Not even worth 1 star. Support gives me the runaround! They keep emailing me saying they can't bill me and to go to the dashboard and select a billing method. THERE IS NO WAY TO SELECT A BILLING METHOD ON THE DASHBOARD. This has been ongoing for weeks! Now I can't even offer the service because they can't figure out how to bill me. Ridiculous! If you figure out how I can pay, I will delete this review and use the service, otherwise I'm deleting the app and the review stays! Stop giving me the runaround!

Beyond frustrated with this app. First, it has been causing checkout issues for my customers from day one. If they selected Route, their entire cart would empty! When I contacted support I got the run around for months with them claiming it must be something else on my website. Eventually Shopify Theme Support was able to pinpoint the problem code and prove it was Route's coding that had been causing the issue. Even though I was able to provide the exact coding issue and tell Route support exactly how to replicate the issue, it still took weeks for them to resolve it. Then there's the whole reimbursement thing. Route issued a refund to one of my customers in November, and I have yet to receive the reimbursement for it! Once again, getting the run around from billing saying they paid it, without being able to provide one shred of proof that they have (transaction number, date, amount, etc.) All they can show is they were supposed to reimburse me, which I agree with. However my bank account shows they never did. Been trying to resolve this issue with billing for far too long! Their support is not helpful and I'm tired of getting the runaround. At the end of the day, your customers are still going to come to you if there's a shipping issue, so may as well handle it on your own and save yourself the extra headache.

Really great concept, super friendly staff call and very personable. I spoke to a executive success manager, after installing and was quite literally impressed, I wish I had thought of this idea. I do plan on working on implementing it on my store as I do offer returns and often stolen packages are a process that I do not want to handle, they don't charge you anything, they are very transparent and always have your interests in mind, I mean any question I asked, was answered promptly during my call, and I felt that after discussing the pros and cons, and reading positive and negative, it seems like they were just starting, just had a rush of black friday orders, and some application downloaders didn't really care? I mean, don't forget how much a 1 star effects your store guys, so at least look at the idea, see if they do help, from what I experienced, as a shipping solution, this provides your customers tracking, peace of mind (social proof in a way) , very modern look, the team will integrate it for you and to your theme's design and well... I think it's a great shopify app for those looking for an application for shipping policies and avoiding fake shipping reports, scams, and even real claims! 1 Less thing you need to do and 1 more thing they need to do for you, and they are happy to do it! So, give them a DL!
