Redirect Product reviews to dedicated reviews page

Recommended Posts

Recently we have turned on the recent product reviews update from square space. This seems useful as we would like to collect reviews and feedback, and it automates the email to prompt users to leave feedback 14days after the item is marked as fulfilled.

 

The issue we have is our products are temporary one off creations which are often removed from the store once they are marked as sold out.

Squarespace's solution to reviews are only available on the individual product, or to present every review in the store on every product, which does not seem appropriate.

I would like to move the reviews to a dedicated reviews page, but squarespace does not seem to have developed product review blocks.

It seems there must be a backend call for presenting the reviews as the html seems auto-generated for the reviews section.

Does anyone know if this backend call can be used to pull down product reviews to be displayed on a dedicated reviews page?

Unfortunately, the built-in reviews feature won't be useful for product-specific reviews if your products are not enduring. The reviews feature is fairly new (in Squarespace terms) and at the moment operates like a sealed black box with no options available that would allow you to tweak it. You cannot display product reviews in other ways, export them for use in other blocks or timing of customer emails. You cannot even check if customers have received the review request emails or opened them.

For the time being, if you need to collect product reviews, you may want to consider third-party review services like yotpo, although it will require you to paste code into the site for the reviews to be collected and displayed.
