First of, the app is a great app, the service that the app provides is awesome. However, you have to pay 300＄/ month if you want to customize the theme. If you want to change colors, that is easy in their CSS builder. But it stops there... When reading out there live chat is really lousy with slow answers, answers that clearly states that the one on the other side of the chat haven't read what you just wrote. And this persons tip for me was to reach out to one of there partners... Costs from 1000＄... Also, translation is a beast. Manually translation over 100 sentences.
worst APP to navigate. Everything is manual. The set up process migrating from other sub app was promised to be simple but actually HORRIBLE. RUN!!! Now if you decide to make any changes their bulk process does not work or the staff is just not capable. Get ready to spend hours figuring their back end out. No thanks to Joel or Nigel who will write lengthy emails but not actually help. Will be moving all my companies off this platform now.
Would not recommend 1/5 I decided on Recharge based on good reviews, UI and their other reputable clients. However, after using this app for about 3 months to manage my monthly candle subscriptions, a number of my customer subscriptions received charge errors and I was not notified about the errors and neither were my customers. After a month it was brought to my attention that my customers had not received their orders and had not been charged for the previous month. I contacted the app to help me troubleshoot this issue, in which I was told the error was unknown and I would have to manually charge the orders, which I did and the previous month's orders went through. However, the app wasn't able to provide a solution for the current month's charges and informed me that my customers would skip the current month's subscription. On top of that, the following month the same errors occurred again. I can't put my business' reputation on the line for this app's poor development and functions. I would not recommend.
Warning, installing this app will immediately inject code snippets into your theme that will display content on the front end. Even after removing the snippets, we encountered a compatibility with paypal express checkout that generated a liquid error: internal and took a while to find and solve. Proceed with caution.
The app is NOT made for stores outside of the US. Main issues (1) It lacks A LOT of localization (translation into other languages) as it is very US centered. Even though they have a Translations tab there are many fields that are not translatable not even if you hire a dev. Only option is to pay $300 and become Pro. Support team does not take notes of changes needed either, so it´s a dead end.
(2) Support team knowledge is very shallow they basically replicate what´s already written in the wikis or tell you the issue is with your theme or shopify. I am facing an issue with an email notification that shows incorrect information even though the code is correct, and no response from their senior support team in weeks. It took me 4 emails to convince them that it wasn't working (shouldn't it be the opposite?, that is, they help me instead of doubt me?)
This is a very bad app. They advertise that it's fully integrated but its just not. Do you yourself a favor and google ReCharge for Shopify Everything It Claims To Be? for you start. It will give you a more honest review. I wish I read this before we signed up
HORRIBLE SUPPORT!! Non exsistent support, they could care less here. I am not the only one from these reviews. Customers cannot even manage their own subscriptions! I am not very satisfied with this app. We used to use Bold subscriptions and have migrated over to recharge about 6 months ago and have had nothing but problems, so many issues with our customers changing addresses on the backend and then it doesn't change for us when we ship, also I have had a number of subs charged without shipping costs, the list goes on and on for errors.
To get any help from Recharge is very difficult, they have no live chat and it just goes to an email ticket, every response I have ever got from them has never helped solve our problems. Our subscription revenue has decreased a lot since using recharge, This has cost a lot of loss here
Do not use this app **ONE YEAR LATER AND STILL ISSUES, MORE THAN BEFORE. CUSTOMERS ALWAYS UPDATING ADDRESSES NEVER WORKS, THINGS GET SENT TO THE WRONG PLACE, ITS GLITCH AFTER GLITCH ON THIS APP. THEIR LIVE CHAT OFFERS NO HELP ONLY "CONTEXT FOR SUPPORT" TAKES DAYS TO HEAR BACK FROM ANYONE. BY THAT TIME ITS FAR TOO LATE. I REGRET EVER MIGRATING OVER TO THIS SERVICE. IT IS INCREDIBLY UNRELIABLE
Extremely unhelpful support. We have payment issues because of API expiration on ReCharge's end during BFCM. Sounds urgent? Haven't heard from them until now, and supports keep out of office. It's simply reconnecting the API, but it seems they are not really concerned about this systems instability and merchant loss from it.
I do not recommend this app because of the poor service. I have been trying for two weeks to solve the problem of wanting to use the app and I got tired of waiting. Very bad support service. They just don't care about their customers.
