Judge.me is a versatile review platform compatible with various e-commerce platforms, including Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, and Squarespace.
In this comprehensive guide, we will lead you through the installation and setup process of our plugin specifically tailored for your WooCommerce store.
Before embarking on this journey, ensure you meet the following prerequisites:
You must have a functional domain accessible from the Internet. Localhost configurations won't suffice, and your domain must not be password-protected.
Your domain should either be a root domain (e.g., example.com) or a subdomain (e.g., sub.example.com), but not a subdirectory like (https://example.com/shop/).
Confirm that your WordPress installation publishes REST API via the path
Installing the Judge.me plugin and widgets
Step 1: Install the Judge.me product reviews plugin
Access your WordPress admin panel.
Go to the 'Plugins' section and select 'Add New.'
Search for "Judge.me" and proceed to click 'Install Now.'
Once the installation is complete, activate the Judge.me plugin.
You will now find the Judge.me plugin in the left sidebar, granting you access to your Judge.me settings and reviews.
Step 2: Install Judge.me widgets
Upon installing Judge.me, the Star Ratings and Review Widget are automatically integrated into WooCommerce's default product pages and collection pages.
Please note that these widgets are installed based on visual hooks, which may vary depending on your theme. If you wish to adjust the widget positions:

Step 4: Import reviews from WooCommerce (Optional)
Should you have reviews previously collected through WooCommerce's built-in review system, you have the option to import them into Judge.me by following these steps:
Within your WordPress admin, access the Judge.me plugin.
Go to the 'Advanced' tab and select 'Export to CSV.'
Once you've got the CSV file, click on "Get started! Open Judge.me now," then go to 'Import/Export' > 'Import reviews' > 'From Review Apps.'
Choose 'WooCommerce' and upload the CSV file received earlier.
Subsequently, you can disable the native WooCommerce built-in review system within your WordPress admin by visiting 'WooCommerce' > 'Settings' > 'Products.'
With these steps, you'll be well on your way to harnessing the power of Judge.me for your WooCommerce store's review management needs.
