2. Install Judge.me Widgets
Judge.me widgets allow you to showcase reviews on various pages of your store, including the homepage and product pages. Our Squarespace extension offers these widgets:
Review Widget: Collect and display reviews and star ratings for specific products.
Star Ratings (Stars): Display star ratings and review counts for individual products.
Floating Reviews Tab: Add a floating tab to your pages, opening to reveal product and site reviews (available on the paid Awesome plan).
Questions and Answers: Include a Q&A section in the Review Widget to assist customers in making informed decisions (available on the paid Awesome plan).
Upon installing Judge.me, the Star Ratings (stars) and Review Widget will activate automatically:
Star Ratings stars will be added to your collection and product pages. To disable this widget, go to Settings > Other Widgets > Star Ratings > Star Ratings Installation.
The Review Widget will be installed at the bottom of your product pages. To disable it, go to Settings > Review Widget > Installation. To activate other widgets, visit Settings > Other Widgets in the Judge.me app admin and select your preferred widgets.
Please note: Widgets are placed optimally on your Squarespace store, and their placement cannot be customized.
3. Customize Your Widgets
Make your Judge.me widgets integrate with your store by customizing them in the Settings. Here are some customization options:
Change star colors.
Add review photos and videos.
Modify widget text and themes (additional themes available on the Awesome plan).
Enable review curation.
4. Import Your Existing Reviews
Already have reviews on other platforms? You can effortlessly import your existing reviews using a CSV file. Follow these steps:
Begin by creating a CSV file of your reviews using our guide.
Ensure you have the Squarespace product handles to match reviews with the corresponding products (the product handle is the last part of your product URL, e.g., /shop/p/product-a).
With your CSV file ready, go to Judge.me > Import/Export > From Customers Directly (with import wizard), and upload your CSV file. For detailed import guidelines, check here.
5. Collect More Reviews
Ready to gather more reviews? With our extension, you have several methods:
Collect reviews directly through the review form in your Review Widget and Floating Reviews Tab.
Send review request emails to verified buyers. These requests are automatically scheduled when you "mark fulfilled" an order in Commerce > Orders in your Squarespace store admin. Customize request timings and templates (four default email templates available on the Free plan, with a flexible drag-and-drop email editor on the Awesome plan).

Scheduling review requests for non-physical products is not supported.
Non-physical products will not appear in the Judge.me Products dashboard because they cannot be fetched.
