Pros: Not being very tech savvy, I have found the simplicity of using this software fantastic. The product offers some great features and the functionality is easy to follow. I have found my whole experience with Rocketspark to be very high quality, from the software package itself and what it presents to the fantastic customer support of the team. There are regular updates to the software which means you have the ability to continually upgrade your site. The analytical part of the software is also very helpful and easy to follow to keep you updated with how your site is performing etc. What you get is great value for money.

Overall: The simplicity of use is the main benefit for me.

Straightforward to use and customer service was excellent.

Pros: It's basic and easy to navigate. The templates are good and I like the design. I like the team and have had many questions answered quickly and helpful.

Cons: I'd like more functions such as: drop down, use of multiple sites without 2 log ins, and with my private site, when a client signs up to create an account then they get an automatic email saying it's been approved.

Rocketspark has proved incredible easy to use.Any questions or problems have been answered promptly.

Pros: Easy to follow templates, instructions, and readily available help made it easy to set up the website ourselves without needing to employ a designer or developer. Also the SEO information was really good too. We already knew a lot of this, but had worked long and hard to learn it, so it is great to see it provided.

We like that Rocket Spark is a local company, are so available and prompt in replying to us when we contact them, and are constantly looking to develop and fine tune their software.

Cons: The software covers all the basics for an online shop, but lacks some of the features offered by some other providers of online shopping sites. We have contacted Rocket Spark about a couple of these issues and potential additions to our website and have been assured they will be considering them for future development.

Online sales data is collected and provided, but can inaccurate as sales figures are calculated based on orders being placed, not payment being received. This also means that if an order is refunded the figure cannot be removed for the total either. There is no method to keep track of sales figures for unpaid direct credit orders, or refunded orders, as the unpaid orders and abandoned baskets category does not capture these.

There is also no ability to up-sell just prior or at check out.

Overall: We had our old website for 10 years, and it was no longer capable of doing many of the things we wanted to be able to do, to keep up with developments in online retail, and the direction we were wanting to head. In particular at the time of moving, our old website was not a secure site and could not be optimised for mobiles.... Both of these Rocket Spark offered.... and they were recommended and they were local :)

So easy to create such a high quality website

Pros: So many templates to chose from as so easy to update and make changes even for someone with no experience in creating a website

Overall: I created an online store which I have since sold but it grew to be a national brand in less than 12 months and Rocketspark helped me to do that.

Everything is so easy. I don't have to worry about wordpress or plug ins.

Pros: I can change the website design with one click of a button for headings, colours or theme. The Rocketspark team are always on hand if I have an issue with anything.

Cons: I really don't have anything negative to say about this software. I think just making it easy to turn off the little red lights that flag what you haven't done which is annoying if you have organised your own email system.

I am thrilled working with Rocketspark to finally have a website, the process has been smooth

Pros: Love how easy it is to build and edit your own website! This box shouldn't be 100 characters minimum too hard to think of any more to say, ha ha!

Cons: Wish I could edit photos a bit more, sizing images or fitting them in the frame is a bit quirky at times.

Overall: Simplicity!

Impressive results and easy to use, advice is given quickly and proactively. Brilliant!!

Pros: For the beginner, this software is intuitive to navigate and use . I really appreciate that I can get useful advice and support promptly as well as well-written instructions. I love that I don't have to code anything and can get a sense of what my website will look like as I build it. The guide book on setting up an online store was really helpful too. The page building is simple and I like the 'blocks' that allow me to alter and add information and images easily.

Cons: Nothing really. It seems to be working well for me. The only minor thing is that the need for pre-decided postage costs meant I had to have 'catalogue only' . It's not a big deal though and has not been a problem.

Overall: I have been able to get more people to see my work which is great!!

Pros: The build features are easy to use once you get to know them. The customer service is really good as well.

Cons: The limit of 400 items for a store unless you pay more. Small businesses such as myself have many smaller items but cant justify the higher cost of the website when starting out. Also there are some limitations to build characteristics such as being able to create an upload form for people to upload artwork for a print business such as mine.

