In the digital age, the success of your e-commerce business hinges not only on the quality of your products but also on the power of your customer reviews. Positive reviews can turn hesitant shoppers into loyal customers, while negative reviews can steer them away. To harness this potential, many businesses turn to dedicated review platforms like Reviews.io. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of setting up product reviews on your website using Reviews.io, enhancing your online presence, and driving more sales.

Getting Started with Reviews.io

Before we dive into the technical aspects of integrating Reviews.io into your website, let's start with some basics. To set up product reviews with Reviews.io, you will need an active Reviews.io account. If you haven't signed up yet, head to their website and create an account. Reviews.io offers different pricing tiers, so choose the one that best suits your business needs.

Add an HTML Widget

Add an HTML widget to your product layout and add the below HTML into it.

<div class="ReviewsWidget panel panel-border"></div>

CSS in Theme Options

Add the below css to the theme options area of your EvoX store.

/* Reviews.co.uk style */
.ReviewsWidget.panel-border {
padding: 30px 15px 10px;
border-color: #404041;
}
/* end of Reviews.co.uk style */

Javascript in Theme Options

Finally, add the Javascript to the theme options Footer Block.

<!-- Reviews.co.uk script -->
<script>
// Review.io setup
// Check if the body has the ex-product class
var productPage = document.body.classList.contains("ex-product") ? true : false;

// run the Review.io logic and options
function runReviewLogic(productPage) {
if (productPage) {
// get the current product code from the page
var bodyClassProd = document
.querySelector(".productdetails .label")
.textContent.replace(/^Product Code: /, "");

// set the Review.io options

reviewsWidgetDuplicateId(reviewJson);
}
}
}
// run the Review io logic, if the page is a product page
if (productPage) {
runReviewLogic(productPage);
}

// This function will be called on configurable product pages when a user makes a selection.

// Add content here, if it needed to be executed on the product page after a user makes selections on a configurable product.

<!-- end of Reviews.co.uk script -->

Now go to a product page and test it's working
