Online Customer Reviews Feb 22, 2021

On this post we're going to talk about importing reviews from eBay to your Shopify store. Browse our list of tools that can help you do that & read our quick tutorials to get you started.

The fastest way to get reviews is by importing them. And if one or more of the products you're offering on your Shopify store were imported from eBay, you may find yourself having a bit of trouble while attempting to import reviews. Don't worry, we're gonna help you find a solution to your problem and you're going to be importing reviews from eBay in no time.

That being said, we should also remind you that you shouldn't rely only on importing reviews. Sending review requests should be an important part of your strategy towards creating social proof. If you want to know how to send review requests automatically check out our post on that here.

But hey, let's get back to importing reviews from eBay. Most review apps don't have this functionality. If you're looking to import reviews from AliExpress, sure, they've got you covered. But eBay? It's a totally different story.

So which are your options then?

Product Reviews is an app made by Shopify and it's free. It has an overall rating of 3.7 out of 1412 reviews.

How To Do It

Importing reviews with this app is a little bit more complicated. It involves working with CSV (comma separated values) files. If you're already familiar with CSV files and feel comfortable working with them, then maybe give this a shot.

If you're not familiar with that, it can be a little overwhelming.
