Ratings & Reviews enables you to collect and publish authentic feedback from your customers. Consumers can review products and services, ask questions, and post photos and video of their experiences with your products. Leveraging user-generated content (UGC) can increase sales and build brand loyalty.

Note: In most cases, your implementation team helps you complete these tasks before you go-live with Ratings & Reviews. You can reference these topics to learn more about the process or to revisit the settings you chose during initial configuration.

Use the topics in this section to learn how to:

  • Complete initial setup tasks required for collection, such as uploading your product catalog and installing BV Pixel.
  • Gather ratings and reviews.
  • Gather questions and answers.
  • Request reviews using review requests (formerly post-interaction email or PIE).
  • Customize the submission forms and email messages your contributors receive or interact with.
