Outage Addressed: We’re Back Up and Running!

We’d like to extend our most sincere THANK YOU to our community of merchants and customers affected by the recent Facebook permissions update disabling much of our comment recognition activity.

For those merchants that have accrued a substantial amount of comments during the service outage, our engineers invite you to submit a ticket through our support portal to have a retro-active comment scraping initiated.

In the “Message” section of the ticket portal, please state “I am a merchant that needs retro active ticket scraping from _(date/time) to _(date time) on this list of products (list items for which comments need to be scraped).”

You can submit your ticket at this page
