Omnisend Email Marketing & SMS , 5.233 recensies
I think most of these reviews are fake... what is the point in accumulating subscribers if you can't reach out to them in a timely fashion. The last time we sent out a campaign it was a year ago.. even then we got "Paused". We needed that email to go out at a particular time of day, and now that is not going to happen. Their customer service is worse, "we will get back to you in a few hours", this is early morning business hours. I advice find some other solution. After the email was finally sent out I got a "Warning" letter stating that too many got flagged as spam and our campaigns might get paused... according to their own report 12 out of 11273 reported spam, that is 1 in 833 recipients !!
Hello there and thanks for rating our app!
We're sorry you've found yourself in this circumstance. Please note, however, that a long pause in sending to your list is one of the triggers for a campaign verification. The reason for this is that over extended time periods, such as a year, a contact list may accumulate a substantial number of invalid emails, as your clients' inboxes may get filled or inactive. The condition stated may result in a rise in campaign bounce rates. These bounces dramatically harm your sender reputation, resulting in varied degrees of deliverability issues. For the purpose of protecting your sender reputation, the campaign verification enables us to examine a subset of your mailing list to establish how many bad emails are present in it.
To avoid triggering the campaign verification, we recommend sending a campaign at least once every two to three weeks.
Also, our support team takes pride in their response time; according to the log of your last chat with us, our support agent responded to you 6 minutes after you filed your query.
We will use your feedback to enhance both the product and the customer support team.
Have a wonderful day!
Seems they have a lot of "good reviews", most likely all of those are fake.
Installation and setting everything up is seemingly easy, but at least in our Abandoned Cart flow, we encountered lots of bugs. Issues with Omnisend:
- Emails go out at random times and the delay set between the emails is completely useless. For example an email that was supposed to go out 15 minutes after the abandoned cart, arrived in the inbox 8 hours later.
- At times the emails did not arrive at all, not even in the spam folder. This was not a setting issue.
- Worst part was that the final test we did with a completely new email, duplicate amount of emails were sent. Of course hours later once again, and then again 9 hours later.
- The discount code they generate does not seem to be automatically applied in the checkout. ...Did not investigate this further as the app proved to be useless, we are not even going to bother with support, they too did not reply as the recommended time frame.
All of this set us back 2 days. Would not recommend using.
Hello there; thank you for leaving a review; it is highly appreciated. We are sorry for the issues you faced.
As we can see, our Support Team was trying to help you investigate the case, but you haven't responded.
We will provide some info here as well, but please note that in order to investigate this case, we would need some examples of such cases (with their emails):
- There are few reasons for the issue with delay, it could be related to a contact who comes and updates their cart a few times, or it could be an editing workflow case;
- This issue would be better to investigate with our team and we would appreciate if you could provide an example of such case;
- Most likely related to frequency settings in the workflow and can be easily fixed by enabling this option;
- Shopify generates discount codes, Omnisend only sync them and adds to the email, in order to automatically add a discount code to the checkout page, you need to enable this option in discount settings when customizing your email.
Again, we are sorry for the issues you have faced, and we would be more than glad to assist you in our in-app chat or by email. You can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org; our support is available 24/7.

Hello there! Thank you for sharing your feedback about Omnisend. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and apologize for any encounters that may have caused inconvenience.
We take customer satisfaction seriously and we're sorry to hear that you've experienced issues with generating clicks from your audience. We understand that the click rate may not meet your expectations, and we would like to provide insights on improving this aspect. One factor that might be impacting your click rate is sending campaigns to your entire audience, which includes a significant number of inactive subscribers. We recommend targeting your engaged customer base to improve metrics and increase engagement, leading to higher revenue. Furthermore, we offer different plans to accommodate varying needs and audience sizes, allowing you to adjust your pricing with just a few clicks. Please let us know if this is of interest to you.
Regarding customer segments and billing, we apologize if there was any confusion. Once you create a segment, it remains in your account, representing a portion of your audience that matches the selected filters. However, as your list grows, the billing tier will be adjusted accordingly.
Regarding the issue with Google Analytics not displaying your traffic, it's important to note that Google Analytics primarily tracks website traffic, whereas Omnisend focuses on email marketing and automation. The tracking mechanisms employed by Google Analytics and Omnisend are different, which can result in discrepancies.
We genuinely value your feedback as it helps us improve our services. If you require further assistance or have any specific concerns, our customer support team is available 24/7 and can be reached via in-app chat or email at email@example.com.
Have a great day!
I am not very happy, very bad first impression of Omnisend. Downloaded app 5 days ago. Process was pretty easy in the beginning to set up but then I hit a wall by not being able to verify my domain. It's been 5 days yet nobody has helped me solve this problem, my business has been unable to send out marketing campaigns and it's been 12 hours since I last spoke with someone in customer service who basically ignored me. Terrible way to start things and it's hurting my business.

