        Installing Yotpo

        We’ll guide you through the following steps to make sure everything runs smoothly:

        From the Yotpo installation wizard, do the following:

        1. Customize your automatic review request email.
        2. Customize your Reviews Widget.
        3. Click to open your Shopify theme editor. The editor will open in a new tab.
        It’s important you open the editor from this link so we can enable Yotpo on your store. You can verify that Yotpo is enabled by going to Theme Settings > App embeds, and checking that Yotpo Reviews is toggled on.

        From your Shopify theme editor, do the following:

        1. On the left of your screen, add a block or section, depending on where you want to place the Reviews Widget and/or Star Rating.
        2. Select and add the Reviews Widget, and place it in your desired location.
        3. (optional) Add the Star Rating in the same way.
        4. Click Save.
        Please note:
        By default, the reviews and star rating will reflect the product the shopper is looking at. If you want to display the reviews and star rating for a different product, you can adjust the product in the relevant app block.

        From the installation wizard, click Continue to Yotpo Reviews to continue setting up your Yotpo Reviews account.
