Product reviews

WooCommerce basic review system is pretty simple and from an eCommerce point, not good enough. In Ecomly we added the 3rd Party plugin Photo Review (free version) which offers you a better review system. The review now will include the product image. With photos, the product reviews on your site will be more reliable. By that, the plugin will increase your sale and traffic.
