Old-order Review Request (New Updates)

Old-order Review Request has been firstly introduced on our app since 22nd Nov, 2021. And we believe that this feature could help our merchants a lot in collecting reviews from their previous buyers who already made purchases before merchants installed Ali Reviews.

Since our app is now embedded in Shopify, which requires some features’ rules must be altered accordingly so that they can perform properly in embedded apps as well as serve the user experiences better. We’d like to provide you with a clearer rule updated about this feature as below:

  1. What are the Old-order review requests?
    Old orders are counted as your fulfilled orders in the last 60 days prior to Ali Reviews installation, then you can start collecting reviews of these orders using the function of Email Review Request.
  2. How does this feature work?
    You can find this feature in Auto Request/ Email Review Request.

– Old-order review request is only available from Essential Plan, limited request is also based on each plan:
Essential: 500 orders
Premium: 1,500 orders
Enterprise: 2,000 orders

– This feature is a one-time request, which means all of your old-fulfilled orders shall be sent once and for all. Once you already sent old-order requests in any available plan, you would no longer send the remaining requests in any higher plan upgraded.
For example:

  • Total old-orders you got: 1,570
  • Your current plan: Essential
  • So the actual number of orders could be sent for request is 500 (Assuming that each order also gets valid emails)

– After the requests are successfully sent, you can track the number of success requests in the header notification on the function block, details can be also referred to the Request Dashboard in Auto Request menu.

Please be noted that:
A. Only orders with valid email could be sent for email requests.
B. In case, the number of requests is so huge, the email request could take a moment to be processed, you can check the request performance after the processing is done.
C. The remaining orders will be cut off for sending requests whether you have your plan upgraded or not.
D. For current users who still have remaining-old orders on waiting list to be sent in the following months, we’re sorry to inform you that those orders will no longer be able to be sent starting 20th Sep, 2022.

Thank you for your understanding with our updates.

Ali Reviews’ new navigation for a better performance

Many factors influence the user experience. However, nothing is more likely to drive users away from an app than confusing directions. We entirely understand; therefore, we have upgraded the navigation experience within Ali Reviews.

We restructured our navigation to make them more relevant to merchant demands, easier to find, and take less time to finish, allowing merchants to move quickly to the next stages of development. 

We’ll go through some changes here.

Ali Reviews’ new look in the app

Collect reviews

Request Dashboard

In the Request Dashboard section, we will remove from the Actions column two features that send review requests via QR code and Share as visual image.

In addition, we also change the Scheduled status to Reviewed when the order receives a customer review from the Request Generator Dashboard. 

Auto Request

We have divided the email templates part into a new section titled “Advanced customization in Email templates.” When you click on this, you’ll be directed to a new page where you can choose a suitable layout and customize your email. All of the email’s settings can be previewed.

Request Generator

The Request Generator page is equipped with smart features such as asking for reviews via social networks with dynamic messages, generating scannable QR codes, and automatic linking with email requests to encourage customers to submit reviews and boost sales.

Reviews Import

Besides, importing reviews from AliExpress, a CSV file, or in bulk is now easier and faster, thanks to the building of specific pages for each of these solutions.

Soon, we will have more powerful functions that will allow you to get more great reviews and make your reviews stand out even more, so keep an eye on them.

Come see for yourself how these improvements can help you maximize productivity!
