It will probably come as no surprise to find out that customer reviews are an important feature to include on an ecommerce site.
They help to educate shoppers who are researching their purchase and reassure them that they are making the right decision.
We’re so used to seeing product reviews that it looks odd, perhaps even suspicious, when a site doesn’t include them.
In fact it could be argued that reviews are so common nowadays that there’s a danger consumers will become immune to their charms or will become dubious as to their validity.
Nonetheless, a new survey of 2,000 UK consumers by Trustpilot has found that three out of four British shoppers (77%) consult online reviews before buying online, so clearly reviews are still incredibly important for driving conversions.
