This guide offers an introduction to the Judge.me review site and provides a starting point for your journey with it. The Judge.me review site integrates your Shopify store's product descriptions with reviews sourced from your Judge.me Product Reviews app.
With a range of customizable features, you can effectively showcase your outstanding reviews and direct potential customers to your Shopify store. Explore the benefits and future roadmap of our review site.
Upon activating the review site, you'll gain access to the following features:
Store Page: Showcase your store's details, prominently display both product and shop-level reviews, and encourage more reviews from your customers.
Product Pages: Present comprehensive product information, highlight product benefits through specific product reviews, and channel prospective buyers to your store.

What sets the Judge.me review site apart?
You have the flexibility to exhibit both product and shop-level reviews on your store page, as well as product reviews on individual product pages. Customers can also submit additional reviews using the review form.
The reviews featured on our review site mirror the content and language of the reviews in your Judge.me Product Reviews app. For instance, if your reviews are in French, they will appear in French on the review site. Meanwhile, all text and labeling provided by Judge.me will remain in English.
Your product descriptions are directly sourced from your Shopify store. Each product page features a call-to-action (CTA) linked to the corresponding product page on your store, easy for buyers to complete their purchases.
Several settings on the review site replicate the widget settings on your store pages, including the "Write a Review" button, thumbs (upvote) buttons, social share buttons, review photos and videos, and Q&A. Additionally, you can display the Q&A Star Ratings if the Q&A feature is enabled.
You possess the ability to curate your reviews and publish only those you choose, similar to the functionality in the Judge.me Product Reviews app.
Various features are available to highlight your reviews and make them more conspicuous to potential customers, such as the card carousel, with more enhancements like pinned reviews and highlighted quotes on the horizon.
You can earn Judge.me medals that showcase the quality and quantity of your reviews. These medals serve as strong indicators of trustworthiness for your store, aiding customers in making informed purchase decisions. Learn more about the different types, levels, and conditions of Judge.me medals.
Our pricing model is designed to ensure you only pay for the value you receive. Currently, all aspects of the Judge.me review site are free of charge. In the future, we anticipate offering two plans: one that displays your listing for free without CTAs and another that displays your listing with CTAs to your product pages, with charges based on referral clicks or sales generated when we direct traffic to your store. Rest assured, we will notify you when we implement charges, and the decision to continue using our review site will be entirely at your discretion. We will never impose charges without your consent.
If the review site doesn't align with your preferences, you can opt out of it via the settings.
We hope this guide provides you with a clear understanding of the Judge.me review site and how it can enhance your e-commerce experience.
