Shopify Inbox , 1,644 reviews
Shopify inbox is all spam. It’s a waste of time and detracts from actual customer engagement. Wish it were more reliable and could filter the bots out.
Hi, there. I understand how frustrating it can be to receive spam messages, and that your time is much better spent helping customers. You do have the option to block a conversation, though I know this can also be time consuming if you're receiving spam from multiple users. While we can't block spam entirely, we'll continue to look for ways to reduce it. Thanks for taking the time to share your review! -Sophia, Shopify Support
As long as there is chat, the program keeps sending emails, one for each line of conversation.
Even if you cancel all notification options in the settings, it will still be the same.
Frustrating, no technicians to fix or advise.
Thank you for taking the time and bringing this to our attention. It looks we'll need to take access your account in order to get a closer look at the issue and collect some logs for our development team. Please visit the Shopify Help Center (https://bit.ly/2AWw5VA) and we'd be happy to assist you through live chats or emails. Cheers. -Elias, Shopify Support
I deleted this app due to spam messages. Shopify's solution to block one spammer at a time is impractical. Shopify support couldn't help.
Hi, there. Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. I can definitely understand how having the ability to block spam converations in bulk would be helpful. We're always trying to improve our features, and I'm happy to pass your feedback on to the development team. -Erin, Shopify Support
Infelizmente muito fakes e SPAM a todo momento, chegando a 5 mensagens fakes querendo se passar como membro do SHOPIFY para vender algum serviço, mesmo eu bloqueando aparece novos...
Unfortunately, a lot of fakes and SPAM all the time, reaching 5 fake messages pretending to be a member of SHOPIFY to sell some service, even if I block it, new ones appear...
I don't really know how Scammers have figured out the brand new shop I literally just opened 3 days ago and it is set to private I haven't even added a product yet and I keep getting scammers all in my inbox like crazy. I'm not able to report them either, every single other app that has a messaging system has a report button. This is a problem and it needs to be fixed ASAP

Removing Facebook messenger and Apple business chat takes all the appeal out of this app. Terrible move from Shopify.we will be looking for an alternative and will exploring the possibility of taking our business to another e-commerce platform.
Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, we truly appreciate it. We can completely understand the benefit of having that as a feature for the app. I've gone ahead and shared your feedback with our developers to consider in future updates. - Blair, Shopify Support
Every time there is a message it emails ALL admin personel.
Sure you can turn it off for everyone but you can't pick who gets the messages. So all or nothing. Chat support has yet to get back to me.
Hi, there. Thank you so much for your valuable feedback! I do want to clarify that each staff member can adjust their own notifications for Shopify Inbox. Simply login and head to Inbox > Notifications and adjust as needed! - Skye, Shopify Support
It blocks the whole page and does not let the visitor exit. If they reload the page, it loads back up. This is a horrible experience.
got told by support to change the colour and icon when this is not the issue, (tried anyway)
Hi, there. Thank you for providing this feedback. It sounds like there could be a technical issue occurring here. We recommend testing this is out on a freshly downloaded version of your theme. If it doesn't occur in this theme, it is a theme error in your live theme. Please reach out to our live support for more assistance!
I've seen a HUGE reduction in the number of customer chats since installing this app. It's because Shopify inbox FORCES the customer to enter their name and email address. This will turn off the majority of browsing customers who may just need a little advice to convert.
Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, and for sharing your experience with us.
For context, the system prompts visitors to enter their email address to allow merchants to follow up and continue any further communications, even after the visitor leaves the store. I can completely understand how beneficial it would be to disable this feature however, as I'm aware that it'll allow merchants to quickly address their visitor's concerns.
I'll submit the feedback that you've shared here with us to the relevant development team. Thanks again for leaving your review. -Kimi, Shopify Support
I recently tried using Shopify Inbox, but unfortunately, my experience with the app was terrible. The app has potential to be useful for managing customer messages, but the frequent spam messages from Nigeria made it nearly impossible to use effectively.
I reached out to tech support multiple times for a resolution, but was disappointed to learn that there was no solution available. The only options I was given were to uninstall the app, block the spam messages, or go to another website that's not on Shopify.
In addition to the spam messages, I also noticed that the app significantly slowed down my website, which further impacted my customer experience.
Overall, I cannot recommend using Shopify Inbox due to these issues. Until these problems are addressed, I would advise anyone to steer clear of this app.
Hi, there. Thanks for leaving us a review for Shopify Inbox. We appreciate that you took the time to provide us with some feedback. At this time, there is no way to block folk from sending you a message, but you can block a user once they've contacted you by clicking the ! in the top right corner. This will prevent this person from reaching out to you any further. While not a complete solution, we hope you take advantage of this feature. I'm happy to share your feedback regarding a better method to prevent this sort of spam with the Team. -Imogen, Shopify Support
