Getting started with WideReview πŸš€

Wide Hello and welcome to WideReview! 😁

First of all, congratulations! You've installed the app! πŸ”₯

Your store will only look better! It will be more professional and your brand image will improve.

Let's start using WideReview πŸ‘‡

Enable the app

From the WideReview homepage, the first thing you need to do is enable the app.

To do this you will need to click on the Enable/Disable WideReview button to set it to on.

Check whether WideReview is displaying

Go to your online shop and open a product page.

Scroll down and you will find a gray bar displaying a "Leave a review" button.

This confirms that WideReview is installed on your store.

If the button does not appear, wait a few seconds and remember to check your entire product page.

Add your first review to test it out

There are 4 ways to add reviews on WideReview:

From the store as a customer would, by clicking on the "Leave a review" button.
From the application by importing a CSV file containing your reviews if you already have some (See the tutorial)
From an external application like Loox for example. (See the tutorial)
From an external website like AliExpress for example. (See the tutorial)

It is not possible to write reviews directly in the application because Shopify wants to fight fake reviews.

For the sake of expediency, in this tutorial we will add a review as a customer, but you can do as you wish.

Also, you can enable or disable the display of the "Leave a review" button if you no longer want customers to leave a review.

Click on the "Leave a review " button.

Fill out the form with a test review.

πŸ’‘ Adding a file is optional and you can add a picture or a video.

Click on Publish.

You can of course translate the text and modify the colors.

Accept review from WideReview

All reviews must be accepted from WideReview in order to avoid abuse.

Open WideReview and click on Pending Reviews.

Click on Accept!

Go back to your shop and see what the review looks like.

Congratulations! You have successfully set up WideReview!

Edit the settings

Now you have to edit the settings to change the appearance to fit your site.

You will also be able to edit all the texts.

Click on Settings in WideReview.

From the General tab, select first what you want to show on your store.

Then scroll between the different sections and edit your design as needed.

By clicking on the "Leave a review" button in the preview, you will also see a preview of the review form.
