How do I set up invites with the Product Review Questionnaire Template?

There are two main ways of setting up the Product Review Questionnaire Template. You can either apply your Trustbadge integration or use an API (Application Programming Interface). The setup of your invites via the Trustbadge can be completed quickly, while the API allows you to send out review invites independent from Trusted Shops.

How can I collect Product Reviews via the Trustbadge?

The first requirement to collect Product Reviews is the successful unlocking of the product via your Upgrade Center. After that, you collect product reviews automatically via your existing Trustbadge integration. Only a few lines of code need to be added.

Depending on whether you used a shop software plugin for your integration or if you integrated the Trustbadge manually, the integration of Product Reviews works differently. In these instructions you will find the information you need:

How can I collect Product Reviews via APIs?

APIs are programming interfaces that enable communication via a code between two software programmes and allow the automated retrieval of data. An example of this would be the integration of Google Maps on your website.

If you want to collect Product Reviews via APIs, we have a suitable guide for you depending on your starting point regarding your API setup:

A: You have already established an API connection for your work with MyTS and now want to integrate it to eTrusted. Then this guide for the API connection to eTrusted is recommended:

B: As an eTrusted user, you have not used APIs so far, but would like to collect Product Reviews via APIs. Then we recommend this article and a look at the Developer Center:

Using the questionnaire link API to generate invites

Once your API setup is completed, you can proceed by using the Questionnaire Link API. This API generates a link you can use in your own mailing in order to send out links for questionnaires to your customers. For this, you are not reliant on the mailing from Trusted Shops. 

You can find detailed instructions in the Developer Center:

Additional questions

How can I stay updated on my received reviews?

You can find an overview of your received reviews in your “Inbox” in the Control Centre by clicking on "Filter" (01_32x32.png) and selecting "Product reviews" (02_32x32.png) in the section "Review type".


The Product Details are shown directly below the "Review Details" on the right side of the Control Centre.


More details on the review inbox can be found in this article: What are the main features of the Review Inbox?

Are reviews saved even if they were not filled in completely?

Yes, once customers have chosen a star rating and have clicked the button "Submit & continue", the review is submitted, counted and published. Additional review texts are both submitted and published after the final "Submit" button has been pressed. This is in accordance with GDPR guidelines.
