Privy is a great app!! Super easy to configure and use as an extra promotional window for us during busy seasons. We have done a couple in-store specials that's required the email form to be filled out; and I have also used it just as a pop up to notify our customers of important messages (e.g. Weather Delays in Deliveries)

I've tried a lot of popup / email signup tools and I really like this one. I manage about 5 shopify stores and have have really liked the response we've gotten where privy was deployed.

What I like / What it does better than other apps:
-- super easy and intuitive to create settings. Plenty of potential without seeming overbearing
-- the option for a 'thank you' pop up when someone signs up. If you offer a discount to people for signing up, this is great instant gratification. I'd been relying on mailchimp automations previously, which are great, but not instant. We'd get emails from people wondering where their code was.
-- option to NOT have a popup and instead have a bar / corner placement, etc. People are getting more and more tired of popups, so having the option like that is incredible.
-- you need the premium options to really unlock the potential of this app. It is expensive, BUT has the ability to add multiple stores / domains onto one account. So if you manage multiple, it ends up being cheaper.
-- support has been excellent.

What could be improved:
-- The actual formatting of text is limited. For example, you can't 'underline' things... which is crazy. They don't use a standard text format tool, rather, depend on markup that you have to code in.
-- The font selection is VERY limited. (but what they do have is decent at least)
-- The app, while smooth and responsive, utilizes javascript that might clash with existing code in your theme. Especially if you have a custom or premium theme. Support has been great fixing it for us though.
-- You can't change the font styles of certain areas (button text for example), I hope you like Arial.

I have used the app so far and it has worked. My only wish would be if I could remove their logo off of it when people sign up.I don't like that people can see it and it looks unprofessional on my end.

works as expected.
wish i could customize the PRIVY logo at the bottom (you know, how you can with mailchimp).

Otherwise has been working well.

Our website is www.thecanvasworks.ie and we make beautiful canvas and framed prints of your mobile and camera photos.

We installed Privy after trying various other sign up apps such as Lifter Apps and Sumo Me. I have to say - I've been impressed by the UI and the customer service - all very slick.

The functionality on the free version is okay but I found the dashboard a little confusing. You can edit your campaign by clicking Edit on the top right but then you are prompted to edit your Website widget just below it. They seem like the same thing to me? Must be missing something.

Maybe they just need to fine tune the onboarding using Intecom?

All in all, I would recommend this App - it's nicely designed and I think it will be a solid addition to our site.

I would recommend the Privy. It is a great way to grow your contact list. It's a necessary app for new e-commerce sites.

Stared using Privy and I'm already seeing result in a week's time. Nothing spectacular but its definately an achievement in its own right.

1) Like it that I can customise the newsletter signup form despite being on a free plan (for now). Awesome!
2) The auto-generated code links for various social media platform is helpful. Just copy n paste. Easy. I'm also beginning to see some results from Instagram.
3) Ben is helpful and responsive. Great solution n customer service. Thumbs up!!

Would love to see more templates!!

Keep up the great work, Team Privy.
