Product Reviews & Rating Widget for Magento 2

This extension is also included in the Pearl Theme.

About Magento Product Reviews & Rating Widget.

Product Reviews Widget for Magento 2 allows adding product reviews to any page, not just product page. The simple yet powerful functionality allows to add review section to single product presentation pages, blocks, category pages, look books.

Simply edit desired page/block from your Magento admin, click Insert Widget, Product Reviews Widget, select the product from your product list and the review section from selected product is added to your page.

Product Reviews Widget for Magento 2 adds both review section and review form so that users will be able to submit product reviews directly from the presentation page without the need to visit the product page of that specific product.

Features of the Extension.

  • Reviews Listing and Form widget type - This widget type lets you place the Magento Reviews section, including the ability for users to submit their reviews on any page type without having to worry about Product Page Layout restrictions.
  • NEW: Review Summary Widget type - This widget type allows you to display the Review Summary (number of reviews and stars), as well as the "Leave a Review" link for specific products anywhere on the store.
  • Create look books and add product reviews to increase your conversion rate.
  • Create beautiful presentation pages and include user opinions to encourage purchases.
  • Display Product Reviews in a carousel (Requires the Magento 2 Owl Carousel and Banner Slider extension).
