Personalized Recommendations , 196 reviews
After a lot of research of the different apps available and communicating with the very helpful support staff, I confidently installed this app and upgraded to the $69 a month plan with a few goals in mind. They assured me that with they could help us implement rule based recommendations using our product tags. I was very impressed with their team and promises. At first. It's now almost a year later and I can't say that we've had a single month where the app has worked properly. The custom css is installed and they say it's working, but the product recommendations aren't showing at all, and when they do show, they aren't showing even remotely similar products. The 1:1 product recommendations for upsell aren't even working anymore...the ones that I tirelessly created and imported so we could sell matching bands with each ring. I have no idea what's going on. The problems have been bad enough that they bumped us down to a free plan "while they get the issues fixed", but what has really happened is our store has been written off and they don't care to get the recommendations fixed. I would love to get the recommendations right so we can get back to a regular paying plan again. The last support ticket I wrote was in December. It's 9 weeks later and I've had zero response. Zero update. Zero fix. If you're looking for a basic recommendation app that randomly chooses products to recommend, this could be the app for you. If you have the time to manually create 1:1 recommendations because you have a small product set, this could be the app for you. Those are simple features that you could get for free using many of the available themes and the native recommendations feature that come with them, but if you wanted to pay extra you could get this app instead. I'll give 2 stars because the people who work there are truly nice people. Unfortunately I can't recommend to pay for the app just because the people are nice. It's obvious at this time that they can no longer keep the initial promises to create the Rule Based Recommendations that come in the Pro Plan and do not care to continue communicating with me about what's going on.
I love the app! The recommendations are great! The support is competent and fast. I am more than happy. EDIT: Unfortunately I have to change my rating. When I updated my template, I needed help from support. Support often doesn't answer. There are seldom replies. That's a shame for an app that costs nearly $100 a month. I think I will look for an alternative.
