A great solution for integrating google reviews into your website

This is a great plugin. Well though out with an easy to use, highly customisable back end. You Can add reviews anywhere on your site using short code or a widget. I have an old custom theme which doesn’t have a widget section so had to use short code instead. Also really helpful customer support if you get stuck.

Great widget!

It was super easy to get up and running. Will definitely upgrade to pro as soon as I need additional features. Thank you!

Beautiful, Customizable and Easy To Use

Tried 3 other plugins and none of them appeared how I wanted. I finally found this one!
It’s easy to use and allowed me to customize which reviews and how I wanted them to appear. Tons of settings in the pro version. Definitely worth the price!

Awesome Support

Was having a hard time trying to get the last part of this connected for my client and couldn’t find any resources that would help our situation. So I suggested that my client purchase this plugin and then we still couldn’t connect with the Google Place ID. I emailed the support team and got a response back within 10 minutes on a Sunday morning too. After a few email exchanges, they were able to get it connected! I am thrilled of their quick response and its a wonderful plugin. I still have the Facebook and Yelp to add but that will get done this week. I highly recommend that you purchase this plugin it really makes a difference and the support team is totally awesome!!

Prompt Support

My plugin wasn’t showing my business when I used the search. I contacted the support team and they were so prompt on helping me. Exchanged few emails with them and now the plugin is working perfectly. It’s a great tool to attract more clients as well as it help with the SEO.
