This module allows shop customers to rate products. A comparable score and a comment will be given. Depending on the configuration, the evaluation of products is allowed before or after the purchase of a product. You can use your own graphics for the ratings and thus adapt the display to your own corporate design.
This module is optionally available for the webshop of 21.COMMERCE and must be purchased separately.
After installing the module you will find it in the shop administration under ‘Marketing’ > ‘Article Reviews’.
After installation, you will find the module in the shop administration under Modules -> Product reviews.

We are now looking at a valuation run on the customer side. At least one item was purchased by a customer in the shop. This can now be evaluated after the purchase.
The number of open (still pending) reviews and the reviews already submitted are displayed in the customer account of the shop customer. This means that only recurring customers can give ratings, i.e. only those customers who have assigned themselves a login and password.

Administration of articles with ratings
The shop operator can have a limited influence on the ratings of his articles. This is very important so that negative or incorrect ratings are not maliciously displayed in the shop.
In the shop administration click on ‘Article’ > ‘Edit article’ and select the desired article. Here you can see by means of a box that the displayed article has received one or more ratings.

Article ratings evaluation
You can find the overview of ratings in the shop administration under Marketing -> Item ratings. All ratings are displayed here.
The shop owner can write and publish responses here. Ratings can also be deleted or deactivated.
With the button "Calculate average" you can calculate the average ratings. This is important, especially after you have deleted a rating.
