All Shopify App Store reviews for Cowkid Clothing Company that haven't been deleted
Oct. 20, 2022
Do not install this app unless you want a ton of unhappy customers. This app worked great for a few months until it started sending out tons of back in stock alerts for products that were still out of stock! It's done this with over 20 products in the last 3 weeks. I finally deleted it. There were no returns for these items and the inventory had not been altered at all. NOT HAPPY
Thank you for taking the time to review our app. We understand it’s frustrating when your customer receives a back-in-stock alert for a product that was not restocked and they were unhappy about it. With that said, At Swym we always own a merchant problem and provide a timely solution and it’s painful to know that we haven’t been able to deliver that value to you. Our app is designed to collect subscriptions for Sold-out products and trigger the alerts only when we receive a product update from Shopify for these subscriptions. This is generally true of all the back-in-stock apps in the Shopify AppStore. We completed a thorough investigation of the issue you reported to see why those emails were triggered. For the period from October 19-21, a total of 20 alerts were sent by the app across 6 different products. Our app triggers alert based on 2 events: 1. A shopper signs up for an alert on an out-of-stock product 2. We receive an update from Shopify that tells us a product is in-stock. Only when these 2 events occur in combination can an alert get triggered. In every single one of the cases where alerts were sent for your store, we’ve verified that both these events happened. However, the issue seems to be that the first event, i.e. a shopper signing up for a back-in-stock alert was able to do so even when the product was actually in stock according to Shopify - indicating that the product-detail page was showing the product as Sold Out for that particular variant. This can occasionally happen depending on your theme settings but because the app had been uninstalled, we were not able to validate this. It is only with the data we are piecing together from our logs that we were able to conclude that. We have shared our findings and logs on the support request you opened, please check and let us know if you’d like more information. Even if you choose not to reinstall our app, we’d like to help you get to the bottom of this issue and help resolve it for you because it will likely cause other related issues for you.