UPDATE: CONTINUES TO GLITCH.
This has beautiful templates and is a more affordable option than alternatives, but unfortunately the glitches mean you end up paying for it. It frequently stalls out and although the team gets back with a response, it does mean that you are delayed sending out emails by hours or days which is precious time for a small business owner.
I've been really disappointed. I switched because it seemed like a great option for my small business, but the bugs they've had this week meant that I couldn't announce my shop's grand opening, I couldn't send out my two year anniversary celebration email, and I'm waiting to send out emails to customers for our soft launch! The workaround they gave me hasn't worked either. When it worked, it was great, but it's crazy to have these issues several days in a row when we rely so heavily on email marketing.
Thank you for updating your review and sharing your continued experience with our app! We appreciate your feedback and understand the frustrations caused by the ongoing glitches. We apologize for any inconvenience you have faced and want to assure you that we are actively working to resolve these issues.
Ensuring a reliable email marketing solution for your small business is paramount to us, so our development team is actively investigating the glitches to identify the root cause and improve the app usage for you.

Unfortunately, after you disabled the function of viewing anonymous store visitors, your application becomes completely useless for me. Alas. There was a very convenient function.
Unfortunately, you will have to delete it in order not to load the store with an unnecessary application ...
Also, when creating a mailing list, there is no possibility to make adjustments to the list of addresses, settings (even there is a letter supposed to be late, delayed sending). After today's negative change in functionality - not the right application! I don't advise anyone!
Hey there! Many thanks for your review!
We hear you and rest assured: the decision to sunset the anonymous user data is just an intermediary step to introduce a more meaningful way to track your store visits and provide suggestions on how you can use Omnisend to your advantage. Stay tuned for more updates in this field!
Please note that there is a possibility to choose the segments when sending out a campaign; there also are options for scheduling your emails: you can do it based on your time zone or the time zone of your customer. You can find these settings once you finish designing your email.
If you have any questions or need any assistance, do not hesitate to contact our Support Team, we are available 24/7 and can be reached via In-app chat or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day!
A horrible customer service experience. Worked on an Email template for over 2 hours and after activating the same, the template got reset (twice). Contacted the customer service who kept me waiting for half hour only to get a reply that it will take them 48 hours to check on the issue if this can be fixed. What is worst is that they assign staff based on the tier of the customer you are which is quite bias already. If this review doesn’t get updated, most likely I switched to Klavio.
Hello there, and thank you for taking the time to submit a review! We sincerely apologize for the negative experience you had. We understand how frustrating it can be to encounter such an issue, especially after investing significant time in creating your email template.
After investigating the matter, we found a problem that caused your template to reset and did the needful to restore your email template. Rest assured - we aim to provide efficient support to all our users, regardless of their plan, and we strive to prioritize and resolve inquiries as promptly as possible.
We want to clarify that the 24-48 hours timeframe is the maximum ETA from our Technical Support team, and we generally aim to resolve queries much faster. In your case, we are glad that we could restore your template within 3 hours from the moment the conversation was escalated.
Regarding your concern about customer tier-based support, we do prioritize our Pro plan users, as it's advertised on our pricing page. However, we want to assure you that all our customers are important to us, and we work diligently to offer quality support to everyone.
Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we will take it into consideration to improve our services further. We understand that your trust in us may have been shaken, but we hope you will give us another chance to serve you better in the future. If you have any more questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us directly.
First they have very limited templates. And then I raised first case related to one of the templates and they've failed to resolve it. Instead working on it their tech team advised me to use jpeg and other supported formats. While there was no issue with the format as I used jpeg only.
Had given them real campaign code to check - not sure why they asked for it if they had to give generic advice.
They again asked me to wait for tech team's revert.
They actually don't look at the problem and intend to solve, but rather give generic advices.
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review for us. We are really sorry for the issues you are facing. Our team is working on the bug you reported, as soon as it is fixed we will update you here and though our support team. Sorry again for the troubles and thank you for you patience and collaboration.
Used this app for years and then one day my pop ups, email captures and everything else just disappeared from my site!! In fact, the app had no record of my customer data. Wrote for support but haven't received an answer or my data back! I guess maybe they did an update and forgot about their current customers! If this can get my data back and it is working again, I'd certainly appreciate it. But it's no longer a 4.8 rated app. Any app that just stops working on you and then can't even show you as an existing client, let alone get your working data back you created...isn't worth a rating.
Hello there, thank you for sharing your feedback with us, we appreciate it. We are really sorry for the issues you are facing, we checked your account and can see that your account, unfortunately was deleted due to inactivity (it was inactive for 6+ months).
We completely understand your frustration, and our support team would be more than glad to assist you with re-creating content you had. You can reach our support team by emailing email@example.com or use in-app chat.
Thank you again for your feedback and sorry for the troubles.
I take great pride in firing this BS company because they do not care about their customers enough to offer telephone support for basic account setup issues such as Custom Domain Setup. Instead, they push you off on your DNS provider, which is sleazy. Shame on you, Omnisend! Shopify is no better. Their chat agents need to be better trained in such matters.
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review; it is highly appreciated.
We are sorry you have faced some difficulties with the Domain sign option. As we can see, you already had your custom domain signed with another app you used previously, and this app also used the same provider as Omnisend; hence this domain was already present in the system. It is impossible to add domain to your Omnisend account since it currently exists on a different account within Mailgun system. Therefore additional verification was needed.
The issue was resolved, and you added the domain to your account.
Sorry again for any troubles you have faced and thank you for your feedback.
