Wisepops Poptin

Why marketers look for Poptin alternatives…

    • “The product is so clunky that I had to uninstall it as soon as I added it to my shop. 

      There are plenty of better options out there.”

      Lovasos, a Shopify App Store review
    • “The script that Poptin loads on your site to work is heavier than it needs to be, in my opinion, which slowed our pages down slightly. 

      The graphical editor is also a little bit janky. It can be hard to align things perfectly.”

      Rob L., a G2 review
    • “I had to ultimately uninstall after only a couple days. New leads were not being added to my Shopify customers or getting the automatic welcome email even though I added the required content box…

      I was advised by chat support to uninstall and reinstall - inconvenient and that still didn't work. They then wanted access to my shopify back end to look at it. Too much for a simple pop up.”

      “Wisepops helped me in many ways. I increased my conversion rate with marketing messages displayed at the right moment thanks to their targeting options…

      …It integrates very well within my stack (Klaviyo for emails and Postscript for SMS).”

      “Wisepops is used by our marketing team, to make sure all our efforts are launched without having to wait for the dev team…

      Everything about this tool is great, especially at a relatively low cost for such an impact you can have for your business.”

Seven reasons to choose Wisepops over Poptin

  • Onsite notifications
  • More intuitive campaign builder
  • More advanced analytics
  • Built-in targeting of Klaviyo segments
  • Built-in unique Shopify discounts
  • More attractive popup templates
  • Customer support for non-US users
Reason 1

Onsite notifications

Onsite notifications serve as a unique channel for delivering marketing messages—similar to the format seen on social media, but for websites.

Onsite notifications are perfect for engaging visitors. They come with advanced targeting, personalization, and seamless integration capabilities with your CRM or ESP.

revenue for the launch of our new product range and
we will be making use of the notifications for future campaigns and product launches.

Reason 2

More intuitive campaign builder

The campaign editor in Poptin is a good tool for creating popup campaigns. Yet, when you first use it, you might not find it very user-friendly. This is mainly due to the unintuitive and sometimes packed menus and submenus, which also gives it a bit of an outdated feel.

The reviews from some of the Poptin users support this:

    • “Sometimes menus are a bit misleading and unintuitive, especially with the AB testing.”

      Dhiraj S., GetApp review
    • “This app pretty much sucks. It's not user friendly and it's difficult to figure out how to design the pop-up form to function exactly the way you want it to.”

      WoofPackTrails, a Shopify App Store review
    • “The structure of users and admins is annoying, I have to hit the chat frequently to get access to features I ought to be able to access without interaction.”

      Tom W., G2 review

On the other hand—

The Wisepops editor is more modern and intuitive. Most features are neatly placed on the left side of the screen, and you can access many of them without blocking the campaign view. The smart layout of the popup editor makes Wisepops a great option for beginners.

That's why people who use Wisepops find the editor super easy to use. It makes the experience better, especially for new users.

      With very modest traffic and a week, I've captured over 160 emails and 20 sales from offering a code on exit intent.”

      “[Wisepops] is simple enough that someone like me, who doesn't have a super techy background can create engaging popups on my website in minutes. 

      The 60 or so ready-to-use templates are all great, and they're totally customizable..."

      Verified reviewer, Capterra
Reason 3

More advanced analytics

Compared to Poptin, Wisepops analytics are much more powerful. Not only does our onsite marketing platform give you stats for all campaigns and channels—popups, onsite notifications, bars, and embeds—but you also get actionable insights with customizable reports.

For example, Wisepops gives you a breakdown of your most impactful campaigns...

Pages that get maximum conversions...

The most engaged countries and regions...

And the stats by devices your customers are using:

On the other hand—

Poptin’s campaign analytics are very limited. You only get basic info: visitors, views, conversions, and the conversion rate. While certainly useful, they might not always be enough to get the full picture.

Reason 4

Built-in targeting of Klaviyo segments

Both Wisepops and Poptin have a native integration with Klaviyo. Yet, Wisepops is a better tool for Klaviyo users because it has built-in targeting of Klaviyo segments. That means you can view the data from segments inside Wisepops and create personalized campaigns based on them for your website.

Reason 5

Built-in unique Shopify discount codes

Both Wisepops and Poptin have native Shopify integration and built-in targeting properties. But Wisepops also includes unique discount codes. This means you can choose the unique discounts from your Shopify dashboard inside Wisepops and add them to your campaigns, easily.

Reason 6

More attractive popup templates

Poptin has lots of popup templates for you to pick from, but not all of them are super impressive. Some might even look a bit boring, which could make it harder to catch visitors' attention. This is especially true if you want your campaigns to match the modern styles of most online stores.

On the other hand, Wisepops has really modern and stylish templates to inspire you.

You can use them to get ideas and make your own cool-looking and engaging designs. The modern and classy look of these templates will grab visitors' attention better and show off your brand's identity and image:

Reason 7

Customer support for US users

The customer support at Poptin does not cover all US time zones because the company has no local support agents. So, US clients can get answers only from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm (UTC+3).

On the other hand, Wisepops has a customer support team that covers every US time zone, thanks to our agents based in North America.  Besides, you can get support in multiple languages, including French and Spanish.

That’s why American clients often mention the customer service team in reviews:
