From zero to a 100 real quick: Migrate from Ali Reviews to Opinew

If you are looking for an all-in-one review management solution that works like an assistant, Opinew is the right tool for you.

You can import reviews from almost any online platforms (Amazon, Ebay, AliExpress Oberlo, Spreadr, Importify, Dropified) where your product is sold. There are different ways you can do that:

  • Using Opinew's Google Chrome Extension for 1 click imports of reviews in bulk
  • Using the import tool located directly inside the application.
  • Using Opinew's easy migration system from other review apps

On the other hand, Ali Reviews importing features can be limited if you are selling on multiple channels as they only offer importing reviews from AliExpress & Dsers. You can also use a custom CSV file to manually write or import reviews, but be prepared to fight a war of errors and complication. In summary, Opinew offers a broader range of marketplaces you can import from, allowing you to syndicate reviews to your Shopify store while making sure the social proof displayed on your shop is as converting as possible.

For collecting reviews, both apps offer these features:

  • Write a review directly on the product widget
  • Send review requests Emails & SMS to customers after they have made a purchase

Ali Reviews also gives you the possibility to schedule these emails to be sent depending on the country. Opinew has recently integrated with Aftership in order for you to do that but you will need to have both apps installed.

Regarding review widgets, Ali Reviews offers:

  • Review box (Grid, List, Carousel)
  • Review popup (Horizontal/vertical), and 4 styles of Carousel slider
  • Feature reviews on Homepage Carousel, Cart page or any page

Meanwhile, here's an overview of all the widgets Opinew provides starting from the lowest plan:

  • Product Reviews Widget, to display your reviews, questions & answers, and a button to leave a review.
  • Product Stars Rating, to show stars on the product & collection page. When clicked, jump to the reviews widget.
  • Collection Stars Rating, to show stars in collections. When clicked, it goes to the product page.
  • All Reviews Page, to show reviews from the whole shop on a dedicated page.
  • Review Carousel, to show a number of reviews selected by the merchant in a carousel view.
  • Footer & Email Badge, a badge that shows the average star rating for the whole shop.
  • Facebook Review Tab, to display your store’s reviews on your Facebook page.
  • Floating Review Widget, a sticky widget available on every pages, displaying all your store reviews when clicked.

Furthermore, Opinew offers great customization tools and almost all of them are accessible from the lowest plan. Using Opinew's CSS editor will allow you to make any changes to the widgets so they can match wih your theme perfectly & build even more trust on your website. If you are looking to customize your widgets, it's possible to do it with Ali Reviews but you will need to upgrade to their Essential plan. If you need to add custom questions and answers to your review widgets, you won't be able to as they do not offer this feature.

Both applications offer coupons & discounts that you can create to incentivize your past customers to leave a review.

In terms of integrations, both apps integrate with Google Shopping, Page Builders (Pagefly, GemPages), personalized searches & recommendations apps (Searchanise for AliReviews, FastSimon, BoostCommerce, Searchanise for Opinew) but Ali Reviews is missing email marketing integrations such as Klaviyo or Omnisend.

Why choose Opinew over Ali Reviews?

Ali Reviews provides easy to use features to import, display and collect reviews. However it's pretty limited if you are looking to:

- Integrate and automate workflows between diferrent Shopify apps (no email marketing integrations)

- Display questions and answers on the product page

- Display video reviews from your customers.

With Opinew's starting plan, you will have access to a complete solution to import from AliExpress, Amazon and Ebay, send SMS & Email review requests and display photo & video reviews with beautiful customizable widgets. The best thing? Just set it up once and it will work automatically from there.
