Fantastic Customer Service and Support Team
Paula and the support team are fantastic! I was so closed to giving up and Paula and the team came to the rescue and made everything work and come to life. Out of the 8-10 years of being in the E-commerce business, this type of customer service is very missed and very rare. I applaud you and your team and I hope you all continue doing well and enjoy success!
