    I cancelled Frooition for my eBay Store. They extorted $400 from me to un-geek my pages.

    What were the positives?

    None. It was a failed and costly experience.

    Any negatives?

    PLENTY!

    1. They promised easier and faster to list using Frooition. No way! Very slow.
    2. They promised higher store traffic on eBay. No discernible difference to me.
    3. Their system was built by techies for techies. Not user-friendly for me!
    4. Expected some store design with my subscription. I did most of the work.
    5. Their store design duplicates what any buyer sees before they get to the Frooition content. Nice looking but redundant.
    6. When I cancelled my subscription after almost one year, I asked them to remove their template. They did for all the graphics, but left a bunch of techie mumbo-jumbo embedded in my pages. I asked them to remove it and they said since I'm no longer a subscriber IT WOULD COST ME $400. After one month trying unsuccessfully to bulk edit using eBay's process, I gave up and paid the $400 ransom. They fixed the issue in ten minutes, maybe less! I feel like I've been robbed at gunpoint!!

    Overall

    Awful experience.

    features do not work no help but they collect their fee

    I have had footion for several years. It has been Ok unitl recently they changed the way you do bulk editing. I cannot add my template to my new listings and no answer from support. So in summery I pay monthly for my template and for bulk editor, but I cannot use them since their software has changed it has been a nightmare trying to just get template applied to a new listing.
    if you are looking to bulk edit and looking for something to make your life easier I would keep going this is not it.
    If I ever get a bit of time (probably not since spending so much time fussing with this bad bulk listing) I need to look around for something else.
    Frooition is costy and there is little support so you pay but cannot use what you have paid for.

    Graduale from EZ eBay Listing to Impossible listing tools

    What were the positives?

    The storefront and listing design is nice but seems costly

    Any negatives?

    Oh, Yeah! I am a new Frooition user. I was not able to see actual listing tools but received lot's of "how easy it is" promises. Paid $1100 and for this payment I got the most convoluted app I've ever met. Everything takes many steps and often gets terrible results. I think it is beyond the capability of non-IT users. I have been trying since 2/4/18 to grasp Frooition's horribly difficult listing elements.

    To complete a single listings can require up to 6 separate, often repetitive, steps to create a listing and list it a task that can take hours for the simplest listing

    I like their storefront and listing template but am very sorry I invested in a program too difficult to master.

    To be Fair, they have a department called Rescue and Rescue is very good, very determined to help but this is such a messy system very often they just do the work for you. Nothing is easy in Frooition

    The worst thing I ever did

    What were the positives?

    NO, it really did not work, I sent almost 3 days trying to get it to work, this was time when I could be listing more items, it was time wasted.

    Any negatives?

    Yes, it could have worked.

    Overall

    The support was pathetic and to make it worse now ALL my listings have HTTPS issues and all have to be taken down and relisted, we have over 400 listing to change, due to the change on Google Chrome.
    I urge any eBay seller NOT to touch this with a barge pole, it is the single worst software package I have ever come across.

    So far, very pleased

    I’m currently dealing with them at the moment for my future design, our designated web designer has been brilliant to date and kept us fully informed at each step, so no complaints here.
    Price is always important, but as we know, you get what you paid for so I'm very confident, so far very pleased with how the preview is coming along! I will update this further once our design is complete and installed!

    Product was awful!

    Looked into using Frooition in August and after being constantly hounded by their sales department I finally caved. They charged me $1350 to do the eBay store template. The project was supposed to be finished on 9/23 but, It wasn't even close. Finally, a few weeks later I got the final jpeg file and it was awful. The design was poor to say the least I was happier keeping my little eBay store as is and basic then put this *** on my site. Let alone the functionality horror stories that I heard through here. The last straw came when I scrolled down to the bottom of the page and Frooition used copyrighted logos in my storefront. These images I cannot used as they are copyrighted by large companies and I could end up with a big, fat lawsuit. After, stating that I wanted a refund I was given to someone else who was originally supposed to do my design and he was to work on it. He didn't do much better. 2 months later, I am requesting a refund and don't hear anything from them until I contact my credit card company. They offered a partial refund of $650 but, that's crazy considering they didnt do anything. Save your money and go elsewhere because, with Frooition you're pretty much flushing good money down the toilet.

    Good Design - Poor Customer Service / Software

    I have been with frooition for a while now, but within the first 2 weeks i was about to rip my hair out copying / pasting photobucket links into the boxes and the slow step by step system (might make it easy but it sure didnt speed things up) so i ended up making a visual basic program to edit the html and add the photos / description of my items and keep the frooition layout. - totally cancelling out having to use the frooition website and lists items straight on ebay - (its super fast compared to their method) then i made loads of various macros e.g. one that would automatically select postage prices and link it up with either fedex or royal mail depending on the price... heres a link to a video i took of my program in action... quite handy indeed

    Appalling Service, Communications and Product. Watch for high ongoing charges

    I would not recommend using Frootion at all. In my experience with them I've found their communications to be terrible.

    The number of times I have had to contact them on a Premium rate number due to a fault on their behalf, is unacceptable. I emailed queries and requests in relation to the store/template that they were designing for me but I had no replies and my requests were never addressed. Not a personal service at all.

    Also, if you are considering using Frooition for an ebay store, make sure you fully understand the charges involved in hosting your images with them, and continuing the use of the store/template that they have designed for you. Yes, you'd think that once you'd paid for the store/template that'd be it...well that's not the case...there is a monthly charge for the privilege of using it, and a monthly charge for image hosting (which is not cheap nor competative). In my case, this would have totalled just short of £400 per year for just one store.

