and move on.
4. Had 7-8 service agents who didn't know about their product features precisely and to detail. They all told me there is no option to give "points" for referrals to my customers (so my customers can accumulate their points in a more meaningful way). Spent another week shopping for a different app that can do this at a reasonable cost. Once I started to set it up, yes you can. Who is responsible for the lost time?
I know I'm judging the book by its cover now because i haven't launched my program yet and gathered feedback from my customers. will update again. So far, very frustrating experience as the product is too good to ditch but the set-up process is just dragging.

The Growave app is a big bang for the money. We aren't even using all the features (yet), but the Reviews and Rewards alone have added a lot functionality for our store front. The app itself, because it includes so many features, can sometimes be hard to navigate or remember where you change certain settings. Customer service has been used frequently due to questions that came up, and they have been professional and responded quickly. They've also been able to help customize a few things for us. Overall good experience so far.
Hi Wildcubz team,

Thanks again for being a fantastic customer!
Growave team ✨.
If you are just starting out with your store, I would highly recommend Growave. It's also great if you already have a store but if you are looking to integrate previous reviews, this might be a daunting process to do by yourself (depending on which app you are importing from). With that said, Anna and the team at Growave was very responsive to my requests with formatting and adding different features to my online store. They also offer a loyalty program, wishlist integration and reviews all in one app. I like how they are all in one app to avoid integrating with third party apps and for collecting analytics all in one place. It also integrated seamlessly with customers and account creation on shopify making users create accounts with my store in order to access the wishlist, loyalty programs and to write reviews. I particularly liked this because it's always encouraged to have more users create an account with you.
I gave 5 stars and not 4 because the team at growave can help you with transferring previous reviews from other apps (if you cant do this process by yourself).

We've had Growave running for a while now but only just got around to really deepdiving into it and marketing to our customers. I had to prove all the functionality before I sent emails and got myself into a pickle.
So after playing with it I had a few questions on how it ran properly and the support person was very patient with my investigation and we were able to answer all the questions I had.
There's definitely some functionality which would make the platform better but you need to understand what each version you're paying for offers.
So far so good!
Hi, Tonight We Dine team,
Thank you a lot for the high rate of our team as well as our app, it is highly appreciated by us!🙏
We do our best to make the experience with Growave easy, and our customer support and developers team are always ready to support you with any requests that might arise.
We hope for a long and productive collaboration. 💖
This is my first experience building a shop site with Shopify.
As a Japanese person who is generally not good at English, when using an app made by a vendor other than Japan, it is difficult to contact the vendor's support team in English.
However, the support team for this app kindly responded to my questions and requests one by one.
Also, due to the time difference issue, it generally takes at least a day or more from the time I send the question to the time I receive the answer.
However, I have found this support team to be very responsive, within a few hours on average.
This app has three functions: "Wishllist", "Review", and "Reward". Regarding "Reward", there may be some resistance in Japanese business practices, but after testing the details of this function, I understand that it has a wealth of functions to increase repeat orders from customers.
I think that shop sites targeting Japanese customers are well worth using this app.
I think this app would be perfect with the addition of wholesale functionality.
My shop is a B to C shop, not a B to B shop. However, I would like to sell the product at a special discounted price to a special member customer.
A product can have a regular price and a member-only price, and when a member customer with a customer tag logs in, the member-only price is automatically displayed.
That's all there is to it.
There are certainly apps with such features, but they are either expensive due to a lot of unnecessary features, or as a way of discounting, many apps use a % discount method instead of a fixed price.
I hope that this "GROWAVE" app will evolve further in the future and have the simple and reasonably priced "Wholesale feature" that we want, like the above.
Finally, thank you very much to all "GROWAVE" support staff.

I loved the multiple features in one place idea, this allows me to handle them easily and save me good bucks...App is really smooth - I wanted an additional feature i.e displaying wishlist icon on each product in the collection page view (grid) - I reached to them, Alex was so spot and added it to my website with an hour. Such quick and spot on support help us a lot.
I am looking forward for more apps from your team.

Great app and excellent customer service. The shop owner wanted a loyalty app with free product rewards, and this app had it and so many more great features. It's been a month and everything has been working great in the backend and for customers. Widgets are good, but the integrated pages fit our theme perfectly.
I don't think it was mentioned in the features, but the free product automatically adds to the cart when the customer redeems points, this is fantastic, because some other apps don't do this.
A big thanks to the growave support team for all their help during set up.

After more work and conversations with GroWave support, my current problems with import of reviews have been resolved satisfactorily. Persistence of Anna and quick response to my support requests, helped to mitigate the wonky import tool provided. Instead of several hundred reviews needing manual input, finally have it down to two dozen, very manageable. I do appreciate the support! Updated to five starts from four stars!
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Overall the experience has been very good. 95% of the time response to questions/problems have been stellar. Any updates/fixes have been promptly applied, and 95% of the time brings the system to full and correct function.
I am moving from a legacy theme to a new 2.0 theme, and I am being cautious as I configure it to my needs; the legacy theme continues to be my 'live' theme as I work with multiple app providers. GroWave has been helpful and patient in my questions and have been helpful.
One incident has not been corrected and I have been patient for the fix. In order to move forward, I have manually imported about 100 entries so there would be something for customers to look at in the new system.
As a previous database/server director for a mid-size company, importing/exporting data from different systems was a well known task for me. Unfortunately the import of my few hundred reviews (from an app for which there was a template) fell well short of good; that is, it would not import any of my correctly formatted entries. Error messages were not well defined and the response from support helped to define the problem; these 20 or so entries could be handled manually. But after more than a dozen attempts at importation, the last three hundred or so had never auto imported successfully, thus the manual input. I am still hopeful GroWave will be able to help.
Thank you for sharing your feedback and experiences with Growave. 🥰 We're delighted to hear that your overall experience has been very good, with prompt responses to questions and problems, as well as updates and fixes applied promptly.
We apologize for the incident that hasn't been resolved yet, and we understand your need to move forward. Your proactive step to manually import about 100 entries is commendable, ensuring your customers have access to the new system. As someone experienced in database and server management, your insights are invaluable.
We understand the challenges during review import and error messages.Our support team is here to help, and we are dedicated to resolving any outstanding issues to ensure a smoother experience moving forward.
Please feel free to reach out if you need further assistance. We're committed to providing you with the best possible support.💖
We were looking for an app that could seamlessly integrate our app builder Vajro, and we ended up with Growave. It saved us the trouble of worrying about synchronicity among different features we'd like to have and the extra time needed to figure out how to make different apps work together. On top of that, the support team was very helpful. Masha and the team helped implement 10+ edit requests within a few hours, which is valuable for our team without any developers. I would recommend this app for its functions. They deliver their promises! Keep up the awesome work, team Growave. ;)
Hey SkinDaily.com team and Caleb,
It was very kind of you to take the time to give us your feedback, and we are very grateful to all Shopify users for doing so.
Masha passes her thanks as well 🥰.
Having our customer support managers make you feel welcome is very important to Growave!
Whenever you need our assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us! It is a pleasure for us to serve you✨.
I used this app to help me add a wishlist to my store, but I could not have been more pleased with all the features available even for my basic plan. I am able to do a rewards system with my customers and they're able to earn points to get rewards; which essentially helps them spend more. I was even having a problem changing something and the customer support I received was great! I got help from both Nurila and Aiperi and they were so helpful and pleasant! Great app.
Hi the team at Carrington Beauty, 💕
