General Question

Who provides user support to the buyer2021-10-21T17:03:17+03:00

SaaShop answers the inquiries of the buyer related to the SaaS product, processes them and, if necessary, forwards them to the seller, or seeks a response from the seller.

With the Concierge and API -service SaaShop will also manage additional customer services:

  • general customer service, such as billing and contract matters,
  • support for basic deployment and
  • counseling and guidance in problem situations.

Support related to the use of the product and technical problems is provided to the Buyer by the Seller’s own Support Service. SaaShop directs these inquiries directly to Customer Support, or requests responses and delivers them to the Buyer.
