I uninstalled after 1 day and still dealing with trying to get my store back to how it was. I was very excited to get this installed & integrate with Zipify OCU. But, that quickly turned into a terrible customer service experience. Customer support offers No telephone support - a must for ecommerce business owners - long drawn out email threads just don't work. Customer support was vague and could not answer specific technical questions about the installation of their app by itself or the Zipify OCU integration. 1 phone call with a knowledgeable Recharge engineer would have answered my questions and gotten me up & running.

Got fed up with lack of support
They reached out to me trying to get me to change my review but do nothing to address the lack of support the customers are getting.
We've removed this app from all our stores
Over 20 hours and still no reply from support.
This happens too often with this company.
We've decided to remove the Recharge App from all our stores

Pretty terrible customer service.... They don't respond to emails when they do they just send you a link and then don't respond again for another couple of days

UPDATE: Rob from customer support was kind enough to help with my issue immediately after writing the initial review. The issue took a few days but they helped to resolve it. Now, the same issue is happening for other customers and we are having people cancel because basic functionality in the app is not working. For instance, a customer changed their frequency and it still shipped out a product AFTER the customer verified as well as our Internal Activity Logs show they changed their frequency prior to the product shipping out. These issues are basic functionalities of the app AND THEY AREN'T WORKING. This costs us our reputation and customers. It needs to get addressed and addressed now PLEASE.
The support with ReCharge is terrible. If you are trying to set up anything relatively custom, they always send stock, copy-paste responses and don't actually read your email and answer the question. It almost feels like a computer just auto generates a response. We are missing some customers in ReCharge that are subscription customers and that's just unacceptable. Right now we have to manually check to see if people are actually in ReCharge and that shouldn't be what we need to do.
Support is slow and makes it impossible to hit any real world deadlines. 8 hours for every reply from them and each of their responses starts with "Apologies for the delay" but in reality they cripple a business for 2 full business days
Worst customer service support and such a confusing app to use. Looking for another solution. I cannot see my rulesets and customer service takes two days to get back and every message you send back to them will need two days to respond. Absolute joke of an app. I lost so many customers as the recharge app was telling my customers i had no stock.
With the pricing they charge, I'm not sure what they spend their development time on...
You send them a file with fields mapped, but you are responsible for everything. What I mean by this is they do not report any errors or potential errors back, its on you to export what they imported in and check it against what you sent them.
The other issue is that we migrated from another platform that allowed customers to have more than 1 card vaulted. ReCharge would only allow us to use a customer ID and pulled the "Default" card on the customer record. We had to go through 3000+ customer records manually to make sure the card on file for their subscription was set to their "Default" card. A better solution would have been for ReCharge to allow the unique token id that referenced the customer and the exact card they were using.
Another issue we had was with the frequency, but some of that I'll take the blame for. We switched from offering every Month or every other Month as shipping frequency options. We setup 30 Days or 60 Days. Instead of being able to map those during import, ReCharge imported as is. While this did not affect orders from processing correctly, it did cause an issue when customers try to edit that frequency. Since they didn't write their code to handle both frequency (30, 60, 90 etc) and interval (days, months, etc) my customers are presented with the option of 30 or 60 MONTHS, yes MONTHS when they try to change their frequency. I've since been able to fix by exporting all our subscriptions, editing the frequency and interval manually and having them re-import.
ISSUES WITH DISCOUNTS:
For whatever reason ReCharge has discounts, but they didn't set it up to handle the basic logic that Shopify does. So you can't setup discounts like:
1) Fixed $ amount or % off an order
2) discounts off specific products/variants
3) BUY X GET Y
It only lets you set % and $ off ALL PRODUCTS in your cart, as specific product (yes, a SINGLE product...apparently they forgot what multiselect is), or a specific collection. While some people might not mind creating a collection for every single discount they setup in ReCharge, a collection still does not get you the option to exclude/include specific variants.
ISSUES WITH TAXES:
While ReCharge does seem to read products to see if they are taxable, they didn't think it important enough to read the customer record to see if they are tax exempt or not. So we currently have hundreds of customers screaming at us that we are charging them sales tax even though they are tax exempt. ReCharge's suggestion: "A lot of our customers just give the customer a discount." Yes, because I'm sure the IRS will take the excuse: "Oh yes, I know our accounting software is showing we collected all that money in taxes, but it really wasn't taxes, we gave a discount. You see?" What could possibly go wrong?
This is great app but the charge is too much $59 a month is too much.I dont think i would want to spend that. Bold works better for me

Integration is manual by them and it takes ages with no answer. don't be fooled by nice graphics they show to you. it is waste of time and effort
