Likelihood to Recommend
Any site with e-commerce should have reviews if possible, to give users the confidence necessary to click "add to cart." PowerReviews is easy to implement and has highly customizable display possibilities. I would recommend them to a mid to large enterprise looking for a scalable solution. Small businesses might be able to use a more stripped down tool.

ResellerRatings is a good tool for collecting ratings and quantifying how satisfied a user is with your website. It is relatively easy to implement and get setup and does have some pre-built widgets for adding reviews to your site. ResellerRatings does require a bit of training to get the hang of the administrative interface and it does require support staff to monitor, flag, and respond to reviews that are submitted (which can be a challenge depending on # of reviews and staffing levels).

Read full review Cons If you lack basic coding knowledge (or don't have someone on your team to set this up) it may be a bit of a challenge to get started. The backend has a bit of a learning curve to it, but can be worked through easily with persistence.

The "Reports" feature could be explained in more depth. Read full review Support Rating

My experience was with simple software like Google My Business, but for some Reviews & Ratings, it was good enough and supplied my demand. Once the Google world is one of the bests environments for initial and small businesses, I think using their tools someway we can sound better. If it's not the case PowerReviews will serve as well.

We use both
and ResellerRatings, as they handle slightly different aspects of services (product versus service).
Read full review Return on Investment Custom components and PowerReviews API can display positive customer feedback from an element. In return for honest reviews and answers to customer questions, we provide genuine and authentic feedback and let customers strain new products. Syndicated reviews help customers see how products work in real life, which increases trust in our website/business and the products and boosts conversions. Read full review ResellerRatings has had a positive impact on ROI by allowing us to quickly gather user ratings/reviews and integrate the aggregate review with Google's paid search ads (via star ratings showing in ads) ResellerRatings has also had a positive impact on our business by allowing us to collect reviews and display on our website without the need for internal development resources and IT work (which would have been very costly for us). One thing we had wanted to accomplish through the use of ResellerRatings was to display reviews on our website and provide that detail to Google in a consumable format which would result in star ratings showing in our organic search results. However, we were not able to accomplish this and Google never picked up our rating from the ResellerRating's widgets, so that was a bit of a letdown. Read full review ScreenShots
