Merchants appreciate this app for its user-friendly interface, variety of features, and affordable pricing. They particularly value the templates and automation capabilities, which often boost conversions. The customer support is praised for its responsiveness and helpfulness. Recent updates have enhanced its functionality, but some merchants have reported issues with email deliverability and pricing based on subscriber count. The SMS marketing feature is well-received, but its availability varies by region.
They offered a free plan with 500 e-mails per month. That's what we needed. Then, they started charging me more and more every month based on the number of subscribers, regardless if they are active or not. When I complained about it, they told me to remove the subscribers even though we were not shooting any e-mails to them. That's shady.
Even though we were paying, we couldn't remove their logo from the e-mails. They're always forcing you to upgrade and once you're in, the next plan goes from $50 to $80! The plans you get on Shopify are gone!
UPDATE: This response is just BS. Your policy is not clear. You offered me a plan with 60k email per month and it doesn't show anything about the number of subscribers. I should be charged by the number of emails sent, not by the number of subscribers in my list. I had to pay for all subscribers even tho we shoot less than 100 emails.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We apologize for any frustration caused by our pricing structure. Our pricing policy is based on the number of billable contacts you have, and this may result in changes to the monthly cost as the list size changes. We strive to be transparent about this in our communications and on our website.
In regards to your concern about inactive subscribers, we understand that it may seem unfair to be charged for them. However, we do need to account for them in our pricing structure as they are still part of your overall list size. This is the reason we do offer the option to remove those contacts to bring down the price. We believe this is a fair way to comply with our pricing policy and provide flexibility to our clients.
Regarding the removal of the Omnisend logo: as we have checked your account, we found it possible to remove it from your emails. We would be happy to assist you with this if you still have any issues!
We do offer different plans to suit the varying needs of our clients, and we understand that it may not be feasible for everyone to upgrade to a higher-priced plan. We will take your feedback into consideration as we continue to refine our pricing structure and offerings.
Thank you for choosing Omnisend as your email marketing platform. We appreciate your business and will continue to work hard to provide you with a top-notch service!
We recently discovered when chatting to a customer that they didn't receive our latest SMS. Upon further checking, they didn't receive the last 9 SMS either, neither did most of our US customers. There was no notification of this within Omnisend, I had to check the customer record to see the SMS has failed. I guess it's in Omnisend's interest to keep the fees and not alert customers when their SMSs aren't delivered.
Checking in with customer service, so far the only explanation I've been given is that we haven't verified our number. This is despite a) 9 of the 10 failed messages were before the date verification was required, b) we have never hit the limit set by number verification.
Currently I keep getting the same answer from customer service whose only line seems to be to ask us to verify our number. I will keep pressing.
Further investigation has revealed most emails end up in the spam folder too. What are we paying for here? At this rate I'll be asking for a full refund!
Hello there and thanks for taking the time to leave a review!
Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. We understand that failed SMS deliveries can be frustrating and impact your marketing efforts. With this in mind, our team has investigated the issue thoroughly, and we have found that the only reason for your SMS not being delivered is indeed due to regulator limits in the US, as you mentioned in your review.
We do our best to comply with all relevant regulations to ensure the highest deliverability rates possible for our customers. Therefore, we recommend verifying your phone number as soon as possible to avoid any future issues with SMS delivery.
Our support representative has reached out to provide more information on the matter as well as to rectify the issue with email deliverability.
We take all feedback seriously and will continue to work hard to improve our services and provide the best possible experience for our customers. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team.
Thank you for choosing Omnisend as your marketing automation platform.
I Paused my store and relaunched under an entirely different brand. The app no longer tracks all visitor activity, just selective activity of returning/ known customers. In that sense, its not helpful in antialiasing product potential or begin able to dispute if an information page(return and shipment policies)was viewed. Uninstalling and will continue to look for an app that that tracks all activity on the site
Hello there, and thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience!
We're sorry to hear that using our app left you unhappy.
Therefore, We'd like to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. However, I'd like to inform you that the reason for this behavior is to track visitor activity that is relevant to the customer's purchasing journey. Our new tracking and logging architecture is here to help us achieve this goal. It enables us to extract a lot more data from the browsing session and integrate it into a lot more services within our app.
Please keep in mind that we track user behavior on all store pages except those that require sensitive data input.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions! You can reach us at email@example.com.
Instale la app y pude crear el formulario bien sin problemas, pero para personalizar el diseño del correo es un total desastre, modifico la frase de encabezado, o algún otro texto voy a guardar y siempre me salía un error que no especifican que es, te dan un link para buscar el error y solucionar, pero habla de todo menos del error, hable con atención y genial muy atentos, y te atienden rápidamente, pero igual no supieron solucionar o indicarme como arreglarlo.
Hello and welcome! Thank you for providing feedback!
The text formatting issue is something that you may encounter on occasion while styling your text. The error appears in the vast majority of cases after you paste the already formatted text into the field. The issue is resolved by clicking the "Review issue" button, then selecting the text from the field to which the prompt directed you, and then clicking the "clear formatting" button on our tools panel. The problem will be solved once you have completed all of these steps!
We are already looking for ways to improve the situation, and we appreciate you posting about it!

