Virtuemart Product Review Component
« on: April 23, 2014, 16:56:18 pm »
At last - an Amazon style reviews component for Virtuemart



In other words users can only review products that they have actually bought. The Admin can of course add new reviews and moderate/edit existing reviews.

At the moment any VirtueMart registered user can review any product whether they have bought it or not.

The package can also handle "one off" products as it stores each purchased products details and user information to a separate component which the administrator has full control over.


Even if the product is later deleted from VM there record is still kept along with the image in the VMReview component.

It can also be set up to send review reminder emails to the purchaser after a set period of time.

 Full information is available here: Virtuemart 3-2 Product Review Package Instruction PDF

You can test it here at GJC Web Design VM 3-2 Product Review

You can download it here - Virtuemart 3-2 Product Review Component Download Price is €40.00

When an order is confirmed in your Virtuemart shop a plugin stores the details of each product purchased along with the product image and can even be set to copy this image to a save folder so if the product is later deleted the images are still available.

Depending on your settings a reminder email can be sent out to the client after a configurable time asking them to review their product.

When the client logins to your site in the "My Account" area is an extra tab with all the products he has purchased (note products - not orders) and there they have the ability to place a review for each product or read the reviews they have placed before hand.

Of course there is full management for the Administrator to moderate, publish and set up new reviews.

The reviews can be displayed in multiple ways - either as a review page or as modules that can be set to display in various ways.

A lot more information is contained in our handbook which you can download here - Virtuemart 3-2 Product Review Package Instruction PDF .



There is full management and moderation of all reviews.






There are also lots of ways to display the resulting reviews



The user has a full over view of their purchases and reviews.

Is there a way for me to test the emails that will be sent to customers after purchase? I want to see how customizable that is.

Also, is there a way for me to test the whole plugin before I purchase because it is pretty expensive?

Hi, it's much more than a plugin

it is a full component with 3 plugins and a module - a complete reviews solution.. did you download the pdf etc and try the test site?

The emails are fully configurable thru the language ini's e.g.

VMCUSTOM_REVIEWS_SUBJECT="Review reminder from "
VMCUSTOM_REVIEWS_SUBJECT2="Review reminders sent. "
VMCUSTOM_REVIEWS_BODY1="Dear "
VMCUSTOM_REVIEWS_BODY2="On "
VMCUSTOM_REVIEWS_BODY3=" you purchased item "
VMCUSTOM_REVIEWS_BODY4=" from "
VMCUSTOM_REVIEWS_BODY5="If you are satisfied with this product we would be delighted if you would leave a review via our sites member area.\nSimply login and browse to 'Your Account' where you will be able to submit your review.\n\nThank you."

If you email me on webmaster@gjcwebdesign.com I can make you an admin for the site so you can trial it.

The component development continues.
Included in v1.4

1. Plugin and template over ride to show the appropriate reviews on the product details pages

2. Built in importer to import all orders that belong to registered customers. These purchases are then available for the client t add a review in their Account area and reminder emails can be sent out in batches automatically.

3. html mails with placeholders possible in the email plugin.

4. More info on the reviews component display and module plus linking to the product - all selectable.

5. Improved usability of the Account reviews section.

I am considering buying this component. But I am missing one thing: Google's rich snippets. Is it possible to add those to your component so product pages also display the rich snippets (review stars) in the google organic results.?

Hi, can't be difficult - what is the syntax that Google requires do you know?
And would that be the average rating?

Does this extension work? 

I tried logging into the test/demo site and get an "Invalid Token" error...

It looks like it might be a nice replacement for the standard, fairly limited review module, but...

Further upgrades made:

1. works with parent/childs
2. All reviews together in clients maintenance area where they can make and review their old reviews
3. Possible to send automatic multiple configurable html email reminders at set intervals for a configurable number of times
4. fully http://schema.org compatible
5. 'helpful' ranking of reviews
6. separate reviews views a la Amazon
7. problem free addition of ratings stars in any module or display
8. all reviews independent of the actual product .. so if the product is discontinued or one off you still have your reviews and images
9. import of all old orders as separate product purchases and you can kick off email reminders for these old orders
10. simple one line integration in any template

Hi GJC

What I meant in the other post is that it would be great that you sold the module too as a standalone module for core reviews also, cause there is no other around.

Just one question, can I migrate current reviews?

By migrate I mean even write them manually or in a nasty way via database. That would do :D
