After installing the Review Booster, a new visual block appears in the Reviews tab.

Product Reviews & Rating

The exact verbal representation is visible at mouseover when your customers are writing a review.

Note

Now customers can create anonymous reviews; the Nickname field is not mandatory.

Note

Customers can upload several images to their reviews.

Product Reviews & Rating

Not all ratings are created equal. A rating based on 100 reviews is more accurate than a rating based on one review. After installing Review Booster, your customers can see the number of votes a particular rating is based on.

Note

Your customers can see a chart with ratings (in percent) distribution.

Review Mode = Collect Only

When review mode is Collect Only, in this case, once the customer places an order, they will receive an email once the Order status matches with the selected status in configuration. There will be a link in the email. Using this link, the customer gets redirected to the website, and they can submit a review in the received email.

Product Reviews & Rating

As shown in the above image, the user will receive an email, and the email will have a product name with a link. So each product that will be part of the cart and user purchased will appear in the email, and the product name will have a link.

Upon clicking on the product name, the user will be redirected to the website, and a review page will appear. This page will display all products on which users can submit a review.

Product Reviews & Rating

Once the user clicks on the "Review" button, a popup form will appear in which the user will need to fill in review details, and upon submitting this popup, all details of the review will be submitted and received by the Admin.

Product Reviews & Rating

However, in review mode "Collect Only," no review that the customer submits will appear on the front-end. So this mode is only for collecting reviews.
