This Support Policy describes how Flowio provides our support services to you during your subscription. If you have any questions or do not agree with any points, please do not hesitate to contact us via in-app live chat or email.
This Support Policy can be changed through time, so you should check this page from time to time for any possible changes that have been made. Any major changes will be announced via our Newsletter sent to your emails.
This Support Policy is effective globally from July 26th, 2021.
1. Support timeframe
We have diversified customers coming from all around the world, and though it’s hard to satisfy all customers in different time zones, we are trying our best to offer the most coverage that works for the majority.
Our working days are generally Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), from 9AM to 6PM (GMT+7), so please be aware of any time difference.
2. Support definition
Can be considered as problem customers have met while using our product(s):
Bugs that already existed in the products. Customers notice these bugs because the features do not work.
Bugs caused by external factors such as conflict with third party's extensions.
Bugs caused by customers’ customization work.
3. What is the scope of Support?
Our support mainly focuses on topics like installation and configuration of the apps, usage of apps features and potential bug fixes. Support will NOT be provided when you want to modify the app to suit your specific needs, or when you want to feature the ‘X’ app/platform to be integrated with the app.
We offer support for the following situation(s), regarding to the Support Items in section 1:
Any compatibility error arising from a fresh product install.
Help with functionality of our product(s) which is not specified in our documentation.
Functionality which does not work as advertised into the product’s description.
Existing bugs which are not fixed in the current version.
We do NOT provide support for the product features if we validate that you have uninstalled the apps. However, we will assist you with most payment inquiries.
4. What is the meaning of “out-of-scope”?
In-depth app customization, HTML/JS/PHP/CSS customization/template code changes, or any other custom work that takes beyond 1 – 2 minutes. Refer to section 5, Modification support, below:
Change the default workflow of the app.
Adding functionality which was not advertised, and is not installed by default with the product(s).
Compatibility with other Shopify apps or any other third party software.
The loss of data as a result of apps downgrading.
5. What is modification support?
If you are requesting modification help, which only requires us to publish 2 - 3 lines of code, we will be glad to assist you.
However, if your request requires custom queries, testing, or several lines of code to be published, it will be considered as out-of-scope, we can only provide very basic guidance, and you would then need to hire an external developer of your choice if you do not have skill(s) to implement it yourself.
6. Before asking questions
Please read the product(s) documentation and/or search important keywords from our Help Center before asking any question.
The existing documentation covers the most important steps required to install, configure product(s) as advertised. Most of the questions can be answered by simply re-reading the documentation.
7. How to get Support
If our existing documentation does not provide the answer to your question, please feel free to contact us via our live chat, or send us your question via firstname.lastname@example.org
We highly recommend you to describe your issues/bugs under structural contents of the Support form with a suitable subject . If you put your contents with tons of words in a non-structural way, our Support team might take longer to review and give their feedback.
We recommend you to provide us with some screenshots that describe your issue/bugs clearly.
We recommend you to keep your content short and precise in order to get the feedback quickly.
Generally, your case should be answered no later than the first hour in a normal working day. If you do not receive a response after this time, please do not hesitate to send a new request.
8. Definition of DONE
Each request is recommended to contain one or two issues maximum. This is to keep both Flowio and Customers focused on one main topic at a time and keep the conversation consistent.
When the Customers confirm that the case is fixed, our Support team will consider the case as solved and close the ticket.
Please do not keep raising any newly detected bug(s) and/or question(s) in the resolved ones. Instead, please send us a new ticket/question requesting support.
9. Bugs fix
The bug over a specific site needing individual technical support will be reached within 24 hours (including weekends). The technician will fix the bug right after we get sufficient information (if requested) and explanation of the site issue.
For any improvement suggestion(s), we do appreciate your idea(s), and they will be sent directly to our Business Development team for future consideration.
However, we could NOT guarantee any instant solution for unavailable feature(s). If a workaround is available, for sure we will let you know.
Flowio has the right to revoke your access to the support area in the event of abuse towards support staff and/or other users, including, but not limited to:
Use of profanity of any kind
Defamation of character
Spamming of any kind
Misuse of support tickets or threats for self promotion
Constantly re-posting identical messages in multiple tickets and/threads and/or emails.
