Adding Reviews to WordPress is as Simple as Using These Plugins

Reviews build trust and credibility, and websites that sell products or services can boost their sales and help nudge buyers into making a purchase by including reviews on their website. When 84% of people trust online reviews as much as they trust input from their friends, it makes reviews a must-have for every business.

Adding reviews to a WordPress site is easy, and with a variety of plugins that offer reviews, you have plenty of options to choose from.

WP Product Review Pro

WP Product Review is the leading plugin for WordPress reviews, and it’s great because it allows for shortcodes to be used to put reviews exactly where you want them to be located on the page. Full customization allows the plugin to be used with virtually any theme.

When writing a blog post, all you have to do is click on the “review option,” and you can make it into a product review.

There's a customizable review table, you can add comparison tables, and you can even add in Amazon product information with the click of the import button.

Not only can you use this plugin to write your own reviews, but you can use the plugin to collect reviews submitted by users.

Customer Reviews for WooCommerce

WooCommerce is a leading, free e-commerce solution for WordPress. A lot of companies opt to use WooCommerce because it’s robust and well-tested. What’s really nice is that you can add customer reviews quickly.

Customer Reviews for WordPress is a great option, and it’s been tested up to WordPress version 5.0.3. What’s nice about this plugin is that it is robust, and the developer knows that there are many ways to leave reviews.

You can:

  • Send review reminders
  • Enhance your customer reviews
  • Offer discounts for a person leaving a review
  • Aggregate reviews
  • Import reviews

You also have the option of integrating the plugin with Google Shopping and even add trust badges to your site.

It's an easy way to get your medical supply company up and running with reviews. And you don’t need to use an expensive, third-party platform to help aggregate your reviews from around the Internet.

The plugin also supports dozens of languages, so it’s fast to get up and running no matter the language you or your customers speak.

Rich Reviews

If you need a simple, free plugin to use for your WordPress site, Rich Reviews is definitely a great option. The plugin allows you to do a few things:

  • Add your own reviews to your products
  • Use shortcodes to display reviews anywhere on your site
  • Collect user reviews with strict approval options to help curb spam reviews

You'll find that the no-fluff plugin is a great starting point for any site that wants to start adding reviews without worrying about complicated settings. There are also sidebar widgets that allow you to add reviews of products in the sidebar of the page to take up as little “real estate” as possible.

These are just a few of the great plugin options for WordPress, and none of them require you to use a third-party, paid service like a lot of websites tend to use.