    Instead, I've decided to cut my loses with Frooition and go elsewhere to start over again, as I have 3 other stores/templates that I want creating and I would like to keep them all on the same system/platform.

    Overall = Very Dissapointing and would certainly not recommend.

    Awful service, bugs in software, £199 per hour for support!!!

    Here's our experience:

    The Frooition designer assigned to us was happy to make as many changes as we wanted - but his communication with us about the progress of the work / any issues, was non existent. The amount of time we had to spend chasing him up (all on premium rate 0870 number - he didn't bother answering emails within less than 3 or 4 days) well outweighed the discount that we negotiated before work started.

    Frooition promised they could code the listing template to work with Spoonfeeder, the uploader software (similar to Turbo Lister) that we use. But, they didn't - Spoonfeeder saved the day (they made changes to Frooition's template for us, for free - thanks, Terry!).

    Once we got underway and listing we started getting the odd complaint from buyers that our listings (and shopfront) were taking a long time to load. At first we thought that this was simply down to 'more design' but we've since learned that each time a buyer clicks on a listing, the Frooition design on our listing has to be 'drawn in' from Frooition's servers. This weekend just gone, the Frooition servers were down for hours on end - we lost hundreds of pounds in missed sales and much poorer that normal auction returns.

    In January, Frooition launched the advertising for their 'exciting New Shop Experience' promising additional and enhanced features and an improved buyer experience. What they actually delivered turned out to be inferior to the original product and full of bugs. Here's the list of issues that still exist with Frooition's NSE product. By the way, they also called it an upgrade and charged us £100 for the privelige:

    Ill-looking, poorly functioning Promotion Boxes - half of the item title is missing and the boxes often fail to display at all

    Missing Shop Pages Links in both Storefront and Listings

    Poor quality of FrooFlow box

    Failure to integrate eBay generated slideshows (which was always the case before NSE, and I've been told should still be achievable)

    Incorrect reordering of categories in pre-Freedom generated listings (which the Frooition support team have told me is irreversible)

    Poor quality work when embedding header into eBay standard pages

    Freedom generated listings do not show correctly in eBay's new version of the listing page

    They told me that they are keen to make improvements and 'the sooner the better' - but they could not commit to any timescales.

    I gathered from their comments that they didn't have, or wouldn't fund, the additional resource required to carry out the remedial work. Either way, it came across as low priority - after all they've got our money now.

    We believe that Frooition's promotional material for their NSE 'upgrade' was misleading and omitted key information and the product they have delivered is materially inferior to the original product and, in several respects, unfit for purpose.

    When we've opened up help tickets about these issues we've received 'cut & paste' irrelevant and innaccurate answers. When we've pursued the issues, Frooition support team have simply deleted the help tickets! Now, if we want to report any issues, they tell us that the ticket might not be answered at all - or that we can pay £199 for someone to deal with it as a priority

    You won't be surprised to hear that we're planning to move away from Frooition. For a while we did try to convince ourselves that things would settle down after the implementation of NSE and then gradually improve. We've had the Frooition designs in place for less than 10 months, so we're not exactly keen to just write-off the money we spent. But, if anything, things are heading in a much worse direction, at a very fast rate.

    Unfortunatly I have to add to the doom and gloom...

    Everything started out okay with Frooition, then it seems once you have paid and they have given you the design they think you should have they turn into a beast.

    Wasted over £3000 with Frooition and now just get nasty short remarks. Their ChannelAdvisor store design is very very poor.

    Now they are asking for £50 to upgrade the eBay shop or we will loose our design.

    They charge a monthly subscription of £18 which seems to be a design rent which they can turn off at any moment.

    Do not use frooition unless you enjoy headaches

    I just read the previous review about this company and I have had very similar problems, the sales people promise the earth but the actual designers don't delivery, it took 6 months before ny site went live (I was told it would take weeks) and then it was still full of bugs, they ignore complaints and nobody ever calls you back. It is a real shame as their own website looks really nice but they just don't like their customers. I am so fed up with them that even though I have paid a lot of money for my website I will not be using it as I dont want to list lots of items and then have to continue to pay yearly fees to a company I cannot work with, better to cut my losses now and find a more proffesional web designer who actually listens to what I want, and can work to deadlines.

    Definitely Not Worth The Hassle!

    As a client of Frooition I've had a chance to experience their service firsthand. The following review is my personal opinion.

    They've got a design template that is unique but they are a nightmare to deal with. The entire company seems like a revolving door-you'll be quoted by a salesperson who will then disappear off the face of the planet. Then you'll have to deal with 10 different people who will tell you different things and then contradict each other until you go insane.

    HIGHLIGHTS:

    - Told the work would start in a week and then didn’t hear back for two months.

    - Charged the wrong amount to our credit card.

    - Tried twice to add false additional charges despite previous agreement with the salesperson. When we sent in documentation of the correspondence, they ignored it.

    - Agreed to build a website but then told in the middle that the service was no longer available.

    - Promised unlimited design changes but most of the time they literally stop working or responding. Their code is so delicate-it breaks with every minor change. If you fix for IE7, it breaks for Firefox, if you fix again, it will break somewhere else.

    -After 12 months still getting emails from elusive "Creative Director" who has no clue writing asking for money for work that is incomplete or never done in the first place.

    No one at this company speaks to each other. You could call them and one person will promise something and the next person will deny it. It is an unholy nightmare to deal with, especially over long distance. These guys are stubborn Brits- so don't expect American-style golden customer service here. They say they'll fix everything to your satisfaction, but when push comes to shove, they simply disappear. US-based clients should avoid the Frooition black hole at all costs.

    Feel free to contact me at gmxauctions@gmail.com before you consider hiring this company.
