Here are some instructions and guidance to using the Product Reviews extension plugin:
1. Enable/Disable Product Reviews
This is a global setting to enable/disable product reviews on the website.
Choose your integration type. Either Default or Yotpo is currently available. With Default, it will use the integration we wrote with it’s data stored in your database and all files are used from within the extension.
Yotpo is a 3rd party product review service which you can choose if you want to use that instead. If you choose Yotpo, you’ll need to fill in an API Key and API Secret. Those fields will become available when you select the Yotpo integration.
3. Auto Approve Reviews
With this setting you can turn On/Off the auto approval of product reviews. It is recommended that you manually moderate and approve product reviews/ratings but the auto approval setting is available in case you want to use that. Tick/check this setting to turn on auto approval.
4. Admin Notification
Turning this on by ticking/checking the setting will send an email notification to the administrator of the website when a product review is submitted.
