Better Reviews For WooCommerce


Better Reviews for WordPress is a complete replacement for the existing reviews system used by WooCommerce.

Make your reviews more trustworthy and increase conversions with:

  • A fixed 7 point rating for stars
  • Allow you to define individual product attributes
  • Reviewers can note attributes about themselves, and review viewers can sort through reviews by individual product attribute
  • Includes review author characteristics tied to the review to add more context
  • Calculate averages to display on product page for both for product rating and product attributes
  • Verified reviews for WooCommerce – if the user purchased the product, the review gets flagged as verified
  • Display WooCommerce review data for customers – a visual aggregate of the review data is shown above the list, including rating breakdowns, averages, etc.

Care for the back-end of your site by making your reviews more reliable:

  • Better Reviews for WooCommerce replaces the existing WooCommerce comment system, both front and back end
  • Stores data in custom tables instead of comments
  • Set WooCommerce reviews to pending – all reviews are set pending on submission

WooCommerce reviews has needed this for so long. It's perfect to give the potential customer an easier way to pull information that is important to them when making the decision to buy. It also gives the store owner much deeper insights into the product itself and what makes it tick in the minds of the customer.

It has always bugged me that WooCommerce's review were built on "WP Comments". It's too limited. This plugin lets you collect valuable feedback from customers while sharing that to encourage others to be more confident in their purchase decision.
