The Challenge

Before implementing Opinew on its multi-language network of Ecommerce sites, Australian Bodycare faced the following problems:

  • Difficulties displaying Amazon reviews on product pages :
  • Australian Bodycare’s Amazon listings had significant numbers of reviews. But the absence of an automated syncing process meant that these reviews were unavailable to customers on the company’s Shopify stores. Importing these reviews manually on an ongoing basis was prohibitively time-consuming and resource-intensive.

  • Limited SEO-optimization of reviews on product pages :
  • Australian Bodycare was eager to optimize product pages so that review snippets would appear in Google search results. It was probable that the absence of SEO-optimized reviews was resulting in lost search traffic.

  • Lack of an integrated feature-set for product reviews :
  • Along with a dedicated area for showcasing product reviews on product pages, Australian Bodycare wanted to display question-and-answer (Q&A) sections where customers could submit queries, receive responses, and read previous questions.

    The Opinew team are super kind and always treat their customers with great respect!
