Elite Recovery Shop

Was looking for a cheap forum option. This one advertises $.99/month, but when I went to install it wants to charge $19 per month? Might not be bad, but I didn't even bother installing the free trial.
Edit, Thanks for quick response. Trying it out now!

Hey there, Elite Recovery Shop,
Sorry about that!
We wanted to test out different pricing points to see how customers would respond.
Based on your feedback, sounds like you were rather pay less, than pay more?! 😉
Price is back at 99 cents!
Happy weekend 🙏

Awesome app, none of the other Shopify Community Apps integrated directly with our theme, and existing Shopify Plugins. Social King allows us to add Social Media features to our sites while maintaining a unified brand experience for our shoppers. Thanks guy for the amazing service, they even tweaked the styling on both mobile and desktop pages specifically for our theme! Couldn't be happier with the service.

The purpose of this app was good but this app was very buggy and only allowed customization on mobile phone. This app was too difficult for my customers to sign up

Hi Frosty,

You're making some really good points here.
One thing you may have noticed about our app, is that we are trying to integrate directly with any given site's theme - meaning the Community Pages should have the exact same header and footer - out of the box - and all your existing plugins should also work directly on your Community Pages.

One of the challenges of that approach is that each site has totally different styling - both on desktop and mobile.
Hence, it may take an extra couple of days for our developers to review how the app looks on your specific theme, and then tweak anything that needs tweaking to make it fit your exact brand styling.

I understand your frustration - since you also took time to set the Header and Icon Images, and add Tags.

So, the ball's in your court.

If you'd like to re-install the app, and then just not link to it in your header, we can have our developer's customize the styling - at no extra cost - before launching the Network to your community.

Either way, thanks for your valuable feedback, and for giving it a shot.


Wow. This app blends all the best features of Social Media, SEO & Social Proof into one tightly-knit package.

We're super excited about our new Social Network, and our shoppers are feeling very comfortable expressing themselves on the platform.

We also specifically like how the app encourages long-form content (which is much better for SEO), and the sitemap is available right out of the box even on the starter plan.

We've been searching for a long time for an app that will blend our Social Media and Content Strategy into one, and this app does a great job of enabling our Shoppers to share their thoughts on our product and brand.

The Content Moderation features are also crucial, in our opinion, because we need to be able to control any post, comment, images, or videos uploaded to the site.

Thanks for a great app, and we look forward to seeing the upcoming features.
