HubSpot , 25 reviews
ZERO STARS - BE VERY CAREFUL!!! I'm writing this as a public service. I was sold into a contract and told that Hubspot integrates well with Shopify which was not true for a heavy Shopify e-commerce business like me. READ the other reviews and ask LOTS of questions before you sign a contract. Some of the most simple of features you would "expect" aren't there. I asked to be let out of the contract of $1900/month as soon as I figured out it wasn't going to work for me, the onboarding I pre-paid over $3000 for did not happen. Taking days/week between responses from their team. After weeks of back and forth explaining why it was unfair to not let me out of the contract when I was misled by their sales, they offer to downgrade me but not cancel and still deciding on whether they are willing to refund the pre-paid onboarding that didn't happen. I've disconnected, removed my contacts and not using it at all. I am now taking steps to report them to authorities so this doesn't happen to other small businesses. I think Shopify should reconsider keeping this app available until Hubspot is held accountable for unfair treatment of their customers.
Extremely shady business practices. The salesman oversold us on the capabilities. Made us pay for "onboarding" only to find out onboarding is only to stay on top of your work and not any help. At every interaction, they tried to upsell more stuff, technical blocks etc. The software is extremely complicated and not for small to medium size businesses. To get any use out of it, you have to upgrade to enterprise level which is $$$$ and then you are left on your own. Still, there are features that require more upgrades. Make note that there is no trial period and you are on the hook for 12 months even if you realize a day later it was a mistake. We realized it in 2 weeks and they made us pay for 12 months. This is the most horrible experience i had in my 7 yrs selling on shopify. Make sure you research fully what you are getting into.
Awful app and they make it impossible to figure out how to uninstall. Without question one of the most useless Shopify Apps and customer support is unreachable.
not all properties are pulled from Shopify, for example, phone number... we need to add this manually, which is absurd, customer support not bad but also not great, never find the solution to problems, as I mentioned
The app connects well but it slowed our website down considerably. We lost 18 points on Google mobile page insights. Had to uninstall because of this.
Integration is key for our business model. The challenge is that not all properties are pushed from Shopify to Hubspot. The other issue is not being able to associate an order to an existing account. Sometimes users use different emails or purchase a unit for someone else. In Hubspot the order from shopify can only be unassociated from a contact email address and not associated with the actual appropriate contact.
Hubspot locked us into a contract costing thousands a month promising an awesome setup by one of their preferred partners. The hubspot partner signed us for all the hubspot bells and whistles, took more than $20,000 in fees and delivered nothing. Then Hubspot refused to discontinue our contract, after their preferred partner failed to install the product. Be very careful of any large contract with Hubspot, we were not informed of their policy to charge you regardless of the failure of their providers or partners. We were fooled into signing a contract for things we cant use for an extended period of time and hubspot has zero compassion for us or any other customer it appears.
not many features and doesn't really help with anything at all wasite of an app if you want my opinion.
Needed more support right from on-boarding. Support at the "Starter" level did not keep pace with the speed at which we were moving so we were unable to set up correctly before the busy season started. Am now locked into a contract for a year and Hubspot made it clear that even if it's not gonna work for me then I'm locked in and stuck with them. I got a sales call right before my expiry of one year and they put a deal together for me that would cost me even more, then messed up the terms and tried to charge me more. Hubspot is probably better suited for larger companies, as clearly they are too expensive for the little guy who wants to grow. Can do with Hubspot but it will run you over $1000/m. There are better CRMs out there with a better price take that offer more value. Just to the research.
Most Customers Phone Numbers are not being synced because Hubspot currently only syncing the phone numbers from the customer contact form, whereas the Phone field is compulsory in shipping details, so all our customers are missing contact numbers in contact details because they used email as a contact but they have given phone number in the shipping details which is not being synced. All our customers have phone numbers given in Shipping details Phone number field, but those numbers don't sync in Hubspot.
