Pros

I've been super happy with it and their product only gets better and better as more third-party companies have smooth integrations.

Most satisfied software and the website ever,categories and edditing methods are perfect and easy as nothing,even for a person who dont know about website creating, im satisfied.

Kavinda B.

Good, I have recommended it to multiple friends. I think it could use some updating but overall it's a great startup for businesses.

Schanel W.

Pros

We came from Vend, this is just amazing. Auto updates status, stock, perfect integration and super quick to update both sides.

KG

Kyle G.

The support staff has been super friendly, responsive and helpful. Rather than giving us flippant answers with links to FAQs, they have actually provided constructive and personalized responses.

SB

Shanna B.

It works seamlessly with Woo Commerce, which has been nice too. The reporting tools are helpful and full of variety, and we are enjoying the custom report feature as well.

Cons

Was not very much support on the stubborn aps that refuse to leave when you delete them.

Anonymous Reviewer

Sometimes on the app I have trouble tracking my package either error from the sending company or from the something on my end in not understanding the app to it's fullest.

Heather W.

Bad practice, leaves a bad taste in the mouth. No other company does that.

LB

Lana B.

Cons

My experience with Hike has been horrible, the system has major flaws and the company as a whole is unprofessional.

AB

Adam B.

Reporting is lacking, syncing sales, customer details, etc is horrible, search functionality is cumbersome. Products, sales and customers are duplicated, and sometimes lost entirely.

AB

The app keeps hanging, we keep losing conncetion to printer and scanner. The currency keeps changing from the store currency.

Hike

Not only a waste of time but it did things to my data, inventory etc that is taken me back weeks to

Reviewed 2 years ago

Wish I would have never gone through with this. Has set me back over 300 hours. Thank god we did it during slow season while we have a chance to recover

Pros

I liked all the promises that it supposedly was going to fix versus me using Shopify with additional apps

Cons

I do not even know where to begin. - Created multiple items - Added and subtracted randomly from both Hike and Shopify - Discount Groups cannot be trusted. Even after spending 3 hours on chat with their lead tech. - Created refunds in Hike and Shopify which I cannot undo so all those sales must be re-keyed - reporting even the custom version gives you so little options you have to spend hours figuring out what it means Wish I would not have tried this software EVER

Hike

Not Reliable

Reviewed 3 years ago

It feels I wasted a lot of time trying to rely in the software.

Pros

The interface is good, the idea is great, it has everything a startup needs to make a sale, see its inventory and follow up on sales.

Cons

The reporting/ dashboards are not reliable, not able to make edits to a sale without refunding it. Shopify integration caused lots of issues. Inefficient customer support with lack in solutions.
