CS-Cart "Power reviews" add-on

Power Reviews


The add-on extends the default reviews and comments features, allowing the administrator and clients to get the most out of them. Thanks to the attributes (parameters) for precise product evaluation, ability to upload photos and videos, separate fields "Advantages and Disadvantages" and user experience information you will easily get detailed reviews that will be really useful to your customers. The system of likes allows customers to put the most useful reviews to the top,  and the “verified purchase” marks for the reviews will add more trust. A flexible review approval system will allow customers to change or delete their reviews, and special blocks with the most positive/negative reviews and a recommendation block will allow the client to quickly navigate and make a purchase decision. The add-on features allow you to import old reviews created before add-on installation, as well as place old and new reviews in a special block with different options for templates and settings.

Enter the comma separated URLs of the storefronts where this product will be used.
Select the CS-Cart edition on which you will use the add-on.
The update period determines the period of time when you can get access to the new versions of this add-on compatible with the new versions of CS-Cart software released during the chosen period.
To instal the add-on, we will need the FTP access to your server. Please send it along with the order number to sales@cart-power.com once the order is paid.

! Attention, the add-on is not compatible with the default "Product reviews" add-on in CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor version 4.13.X. If you are using this version, you need to turn "Product reviews" add-on off.

How Does the Power Reviews Add-on Help to Increase Sales?

When making a purchase decision, customers are increasingly studying the reviews of those who have already purchased the product they are interested in. For them, the most convincing proof of the excellent quality of goods and the professionalism of the vendor is a large number of positive reviews and recommendations.

Use Every Bit of Information

Import old reviews of the default add-on, display reviews for product variations - this will help visitors get more useful information.

Get More Quality and Informative Reviews

Create rating attributes (parameters) for products, categories, vendors, or store evaluation, this will greatly simplify the task of writing a review. The "Advantages and Disadvantages" fields will highlight the main advantages and disadvantages of the product. Allow images and videos for reviews - often such proofs of purchase are much more informative than words.

Get More Trust and Increase Conversion

Include blocks "Most positive" and "Most critical". The presence of negative reviews increases trust - it is more likely that comments are live, they are not deleted. And the answers from the administration indicate that they are being listened to.

Highlight your customer reviews with an additional “Verified Purchase” mark. Such reviews generate more credibility, and more credibility means more sales.

Add administrator comments to the review. This will allow you to answer the questions to the site administration asked in the review and successfully work with the negative reviews. Remember - a negative review can also increase the conversion of the site if it is responded promptly.

Get unique content and additional traffic.

Reviews are always a source of unique, constantly updated content that is indexed by search engines and attracts additional traffic. Mark up reviews using our JSON-LD Markup add-on and the product rating will be shown in the snippet in the search results. The more useful information in a snippet, the more space it takes, the higher chances that it will be clicked on.


A customizable page with all reviews will be useful for both buyers and search engines.

Show reviews where you need to by placing a block with reviews and setting it up for filling with reviews about products / store / pages / categories / vendors.

Great add-on. Good reviews are more than needed for any ecommerce business. With this add-on, we were able to personalize the review attributes for our products. We needed some adjustments and CART-POWER provided great customer service. Well done !!!

Отличный функционал модуля, но только он почему то даже у вас на демо витрине не работает((((
Жду весь функционал на cs cart 4.2
Количество настроек (при этом не сложно в них разобраться)
Возможности самого модуля. Наконец то отзывы можно показать там, где хочется и не просить при этом программиста, и не тратить на это деньги.

Не понравилось.
Нет русского языка. По крайней мере на версии 4.3.6 cs-cart. В админке приходится переключаться на английский.
