Their themes are optimized for speed and come with an easy setup which means you can customize everything on their website via the WordPress customizer.
We have had contacted their support with some billing issues and they replied promptly and resolved the issues for us. For technical support, they encourage you to use the forum and we found that they are pretty active there and users are getting fast replies.
One problem I found with them is that their themes do not offer a custom control panel, they use the WordPress customizer to change theme settings and options. In fact, we never felt that it is a con as we can change almost everything via the customizer.
We absolutely love Happythemes for various reasons such as affordable prices, ease of use and also love them for the optimized code which offers super-fast loading time.
