Poor Business Practices by ShopmarketingHelper.com

ShopMarketingHelper.com is an app that claims to promotes your shop for you on Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot, StumbleUpon and Tumblr. If you think it is great, think again.

The app is buggy right from the get-go. The user cannot log in to your app once payment has been processed. www.twitpic.com/9g9bai

My many e-mails to the owner were ignored. I tried for help on the Etsy Team page and sure enough he responding there by deleting my posts and also removed me from the team

Finally I filed for a claim via PayPal. At once I receive an e-mail from the owner stating that "I'm banning you from the app and cancelling your subscriptions. " without any further explanation or help.

It seems that other people are also having problems logging in

Same solution of deleting posts by people having issues.

What kind of an app is this? It doesn't work and the owner just takes your money and sits on it, while you are left wondering without being able to log in.


Please be very careful of purchasing such shady applications online.
