        Displaying ratings & reviews count

        Shopify & Shopify Plus

        Nosto natively supports Yotpo Reviews, so if your store is built on Shopify and you're using both Yotpo and Nosto, you can display Yotpo ratings by enabling these settings for each recommendation on the site.

        Once you've installed and configured Yotpo on your Shopify store, Nosto begins collecting the rating and review metadata automatically. There is no additional configuration required on Nosto's end!

        To enable Reviews Count and Ratings:

        1. Click On-Site
        2. Click Recommendations
        3. Click Choose a recommendation
        4. Toggle showReviewsCount
          1. Enabling this setting will show the number of reviews written about the product.
        5. Toggle showRating
          1. Enabling this setting will display the products average star-rating score.
        Adobe Commerce 1

        In Adobe Commerce 1, you can define Yotpo as the rating and reviews metadata provider by navigating to the configuration page and toggling Ratings source to Use Yotpo under the Ratings & Reviews section.

        Once you've enabled the rating and reviews metadata, you should be able to see the new product metadata collected by Nosto.

        Please note:
        Products that don't have any reviews will appear with (0 reviews) and will not display a star-rating.
