Planet Of The Vapes

Not only is the app lacking useful data and insights, it also generated incorrect commissions. Support is poor. Over and over, promises were made by the support team and delivery dates of reports we requested were made but not followed up on. Frustrating experience.

[update from 1 to 3 stars]: We were able to get on a call with Refersion and get some background information on some of the issues and how to work with/around those, which provided some relief. We may add another star at some point if the support quality improves.

[Update #2 - Back to 1 Star] - The adjustments we waited on for a month had errors and were useless. Now waiting on a second try that is going on another two weeks. A huge frustration is the lack of communication from Erik. He has made multiple promises per week, fulfilled none of them, ignored my questions about the delays, and ignored my request to escalate the issue. Positive reviews mention Emma, so I've appealed to her and will report back.

[Update #3 - Back to 3 Stars] - Emma was very helpful and communicates well. When our customers use a discount code on an item with a unique affiliate commission, the calculations get messed up and need to be manually adjusted. The bad news is this took a looong time to sort out, and refersion response was slow in the beginning. The good news is they found workarounds that didn't require us to alter how we prefer to do business. So far, they have done the manual adjustments for us. Not sure if that will continue, or if they push that to us long term, or choose to automate. For now, the workaround requires refersion to run a monthly report to flag possible problem conversions, and for us to manually identify which ones are correct before approving them. We expect no more than a handful of problem conversions, if any, during normal months, and dozens, possibly hundreds during our annual sales periods. If your business uses discount codes and multiple commission levels for products, be sure to communicate that with refersion and get a plan in place.

If you are in a business that does well for affiliate marketing than great. This app brought in no sales over 7 months. Also, they need to make it easier to cancel. I tried to cancel and went into their dashboard and there was no option. I had to reach out to them and Shopify to figure out if I deleted the app would it stop charging me. They need to make this clear to customers.

My experience was great up until the past month when I was contacted to update my credit card, stating that a charge wasn't going through. Puzzled since funds are available on my card, I responded inquiring about the amount they were wanting to charge - I have a protection that does not allow any charges to go through if I haven't pre-approved them.

After two attempts to get my response and two different people responding with simply "update your credit card number" (no response to my actual question), I received an automatic email stating that my account has now been cancelled due to unsuccessful attempts to charge my card.

I'm sad with a bad taste in my mouth with how this company went about evading my direct question of the amount they were attempting to charge and simply cancelling my account - it gives the impression they were attempting to charge more than I had agreed on.

I'd say the app itself works fine but the people behind it have raised many flags for me and I feel it a duty to share this experience.

UPDATE: After receiving a phone call from Shibo, it was explained that the cancellation was an automatic result from a final attempt to charge my card - it wasn't an intentional action.

In the end, Emma and Shibo explained that the charges they were attempting to put on my card were the same as my original payments which is all I wanted to confirm in the first place so I could dig deeper on my end. I've cancelled my subscription though I may return as a customer in the future. The app itself works fine for what I was using it for.

Easy to install and set up. Will update with more/less stars after I have used it for a few weeks.

Mayjay Test

Good software, although would like to see more social media support for our affiliates. www.creativeyearbook.co.uk

So far, so good! Shibo has been amazing at helping me get up and running. It's pretty self explanatory too.

I tried Leaddyno but it was a real headache.

So far I'm loving it!

I'm updating my review.

After using this program for a couple of years, I'm finding that the platform isn't intuitive anymore, there is only online support during "banking hours" and reports are not very robust.

While it's not horrible, it's not as easy to use as I would like, being a busy store owner. so I'm going to be looking for a new one.

Customer service is excellent and the concept is great. Our advice is to think very carefully before committing to any affiliates app because once your affiliates are all signed up then you don't want to stuff them around by changing to a different app.
We very quickly moved to having to pay $27 a month for our affiliate program with Refersion once we had a number signed up but we were not yet generating any income from the affiliates program. This is a big commitment for a new company so for us the jury is still out on this app.
