Their customer service is horrible. They approved a claim, but are dragging their feet when it comes to payment. Ongoing for 3 weeks now. Update: It took a while, but they finally assigned an account rep who helped with the refund as promised. Hopefully I won't have another issue but it I do, she has said I can contact her directly.
Thanks so much for your honest and valuable feedback! During peak holiday season it can take a bit longer than normal to process reimbursements, but with some of our new automation technology those processing times are steadily decreasing. I looked into your most recent claim, and it appears you were refunded in full - including the PayPal transfer fee - for the order on Jan. 7th.
In the future, if you have any questions regarding issues or reimbursements, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or your CSM directly, and we’ll get you taken care of ASAP.
Thanks again for your feedback and for choosing Route. We’re so lucky to have you on board!
Hope you had a safe holiday season,
Jordan, Customer Support

This app has been great to provide both merchant and consumer peace of mind when ordering. Our Route rep, Brad, is responsive, helpful, and great to work directly with. My only complaint is that our store dashboard where I can look orders up is so slow. I also wish there was something on our dashboard where we could see our bill by month, instead of just receiving weekly billing notifications.
Route is a very well built app that integrates well with our Shopify store. Route's team was very helpful in working through any bugs during implementation. We have a lot of customers checking out with it so it seems to be providing quite a bit of value for our customers.
There have been more customers buy this than I expected. Seems like customers (and us) see a lot of value in the insurance since it is so cheap to get. Excited to keep using this for our business!
Rep Your Water
When we first got this app right before the holiday rush, it was PERFECT! Every claim was handled super quick and easily. The pandemic and direct shipping problems with that definitely slowed them down, though I suspect also fast growth because of increased online sales was part of the problem.
We sell mostly lower dollar items, so haven't had a problem getting them replaced or refunded.
I think that there is room for this to be 5 stars again in the future as they catch up and hire more people so that the communication can be better. Overall we have had a great experience, but the slow down in response time has been tricky to navigate.
The Mini Princess
The only thing lacking from this app is communication to the seller when someone field a claim. For instance, they’ll tell the customer a replacement is being made when the seller has no idea this has even happened. For me, can’t remake certain orders due to limited supplies so this causes a problem. However, when you email route about it, they switch it to a refund so it’s a simple fix.
Overall a very helpful app and the customer service is great for help installing.
This app came in very handy when dealing with missing packages! Prior, we were constantly back and forth with the post office and the Route claims process made it very simple to come to a resolution. Super seamless platform.
We have been using Route for a few months now and have found it very useful. Almost no hassle on our end, and solves some headaches when packages go missing/are broken. In most cases the claims are approved without ever needing any action from our end other than referring the customer to the claims link.
Lace The Game
Update: Changing our review from two stars to four. Route reached out with an apology and assured us that they have hired more customer service reps to help process the high number of claims they are receiving due to the pandemic. The errors from our previous claims have been corrected and new claims have been processed in a timely manner. It seems they have addressed their issues and are back to functioning normally.
Before Covid this insurance was a dream come true for us, they took care of customer claims quickly and efficiently, saving us both time and lost revenue. However, since Covid customer claims are being processed incorrectly resulting in us having to cover the losses ourselves. We are disabling the app for now and hope Route is able to fix their issues and get back to running smoothly again!
