The question is Shoptimized or Shopify booster?, I'm just seeking people experiences with either of them and see if the theme is actuallya s good as they put it.
Of course I am aware of the products to be sold etc, just checking as I do like Shoptimized but there isnt many reviews about it.
I've just purchased Shoptimized, and am not happy with it. I need a basic Shoptify feature, which is to represent various colllections as images on the home page. As I said, basic Shopify. It turns out that Shoptimized won't do it, and they want at least $50-$100 to modify the code. Unacceptable for a theme that is advertised as above and beyond the Shopify themes. Who know what else it won't do.
Furthermore, their website is poorly designed, took me in circles when I tried to buy the theme, and ultimately double billed me. Tech support is minimally responsive, and the chat folks are unknowledgable and generally not helpful. Documentation is virtually non-existant.
This company expends it's efforts in hyping it's products, can't even design it's own website, and doesn't care about it's customers after the purchase. Approach with caution.
Hi Michael, I'm using the Shoptimized theme and I'm really happy with it, they are actually adding the feature that you are looking for in thier 4.2 update. I asked support to implement it for me and they added in the code free of charge.
I would suggest doing the same. Support was fine for me, so I guess it may be a bit hit and miss, but if you post into the closed facebook group there are always people on hand to help.
I would go for Booster Theme over Shoptimised Theme as it is known among the industry leaders as the best converting shopify theme. I have got 15% exclusive discount code if you are looking to make a purchase. Check out the link and let me know if it was useful. https://medium.com/@reviewsnguides/booster-theme-coupon-57fb759bc0f0
If you want a fast loading theme and very easy to customize, could you take a bit of time to check my new theme: Shopcast? OR you can also check Woodstock, It's also very fast. Lots of special features will help you save the costs for Shopify apps.