Pros: I love that I can edit my own website at any time, without having to ring a company to make the changes for me. Great when we want to add new photos or deals on our website. I like that the website was quite simple to set up even through we had never done it before. Rocketspark are always helpful when I have enquiries and have friendly staff to talk to if I ever have any questions. Also it's very easy to contact them via the online messaging system.

Cons: We would love the option of drop down menus as we have lots of sub-categories that we would like to have a page dedicated to.

Overall: Ability to create and edit a website without having IT skills or previous experience.

Rocketspark has been so good - I've recommended it to heaps of people!

Pros: The flexibility and ease of use. The designs look great and the ability to customise pages is very useful. Also the links with social media are very important these days.

Cons: There's really not much I can think of. It's minor to the point of not being an issue for me, but although I believe page optimisation (speed) is built in, if you perform page checks through Google analytics it suggests further optimisation. I've never bothered following this up as it doesn't seem to be a problem!!!

Overall: The ability to showcase our business to the world.

Pros: It is very easy to use and can easily be kept up-to-date. I find the software intuitive and there are no special coding skills required for what I would like to do with it. I like the drag and drop approach and the fact that you can view the final layout before publishing. It is good to have Google Analytics embedded as well as the other social media links such as Twitter and Facebook. I have found the support system very helpful and responsive. The mobile version works very well and enables me to show people the site when I am mobile.

Overall: It is easy to manage, doesn't take up much of my time and it produces great results.

Vendor Response

by Rocketspark on July 19, 2017

Hi Stacey, Thanks for your review. We really appreciate it. Regarding font control on a page by page basis, this is possible using our stack-specific design functionality. The font of all headings and text can be edited on a stack by stack basis, meaning even more design control than just on a page by page basis. Here's our help guide for setting that up here: https://support.rocketspark.com/hc/en-us/articles/115010439868-Stack-Specific-Styling . This can also be done with feature area text by changing the feature area font selection to be specific to that page only. Please let us know if we can help with what you're needing to do regarding fonts.

Pros: Images are taken care of. Easy to manage. Good platform.Kept upto date. Good links with social media and trending ideas. Great value for money. NZ based.It was a perfect way to start a new website with their trial process.I was even fortunate enough to extend the trial until I was sure I was ready. Great expertise team to guide and help you with anything to do with this particular software.Easy to manage and use. Good selection of templates and you have the ability to change any part of the website admin at any time. Good checkout process which links to direct payment system. Great to have the editing and preview available.Links with SEO (and Google). Available search function which I did not have in my previous website. Ability to manage and design banners,slides ,pages,

Cons: Perhaps an easier/clearer comments section on the checkout process as customers don't see it and email me their preferences/messages for cards etc. Currently I get them to place any extra information in the shipping information box near checkout.This is mentioned on my website but they still don't see it!.

Overall: Easy to use. Able to keep up with current trends. Can be changed at anytime with many options. Good checkout process.Direct links with social media , payment systems etc. Can be personalised.

Quick and easy service to get a website online fast.

Pros: It's just so intuitive and easy to use. In addition to the great software is a highly responsive support team who have always been able to solve any issue I have been faced with.

Cons: For what Rocketspark is aiming to achieve, I can't think of anything I dislike. They may consider going for a 'plus' version where the templates are much more advanced.

Overall: It enabled me to easily articulate my business online.

Hi James, thanks for your review! We recently added a lot more design control with Rocketspark as well as some new templates. If there's any specific design elements you're wanting to change but can't, please let us know and we can consider them as part of our feature roadmap.

Pros: Its easy to use, fast to edit and support is always close at hand. Its great that you take care of domain names etc too in the package.

Cons: There is no option for the Coupon codes to only work on a specific Category, instead its a blanket. This has made promotions extremely hard and time consuming for us, and whenever we recommend your site to people and they ask its an immediate turn off that it doesnt have this function like other sites such as Shopify and Big Cartel have. Its the main reason we have looked to change providers.

