HIT THE HAY
If you are in between Recart and Octane or any other Messenger marketing/bot and can't decide which one to go with, look no more. Octane is the superior option. Not only do you have most of the features of other bots you have great opportunities for marketing to get more followers such as click-to-messenger ads and a lot more. The only minus is the hefty price to be able to make flows. but you get the most features at the 9$/month option anyway. Not to mention the support, WOW, extremely fast and helpful. Shoutout to Megan and Milena who recently help me with a problem I had with my store. Go Octane!

With the current state of Messenger Marketing in 2019, this app is a goldmine! It is by far the easiest bot solution for Shopify stores and we saw crazy ROI just with the free trial! You can scale it up or down as you see fit, use the features you want to use that make sense for your store, and layer it with so many other industry standard Shopify apps. We were able to get up and running fully with all the bells and whistles within a few days. The Octane team has been super helpful and support is out of this world. They are constantly putting out helpful resources and truly care that you're making the most of your investment. Just the fact that the CEO is still involved directly in sales and runs an interactive Facebook group for people to get ideas, share feature requests, and more is super encouraging to see. Bravo, Octane!
I liked the app. The coolest thing is that you can create custom flows with your customers. Iеt's like flows in the email, but in the Messenger. Really cool feature. However, still, a lot of things needs to be improved. I used a lot of manychat and they have much more options when you creating a bot. But, they don't have abandonment carts and some cool features that have Octaine.
Great customer support, I worked with Megan. Got all my questions answered quickly and got this app easily integrated into my store!
I think this APP has huge potential. Their customer support is awesome.
Unfortunately if your market is not English speaking and you need to be able to translate button texts into your own language, then this APP becomes useless because ist not possible. Many buttons and certain Bot texts are fixed and cannot be translated or customized. Are real pity and a huge disappointment for us.
Hopefully the developer will change this. Shouldn't be so hard and they would open the App to more markets and avoid disappointment of users who find that issue out after they invested time to install and test the Bot.
Customer Support service is great! Milena from OctaneAI is helpful and responds very quickly (:
Has ton of useful features which other apps don't offer
Straight off the bat, and before I even completed the trial this app has recovered nearly $4k of revenue at full margin. FB Messenger marketing and figuring out how the subscribers, rules and nuances work is definitely a learning curve, but what isn't?!
Once you get your head around it, you'll be miles ahead of the competition. Our first ad was picking up subscribers at 7 cents per user and this will be a major focus for us now.
Support from Matt has been great, including pre-built flows and ideas for content and in chat support that helped my understand the whole relationship and rules around Interactions, Subscriber and Promotions / Broadcasts and how that affects your total list.
This is also one of the only Bots that allows you to do abandoned carts, and also one of the only ones that integrate with Klaviyo.
This is a great app. It allows you to do sooooo much! They have a few integrations but have added more just in the short time that I've had it. The help center and tutorials are actually better than a large majority of larger more well know enterprise apps or companies. It has a great UI and is easy to use. You don't have to know anything about bots or coding. Support is super responsive. I've already starting using it and its working great. This app will have you prepared for the wave of conversational commerce that is building.
This app is great concept. Set up can be confusing though. I will use out the trial period and see how it goes

Octane AI allows you to achieve professional results that are easily tailored to the needs of your brand. I looked at other bot building apps and they were just as good but nowhere near as easy to use! BONUS: the Octane AI support staff are brilliant.
