I purchased this program and the up grade but I'm finding the "teaching" Shopify to be very confusing and incomplete. I asked for a refund but was told I could only get one if I demonstrated that I had spent 60 days trying to implement it. Since I can't follow their program how can I implement anything from it? Has anyone else had this problem or is this just because I am a "senior citizen"?

    Why would being a senior citizen be an excuse for not being able to follow something? You are as young as you think and act.

      Probably because it is nearly all video. I like the written word and with video I have to do all the writing - plus the text they do have under the video is pale blue on white - difficult to read. I found the navigation very confusing.
      Never mind - with their "refund" policy it pretty well ensures they will never have refund. Did you take a look at the program or were you just reacting ot the "senior citizens" comment?

        I bought the class (I was curious) and while they have some decent tactics, the course is way incomplete. If you used a credit card or PayPal, charge it back. Just don't expect the extra $100 which no one would anyway.

        It was a rushed course, poorly designed and while there are certainly some gems, for a person just starting out, it is a lot of hype. Just my take on it.

        You are entitled to a refund and if you paid by paypal open a dispute.
        Any decent marketer should never refuse a refund.
        Ecom is a great idea and I have promoted it but if you cannot understand the teaching then its worthless to you.
        Hope that helps

    Hey I bought the course too and I wouldn't give up yet. If anything, the course should have opened you up to the tremendous possibility in a still majorily untapped way of selling to people online.

    Remember that the guys who made the course are no smarter than you, regardless of age.. just more experienced.

    I think that video is really the best way to demonstrate a course like this because the case studies are really what's most important. You want to watch how they created their campaigns so you can duplicate.

    If you purchased the upgrade, make sure you find the link to join the Facebook group. It's extremenly active with plenty of newbies, and the product owners are in there helping all the time.

    While I agree the course could have been a little more polished, I'm not new to Facebook marketing or ecommerce and find it to have a lot of value. The Facebook modules and case studies are probably the gems of the whole thing- the rest is just walking through how to build a Shopify store.

    Anyway, just my opinion. Don't quit before the 2-week bootcamp. The whole course has a 60-day refund, don't be one of those people who does a chargeback without even trying.

    Best of luck! I'm going through it too, feel free to ask me if you have any questions.

    I also bought this and agree with the critics here. The first man for instance talks far too fast and as if he is under time pressure and sometimes explains as if he was talking to already fullblown experts in the field and too superficially explain aspects just too hasty and insufficient. Sometimes even difficult to hear what he is saying.
    Example: he mention an important aspect called "CSV file", but not a bit of nearer explanation of what that is and how to procure it. At least i have no idea what that is, but maybe you all here know ?

    Written option is indeed needed, especially for us of non-native english speaking origin.
    Good that we can get a refund anyhow via paypal !

      I too purchased this but because I got it via Chris Record, he was giving away his free Bridgepages platform/software to create pages which makes creating a website a lot easier.

      I found the course very easy to follow and was happy that the videos were short and sweet (despite me being an Asian)...and yes, do get into that facebook community, I'm sure you will get help from people like Robert Austin and Justin. Give it a go for the next 50+ days (remaining) and reach out to like-minded newbies for assistance. If it's not your type after 60 days, I'm sure they will refund your money.

    Usually you should be weary of products that have those type of money back guarantees. It is usually difficult to get the money back & shows they don't have too much faith in their product.

      I am waiting for the next module that will teach me how to find all those cashed-up buyers who will pay me double the price of the products that I purchased from eBay and Amazon to sell to them.

      Also to explain why these buyers can't find eBay and Amazon websites on their own browsers to purchase these products at half the price as I did.

      I have unsubscribed from all the affiliates who sent me emails about this.

        It's possible for this model to work, but I doubt it will be in 2 weeks unless you come up with a good niche idea.