I was initially happy when I first signed up for Omnisend but I think I was happy because I was completely new to email marketing. I've been with Omnisend for 2 years now and each time I use them I'm honestly so underwhelmed with their offerings. Also, receiving customer service is almost impossible. Their customer service reply is only via chat which prompts to "we typically respond in 1 hour", I'm sorry but we are business people and when we have a small window to work on something that's our window, and waiting an hour to 1 reply is not practical. I recently switched to Attentive Mobile for SMS and it's been breath of fresh air! I'm looking for a new platform for emails now. If you're debating Omnisend I would suggest passing to save yourself time and unnecessary headache!

Very quick response on initial set up question. - I have been using this for a few months now and am seriously disappointed! Far too many emails are ending up in spam filters, these are regular customers I deal with pretty much monthly so it seems odd. Omnisends answer... it is yahoo & hotmail filters - but we are in Canada and 99% of them are gmail and the regular emails get through so - that answer doesn't wash.
Hello there and hank you for taking the time to provide your feedback!
We have reviewed your recent conversations and located the one in which you were addressing deliverability concerns caused by a high bounce rate, but not spam. In fact, our Deliverability Team has found that the vast majority of them are indeed inactive Yahoo inboxes.
We've discovered that 100 of the 108 bounced contacts are Yahoo inboxes. These contacts have been saved as a segment in your Audience.
Overall, we've determined that your Audience comprises about 10 percent of Yahoo inboxes.

Have a wonderful day!
Very frustrated with customer support since day 0, and I'm now working with you for 3 months. But always when having a Bug your support blame that I'm wrong and make me fell like a newbie, then I lost days trying to follow their hundred instructions that always end by discovering that indeed were a Bug.
Look you need to segment tech-savvy from non savvy clients. Otherwise you gonna piss your clients every day. I'm deep frustrated for the third time in 3 months.
Hello and thank you for your review!
We're sorry you've found yourself in this situation. Our support representative has contacted you with additional information and guidance on the issue!
Fine app, poor support. Dont wanna help setup their app, so we actually can get the benifits. They refer to some Youtube etc. not a good customer experience. Reply to your reply 11 - May **He didnt help me set things up - I got a lot of links to guides etc. which is fine, but in a smaller business, you dont have time reading all these guides, so I still dont get the effect i wished I would get from Omnisend (But email marketing works, so I give 2 stars instead of my 1 star)
Hi, we're really sorry to hear about your experience. We can see that a Senior Support Agent was able to help set things up for you. Please get in touch if we can help support you with anything else. Thank you!
The app is great but it becomes very costly. I'm at $90 USD per month and I can't believe that this costs more than my actual Shopify subscription.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to review our app. Omnisend pricing is based on the number of contacts you have, so cleaning your list regularly and removing any inactive contacts will help. Our support team would be more than happy to assist with that and anything else you need.
