Increase Customer Confidence

Essendant's Ratings and Review service provides your website with real feedback from other end users, helping push new customers from the “consideration” stage to the point of purchase.

Watch this short video to learn how you can make sure when visitors ask ‘should I buy this’,  your website has the content to answer ‘yes’.

Why Reviews Are Important:

  • Customers trust in eCommerce websites that have reviews from actual customers.

  • Shoppers can get an understanding of the product’s strengths and weaknesses, businesses often see a reduction in returns and abandoned carts after integrating a ratings and review service on their website.

  • Shoppers now look to this type of user generated content to answer a variety of questions, essentially moving them from the consideration stage to purchasing.  Don’t let a website visitor doubt their purchasing decision and leave before placing an order. Get the ‘yes’ and get the order!
