Route: Post‑Purchase Platform , 382 reviews
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!
Thanks so much for your glowing review!

We just signed up to use Route as a retailer to better serve our customers. The process was seamless, and every team member we worked with to get started was outstanding. They clearly explained and communicated everything, and ultimately we felt they would add value to our brand through great customer service. We haven't had to file a claim yet, but we can give a 5 star review on the experience so far!

Very easy to set up and operate, they handle customer service for claims (unless you'd prefer to do it in-house), and they handle replacement ordering. The insurance is flowthrough, so cost-neutral to merchants and covers full value of order for loss, damage, or theft. Would definitely recommend for porch pirate-y US market.
Started off great, app was working well. Then our checkout started crashing on mobile, this continued to happen and our abandoned cart rate skyrocketed. Even after we deleted the code and the app, the route text stayed on our checkout, we have lost thousands of $ in sales due to this app. They have said they will fix the issue but never do, then they asked us to reinstall the app, and it started affecting the checkout again, such a joke, no compensation just excuses.
Great idea, but the execution is not smooth enough. Having a separate email to the client is clunky, needs to be integrated into the Shipping Confirmation Email within Shopify. We still field all the emails/questions from clients regarding their shipment. No benefit gained with this product installed.
I've also reached out to support and not heard anything back for over 48 hours. That response time is ridiculous for a company in this space as I can only assume our customers will also experience delays when they engage Route.
The process getting setup was not great.
The pricing was off from what we were charged. The first clams were denied. The claim process was not easy at all for us. Customers complained a lot about there setup.
Overall experience was horrible and I would love my money back!!
If you care about your customers' experience like we do, you would stay away from this service. They are great in sales but they don't offer any technical support or customer service. Many customers have been adding the insurance to their purchase which was ok, however claims which have been made by our customers have been left unanswered (almost a week now) with no sign of them getting answered. Only following up with the sales rep made them ask us for which claims are open. Thanks but not thanks.
Route's interface is super easy to navigate, user-friendly, and adding your branded content is effortless. Route thought of everything when it comes to clearly communicating with your customers. Reporting and resolving issues is seamless and has added another layer of customer support for our service team.
Thanks for this raving review. We are thrilled to hear you have had a great experience using Route. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and are happy to hear we are hitting your standard.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to our team at: https://routeapphelp.zendesk.com/hc/en-us and we'd be happy to help!

Heard about Route through another company that we have partnered with in the past and so happy that I took their advice to talk to Route! The people at Route are fantastic to work with, the on-boarding is wicked fast and based on the orders that are coming through our customers are happy to have shipping insurance as an option when placing an order. Very excited about Route and the value that it adds to our site/customer trust. Would highly recommend adding it to your store!!!
This app is great, and a no brainer for any retailer. Any opportunity to offer the customer more protection on their order for no cost to the merchant is great. Amazing support staff and simple integration completed by Route