Hi Julie, we have category, brand and product specific coupons and promotions/discounts in the feature roadmap for this quarter, along with some other exciting ecommerce features. We will definitely let you know once we launch those features and hopefully they make an impact for your business.

Many Pros, one important Con.

Pros: Great toolbox, continuous improvements, very accessible and approachable and helpful team. No pre-knowledge required. Good functionality, for a wide range of purposes.

Cons: Only downside: Once Rocketspark, always Rocketspark, as the platform is not in a common shared format. If you don't mind that, go ahead.

Overall: Great help for the startup for my business. I did not need any help apart from occasional help from you. Very intuitive.

I've loved having Rocketspark for my website, always someone to help and its so easy.

Pros: Being able to upload material with ease, and having some good tools to personalise the look and feel of the site.

Cons: There have been a few looks I haven't been able to nail, but in most cases I have found a work-around that I've come to enjoy. Will look forward to new features as they are added. Thank you! I had a few problems with the initial set up - mainly due to changing our preference of web addresses - we had 2 and wanted to make the secondary address the main address for the new site. Most issues due to my tech limitations, but the Rocketspark Team were great in getting me back on track. Much appreciated.

Overall: Being about to experiment with the features to achieve the look we wanted for our practice. As we operate in the design world we needed a site that reflected our personal style - previous attempts to translate this to website designers had been disappointing and frustrating.

My experience with Rocketspark has been nothing but positive.

Pros: Easy to use and idiot proof. Support has always been prompt and helpful. I would recommend Rocketspark to everyone.

Cons: Don't have any cons really. I suppose you could always be more competitive in design features and prices, but I'm only saying this to fill out the words needed to submit this review.

Rocketspark have been great to deal with and the platform is easy to use

Pros: The support is good. I like the way the i can build my own website with your support. The feeds to my social media is great. Customers report the website is easy to browse.
In general this is very good and reliable software so well done guys and thank you.

Cons: I don't like the check-out of my shop. Current configurations are confusing to customers. I don't think long term having to use only one drop down for customers to state where they are from and what area delivery is for will be sufficient. Also not even being able to change the wording on that drop down to indicate delivery instead of country is a little frustrating. Overall customer feed back is its clumsy and difficult to understand.
When a customer has a purchase in their basket and wants to go back to the store, it returns right back to the start of the shop not where they left off. This makes shopping for multiple items a longer process then need be for the customer. Thank you for the opportunity to advise and review.

Hi Karl, thanks for your feedback. We have some exciting improvements coming for the buyer checkout journey, including a completely new look and feel. Some major changes that will give a very slick buyer experience. Regarding the shipping drop down, this is also on our radar as something that can be improved.

Pros: It is so incredibly easy to use and I can make changes to my site so quickly. My IT friend said I would hate WordPress if I ever had to use it because it is no where near as easy to use as this

Cons: When I develop a table in the site it doesn't look any good. When I type in www.rocketspark.com.au the Australian site login screen doesn't come up on Google.

Overall: Quick and easy

Hi Jackie, we launched a new version of our text editor recently with improved table functionality. Please check it out and let us know if it's improved the experience for you.

As a novice, this was the only website of many that l tried that was exceptionally easy to create.

Pros: I can change anything l want when l want, l can alter the whole look of the website if l want with the click of a button, but best of all and the one thing l found much better than other website providers that l found was these guys really mean what they say when it comes to after sale service, they have gone far beyond my expectations. When l needed advice, layout support, technical support l found them very approachable and supportive. One thing that also makes them stand out is when your not tech savvy, they speak in normal peoples language, so that you actually understand what they are saying without feeling stupid. I can't say enough positives about this company, they are what they say when they say it, which is much more than the other companies who spouted the same notion but never delivered the after sales support. These guys (just ask they they will be there) so my experience thus far tells me. Cheers Karen (Buderim , Qld)

Cons: The sizing of banners l have to say is tricky, l had to mess around with resizing so many times, but small price to pay for a great website, but thats about my only complaint.
