Ratings and Reviews
Following up where Lanananahdba left off
This user of your Your website builder - I’ll bet you Could have had a loyal brand ambassador, “flying the flag of” your company and your app if only his simple needs were met.
I am in search of the best, simplest, website builder - Who is not Shopify, a powerful business who loves to shut down my completely innocent websites (plural) without first understanding the business they are shutting down. Sadly, I painfully know this First-hand from a handful of these experiences. Most upsetting and confusing to customers think think they know, or really already do though, exactly where to go to shop my stores. But then they don’t find them suddenly when they try to go there. Fairy happily upgrade my review stars if with this app I end up being able to develop my stores and integrate them with my Shopify account and the other platforms on which I sell. And making no mistake about it… In this digital age where personalization in the human contact element are almost gone if I find that I can call this business and reach a human who is willing to speak with me and walk me through anything I need with their website development I will be a devoted customer.
So I am seeking a “third-party development platform for e-commerce Business with these requirements. No shutting down my website without a personal conversation with me to discuss concerns you may have and replies I can offer, a company with whom I can speak one-on-one with another human being, not a chat bot or a discussion forum with people who may very well know less than I, or without being sent links to articles to read, or mountains of instructions to learn from when the best way I learn is by doing and by guided instruction. So giving me 15 minutes at any given time or perhaps 20 as just a basic service of those with whom I have chosen to do business - that is, for our growing number of website businesses that currently stands at 7, while we have a serious goal of launching and operating 11. Please, help me and we’ll both prosper for sure!
My website got deactivated??
Okay so I honestly love this app, it basically creates a website for you that is SUPER easy to edit on your phone and send to people. I made a makeup portfolio on it and still had to do some editing, so I wasn’t using the app for a couple weeks (as I was getting more photos for my portfolio to add later). So recently I click on the app expecting to see my photos, but instead it says my website is deactivated?!! Did I just lose all of my artwork I put so neatly in order on it? Does this app just deactivate websites if they don’t use it for like 2-3 weeks? Please answer my questions. I want to love this app!!!
Developer Response ,
Hi there, glad to hear you love our app! All Format sites come with a 2 week free trial, after that, a subscription is necessary to continue using the app. That said your artwork is still there and available if you want to activate. If you need help with this feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly from the chat bubble in both the web and iOS versions of the app. Thanks again!
Does not work on new M1 11” iPad Pro
Oddly, I can’t use this app at all. Upon launch, I’m only presented with a sliver of the UI with nothing to click or interact with.
Hopefully an update soon
