I haven't received any notification when customers post new reviews

  • This might happen when the checkbox in Settings/Notification named "Enable notifications when new reviews are submitted" is unchecked. Please make sure this checkbox is checked if you want to receive those notifications.

Why don't my imported review show up?

  • In case you import reviews from files, you might want to check the format of data you fill in the CSV files. Entering the wrong format of data is the most likely reason leading to your imported review not show up.
  • In case you import reviews from AliExpress and you make sure you paste the correct product URL, the reason should be you already import those reviews into Appio Reviews before so the app will exclude them to avoid review duplication.

How can I remove duplicated reviews?

  • In case of import from files, we define duplicated reviews are the same reviews from same source with the same reviewer (email address). Our app will reject them from import to the database. Therefore, you don't need to remove by yourself.
  • In case of import from AliExpress, each review will have unique "review_ID" and we always check if there are existing review_IDs in the database before importing them. That's why you also don't need to remove duplicated reviews as well.

How can I find "product handle"?

  • Go to a live product page on your store, product handle is the last part of product URL Example: https://yourstorename.myshopify.com/products/ t-shirt
    The handle of this product is " t-shirt"

Can I import 1000+ reviews from Amazon?

  • An Amazon product may have thousands of ratings, of which a few hundred are reviews. However, Amazon only displays a maximum of 100 reviews out of these few hundred. Therefore, our app can only fetch a maximum of 100 reviews for each Amazon product. For instance, this product has 2,203 ratings, but only 554 reviews, so the application can only import 100 reviews.

    In order to import desired reviews, you can import reviews multiple times with other URLs to increase the number of reviews of a product.

    Or you can use the feature "Show reviews summary from Amazon" to overcome this restriction. The maximum imported review is still 100 but the rating will show the total number. Please read detailed instructions about this feature here >> Show reviews summary from Amazon

Is there a maximum number of reviews that I can import?

  • If you are in Free Plan, your reviews import limit as followings:

How will I be charged if I upgrade/downgrade plans?

  • Please go to our Charging Terms and Conditions here

Why I got charged twice? Why I got charged during trial period?...

  • First and foremost, please make sure that you read and understand Shopify's terms and condition related to app charges (linked to Shopify's article here).
  • Secondly, please note that as app partners we do not and can not initiate charges. We only provide app offers and once approved by you, the merchant, on the Shopify's consent screen, it's passed onto Shopify billing systems, which would initiate charges based on what had been approved, according to above-mentioned terms and conditions. App partners don't have any control whatsoever of when or how much the charges are carried out for, and only receive a fraction of the total amount through a separate agreement with Shopify as app partners.
  • Having said that, if you encounter any billing related issues, we will try our best to support you with. Please provide us with evidence at your earliest convenience. This will allow us to investigate the underlying cause and liaise with Shopify to resolve it for you.

    If you got charged during trial period, most likely it's because the trial had expired according to Shopify's calculation (which could be down to the seconds but not just days). If you see 2 charges on Shopify bill, it's most likely because you have upgraded / downgraded during the billing cycle, and received charge items for each of the subscriptions accordingly.
