I am having an issue with the subscription. I went through with the payment and the money was deducted already, but I still cannot access premium features. I tried to get help and check the settings but it kept redirecting me to another page that says Error. Please how can I fix this or how can I get a refund if you cannot fix this issue!!

Filedrop is awesome! I'm using it to upload a lot of Storyboard frames in a spreadsheet. This app greatly reduces the time to do that. I had some questions about the features of the app and the team responded very attentively and professionally. I love it. Thank you!

I used Filedrop for my marketing PDF reports I had to attach weekly in Sheets, it's 10x quicker to add files than adding them from Google Drive, copy and so on. Might upgrade if I need to do this every day with multiple files.
