    Podia may look promising, but its customer service is NOT attuned to the needs of small business customers. I briefly experimented with Podia, missed that it billed my account last year, then discovered it billed me this year for my annual renewal date.Despite the fact that I didn’t use the platform at all last year, customer service was unmoveable in refunding my annual fee for the year ahead.This is way beneath industry standard, especially for a $390 annual payment (woof) for a small business that isn’t using the software. As a low marginal-cost tech-based platform, this choice really screws the customer β€” so stay far away, lest you make the same mistake I did and find no courtesy whatsoever from this business.

      Hi Megan,

      Thanks for sharing your insights about Podia.
      I was evaluating this platform and almost going to confirm it until I read your comment.
      Besides the horrible customer service, is there other things I should be of concern about?
