Klaviyo: Email Marketing & SMS , 1.743 reseñas
Thought it was good until the experience was bad.
I began using this app a while back, everything was going smooth, for the most part. I was able to make Sign-up Forms and create Email Flows.
The Worst Part. I went on to make a new Shopify store, integrate Klaviyo, created a new account, and made a couple of emails using their templates. All of a sudden, I get logged out, tried logging in, "Your account is inactive". Now, when this happens there is nothing you can do other than create a new account.
To contact support. In order to remotely talk to anyone on there, you need to buy their subscription ($20 minimum) before you can even bother to ask for help. Their "Live Support" isn't even real people, it's just some virtual robot that can't even help you other than recommend useless articles that are a complete waste of time. And then in addition, they take forever to email you back so God forbid you had something immediate you needed help with.
Overall, this company is a 0/10. If I could go below a 1 star, I definitely would, that's how terrible they are, honestly. It's already enough of a headache running a business and the last thing you want to have is a company that isn't willing to help unless you're a paying customer, nor take constructive criticism/ feedback on how they can improve. Look for a better company that is willing to help you when you need it, not leave you in the shadow.
Whoever's reading this, have a wonderful day, stay safe, and keep growing as a person!
I have to say I’m not impressed with the customer service. I have had to explain the same issue several times. I sent pictures and a video clip showing my issue and it has still not being resolved. Instead I keep getting people sending me videos of how the same thing. I don’t think I’ll will be moving forward with this app. And I have wasted a lot time trying to set up flows
A dreadful, user-unfriendly app. It seems like you need a degree in computer science just to navigate the basics.
For example, I wanted to create header links in the welcome series template but no obvious option to do so anywhere. So I saved that email into templates, and again, no apparent way of adding header links in the header bar.
I thought it would be very simple to do this but apparently not. On top of that there is NO support for newcomers, they just robotically refer you to irrelevant articles that don't answer the question. I also heard that when you do have a paid plan for support that some of the subscribers are having lots of issues with it.
A nasty app, stay away.
Thanks for your comments and we're sorry you're having trouble with header links.
When you click on the header bar in your email template, a menu will show up on the left side of your screen. In the content section, you can add links for the header bar and set the font, color, size, etc.
Hope that helps!
Here is a more complete guide to using the template editor. https://help.klaviyo.com/hc/en-us/articles/4407911841435
1st, extremely expensive. Was paying $80/month for a small list of 3500. I switched to shopify email, which is free and has the same functionality! I now use shopify for all email campaigns and automated flows.
2nd, their billing system is screwed up and they refuse to admit it. When you sign up, they ask for your mailing address, but then automatically copy it over to your billing address without asking. So they ended up charging me incorrectly for sales tax, which they refuse to refund.
Hello. So sorry to hear you switched to Shopify email and for the sales tax issues. If you'd like to email email@example.com, we can see if we can help.
So far, terrible. 0 Onboarding. Just a "Take a look at our guides and ask questions in the community". Erm... that isn't really what I'm paying $110 a month for... I expected someone to guide me through the process of getting things set up and ready to go. I'm not expecting someone to create anything at all, pop-ups, flows, lists. I am literally asking for the basics...
UPDATE: So after numerous requests and questions to support. They either don't want to help - or they just give you a standard link to a support guide. Do you honestly not think I tried that already??

Changed my plan from Free to $20 per month used 1200 emails out of my 5000 monthly limit went to send and email campaign with 550 email addresses got a message saying upgrade plan to $30 you have exceeded your profile limit. What is this? Totally confusing just cancelled my plan. Not very happy.
I wasn't worried about all the reviews about their customer service and they were right. They say all the right things to get you to sign up but when things go wrong they just want you to contact support who offer little help aside from sending you to DIY fix articles.
**September 2023** Customer service became so slow AND NOT wiling to deep-dive to help, just to close tickets**
I have realized I lost thousands euros, thousands!! In people not being able to go properly into the welcome flow. I have raised concerns, but support answered there were no issue. I decided to try by myself with a new mail address and I haven't received the welcome mail! I was right, and I had to be extremely pissed towards the support so that they decided to escalade the issue internally, explaining that indeed there was an issue, but the pain is here, thousands euros lost in welcome flow. My business is at risk, terrible.
Sorry to hear you're having troubles, the team has reached out to get all of this resolved!
Installing this app was the root of all disasters, basically no service, brought my website down, lost thousands of dollars in ad dollars, my website was grayed out and stuck, couldn't click on any pages, the fees were extremely expensive, When you increase email activities, he doesn't even have any reminder to increase the fee, and directly upgrades your fee in the bill. Rogue behavior, opaque charges, stay away from klaviyo, is away from disaster.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble. Our team will be in touch shortly!
They seem to have bots that create fake subscribers, increase your amount of contacts and force you to an higher price plan. Oh, and you need to get the higher price plan in order to reach customer support. Avoid at all point if you don't want to waist your time.
