I have a tech person who manages my site and we had an issue and my subscription link wasn't working. However, my tech person was out on a family issue and after me trying to fix myself I opened a chat and within an hour the issue was fixed!! Sergey was amazing!!! I had just launched some ads for my subscription so if this wasn't working would have been a disaster. So Thank You to Sergey for your quick response. I appreciate you!!!

I originally started with another subscription app and I couldn't get the support I needed and in a timely manner. I reached out to Paywhirl and I was eventually pared up with Lincoln, my support person. I can honestly say I have not had customer service this good in a long time! Paywhirl has a seamless scheduling process, and I was able to verbally speak with him during installation all the way through some challenges. Lincoln stepped up and had the small issues fixed within 2 hours. I was amazed!! I had some unique ways I wanted my subscription products to look on the site and Lincoln assisted with an idea, and we ran with it. I love it ! I'm looking forward to my launch and I highly recommend Paywhirl if you need support like I did. 5 stars all the way! Thank you, Lincoln, and thank you Paywhirl for making it possible to speak with a support person!

Working with Lincoln was a joy, Super good service and very high quality integration.

I would say having a paywhirl website and a shopify integration being separate apps is slightly confusing, But one you get yourself setup, pay whirl is a breeze to use.

Terrible experience that negatively impacted our cash flow.

First I'll address their response:

1. I signed up for a paid plan, which they say is supposed to come with better support so if it's even worse than this, my lord they need a lot of work.

2. They said their app won't work with Shopify but clearly their reps don't know this because no one told me that or we wouldn't be here, just more terrible service.

Original review:

I had to get a support rep to help set up the Shopify store since the directions on the site for set up are outdated (as per the rep), but I assumed it was set up correctly.

Unfortunately with each payment (of a four payment plan), it places a new order and charges us for the on-demand product cost. Now I have to cancel all orders, refund everyone and figure out how I'm going to get these customers back.

And of course, support takes way too long to respond, already a few hours in with no resolution to the second issue in two weeks. They told me to refund on Shopify, I do so and it says "request declined." What they didn't tell me was (I'm assuming) that I needed to cancel the subscription first so I did it in reverse and hope it works. Not sure until I see us the biz refunded for multiple orders.

If the website direction is wrong and two reps don't know what they're doing (and support takes way too long), how can you trust this app?

We're truly sorry for the difficulties you've faced with our app, and we value your feedback.

We want to clarify that our Shopify app doesn't officially support layaway-style payment plans, which we're making clearer in our documentation. We also acknowledge the misunderstandings with payment refunds and order processes. We're working on improving communication to avoid this in the future.

We're improving our support response times, and on our paid plans, we offer priority support for more prompt assistance.

Could we arrange a call with our support team to discuss your concerns and find a suitable solution? You can schedule it by contacting us at https://calendly.com/paywhirl-team. We're eager to understand your situation better and regain your trust.

Thanks for your understanding, and we hope to make things right.

Great Team to work with even with a difficult migration. I've worked with other subscription services like Bold and Recharge and this system seems to be the most straight forward and easy to work with. Its the best subscription integration to shopify I've seen.

I am a complete novice working with a subscription app and we have had a few things that we have needed tweaking since we started four months ago. But, I have to say, their customer service is top notch. I always get a response pretty quickly. Overall, we've been really happy with the app. My only request at this point is for the app or Shopify to restrict bundling items with subscription items.

I had a problem with my variants not showing up on my product page. I had been struggling for two weeks trying to get help to fix the problem. With only 2 days left before launch day Sergey found the issue and fixed it! I really appreciate those at PayWhirl and the setup was easy. The app is really easy to maneuver as well!

This app can cost your company time and money. Are experienced web development team installed the app as instructed by the videos. And nothing works! So we deleted the app and contacted customer service and never heard back. We have documented everything.

I installed PayWhirl to kickoff my subscription program. Installation was simple and Ryan was super helpful in ensuring that the app was up and running. He was very responsive. Only drawback is that not all of the features I need are available yet, but they're releasing new features incrementally. I appreciate that the app is free until its fully launched. I'm a-okay using it in beta and will keep any eye out for their app updates. Definitely worth giving them a whirl!
