Reviews.io
Reviews.io is a great option for any ecommerce site that is looking to gather company and product reviews to help make the customer purchasing decision easier. Their BCC integration appears to make it possible to use their services with any platform so long as you can edit the email order confirmation templates.

I believe that if you can, avoid *ever* creating a profile on any of these third-party review websites. Online reputation management can be expensive, tedious, and frustrating. Keep all your reviews on your own website, and skip the noise of third-party review platforms. You can use your social profiles (ie. Google, Facebook, LinkedIn) for verified testimonials if needed. From firsthand experience, Trustpilot will deliberately allow fake and malicious reviews, then ask you for hundreds of dollars a month just to reply or remove the spam content.

  • Removing inaccurate/faulty reviews. It's hard to talk to people about removing some inaccurate reviews.
  • Product reviews should be visible on search engines too.
  • Review requests email templates are not the best.

Support Rating
Reviews.io
We had to reach out a few times during the setup process and we never had to wait more than a few minutes to get a response via their online chat. When a more in-depth answer was required they followed up via email and pulled in other team members when necessary.

I've rarely had issues and needed support. During the implementation phase we relied on their support heavily and they were very knowledgeable, responsive and helpful. Any questions I've had have been answered promptly by my account manager. They also have a great knowledgebase for self-service support.

Reviews.io has a similar product offering as the other well known review collection companies. However, they are much more competitive in terms of pricing and that was a big influence on our decision to go with them. They also have a library of widgets you can choose from and customize to make publishing reviews on your website very easy. It's not a cookie cutter solution, which we really like.

Selected Trustpilot because of superior integration with the website and Google SERPS. Again, my only complaint would be Trustpilot was relatively more expensive than the other technologies.
