FAQ: How Does RatingScoop Work?
Step 1: Request Customer Feedback. Anytime, Anywhere
With 6 hassle-free ways to request feedback, there’s something for every kind of business.
Collect feedback directly from your website with our embedded button, or share your direct feedback link in your email signature.
Print on invoices, business cards, posters etc and customers can simply point their smartphone camera to leave feedback.
Setup an iPad/tablet based ‘kiosk’ so that your customers can leave feedback in-store at point of purchase or as they leave.
Invite a customer to give feedback by entering their name and email, and our system will do the rest, automatically.
Upload your customer email list and our system will automatically drip out feedback requests to eligible customers over time.
Connect your shopping cart or CRM (directly or via Zapier) and send feedback requests automatically from your favourite app.
Please Note: Kiosk and API are available on our Gold and Platinum plans only
Step 2: Sit Back As RatingScoop Handles The Feedback Collection Process Automatically For You
Whichever request method you use, your customer will be taken to our feedback form, which will be branded up with your company details. As feedback comes in, we’ll add it to your dashboard for your review, and let you know by email.
If the response is positive, we’ll encourage them to also leave a 3rd party review on the sites you care about most, including:
If it’s negative, the 3rd party reviews links are still there (we don’t allow ‘review gating’), but our focus is on getting them to send additional info privately, so you can resolve the issue and hopefully turn their experience into a positive one.

Here are the other FAQ’s we get:
Setup takes just a couple of clicks. You simply fill out your business profile and start requesting reviews. Then just add a snippet of code (or our WordPress plugin) to your website, and you can publish reviews to your website with a click as the come in.
Yes! You can upgrade, downgrade or cancel your current plan at any time via your account. You don’t even need to contact us! If you upgrade, we’ll prorate the unused portion of your current plan towards your new one.
No! We are constantly improving our software, and you get it all for FREE! Because RatingScoop is in the cloud, any time we add a new feature or make an update, it immediately shows up in your account.
No. Although RatingScoop works best when you have somewhere to show your 1st party reviews, it’s not a deal-breaker if you don’t, because you can still use it to collect more 3rd party reviews on Google, TripAdvisor, Facebook and Yell. You can also use the 1st party feedback you get for internal quality control and customer relations.
You do! All content (including your customers and reviews) is 100% owned by you. RatingScoop is just a tool for YOU to collect and display YOUR reviews. We operate as your data processor, and we don’t have permission to use your data for any other reason.
As with most SAAS (“software-as-a-service”) platforms, when you cancel your account, your data will become inaccessible. But don’t worry, you will have the opportunity to download CSV files of your reviews, or make your account “dormant” and we’ll keep everything backed up waiting so you can come back again later.
Yes, you can choose to add or ignore Google, Facebook, TripAdvisor, TrustPilot and Yell. You can also add your own custom review site if there is an important one in your industry.
Quite simply, because Yelp’s Business Owner Guidelines, which are part of their Terms of Service, says that businesses should not ask for reviews. So any review management service that offers Yelp probably doesn’t care much about your long term success.
Yes! We are fully committed to helping you succeed… so if you need help putting the review widgets on your website or have any questions, simply get in touch and our first class support team will be more than happy to assist.
