"do not sign up for automatic billing"

December 18, 2015  |  By emmaclaire1

2015-12-18 13:13:46  |  By emmaclaire1

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

It said it did save the files

Cons

This company makes hurdles after hurdles to cancel.
Never retrieved the files from their cloud storage so I am not sure if it did anything or not.
The day when you cancel the subscription, they will delete all the files they said they saved for me.

Summary

To cancel please call the number to talk to a person. Quicker than just emails.
If you signed up automatic billing, even after you cancel it on the phone, you need to send an email or phone PayPal, in my case, to stop automatic payment. So their billing department does not communicate with the department deals with cancel subscription?
Lastly, ask for an email confirmation from them that they indeed canceled your subscription.

"don't do it!i wish i'd have read this first"

February 19, 2015  |  By saltim74

2015-02-19 00:35:27  |  By saltim74

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

It's hard to find any - i suppose their software is usable?

Cons

everything is extras - i've spent £280.00 and cancelled my account after 5 days.
the 'unlimited' is limited to 50gb - they call it 'fair usage' and put a stop on the account.
amazing how they get away with it

Summary

these reviews are bang on the money - you also need to check who you're going with - because zip cloud has many guises. the way i fouund out was by clicking on the contacts page - they're all in the same building in southampton.
they do set all payments up as repeat, so be warned.
i used paypal, so i'm hoping i have some hope of getting my money back. what a bunch of charlatans.

"Thanks for nothing."

December 08, 2014  |  By BlueEyedTraveler

2014-12-08 13:05:34  |  By BlueEyedTraveler

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

They haven't come to my house to steal things yet.

Cons

After the initial upload, the software stopped working. The software just won't back up my data, regardless of how many times I update it or uninstall/reinstall. I paid for a two year subscription with automatic renewal. Forgot about the automatic renewal; two years later now I've paid for another two years of non-service and Paypal refuses to refund the $$. Thanks for nothing, ZipCloud.

"Ignore Zipcloud!"

May 26, 2014  |  By ui30

2014-05-26 12:43:20  |  By ui30

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

it does back up... and that's about it.

Cons

You need to pay extra to get faster download speed
You need to pay extra to backup video files
You need to pay extra to backup large files
You need to pay extra for almost anything...
They promise: no locking in, you can end the subscription whenever you want. It is stated clearly on the ZipCloud web site that you will get your money back for the remainder of the subscription period.
You get: no money back, e-mails being ignored, a reference to the terms and conditions that say that a refund is not possible. If yuou read it, it looks like they talk about the extra services. Well, they don't.
They promise: great apps for a low price, very good offers. You get: apps that hardly get the job done and you need to stay until the subscription period is over.
They promise: you can backup an unlimited number of files. You get limited backup space.

Summary

Don't go for this "service". There are far better companies out there who do what they say and don't lie.

I was stupid enough to get a 3-year subscription at a great discount. Well, it is still too expensive and I can't end my subscription because they won't give a refund.

"Forced upgrade when 80GB remaining scheme"

December 06, 2013  |  By MattBianco

2013-12-06 09:29:05  |  By MattBianco

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

It does back up almost

Cons

- Refuses to perform back up as it forces upgrades first
- You can purchase upgrades and it forces more upgrades
- Eventually forces you to buy additional licenses when you have sufficient space in the cloud
- When you call to cancel, they want to give you additional licenses, although

Summary

I have an 8 minutes recording of my conversation with them, which they authorized me to record, showing how clueless their billing dept. is, and how they, in not so many words, agree this is a scam by saying I can "ignore" the upgrade requirements.

"Non working software from Deceptive company"

November 25, 2013  |  By ljcloud

2013-11-25 22:23:25  |  By ljcloud

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

Only Pros is how professional these con men are

Cons

Poor product
Bait and Switch
Utilizing confusing Terms and Conditions to steal

Summary

As many mentioned above, initially brought in by the low cost promise however that was quickly dashed after signing up and then being bombarded with "special" features for extra costs (that are free with many other cloud providers). After finding their product didn't work as needed, I asked for a refund. They continued responding with special offers for additional time and reduced costs (even though I told them it DOESN"T WORK). Finally they responded that no refund was allowed because it was not within the 30 day money back guarantee period. I have never dealt with a more dishonest service and cannot believe CNET has not investigated and changed their review of this criminal company.

