Bowlifi Bad experience
on: March 05, 2018, 11:38:22 AM
 I would like to know your experience with this company.

HERE IS MINE!!!!!!
 They are way behind on my order. It looks like week six if they are telling me the truth. according to the complaints on the BBB website, Their reviews say they pretty much will say anything like: its to ship this week. Problem is they tell the same customer that same line for weeks. They have a big fat F on the BBB site as well. I know some things can't be helped but as a customer it would be nice to be in the loop as to what's going on. Customer service lady has no clue.. I feel like she is caught in the middle and just randomly answers questions. Weird thing customer service number is a Chicago number and the Company is in another state. I learned a lesson on this company and I wanted to warn anyone looking for a jersey and the need it within 2-6 months, look some place else. Especially if it's a big school order. This company can't provide to single order customers in a timely manner. Forget getting anywhere with customer service.... she (the only CS rep they have) knows nothing and is quite rude to boot. that being said... Could somebody point me in the right direction with a company that cares about their customers? I've got a couple jerseys to buy.

I have heard nothing but bad things with bowlifi...

I'm about 20 or so jerseys deep with Apparel Efx....😎

You wear them to league?

I have ordered 10 or so for one team I'm on a massive team,  7 for another, and this year another 8 for the big team.

But yes...in league 😎😎😎

10 people on a team? Is this for league? Must be a real bitch to find a place to put all those bags on league night.  :o

No it's a 8 man roster. People come down and drink and cheer us on. We got a huge following...but we're dtraying from the point.

So It seems that I've cause enough stink over my shirt (I planned on having for this weekends event) and the useless/rude customer service woman, that Steve the owner is to call me personally tonight.. hmmm we'll see

I'm curious to hear how this goes. I had been seriously considering ordering one or two of the Average Joe practice jerseys - great price, great design (on some of them, at least).

I ordered one from Bowlifi. You'll see a thread on it about 4 months back. I chose them because I truly thought their designs presented better than other websites.
Man, was it painful. They did everything wrong and don't deserve any more of my time than to help save someone else the pain. But buyer beware... You've been warned.

I did talk to the owner Steve last night. It was unexpected but we did talk. He seemed super nice and he said he personally talks to customers that do have issues. It really seemed like he wanted fix my issue. He is going to track my order down and see what's going on. He also said he is going to change things to make it better for customers. He did admit to some issues he's having and has been working with his team to fix. I will post updates as this process moves along. I'm hoping he comes through on my order, and after talking to him.... I think he will

Please note that Bowlifi has been saying these same things for more than a year. Sounds like the same words he used on Facebook in early 2017. If they aren't fixed by now, they probably never will be.

I love the look of the Average Joe's practice jerseys. I just won't buy them from Bowlifi.

You may check and see if Average joe has them on hand..

Also, the way Bowlifi is set up... Bowlifi has nothing to do with the orders. It's seems to be a turnkey company. We are buying from South America through his website with his logo. You and I can spend 100.00 for a website with all of the suppliers built in. You decide how much profit to make.  Make your  logo and sell the same exact shirts with your new logo.. The factory ships straight to customer. Sounds easy and a pretty simple money machine, but I'm not interested in customers being mad at me and my company when my company never touches the merchandise..  So, basically...He probably means well, but is at the mercy of the factory/producer.

Not a fan of most of their designs, at least not their older ones. Some of the newer ones look better. However, this run around that people are getting reminds me exactly like Boom Apparel. They were constantly messing up and taking forever. Same excuses given that I'm hearing about with Bowlifi.

Outside of Boom, I have bought all my jerseys from Logo Infusion. I like their designs and they have been easy to deal with. However, their jerseys seem to snag easily. Nearly all my jerseys (and I have quite a few) have some kind of snag in them. As troublesome as Boom was, none of those snagged.

I'm thinking Apparel EFX for my next set of jerseys. Designs look good and feedback seems positive.

Does Apparel EFX even have a website you can order from?
