NORM IS A WONDERFUL DEVELOPER, AND HIS ONGOING SUPPORT HAS MADE MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE EMPIRE THEME AND SHOPIFY SUPPORT REALLY GREAT. THANK YOU NORM!

Honestly a great theme to build a large catalog off of, but my favorite is the customer and IT support. I had a minor issue and the support team stepped up and fixed it without me having to do a thing!

VERY BAD COSTUMER SERVICES I HAD A TROUBLE NEVER RESOLVE AND I HAD TO BUY ANOTHER THEME NOT RECOMMENDED

Hey Zinker Team. We're so sorry to hear that you're having trouble while setting up! I can see that our support team is currently working with you on both of your support requests from yesterday. Please let us know in those support threads if you've run into any other issues and we'll do our best to help resolve that for you! Best regards, Pixel Union Theme Support

TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE - What benefit is a good theme if you can't speak to anyone? They are terrible and if I could get a refund I would. I will NEVER use Pixel Union again. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS WHAT MAKES OR BREAKS A COMPANY. Try scaling your customer support team before taking more money from our pockets, leading to a poor customer experience! POORLY MANAGED COMPANY!

Reply from Pixel Union Oct 30, 2020

Hi Nuvolt Solar team. We're so sorry about the initial wait on a solution to your support requests. I can see now that one of your requests has been solved, and the other is in progress with one of our agents. Please let us know in either conversation if there are still unresolved issues that we can help you with!
