What’s your support policy?
Customer satisfaction is our top most priority. We take pride in providing our customers with professional and friendly support to ensure that our products suit their needs.
I bought and installed the Venture theme by Themes Harbor – it was a very straightforward process. Setting up the home page was also easy enough as it is all outlined in the documentation step by step. Whenever I needed help, the support team was there and always responded promptly – they went above and beyond actually. Unfortunately, due to lack of research on my end, I had to change the theme in the end because I needed something else (within the guarantee period so I got my money back within days) but if you are looking for the functionality outlined on the demo home page of the Venture theme – I would definitely recommend it. The team was extremely helpful and friendly.
