FROM ZERO TO A 100 REAL QUICK: MIGRATE FROM LOOX TO OPINEW

Opinew is the go-to solution for fast-growing Shopify merchants looking to fulfill their review management needs with one complete solution.

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 Opinew's easy migration system from other review apps
  • Using the import tool located directly inside the application.

On the other hand, Loox offers a great set of tools to import your reviews as well. Except they are more limited, and great essential online selling platforms where you could import your reviews, such as Amazon or Ebay, are not included. However, they created a great method where you will only need to bookmark a unique button they provide to import your reviews from AliExpress easily. In summary, Opinew offers a broader range of platforms you can import from and might be more suitable depending on your needs.

If you are selling on Amazon or a different marketplace, Opinew is the best choice to syndicate reviews to Shopify.

For collecting reviews, both offer these different features:

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

Loox includes inside the application the possibility to schedule these emails to be sent right after fullfilement or delivery of the order. Opinew has recently integrated with Aftership in order for you to do that but you will need to have both apps installed.

If you are looking to modify the widget's fonts & colors, as well as your emails appearance, you will have to upgrade to the Advanced plan. If you need to add custom questions, group some products together and remove Loox's branding, you will need to upgrade to the pro plan.

Been using Loox for the longest time. Just stumbled across this app today, and it has WAY better features such as multi-platform reviews, responding to reviews as comments, more color-coordination options to fit the theme of your site, etc. Very user-friendly and up-to-date. Support Chat replies super fast, too!
