5 Best Shopify Apps For Customer Reviews

A product with five reviews is almost three times more likely to be purchased than a product with just one review. 

Driving up your average order value and return on ad spend with higher value and volumes of orders can be achieved with something as simple as increasing customer reviews. According to INC, 88% of online customers read reviews before making any purchasing decisions.

 For product-specific information, Spiegel Research Centre shows that 95% of shoppers read reviews before making a purchase. Customer reviews matter because people trust people. They provide credibility and social proof for potential customers; 85% of Millennials say reviews influence their purchasing choices. Reviews can provide customers with a voice and increase customer loyalty by allowing them to engage directly with your brand. 

What's more, customer reviews can be very helpful for you as a brand owner, allowing you to understand what is good and bad about your products, giving you the direct ability to iterate on your product development, while also leveraging these insights to improve your marketing messaging and product detail page content.
