Prodcut review and rating solution WordPress

Hi Guys

I'm working on this site that has products listed.

Example: http://www2.naty.com/baby-care/nappies/nappies-size-1/

They dont actually buy from this site.

What is the best way for me to implement a product reveiw an rating system for each product?

Thanks
Steve

Hi Steve,

Why not use WooCommerce?

[[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/woocommerce/"]]http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/woocommerce/[[/LINK]]

[[LINK href="http://winkpress.com/ecommerce/shopping-cart/woocommerce/"]]http://winkpress.com/ecommerce/shopping-cart/woocommerce/[[/LINK]]

It has reviews and you can use this plugin to add star rating: [[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gd-star-rating/"]]http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gd-star-rating/[[/LINK]] The author is an [[LINK href="http://wpquestions.com/user/profile/id/705"]]expert here at wpquestions[[/LINK]]

Then people might actually start buying from the site.

Regards,
Gabriel

Hi Gabriel

thanks for taking the time to reply to my question.

I will definately suggest this to my client as it seems to be the logical way forward.

They are pretty set in thier ways and already have an external shop operational.

My job is to bring their static html site over to Wordpress for them. My goal then is to show them how much better AND easier they can make the eccomerce function using the plug ins you have suggested.

Thanks again
Steve

[[LINK href="http://www.myreviewplugin.com/"]]MyReviewPlugin[[/LINK]] is far and away the best premium review + rating plugin. It offers the most flexible api to make exactly the kind of reviews you want. I looked through all of the others out there and every other one has some major holes. I highly recommend it.

If you just want a basic solution, [[LINK href="http://authorhreview.com/"]]Author hReview[[/LINK]] is a newer release that offers the essentials (like putting the star ratings in search engine results). They have a free and pro version.