"Simply awful"

October 25, 2013  |  By purepr

2013-10-25 15:11:13  |  By purepr

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

They finally closed my account as requested.

Cons

ZipCloud did not work as advertised
They refused my request for a refund
Huge waste of time trying to troubleshoot a flawed application

Summary

My two-month experience with ZipCloud: At first, the daily automatic backups I scheduled didn't start at all. After installing a "new version," backups began starting every five minutes. Yet another version solved those problems, but that's when I discovered that hundreds of files I had selected for backups were never saved at all. To top things off, citing a 30-day limit, ZipCloud refused to refund the $125 I'd spent for unlimited backup space for a year.

"Zero Stars"

October 22, 2013  |  By garrettgman55

2013-10-22 15:48:20  |  By garrettgman55

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

Unlimited Storage. That's all

Cons

Too many to list.

Summary

Like every other person on here I have been ripped off by this company. DO NOT buy this software. It may look like a good deal at first but with all the up-selling they do for little features you end up spending way more money than any other backup. I have had the same exact experience as most reviewers on here. It's not a fluke that they have less than one star. I only wish I would have seen these reviews prior to purchasing the product.

DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE! IT IS A SCAM.

"Be Warned!"

October 18, 2013  |  By brettjw

2013-10-18 11:47:31  |  By brettjw

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

Work great until they got gready!

Cons

Tons! lack of customer service and bait and switch to begin with!

Summary

I simply want to repeat the review from tallgaloot2 above. The exact same thing happen to me. The only difference was that I was able to find a phone number and called to inquire about the switch to a business account. I was referred to the legal department and the only way to reach them was via email. They never responded to my emails. after the time frame was up, my account and all my data (over 800gb) was delete (so they say). I called back and told them that I never heard back from the legal department and they basic said sorry, but nothing we can do. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was told they don't have supervisors and the person I was speaking to was the only one available. I told them I wanted all the money I had spent with them back and they said that was not an option, but after 30 minutes of screaming at him he said he would have the billing manager call me with in 48 hours and guess what, never heard back from him either - I did get an email asking for a paypal email address so they could refund the partial payment from the last month. This company has other names they do business under so be careful. They operate as mypcbackup, zipcloud, justcloud and backup genie. Same website, just different colors. Watch your back - they will take your money and run.

"Bad Customer Service, Seems Almost Like a Scam!"

September 05, 2013  |  By arcurlyq

2013-09-05 11:44:20  |  By arcurlyq

 |  Version: ZipCloud 1.4.0.6

Pros

The service is fairly inexpensive (or at least seems to be relative to other online back-up services)

Cons

Software is buggy, lots of pop-up ads to try and get you to send invites to other people, slow.

Summary

I was looking for an affordable online back-up service for my Mac. I downloaded the Zipcloud software and attempted to use it. Overall, I found the whole system difficult to use. It was hard to see what I was actually backing up and it took me a whole day to figure out how to select specific files for back-up. However, it kept getting stuck. On top of this, there were constant pop-up ads/reminders to try and get me to send invites to people. It was really annoying. I decided I wanted to get rid of the service after 24 hours. I emailed customer service to cancel my account. This is where things get weird. They sent back a LONG email asking what I was going to do now for back-ups and asking what they could do to keep me. I responded back I wasn't interested and just wanted to cancel. That was 2 days ago and I haven't heard anything back. They then sent an email stating that if I sent multiple emails, my initial email would "drop down in the queue," delaying my response time. Because the service makes you set up an automatic payment option via PayPal, it seems like they have to cancel the account on their end so you will no longer be billed (I assume I'm out of the first month's payment, which is fine. I just want my account canceled!).

Overall, the customer service is poor and it seems very much like a scam. If they have a decent service, they wouldn't hesitate to cancel an account.
