UPDATE: Is there a way to block the spammers from Nigeria? I've had 4 in four days... seems that telling them to F*** OFF and GO AWAY and TAKE ME OFF YOUR LIST doesn't work on them!!!!

I'm not going to hit you with lower stars, because it does do what it's supposed to do... It's an AWESOME app... the customers love it. And I like the way it can come into my cell phone and I can respond quickly and personally. The customers rave over that.

The ONLY thing is that we do own two Shopify Stores and we can't figure out how to have both of them come in to my phone. While my son runs the other store, it's *me* the customers are used to dealing with - so I want to be the one answering the questions.

The glory of this app is NOT having to go log in to see if anything is there a few times a day - so this not being able to have multiple stores come in to the app is a problem.

IF you add the multiple stores, please make sure that we can see where the message is coming from when the customer sends one.

THanks so much.

Hello, there. Thank you for sharing your review with us. I understand you have some problem customers you are looking to block from your Shopify Inbox. Our latest update includes the option to block certain users and conversations. In a problematic chat box, simply click on the exclamation point in the top right-hand corner.

As for using the app with two different stores, they can easily be switched between via the Shopify Mobile app. If using this method, you can view the messages related to each store in your Apps > Shopify Inbox section. If I am missing a particular pain point here, please feel free to elaborate on it so we can include your feedback for consideration.

OMG I wish we had had this a year ago when starting Ive no idea why this is an app and not standard for all shopify stores. Ive been after a thing where i can log in check mail and orders all in once place. I hate going to my emails to read what customers want via a contact form thats linked to the email account. I've found it much better than shifting through hundreds of emails where customers who want things are mixed up with sales emails.

[ Update: Rating this app from 3 to 4 stars. The Shopify Inbox team actually listened to my feedback, enabled customers to upload images, and fixed the integration page on their app. Thanks for that. However, I discovered a few more issues: 1. I integrated Shopify Inbox with Instagram, and when a customer chats from Instagram, it doesn’t show the customer’s name or username but instead shows, "Shop Visitor xxx." So we would need to go back to Instagram to check on the customer’s name or username, which is a hassle. It would be fantastic if you could display the customer's name or username, similar to how Facebook Messenger does. 2. I like the fact that this chat is visible on the checkout page as a button under the Total line, and when the chat button is clicked, the chat box is opened, but the color no longer corresponds to the theme’s chosen color. It appears to be black. It would also be great if this was fixed to correspond to the chosen color. ] __ [ Switched from tawkto for ease of sharing products directly from the chat itself and so that customers could track their orders directly from the chat. However, it would be better if customers are able to share images instead of having it sent through other means especially if they receive wrong or damaged goods or if they’re having issues on the website where they would need to share screenshots etc. Not having this feature would create additional hassle to the customer to email or WhatsApp us the issue. Also, there is a bug when the customer gets disconnected while chatting and when the customer resumes the chat, Shopify Inbox still marks them as ‘Customer is offline. Your reply will be emailed.’ Another bug is that the integrations are not working. The integrations page is just blank when clicked. Nothing happens. Will update this review if the customer upload image feature is introduced and if the bugs are fixed. ]

We understand that you'd like to see further improvements for Shopify Inbox, such as being able to share screenshots or images and to resume the chat when customers reconnect, and we also appreciate you for letting us know that the integration page isn't working properly.
