For the app Zipify OneClickUpsell (can't find anywhere else to review the app so I made it here)
I really like the app and it has helped my business grow a lot. But the errors and problems that the app has been exhausting. I contact their support at least 3 times a week with new issues and usually, they don't like to take the blame for anything and sends me to contact another app or service. They can also answer very different on the same matter even though I'm talking to the same person every time. Which is very strange. Doesn't feel like they enjoy helping at all.
You also can't see any details about your orders when they go trough zipify, like which platform they came from or if the customer had any issues ordering that you can see if they just go through Shopify.
Overall I like the idea and the app, but it needs a lot of work. Especially for the crazy cost I'm paying every month. Just doing this review to let other business owners know what they're getting in to.
Very easy to use, drag and drop. Great templates. As of writing, I was expecting more templates. Currently there are 22 templates and the templates aren't as current pages on the sites Zipify use to model. I would add another star if Zipify Pages would allow you to customize the Shopify Checkout.
Its easy to use and has good templates, but its is stupidly expensive.
No company should be sending 3-5 reminders to 'give us a 5 star review' within 2 weeks of usage. Thats a poor customer experience and means these ratings are heavily biased.

I love that this tool integrates with Shopify and you don't need a new DNS for it. I just wish you could move or delete elements from a block. I've requested a feature update. Hopefully they will make this needed update!
overall its a good app but there are better and cheaper options with more ease and flexibility when building pages. we've move to shogun for now and quite pleased.
See TL;DR at bottom:
I am a fan of Ezra and his Smartmarketer brand, so when he introduced it to us, I wanted to try it right away. I had never used a drag and drop WYSIWYG editor for Shopify, so when I first tried it, I thought it was amazing. It was sooooo much easier to use than the built-in Shopify editor.
One of the best features is that Ezra gives you the templates he uses for his own websites so you get to see first hand what a highly converting landing page looks like. I highly recommend getting at least 1 month membership just to see these.
Months later, I ran across a different editor by accident called Shogun. I decided to try it out and was blown away by how much easier it is to use. After using it, I understood two of the big disadvantages of Zipify:
Zipfiy's blocks are fixed.
Shogun's blocks are dynamic.
If you want to make a table with 3 columns with an image/text/image:
In Zipify, that would be a pre-defined block that Zipify would have to build for you. If they don't have that particular block, then you you're kind of out of luck.
In Shogun, you would just insert a 3 column table, then insert an image block, text block, and image block.
Basically, Shogun gives you the raw building blocks, allowing you to be EXTREMELY flexible in what you can build.
Zipify gives you pre-assembled blocks, which are inflexible for building.
In Zipify, you cannot insert blocks within blocks.
In Shogun, you CAN insert blocks within blocks.
Zipify had some essential blocks that Shogun didn't have, like the countdown timer and 'add to cart' buttons. But then I made a request to Shogun and they added these features right away.
TL;DR: My recommendation is to get a month of Zipify to see their amazing templates and get a sense of what a winning landing page's flow looks like. Then use Shogun to build it faster,easier and cheaper.
