    Pros: 

    Quick, great communication, great product.

    Cons: 

    None.

    A friend referred me to Lorem, and I didn't go in with huge expectations as I've used other Shopify developer services. My experience was awesome, they were high touch and the quality of work and value of that work was excellent. I will continue to use their service!

    Pros: 

    Faster development, decreased dependency on internal engineering resources, exceptional support

    Cons: 

    None! Chrome capatability update took care of any performance or accessibility issues I had

    For the last 2 years, Loren has filled crucial gaps for our marketing team, allowing internal engineering team to focus on product, not small tweaks and 1-off tasks. I‘ve done about 8 projects with Lorem and always pull the trigger on any Wordpress ideas we have.

    Pros: 

    Lorem ensures that both clients and freelancers will receive a quality professional experience when contracting work.

    Cons: 

    None!

    I’ve been using Lorem as a freelancer for the past month, and I love it. From the freelancer side, Lorem removes all of the usual pain points: Finding clients, getting outbid by low cost of living markets, tracking down invoices and following up with non-responsive clients. When you get paired with a potential customer, you are the only one bidding on the project so there is no need to competing against hundreds of other candidates. If customers become non-responsive, Lorem HQ will follow up with them on your behalf to ensure projects are moving forward and not stalling out.

    From the customer facing side, Lorem takes all of the headache out of finding a quality freelancer. You won’t have to sort through an overwhelming number of applications, and you won’t need to worry if the freelancer you’ve selected is qualified for the job. Lorem is very selective about the freelancers who get to use the platform, so anyone you get paired with will be pre-qualified.

    The thing that really makes Lorem tick is that they monitor the experience for everyone, ensuring that the clients are respectful and communicative, and that the freelancers are quoting fair rates and delivering on time.

    Quick, affordable, reliable help on ANY task

    Cons: 

    Nope

    Lorem totally helped me when I didn't know what I was doing. It's so refreshing to know I'm talking to someone who ACTUALLY KNOWS what they're doing. A huge timesaver and I couldnt have built my website without them. Highly recommended!
