Ratings and Reviews

Reviews on the WooCommerce.com marketplace enable us to better inform customers about our products and services, and help with purchasing decisions. They also give customers a chance to pass feedback to our support and product development teams.

Guidelines ↑ Back to top

Reviews must:

Relevant

  • Be about the product you purchased and/or support you received. Reviews that criticize the Marketplace Terms (such as pricing or subscription terms), rather than the product they’re associated with, will be removed.
  • Provide an explanation of the rating. Reviews that simply say ‘Great!’ or ‘Doesn’t work’ won’t help other customers understand a product better.
  • Be longer than 10 words.
  • Not be a link or advertisement for third-party products or services,
  • Not be a “Support Request”.
  • Be about the current available version, not a past release.

Truthful

  • Be accurate and honest. For example, if you say you’ve reached out to developers for support, we’ll verify that, and remove the review if it’s not true.

Appropriate

  • Contain no spam, profanity, or affiliate links.
  • Not include personal information, such as your email address, phone number or mailing address.
  • Not direct people to a competing product or competing marketplace, unless your review explicitly calls out a feature or functionality disparity.

If we consider a review to be irrelevant or inappropriate, we’ll remove it and give the reviewer an explanation and the opportunity to revise and resubmit their review for publication.

We reserve the right to determine whether a review violates our guidelines.

Ratings are associated with a specific version of an extension.
