✉️ Review Reminders – Make Reviewing Easy

Customer Reviews for WooCommerce makes reviewing simple.

It’s an easy process:

  1. Your customer places an order.
  2. You fulfill the order and mark it as completed.
  3. After a delay (customizable by you), your customer receives an automated review request email.
  4. The customer leaves a review for all of their purchases on our aggregated form. Reviews can include ratings and images to increase trust.
  5. The review is posted to WooCommerce and published on your site.

You can even choose to automatically send the customer a discount code for future purchases as a thank you.

Plus, benefit from:

  • A one-page review form where customers can review multiple items in one go
  • Manual email invitations for selected orders

💸 Boost Sales – With Extra Features

Did you know that displaying reviews can increase conversion by 270%?

Reviews show that people can trust your site. Other people have bought from you before, and it went so well that they want to share their experience. That social proof is important. Customers need to know your product images and descriptions can be trusted. They need to know their bank account is safe.

Market to your existing customers!

It’s simple: our review reminders keep you in the forefront of their minds, and offering coupon codes for future purchases gets them back to your store.

It’s easy for a customer to leave a review and receive their coupon, which creates a double whammy effect: the customer comes back for more, and you gain valuable feedback. Maybe they’ll even gift the voucher to a friend!

Plus, benefit from:

  • Automatically generating new coupons for ongoing customer reviews
  • Fair rules for coupon creation – customers will be awarded with a coupon regardless of how positive or negative their review is

Kwel-vrae

I found a bug in the plugin. How to get it fixed?

Please create a new topic at the support forum and provide detailed information with a screenshot.

How to get Site Key and Secret Key for reCAPTCHA?

Please visit reCAPTCHA website and sign up for an account. Then, you will be able to get API key pair (Site Key and Secret Key) for your website. Copy these keys and paste into the settings of the plugin.

Will collected reviews be shown as stars in Google?

The standard WooCommerce functionality already includes structured data mark up to display your product reviews effectively within organic search results. This plugin extends the standard functionality and adds some extra mark up to help search engines properly crawl your shop. It is important to understand that having a valid structured data mark up in place makes your website eligible for organic stars in Google but it doesn’t guarantee that they will be shown. You can test the rich snippets using Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool.

How to customize template of the reviews on a single product page?

The plugin uses the standard reviews template provided by WooCommerce and enhances it with the reviews summary bar. If your theme requires a customized reviews template or you would like to use a customized reviews template for some other reason, it is possible to do so. Here is how to do it:
1) Create a folder ‘customer-reviews-woocommerce’ in your current theme’s folder.
2) Copy file ‘cr-single-product-reviews.php’ from ‘templates’ subfolder in the plugin’s folder to the folder created at step 1.
3) Customize the file ‘cr-single-product-reviews.php’ in the current theme’s folder according to your requirements.

How to Change Sorting of Reviews?

If you would like to change how reviews are sorted on product pages, it is possible to do so using the standard WordPress functionality. Go to Settings -> Discussion menu and find options “Break comments into pages with X top level comments per page and the last/first page displayed by default” and “Comments should be displayed with the older/newer comments at the top of each page”. You can control how reviews are sorted and displayed on product pages by modifying these options.

I have had issues with this plugin and no resolution to many issues. Customers are not receiving awards for the reviews – this keeps happening and there is no functionality to resend the codes and no info to track it.Downgrading review to 2 stars.

Used to be a nice plugin until they implemented a rule that was applied retroactively from a CBD testimonial in 2021 resulting now in “No Page” found because [insulting term removed by moderator] decided to block it. It was working perfectly until two or three weeks ago but they are just being a bully from what I can tell. Despite explaining the situation on new implementation and corrective measure by removing the testimonial, the new rule is applied retroactively. Time to find another plugin.

This plug in has a lot to offer for the free version. With some ingenuity, I was able to design some pretty professional emails using WooCommerce Email templates and use this plug in to auto-send, etc. I like it. It is pretty awesome! There is one email that the Plug In author’s brand colors are overwriting mine and I need to figure that out, but otherwise, everthing is working and customers are leaving reviews! Yay!

This plugin offers A LOT even in the free version. It might take some time to configure it properly. And keep in mind that some details (everything regarding GDPR) are not the developer’s fault. But once configured, it does an amazing job. If you know a thing or two about CSS and PHP, you can make it a great tool for your online shop. So far, no complaints at all.
