Sync reviews from customers across multiple stores

The best use case for this feature is when you have the same products in 2 different stores. For example: yourstore.ca and yourstore.com (two different countries)

How to enable multi-store review syncing

To enable the feature:

  1. Click the user icon on the top right of your screen

  2. Select "Integrations"

  3. Click "Connect" on the "Fera Multi-store Sync" integration option

  4. Choose which stores you want to connect together and

  5. Hit "Save" to start the sync between them.

After you connect Fera will start a two-way sync between the stores. Syncs will occur automatically from then on.

Ensure your account has at least 2 stores with Fera installed and linked. If they are linked you will see the "switch store" icon on the top left next to your store name under the Fera logo.

See which store the review came from

When a review is submitted in another one of your stores and was synced over to the current store you're managing, you will be able to see the source store by editing the review and clicking on the "Other Details" tab as shown below.

If no source is specified it means that the review was originally submitted on the current store you're managing.

Some other info about how it works

Only approved content is synced over.

Only approved content is synced over. Pending content is not synced until it is approved. Declined content is not synced over.

Syncs are two-way

The sync goes two-ways. Reviews submitted on either site will automatically copy over to either site and vice versa.

That is, if you add a review on Site 1, it will get added to Site 2. Conversely, if you add a review to Site 2 then it will be added to Site 1.

Deletion is also synced

Deleting a review on either store that is connected will also be synced. A deleted review will get deleted across all stores that are connected with this feature.

How product reviews are linked to the right product

When a product review is synced from Store 1 to Store 2 Fera needs to figure out what product the review is written about in Store 2 that corresponds to the one in Store 1. This might seem trivial but it actually takes a lot of intelligent thinking for Fera.

Fera will try to match products based on the following attributes:

  • Store's own ID:

    • product_id

  • SKU or similar attributes:

    • sku

    • barcode

    • global_id

  • URL key attributes:

    • slug

    • handle

    • url_key

    • url_token

    • token

    • path

What this means is that if a review is written about product A in Store A, then it will be attached to product B in Store B if Product A and Product B have the same SKU, url handle, etc.
