Great platform and amazing performance. It's so easy to use and the results have been through the roof! We use it with a bunch of other retargeting, marketing and email apps and it really helps us get new users through the door.

Highly recommended and fantastic customer service. We had a few questions about ad-creative and David's team help us refine the ads to make them more effective.

Well, I just logged in to see if my ads were approved (I signed up 3 days ago)…….and they are running. No email to let me know, no communication. Nothing.

Then I click on Reports and see the campaign has started:

Campaign Name Start Date End Date Impressions Cost Clicks
TC Straps May 6, 2016 May 15, 2016 19304 $24.01 10

That is all the information I can find. No information, no website names, No statistics…Zero information. No daily report of CPM or clicks.

Looks like they ding your credit card but you have no idea why. Unfortunately, this was one of the Shopify suggested apps on Thursday when they rolled out the new 2 step "Go to App Store" with the default page being new apps.

Be careful out there.....I have been using Google Adwords and AdRoll for ages with results and information to help Quantify...but with POLN.....I think I know what I got.

Edit May 13: Just received a credit card statement today and POLN had charged $100 as the first payment and it only ran, if it actually did, for 24 hours. I would give them less than 1 star if I could. STAY AWAY from this app.

Ok... let me start off by saying the customer service is TOP Notch! So helpful and informative! For those who are saying that it doesn't work and that they take your money ahead of time, do not understand what this is all about. Poln is to be used in combination with other retargeting apps. That is how you can see success with this app. I love how it provides so much detail when choosing your audience and that you can select multiple things. I am so excited about Poln and know that it will prove to be a success for HipKnoTies! Thanks so much for setting it up! :-)
PS: Aanarav was such a huge help and I can't thank you enough!

Worst experience: they get the money in advance, and you get almost no traffic (my site, no traffic at all). When you ask them in the support page, you get no answer. I'd like to get my money back but I don't get any answer from them... I do not (strongly) recommend it.

Complete rip-off. Like the previous commenter, I too found slow/poor support and a total lack of reporting as to where or what Poln was doing for the money.

My ads were initially paused due to the banners being rejected, but somehow I continued to receive clicks? I knew right then I was getting ripped off.

I'm an avid user of Google analytics and this was a complete waste of money from what I could tell, certainly no sales and a pathetic CTR. Stay Away!

If you are going to try and bring in some more traffic to your site with display advertising, there is really no downside in running a campaign with Poln. There is not commitment, there is no minimum spend, and you can make the campaigns as long or short as you wish. After spending some time with Google Adwords and Display ads and not being too thrilled with the traffic, this was a great alternative.

The only cons I have is that I wish there were a few more analytics at my disposal and I could not make changes on the fly to current campaigns. This looks like it will not be an issue in the future as the team says they are working on it.

Poln has really been amazing to work with. I love the option of...having so many options. You set your budget with no long term commitments. Impressive, thank you! David and his team are reliable, professional and responsive. I appreciate the follow-up we receive as well as guidance from David based on our current and future direction.
