While some customers have noted savings as promised and helpful customer service, Commerce Energy has mostly negative reviews from customers who have posted online. To some extent this is normal, as most people tend to only post online reviews when they are unhappy (whereas satisfied customers rarely feel the need to express their opinion online). However, many customers have reported disatisfaction with door-to-door sales.
Commerce Energy has made use of door-to-door sales in the past, for which it has negative press and criticism from online reviews. In 2013 CBS San Francisco reported customer complaints of high pressure sales tactics used by door to door salespeople. This warning was echoed in Maryland, where the Better Business Bureau warned Maryland consumers of aggressive sales practices used by Commerce Energy sales representatives. Many customers who have published online reviews of the company indicated that they were under the impression that sales representatives were working on behalf of their local utility, and not Commerce Energy.
